A simple, experimental anti-flooding system has now been implemented
for the SLD batch system. Each time a job is moved from a generic
queue to an execution queue the queuing priority of the first job
belonging to each other user in the same generic queue is
increased by 1, if the job priority was between 100 (the default for
newly submitted jobs) and 200.
The intention is to favor the jobs of those who show restraint and
submit only a limited number of jobs over those who submit many
jobs. This scheme is experimental and your feedback is most welcome.
