My post stands corrected. ncpus is not in TORQUE. However, ppn does mean
processors per node
(http://www.clusterresources.com/products/torque/docs/2.1jobsubmission.shtml#resources
- see nodes) The -l nodes=1:ppn=2:ncpus=3 creates more ambiguity. 

Processes is not a well defined term for TORQUE. What does it mean to have 2
processes with 3 cpus each. TORQUE views process and processor as the same
thing.
