Hi folks:

   A customer asked us to change them to  share scheduling as a function 
of recent CPU usage.  They had been in a non-policy based mode so we 
could see which model they prefered, by department, by user, etc. 
Watching the usage patterns, it seems that a share policy based upon the 
recently accumulated CPU usage is likely to be best.  I see how to 
create the share policy with the default user.   How do I have it use 
CPU usage to make the share calculation?  How do I tie this back into 
the scheduler (e.g what do I have to set to have it use this share policy)?
