I think the default behavior is to dispatch jobs to different nodes.
Was the setting of your cluster changed on purpose so that jobs fill
up a node first before going to the next node??


There is the "queue_sort_method" parameter that controls whether jobs
are dispatched to different hosts (load) or fill up slots (seqno) --

Multiple jobs are being submitted to same node, while the other nodes are idling, instead it would be nice to submit one job to each available free node and submit another if none available.
