Is there a FAQ, whitepaper, doc, manual or wiki that describes the 
individual parameters that can be set in the execution host 
configuration (esp in the: 'Load Scaling' & 'Usage Scaling' section 
that is offered by qmon? 

[ qmon -> Host Configuration -> Add -> Scaling -> Load Scaling & Usage 

This seems to be the same list of parameters that can be generated by 
the 'qconf -sc' command.

Some of them seem to be straightforward, at least until you run into 
others that seem to conflict (processors vs slots, for example).

A few others are explained in the 'complex' or 'queue_conf' man mages, 
but there doesn't seem to be any doc that centralizes the explanation 
of what they actually mean/imply.  What's left is to randomly assign 
values and wait for a job to explode and then try to do an autopsy on 
the remains.

Is there such a doc?  I'd be very happy to RTFM.
