Hi Team,

we have an application whose licenses is limited .it scales upto 4
nodes(~80 cores).
so if 4 nodes are full, in 5th node job used to get fail.
we want to put a restriction so that the application can't go for the
execution beyond the 4 nodes and fail it should be in queue state.
i do not want to keep a separate partition to achieve this config.is there
a way to achieve this scenario using some dynamic resource which can call
the license variable on the fly and if it is reached it should keep the job
in queue.
