one additional thing is, that all are scheduled in the same time I assume. To change under these circumstances the flooding of one node, you can add:

$ qconf -ssconf
job_load_adjustments              np_load_avg=1
load_adjustment_decay_time        0:7:30

or alike, which will put some artificial load on the machine (from the view of the scheduler only) and move to the next node during job dispatching earlier.

Currently, I don't see jobs being evenly disbursted among a specific cluster. ie cluster A has 10 identical computers and if I submit 10 jobs, I would expect each computer to get assigned 1 job. I actually get about 6 or 7 on one machine and the other will go to other machines. Can anyone help me to understand what I need to do or where I need to look?
