Hi Mark,

Thank you for the response. 

But doing it this way requires the user to know which licenses to request. In the case of fluent , for example the serial licenses are way more expensive than the parallel ones, so it makes sense to first use up the parallel licenses before trying to use the serial ones in parallel mode. It would be nice to not only have the OR operator for consumables but also  be able to specify the order in which the complex requests should be checked by SGE.

The solution that Reuti suggested sometime ago: just introduce double

If you have complexes 'fluentp' (parallel) and 'fluents'
(serial), you
can also define a complex 'fluent' that is a combination of both.

If your job should *only* use parallel licenses:
    -l fluent=1,fluentp=1
For exclusive use of serial licenses:
    -l fluent=1,fluents=1
If you don't actually care which licenses are used:
    -l fluent=1.

You'll probably want to look at 'derived' types in the qlicserver
(assuming that you are using this license integration method).
I'm not sure if the current published version properly handles
user-defined limits with the derived types, but the next release should
have this fixed.
