The mjobctl command is a scheduler command - it will send STOP/CONT 
signals to the job and Torque will know about it.  In effect, you're 
doing manual preemption.  With qhold/qrls, you're telling a running job 
to checkpoint and vacate the node (if supported) and enter the HELD 
state, or for a queued job to enter a HELD state and not be scheduled 
for execution until it's been qrls'd to the QUEUED state.
