Thanks for your suggestion.
I forgot to mention the routing queue. I created the queue route which is
act as a routing queue, and my server default_queue was route. I configured
the queues through acl_hosts (not acl_users, because single guy will submit
all types of jobs).
And finally onemore thing I was not clear about resources_max. In the
webpage it gave "set queue batch resources_max.nodect=16". Actually what its
saying, and what is mean by nodect. Can you please explain me about
resources_max. In webpage it given "specifies the maximum resource limits
for jobs submitted to the queue". Here resource limits means?. Is it depends
on memory or walltime like that? or anything else?.
