same, and you can do something like this if cores=slots

cat > /tmp/rqs << EOT
name         slotcap
description  keep slots equals procs
enabled      FALSE
limit        hosts {*} to slots=\$num_proc
qconf -Arqs /tmp/rqs

I use a resource quota to do this outside of the queue.

   name         max_slots_per_rogue
   description  NONE
   enabled      TRUE
   limit        hosts {@rogues} to slots=8

This is across queues there is a total of 8 slots available on every
host in the @rogues host group. It will not allow more than 8 total to
be used on any exec host.
