What config do I use to ensure SGE spreads my distributed jobs across the fewest number of nodes, i.e., node selection starts with the node with the most available slots and then works its way down?  Right now SGE is randomly choosing loaded machines over unloaded machines for some reason (6.2u5) I have tried a scheduler conf like:

algorithm                         default
