|the big question is whether an individual CPUset is created by 
|pbs_mom for each job or not. Reserving some dedicated 
|resources for system processes or interactive work of course 
|is a first step - but what you usually want are dedicated 
|resources (in terms of fixed CPUs and fixed "local" memory) 
|for all individual PBS jobs.
|It's not clear to me if (how) you configured the latter or not.
|torque-2.2-(snapshots) might be able to do that somehow ...

No, as I said in my earlier mail it is the simple approach.  All jobs and the daemons run in /batch, therefore so do their children, the jobs.  I don't (currently) attempt to create the cpusets "on the fly" for each job.  As you say, a first step, but one that works for us at the moment.
