[torqueusers] having problems distributing jobs

I have just installed torque ad set up a bunch of queues. I have two 
quad core machines added as nodes. When I submit a couple of jobs via 
qsub -q SHORT to the queue, they all get queued and just one is executed 
at a time. Nor is a job started on the same machine using a different 
core, nor is it run on the other node! Any suggestions to this kind of 


see my config here:

# Create and define queue SHORT
create queue SHORT
set queue SHORT queue_type = Execution
set queue SHORT max_running = 6
set queue SHORT resources_max.cput = 02:00:00
set queue SHORT resources_max.mem = 900mb
set queue SHORT resources_max.ncpus = 4
set queue SHORT enabled = True
set queue SHORT started = True

# Set server attributes.
set server scheduling = True
set server log_events = 511
set server mail_from = adm
set server resources_default.nodes = 1
set server scheduler_iteration = 600
set server node_check_rate = 150
set server tcp_timeout = 6
set server pbs_version = 2.1.10
