| Maui Users,
| I have a 36 Node systems with 8 to 12 cores in each node and have
| users submit up to 1000 jobs at a time. The issue is that the
| cluster will only run about 90 of them at a time with 85 out of the
| 344 processors active and only 12 of the nodes being used. The jobs
| are all going to the default queue and there are no node or
| cpu/memory parameters added to the submissions.
| Each job runs for about 20 min.

| Any ideas on how to get maui to schedule more jobs to the nodes?
