This statement allows you to override the detected default amount of resources 
for a given queue, or even at the server level itself. Say for example you 
wanted to over subscribe a set of nodes for some reason.

This is the maximum amount of the resource (nodes in this case) that will be 
accepted by the queue. So if a user requests more then 32 nodes, the job will 
either be rejected by qsub, or passed along to another queue.
