The monster queue is reserved for systems testing and is not available for general use.

The overnight queue is turned on at 6:00pm nightly and off at 6:00am daily. This queue allows more nodes per job and for longer run times than during the day. Jobs still running in the overnight queue at 6:00am are killed. Other queues are not affected.
