Yup - been there, done that. On all my execution hosts I have set
"slots" to 8 since they are 8 core machines. The command "qhost -F
slots" does indeed tell me the number of currently available slots on
each host - 8 for an empty node, zero for a fully occupied node, or
something in between as the case may be. This actually relates to
another thread regarding preventing over-subscription when an execution
host serves multiple cluster queues.
So have you actually observed job packing to work on your cluster(s)?
