Assuming that the license is a "scarce" resource, will you be willing to
preempt the job that does not use the license in order to make room for the
theory the maya job is free to run on another cpu in the queue because
licenses are available, however it does not run. This is the problem we
are running into now, along with more complex examples with multiple
licensed software packages interacting.
What kind of policies would you like to employ when allocating these
licences? Do all jobs ask for the same "mix"?
I need to have a dynamic expression in which I can tick off licenses use
independently of the cpu I'm running on. Are dynamic expressions like
this even possible?
