[GE users] load sensor values and consumable complexes

Hello again,

I have some problems in the understanding of how to combine consumable 
complexes and how they can be returned be load sensors.

Lets say I have a host with a maximum temp space of 20gb. As their are 
only 15 gb available the load sensor returns just these 15 gb as the 
value of the complex "tmp_free".

Now a jobs starts which requests 5 gb of tmp_free. If tmp_free were 
consumable qstat would now return a value of 10 gb. After 5 minutes the 
job really uses 5 gb tmp space (which will be noticed by the load sensor) 
-> The amount of tmp_free is being reduced to 5 gb. But that's actually
not what I want...

Is it correct to say that you cannot let load sensors return consumable 
complex_values? Or does GE have some "artificial intelligence" to deal 
with that problem?
