As an LSF admin/user I'm very used to the concept of multiple queues of
different applications/priorities/policies/running windows/etc.

In LSF, attributes that impact scheduling decisions are often attached to queues.

In Condor, attributes that impact scheduling decisions are attached _directly_ to either jobs (job ClassAd attributes) or to resources (machine ClassAd attributes). Every individual job can have its own "policy", because in Condor every job can specify its own Requirements and Rank. Ditto for every resource (machine). So each individual job can describe itself and what sort of policy it desires, and each machine can describe itself and what policy it desires. It is a different conceptual model, and may take some getting used to if you are moving from the LSF environment, but it allows for a lot of flexibility for users & owners, with minimal intervention needed on the part of admins [or so we hope... ;) ].

So with Condor it is not typically necessary to create multiple queues to support different policies.
