[torqueusers] Scalability of Torque

I got into a discussion this morning with a friend who mentioned that
SGE scales to over 3900 nodes (the one at TACC - Texas Advanced
Computing Center), and those are real nodes with one SGE's execd on
each node. Platform LSF scales to clusters with similar number of
nodes as well.

I am wondering how many nodes the largest known Torque cluster has? I
know that the #1 on the top500 is running torque, but in terms of the
number of nodes, which one is the biggest?
