Thanks for your response. Those settings helped, jobs are now being
sent to all the nodes except now only one job is being sent to each

Each of my execution nodes has 2 cpus, and each of my jobs only
requires only one cpu. So I need each node to get two jobs at a time.
However, when I submit many jobs, only one job is getting sent to
each node, and the other jobs are waiting in the queue and are not
sent to a node until the single job already on the node is finished.

I've tried using 

        qsub -l nodes=1:ppn=1 myjob

but that doesn't make any difference.

How can I get it to give each node as many jobs as it has CPUs?
