why do you need an extra complex?

Wouldn't it work wen you set for an eight core machine:

high.q slots=8 with slotwise subordinate set to low.q
low.q slots=8

test.q slosts=2

and you are done.

> However, we are now trying to add a subordinate queue, and suspension doesn't work correctly with our custom complex_value.  When a job is suspended we need our slots_real usage to be decremented in the same way that the builtin slots value is.  Unfortunately it isn't.  It is understandable that most custom consumables (like licenses) aren't freed when a job is suspended, so the behavior is entirely understandable as the default, but is there a way to change this behavior and be able to tell the system to decrement the slots_real usage when a job is suspended?
