When weighing cluster usage for user's job priority, I only see options to
weigh usage by cpu, memory and io usage.

Is there any way to weigh usage by cluster time instead? The way I see it,
we allocate resources into 1 slot per cpu per node. When a user occupies a
slot, he is occupying a spot on the cluster, regardless of whether he is
using resources or sitting idle.

Therefore, I would like to weigh user priority based on how many slots a
user is occupying and for how long, regardless of if they are idle or using
lots of resources.

Is there any way to do something like this with SGE?
