[gridengine users] limit # cores used within host group, user_set?

Thanks- this is exactly what I need.

If my SGE installation has never used rqs before, How do I enable it?
I ask because I wrote a test:

qconf -srqs econ_mushovec
   name         econ_mushovec
   description  NONE
   enabled      TRUE
   limit        users {msuhovec} hosts {@econ_d8copt_24G} to slots=48

I believe this to read "limit user msuhovec (that's me) to 48 slots within hostgroup @econ_d8copt_24G"

Trying it, I am able to request and run more than 48 cores from machines within that hostgroup, so I didn't get something right.

Assuming cores == slots, use an rqs to limit slots by users and hosts.

The rqs man page is unclear and I haven't got round to foixing it.
Reuti recommended instead

Excuse the typping -- I have a broken wrist
