[GE users] distinguishing between batch & interactive jobs for quota reasons

Hi folks,

I think I'm brain dead from too much travel currently. Has anyone had  
to make a distinction between batch and interactive jobs for the  
purpose of setting limits or quotas?

I've got a case where we are using qlogin and parallel environmenta to  
block off a number of CPUs/jobslots that are then taken up by an X11  
application launched within the qlogin session. We'd like to limit the  
total number of slots used by qlogin users without affecting batch  
jobs if possible.

I don't think RQS syntax can support job type language, correct? If so  
I may have to make dedicate cluster queues for batch and interactive  
job types so I can apply quotas differently across them.
