Hello All,
If I have a queue with only four nodes each with 2 slots and I submit 4 jobs, I would like to run two jobs per node using in total two nodes and having the others two free to take additional jobs but what I have seen this occurs with a low frequency.  Usually, what I have is three nodes running 2, 1, 1 jobs or even all four nodes running one job each.  How can I instruct the SGE scheduler to use all available slots in a specific compute node before to go to the next one?  Any comment will be really appreciated.
