[torqueusers] Problems with using torque on a single workstation.

I have a decent linux workstation (two dual-core x64 CPUs). To make it
easier to submit jobs to this workstation, I installed torque today.
The services are running but the pbs scheduler seems not be able to
accept many jobs.. For example, if I submit 100 jobs, most of them
will fail with message like (in sched_logs)
08/21/2006 16:04:28;0040; pbs_sched;Job;3631.localhost.localdomain;Not
enough of the right type of nodes available
My server_priv/nodes has
and mom_priv/config has
(I do not really know what max_load is).
Also, I notice that the /proc/cpuinfo shows 8 CPUs so I guess the
system can also make use of hyper threading of each core. I try to set
nodes as 'localhost np=8', but the service crashes quickly. Can torque
make use of hyper-threading?
Many thanks in advance.
