[torqueusers] Using TORQUE in a supercomputer with lots of CPU's - one node - gets job-exclusive

Hi there!

I installed TORQUE and Maui successfully in a supercomputer, with 136
processors.  So, as you can see, this is not a beowulf cluster.  TORQUE
and Maui runs fine, but after the first job is running, the node (the
computer itself) state turns to be job-exclusive, so I can't run any
more job even though there are dozens of processors free.

How to configure it (server_priv/nodes only?) to recognize other CPU's
as a different partition that jobs can be allocated to?

Is multi-mom configuration the answer?

Thank you!
