I tried it only once and it wasn't working to make any `qstat...` command 
inside the load sensor. Maybe it would be like a recursive loop.

You may use e.g. `uptime | awk ' { print strtonum($10) } '` and can also divide 
this by the number of processors inside. Most likely you will know the number 
of CPUs for your cluster machines, and can avoid to look every time in 
/proc/cpuinfo to get the value.
