[torqueusers] In search of a long forgotten feature...

are you looking for this?

set queue i386 required_property = 32bit

this used to be a patch that was not part of the standard distribution
and i don't think this has made it into torque (at least not under the
same name, i just checked). perhaps you can track down the patch
somewhere searching for this string.

i had this installed loooong ago (when RH 7.0-7.2 was current). but since
moving to maui as a scheduler, i get the about the same effect using
something list this:
set queue i386 resources_default.neednodes = 32bit
which is then further augmented by:
in the maui.cfg file.

hope this helps,
