Yup, it is - but it's controlled by the scheduler not
by the queuing system.  So you just need to use Maui
as your scheduler.

In Moab we use:

USERCFG[DEFAULT]        MAXPROC=512
USERCFG[DEFAULT]        MAXJOB=350
USERCFG[DEFAULT]        MAXIJOB=5

to limit users to a maximum of 512 cores over 350 jobs
and they can only have 5 jobs waiting to run at any point
(the others are marked as blocked until one of the waiting
ones starts).

How's that ?

cheers,
Chris
