We have what might be a similar set up.

h_vmem is set as consumable, and an amount of memory is set (that can be 
consumed) for each host.

This might be what you are looking for.

Note that although we have machines with 32GB RAM the maximum RAM that 
can be consumed is 31GB to give the OS some room to work. Similary on 
our 16GB and 8GB machines the memory that may be consumed is set to 15 
and 7GB respectively.

Now we want to have 2 queues, so that users can send to one queue if they want the 4 cpus and 16 GB Ram, so on a machine with such a job running, there shouldn't start any other job. If users send to another queue it should use one of the cpus and 4gb ram, it should then be possible to run 4 jobs on one machine.
