I have a couple of clients that I fire up when there are jobs smaller than session 450, but I cannot get them to pull more work, even though 450 and the postprocessing test session only require 256. Is there anything I can do to trigger the scheduler to send down work for them?

I\'m afraid the scheduler is both stupid and blind. At the moment there\'s nothing you can do to get work for the smaller machines except wait untill 557 is out of the way (which should be a few hours from now).

(In fact units with lesser requirements than 700MB are being sent out, but they are \"eaten\" faster than the 700MB units, causing the scheduler to end up having only 700MB units in its queue)
