I just did that, but it seems that the job does not take the value from
that stack.
My licence here is called tokens and it is globally set to 12, 999 for
the node-locked server.
3 jobs are running, default value for tokens is 1 token per job and
qstat -F tokens tells me that 9 tokens are left.

qlicserver notices that one external job is consuming a licence and
wants to reduce the complex "tokens" to 8.
However the three internal jobs only consume two licences and 9
available tokens would be correct.

To make things even more complicated, we also have a second type of
licence which under special circumstances is taken. Thus I would like
qlicserver to set the number of available tokens directly to the number
extracted from lmstat.
Since SGE seems to do the calculations of available tokens itself, the
number of tokens would have to be adjusted to "tokens"=tokens taken by
SGE + tokens available by lmstat.

Best regards,
