[torqueusers] resources_max / resources_min

Many thanks for reply. However, I did not figured out what does
`nodect` means. `man pbs_resources` says nothing about this.

I created a test queue with nodect attributes:

Queue: TEST
    queue_type = Execution
    max_user_queuable = 1
    total_jobs = 0
    state_count = Transit:0 Queued:0 Held:0 Waiting:0 Running:0 Exiting:0
    max_running = 1
    acl_host_enable = False
    acl_hosts = compute-0-9,compute-0-8,compute-0-7,compute-0-6,compute-0-5,
        compute-0-14,compute-0-4,compute-0-13,compute-0-3,compute-0-12,
        compute-0-2,compute-0-11,compute-0-1,compute-0-10,compute-0-0
    resources_max.nodect = 1
    resources_max.nodes = 1
    resources_max.pmem = 1800mb
    resources_max.walltime = 400:00:00
    resources_min.nodect = 1
    resources_min.nodes = 1
    resources_default.nodect = 1
    resources_default.nodes = 1
    mtime = 1213290507
    resources_available.nodect = 1
    max_user_run = 1
    enabled = True
    started = True

But jobs are fail to start. Maui says:
job cannot run in partition DEFAULT (idle procs do not meet
requirements : 0 of 1 procs found)

My goal is to restrict jobs in selected queues to `nodes=N:ppn=M` ,
not just to MxN procs on any number of nodes. Can I do this with
`nodect` ?

Thanks.
Roman Zubatyuk.
