With qstat -F I always see gc:, never gl:.

With qhost -F I see some global consumables reported as gc: and some 
as gl:. I have read the manual:

  'l' - a load value reported for the resource,
  'c' - availability derived from the consumable resources facility

However, I cannot figure out why one resource is reported as 'l' and 
the other as 'c'. All are defined as  global consumable resources in 
the same way. And all are reported by the load sensor. I am using SGE

OK, clear.

That then brings me to an additional (final) question: is it possible 
to see the available resources, according to just the current resource 
requests? So not adjusted by the load reports. Currently, I only can 
see if requests have been made which do not actually use the requested 
resource (a floating license feature in my case). I would also be able 
to see the opposite: using a license feature without the proper 
request for it.
