|Good morning, everyone.


|I am currently running a cluster with 8 dual-core nodes with TORQUE
|and Maui.  As TORQUE is currently set up, if I submit (say) 16 jobs to
|the cluster, then 8 of them start executing and the other 8 go into
|the queue.  How do I tell TORQUE (or possibly Maui?) that it is OK for
|there to be two (or possibly more?) jobs allocated to a given node?

We use a script to add nodes to torque.
In that script, we set the number of
processors a node has, e.g.:

   qmgr -c "s n $host np=2"

[Actually we do this based on data in /proc/cpuinfo,
but you get hte idea.]
