4. Draft 5 - MonitoringSession interface (see drmaa.org for draft document)

   - machinePhyMemory / machineVirtMemory: need for differentiation 
     between configured versus available memory (the term "available"

     (so we don't support that)

     in mind but make it not yet to an attribute (for sure only optional 
     because the lack of support by DRMs)

     not in use.
