Doing licenses "right" is a challenge. It also depends on your workload and
how you are submitting jobs to the pool. How many jobs that request the
license do you typically have and how many submission points (SchedDs) are

So I sent this out before, but didn't get any takers. It's really
important for us and seems like a solved problem so if you know and answer
or have an idea don't be afraid to speak up.
I have 10 machines, each with 2 cpus that can run our licensed software
for which we currently have 2 licenses. The two licenses are limited by
machine, not by process, so if one license is consumed by one machine it
can run the software also on the second cpu without consuming another
license. In this way two machines can run 4 processes with two licenses.
Any ideas on a classAd expression that would cover software licensing in
this way, so that we can run on any of the machines that are capable of
running the software. Even a general way to count licenses per process
would be helpful.
