| Hi,

| We have just added torque 4.1.7 and maui 3.3.1 to our CentOS 6.4
| cluster and I am trying to figure out how to set up the queues and
| scheduler for our usage.
| We have Harpertown, Westmere and Sandy Bridge nodes. I could create a
| queue for each type but I was hoping to find a way of keeping multi
| node mpi jobs within the same type of nodes without having to
| specify a queue.

| In other words I would like to submit a job without knowing which
| type of nodes will be available but have the job sent to identical
| nodes. Is that possible?

| Thanks,
| tiago

You could just specify a generic resource for each type and then request that for each job 

nodea harpertown 
nodeb sandybridge 
nodec westmere 

and then a user could request that resource to get nodes of the same type
