I do that once-for-all (or until memory gets changed).

If you want it done somehow automatically, and you allow the compute nodes to
be admin hosts, you can configure the host values with an init script of some
sort, maybe as part of the execd one.  That's perhaps more appropriate
than a load sensor in this case
