do you mean this from the manpage of complex:

In the case of a consumable on host level, which has also a load sensor, 
the system checks for the current usage, and if the inter-­
nal  accouting  is  more  restrictive  than  the load sensor report, the 
internal value is kept; if the load sensour report is more
restrictive, that one is kept.

What do you want to achieve originally?
