Load values is a means to make the scheduler aware of information
about utilization/availability of resources that are not (entirely)
under control of Grid Engine. There are host based and global load

Usage scaling is a means to scale job related resource usage
information. It can become necessary if share tree based scheduling
is used.

Information about parameters usually can be found in man page section 5.
Yet for an introduction of the concepts the Admin guide is better.
