I'm working on a 120+ node cluster of Apple G5 Xserves where the 
exepcted usage mix is probably going to involve jobs with runtimes 
varying from minutes to weeks.

One of the coolest new SGE 6 features is the urgency scheduling policy 
and also the weight_waiting_time parameter which seems purpose-built to 
solve some of the job starvation issues seen in 5.3.

I'd like to start experimenting with adjusting the urgency policy and 
the weight_waiting_time parameter to boost long-pending jobs up in 

Any advice or impressions from people already doing this? What are some 
good initial values for weight_waiting_time and weight_urgency?
