Try this:

In my case, I'd like the default matching algorithm to go 'hosts first'
rather than 'slots first' as it seems to do now.

The rationale is that 8 jobs running on 8 hosts each get all of host's
ram and i/o. Whereas 8 jobs running on 8 cores on the same host get
contention. Obviously, if your other 7 hosts have cpus from last century
or if your 8 jobs are pure cpu-bound & all they ever need fits
completely in the registers, you'd use the 'slots first' default.
