In case you have default nodect set to 1, users can submit single CPU
jobs without specifying "-l nodes" qualifier. The problem with that
is all the jobs submitted without the qualifier get scheduled on a
single node, thus overloading the node.
Is there way of changing this behaviour?
I am using torque-1.1.0p4.
