[GE users] Difference between qmod y load thresholds for parrallel job?

this looks like the suspend of the queue will suspend all tasks running 
there, regardlessly whether these are real jobs or just qrsh tasks. The 
suspend/threshold instead will suspend only (?) the jobs running on this 
machine. So freeing up the machine for the qrsh tasks running there.

But I'm not sure, whether a partitial suspend of a MPICH2 job, which you 
are looking for, would be good at all: if SGE would stop just some qrsh 
tasks on some machines, and on other machines the other tasks of the 
same job would continue and wait for a reply of the suspended nodes. Not 
really advantageous IMO.
