Hello all,

       I've a basic question for SGE(version 6.2u2_1) license integration with pure load-sensor approach.
The problem I'm facing here is, SGE is not at all taking the values from load sensor. Its taking the license values which are defined "qconf -mattr ..." command i.e. its taking the Total number of licenses.

Here are my settings

# qconf -se global
hostname              global
load_scaling          NONE
complex_values        fluentall=10,fluent=10,fluent-nox=10,geom-trans=10, \
                      fluent-par=20,fluent-v2f=12,acfx_solver=10, \
                      acfx_nolimit=10,acfx_parallel=10,acfx_mfr=10, \
                      acfx_multiphase=10,acfx_combustion=10,acfx_radiation=10, \
                      acfx_advanced_turbulence=10, \
                      acfx_turbulence_transition=10,acfx_bldmdlr=2, \
load_values           NONE
processors            0
user_lists            NONE
xuser_lists           NONE
projects              NONE
xprojects             NONE
usage_scaling         NONE
report_variables      cpu,mem_free,np_load_avg,virtual_free

# qconf -sconf
execd_spool_dir              /opt/gridengine/sge6_2u2_1/default/spool
mailer                       /bin/mail
xterm                        /usr/bin/X11/xterm
load_sensor                  /opt/gridengine/sge6_2u2_1/flexlm_integrate/load-sensor.sh
prolog                       none
epilog                       none
shell_start_mode             unix_behavior
login_shells                 sh,ksh,csh,tcsh

load_report_time             00:00:05
max_unheard                  00:05:00
reschedule_unknown           00:00:00
reporting_params             accounting=true reporting=true \
                             flush_time=00:00:15 joblog=true sharelog=00:00:00
finished_jobs                100
gid_range                    20000-20100

Why SGE is not able get the values from loadsensor.sh script. (The output of the script shows the remaining licenses)

The perl script shows values as follows:

# perl /opt/gridengine/sge6_2u2_1/flexlm_integrate/loadsense_helper.pl<http://loadsense_helper.pl>

But following command shows it as 15 only..

# qstat -F acfd_par_proc
queuename                      qtype resv/used/tot. load_avg arch          states

all.q at sun01                 BIP   0/0/16         7.00     lx24-amd64
all.q at sun02                 BIP   0/0/16         2.13     lx24-amd64

In further, I've decided to use Oleson's method of integration. But here I want to know whether this is a bug with SGE or I've mis-configured something.
