Hi Don,

the number of cpus is resolved with sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN), so this 
can't be changed easily (or you change it inside the SGE source).

>From a user point of view: depending on the intended result, you could use the 
load_scaling in the setup of the execution host and multiply it by 2:

load_scaling               load_avg=2,np_load_avg=2

This is of course the other way round, instead of down-sizing the real HT-CPU
