[Mauiusers] node allocation issue

Our job scheduler is acting little weird. The jobs submitted are going 
on only a few nodes and each node is running more jobs than the total 
number of CPUs on that node. We have not changed anything recently.
Can anyone suggest what is the best node allocation policy that make 
sure we do not run more jobs than number of cores available on a node 
and jobs are evenly distributed on all the nodes and not on the few nodes?
