Hi Thon Deboer ,
I am a newer in Galaxy.I installed my Galaxy with Torque2.5.0 ,and Galaxy uses 
the pbs_modoule to interface with TORQUE.But I have some question of the  
job_conf.xml :
1.)In your  job_conf.xml ,you use regularjobs,longjobs,shortjobs...to run 
different jobs ,how our Galaxy know which tool belongs to regularjobs or 
longjobs.And what is the meaning of "nativeSpecification"?
2.)Shall us use <tools>collection of <tool id="bwa_wrapper" 
destination="multicorejobs4"/>to specify bwa ?Does it mean the bwa belong to 
multicorejobs4,and run in cluster?
3.)Does every tool need us to specify which job it belong to?
 I saw http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/Jobs about this,but I am not 
sure above.Could you help me please?

Subject: [galaxy-dev] Jobs remain in queue until restart
I have noticed that from time to time, the job queue seems to be “stuck” and 
can only be unstuck by restarting galaxy.
The jobs seem to be in the queue state and the python job handler processes are 
hardly ticking over and the cluster is empty.
When I restart, the startup procedure realizes all jobs are in the a “new 
state” and it then assigns a jobhandler after which the jobs start fine….
Any ideas?
P.S I am using the june version of galaxy and I DO set limits on my users in 
job_conf.xml as so: (Maybe it is related? Before it went into dormant mode, 
this user had started lots of jobs and may have hit the limit, but I assumed 
this limit was the number of running jobs at one time, right?)
