[GE users] Consumable variable : one license per job

Hi all,


  I am new on SGE and try to implement simple run of parallel jobs. 


  I have some number of nodes with defined slots=1 per node.

  The application requires to be limited on two consumable
variables(licenses) : one parallel license(LIS1) per node and one
license(LIS2) per job.


  So if I fire a job with 10 parallel streams it should use 10 LIS1s and
one LIS2.


  I tried to run qsub like this

    qsub -N TEST -q all.q -pe mpich 10 -l LIS2=1,LIS1=10 /home/some.job


  It looks logical for me BUT in reality it consumes 10 LIS2 and 100
LIS1!! It's simply multiply on number of nodes given in mpich parameter 


  Can you comment what's done wrong and how to fix that?


Thank you in advance
