As I said in the email I just wrote, I'm willing to be convinced of the 
value of adding queues to the job submission side of things.  I am, 
however, fundamentally opposed to adding queues to the monitoring side. 
  The various concepts of queues are too different for that to make any 
sense.  There is absolutely no way we will be able to model both LSF and 
SGE queues in a way that is abstract enough to be consistent and still 
specific enough to be meaningful and accurate.  We'll talk on the next 
call. :)

Can you specify minSlots / maxSlots without configuring a queueName to use ? And if yes, don't we need an according maxSlotsAllowed on DRM system level then  ?
