there are several Howtos: http://gridengine.sunsource.net/howto/ 
howto.html or the manual http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-0698  
page 58.

It's often used to have immediate access to slots for high priority  
jobs and suspend the normal ones in the meantime - but it will  
suspend the complete subordinated queue on the host where the high  
priority job is scheduled to. With the nowadays common multi core  
CPUs it's not advantageous to suspend too many low priority jobs, but  
a slotwise suspend should be in one of the next SGE releases.

As a suspend will still not release any used resources by the low  
priority jobs, you have to plan accordingly, whether it's suitable  
for your applications.

Are more sophisticated setup also includes to checkpoint the jobs in  
the low priority queue and migrate them to other machines and/or  
continue to execute them at a later point in time by a proper  
definition of a checkpointing interface.
