[torqueusers] Maui Preemption

     This change definitely made a difference. The lower priority running
job was interrupted by the submission of the higher priority job. However,
the low priority job was placed back in a "Q" state. I was expecting both
would show "R" with the low priority being suspended. Maybe the suspension
can't occur because both jobs are "parallel"( I am using LAM). In any
event, I am making progress.
      Thanks for the advice,

Try adding the following to your maui.cfg:

CREDWEIGHT             1
QOSWEIGHT              1

The weights for the priorities need to be set up.  You can verify that
things have been setup correctly by doing a checkjob on the job and
examining its "start priority".  It should be higher for the jobs in the
"normal" QOS.

Hope that helps,
