But when you specify two there, this means to take two without respect to any 
load threshold to reduce the number of selected CPUs - take two or use an other 
host. Maybe you can define more than one PE: one with $round_robin, and an 
other with 2.

But for any configuration, I think it would really be beneficial to advice the 
users to submit jobs only with SGE (or prohibit any interactive work on the 
machines besides using qrsh at all).

BTW: What type of jobs are you running? I found shared memory operations on one 
machine to be slower than using a network software Linda/MPI (also on one 
machine only) under Linux.
