Thank for the help Reuti.

How can I show the existing reservation schedule?

h_rt would be difficult for me to set because I have some jobs that run for over
a month and some that last only a few minutes.   I fear I would have to set it
too high for SGE to be able to make a useful schedule.

How does one prevent multiple jobs from running on a single node if that node is
in more than one queue?

BTW, If I set maxujobs to 1 while one user has several jobs already running, will sge
suspend them?  Is there a way to disable job suspension altogether?  I never
want this to happen.
