Hi Delphine

You seem to have answered your own question,
the syntax that works is the second one, with 'nodes' and 'ppn'.
It works for us here too.
My recollection is that the first syntax, which already appeared
in questions to this mailing list, is from another
job scheduler, not from Torque.

I hope this helps,
Gus Correa
