However, I think it would be better to build a queue around certain nodes :)
 eg. nodes for long jobs / nodes for short shorts / ...

#> set queue <queue> resources_default.neednodes = <attribute>

So, nodes file:
node01 long
node02 long
node03 long
pc123 short
pc124 short

#> set queue long resources_default.neednodes=long
#> set queue short resources_default.neednodes=short

Et voila - jobs in submitted to queue long will only run on nodes 1-3.
