[gridengine users] All queues dropped because of overload or full

Hi All,

We've just upgraded our cluster from Rocks 6.0 to Rocks 6.2.  One issue 
that has come up is that SGE is not scheduling any jobs, they sit in the 
queue in a wait state.  Checking with "qstat -j" gives the following

scheduling info:            All queues dropped because of overload or full

We have also noticed that there are no sge deamons running on any of the 
execution nodes (I don't know if that is normal or not).  We have also 
collected the information below from qconf.  Any help in resolving this 
would be greatly appreciated.
