Multiprocessor systems

On multiprocessor systems, CPU run queue lengths (r15s, r1m, r15m) are compared to the effective run queue lengths as displayed by the lsload -E command.

CPU run queue lengths should be configured as the load limit for a single processor. Sites with a variety of uniprocessor and multiprocessor machines can use a standard value for r15s, r1m and r15m in the configuration files, and the multiprocessor machines will automatically run more jobs.

Note that the normalized run queue length displayed by lsload -N is scaled by the number of processors.
