[GE users] Increasing slots past the number of CPUs?

    How can I increase the number of available slots to run jobs higher 
than the number of CPUs we have on the system?  We've found in the past 
that by increasing the # jobs to maybe 10% more than the # of CPUs we 
get the fastest full-job execution, but I'm having a problem finding 
where to set this parameter (in the "Parallel Environment Configuration" 
I see the slots parameter is set to 999, but only 16 jobs (we have 16 
cpus) execute at the same time, so clearly there's another parameter 
hiding that needs to  be set).  Thanks!
