You can give different "seq_no" for different machine in the queue configuration:

$ qconf -sq all.q
seq_no                0,[@slower=100],[node23=105]

and tell the scheduler to sort by load:

$ qconf -ssconf
queue_sort_method                 seqno

The order of lines in the `qstat` output will change accordingly.

PS: This won't work for parallel job though.
