[torqueusers] Consumable Generic Resources

Hi, 

on a cluster of bipro, I try to define two queues. Each queue must work only 
on one processor of each machine.
I try to use the definition of new parameters in configuration file of mom to 
limit the resources available by adding :
paraproc 1

Then torque can see the new resource :
pc115
     state = free
     np = 2
     ntype = cluster
     status = arch=linux,uname=Linux pc115 2.4.18-27.7.x #1 Fri Mar 14 
05:51:23 EST 2003 i686,sessions=1557 1800 8643 8690 8691 31340 31801 
31917,nsessions=8,nusers=1,idletime=0,totmem=1553292kb,availmem=1368448kb,physmem=1031188kb,ncpus=1,loadave=2.46,gres=paraproc:1,netload=754986458,state=free,rectime=1120231575

Then if I try the following command :

qsub -I -l nodes=1:ppn=1, other=paraproc
or
qsub -I -l nodes=1:ppn=1, software=paraproc

no restriction on parameter seems to be efficient ( I can submit many times 
with execution state).

I work with Torque-1.2.0p4. Maui don't resolve the problem.

Do I make a mistake in submission ?
Is it only available with moab ?
Do you know another approach to do that ?
"Properties" don't give me an answer in separating processor in a node...

Thank in advance.

Frederick
