Our SGE controlled cluster has 4 groups of 32 nodes that each belong to the 
same communication class, that is, they all connect to the same linecard on a 
Myrinet switch and have the same latency and less chances of communication 
patterns resulting in a hotspot.

We currently have one large queue for all 128 nodes but we'd like to have a 
way for SGE to try and first assign queue instances in the same 32-node group 
to a job before straddling node groups.

That is if we have the following list of jobs


it would result in a split of this form
A       B       C       D
32-n    12-n    32/60-n 28/60-n
	20-n            4-n
instead (for example) of
A       B       C       D
32-n    12-n	4/20-n  --
	4-n     28/60-n 32/60-n

Anyone has an idea of how we could get SGE to provide us with such a
