Dave,

I don't want to limit the resources for a single job, that's what the
resources_max.resource_name=value' attribute does. I want to limit the
sum of the resources used by all the jobs in a queue and that's what the
'resources_available.resource_name=value' is supposed to do, but it's not
working at all. Please refer to the man pages for pbs_queue_attributes(7B).

Dennis,

  You will want to use 'resources_max.resource_name=value' instead of
resources_available.  The resources_available attribute is a system
derived value which indicates what is actually available (ie, the sum of
resources visible and available within the cluster).  The resources_max
attribute is an admin defined limit which limit the  resources available
to any given job.

Dave
