But I can!
First make sure you are running the latest torque or at least 2.1.1 which
fixed a lot of bugs.

Then - I had problems with the maui-side of things.

I had the problem of maui not recognizing free nodes sometimes OR the retry
to find a free node was too high.
Also, in maui-3.2.6p16-snap.1155916970.tar.gz there are a couple of timers
set to a shorter value e.g. with "deferred" jobs etc so they will be
re-considered faster for scheduling.
Retry it with this snapshot and compile against the actual torque-version
you are using (the snapshot also fixed issues with preemption).

If you don't need maui features like preemption or reservation then simple
go with the pbs_sched which has served me well for over 2 years with
millions of jobs.
