Hi William,

Do you mean: run one load sensor on one node, and this load sensor
will collect the information of all of the nodes, and report to the

Since load sensor reports information like:"node0xx:yy=zz", I guess if
it returns "node0x1:yy=zz1; node0x2:yy=zz2..." then it should be
recognized correctly by qmaster.
