Bug Description

Currently, the Cue API/Worker does not verify any limits on size of cluster being constructed. This makes Cue worker instances vulnerable to DOS attacks if an unrealistic cluster size is provided. The worker will attempt to build and execute a new work flow (TaskFlow) with any provided cluster size value.
