Ok, then I'm going to reopen this issue against the man page.  

The man entry, "the usage of reserved resources is used for the accounting entries cpu, mem and io instead of the measured usage," is
uninformative.  Does ACCT_RESERVED_USAGE have anything to do with resource reservation? (qsub -R y)  No, it does not.  Does it have anything
to do with reserved run time?  (qsub -l h_rt=hh:mm:ss)?  No, it does not, because the accounting entry made is not the *reserved* h_rt, it
is the *measured* wallclock time.  The name implies some entity is being reserved, and slots seemed the obvious thing.  But apparently I was

Perhaps the feature has a misleading name?  I understand it would be futile to suggest renaming it.  But please change the man page to
describe what it does, and perhaps even what it's good for?
