For the scheduling it is already being taken into account, therefore they are not scheduled to nodes without enough resources.

But to avoid starvation of your jobs: did you make h_vmem a consumable complex, attached a certain amount to each exechost `qconf -me ...` and submit your jobs with `qsub -R y` to avoid this effect?

Note: max_reservation in `qcoonf -msconf` must be set to the job count you expect that reservations are necessary for.

Then h_vmem will be reserved and at one point your jobs will start essentially.
