<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">We have a small cluster (running torque &amp; pbs_sched) that is only occasionally fully utilized.&nbsp; Most of the time there are not enough jobs to fill all the nodes.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">When a job is submitted it always goes to the first available node in the node list, resulting in ‘node01’ getting significantly more work than ‘node14’.&nbsp; I’m keen to spread the workload more evenly across each node.&nbsp;
 Is there a way to get torque to pick a free node at random, rather than the first free node on the list?<o:p></o:p></span></p>
