Thanks, but I don't quite get it.

I can set h_vmem manually for each machine, thereby killing any jobs 
that run on those machines that consume more than that amount of memory 

I can also make h_vmem consumable, so that users can request the amount 
of memory they need with "-l h_vmem=2G" and the jobs will only get run 
on machines that have h_vmem set above that, right?

But I can't have h_vmem set automatically for each machine, say equal to 
  mem_total?  Could I do it in a load sensor?
