[gridengine users] load scaling

I tried to understand load scaling. But it is still unclear for me.

Let's assume two hosts.

hostA very fast machine
hostB regular speed machine

Even though np_load_avg of hostA is much higher than hostB,
a job still runs faster on hostA. But in this case gridengine usually
submits the job to hostB because its np_load_avg is lower.

I want to tune this environment by changing load scaling.
But I don't know how.

Thank you.
