We are using Sun Grid Engine 6.1 in Linux RHEL 4 64 bit OS.
We need to restrict the number of license consumed by a single user to 5.
We had come across the sge tutorial and found that, it can be done using the resource quota (qconf -arqs) values.
Already the license feature is added in the consumable resource. Let the name be ?solver?
Now I need to limit the ?solver? value to 5, so that each user in the node can able to use up to 5 solver license and if the user submits another job then it should be in queue.
I have configured a new resource quota, by the following command.
qconf ?arqs <resource-quota-name>
description license limit
limit users * to solver=5
But even if I continue to submit 6 jobs, each consumes 1 solver; it is running without any issues.
Can anyone help on this regard?
