With two big jobs jumping in the que requiring 1G of memory or more, I noticed my lower spec computers sitting idle with the message poping up about not enough memory.

It seams a terrible waste to have the lower memory systems doing nothing, so isn\'t there a way to get the server to hand out frames from the jobs which require less memory so the net throughput is higher?

Indeed and that\'s something that is currently being worked on.
