Every condor_schedd in your pool maintains it's own queue of
jobs.  Thus, your central manager doesn't directly see the queue
on machine 2.

Some ways to get the information:

"condor_status -schedd" will report summaries of all of the
schedd queues.

"condor_q -global" will pull results from every schedd queue in
your pool (this can be slow in a big pool).

"condor_q -name $HOSTNAME_YOU_ARE_INTERESTED_IN" will pull
results from a single queue.

It's a bit complicated, in short Condor limits how frequently it
will attempt to match jobs.  This reduces the load on the system
for larger pools.  This defaults to 5 minutes.  

The quick option is "condor_reschedule", assuming you have
permission (and you will in the default configuration) this will
ask Condor to try and match your jobs immediately.

The permenant option is to set NEGOTIATOR_INTERVAL to a smaller
value.  For small pools setting it to 30 (it defaults to 300) is
