[Mauiusers] setting busy status in funciotn of disk space and cpuload

We have this in our mom configs:
size [fs=/tmp]

This makes the size resource hold the space available in /tmp

Then we do:

qsub -l ddisk=5gb

Or you could set a default for ddisk for a queue or server.

It should only run on nodes with the proper amount of free
space. I'm sure you can do this other ways, but I don't have
experience with those. Hopefully you can adapt this to what
you need.
