how much disk space does /var/spool/torque/server_priv typically use ?

how about the maui scheduler ? should it be running on both headnodes, 
trying to communicate with localhost ?

I'm a little confused by the example, where the scheduler runs on the 
the hosts as pbs_mom and not pbs_server... is the intent to also 
failover the scheduler along with the shared file system ?

thanks again.
