license pool violations - unallocated stack = headroom

Path Finder

if you have a stack with say 200gb and you allocate

PoolA - 80GB
PoolB - 80GB

If PoolB went over the limit by 20GB would it automatically juts use the extra GB available and not cause a Real license violation?

OR if you allocated all of the stack:
PoolA - 100GB
PoolB - 100GB

and Pool A only used 50GB and PoolB wused 120GB Would this also cause a violation or would it understanmd that in total you hadnt caused a violation..

I.e. are violations at a Stack level or Pool level?

Obviously the goal here is to allocate pools some license but leave some shared head room to avoid lic violations....

Thanks

Imagine the pools are independent of each other, as far as I am aware they will not share usage between them as you may have provisioned usage to one pool to account for spikes, this wouldn't be very stable if the system then shared the un-used pool license allowance.

Best practise is to organise a decent proof of concept with your sales rep (they can use a suitably large trial license) so you can be sure on how much you want to allocate and where.

Draineh is correct, pools are independent of each other and a violation on a pool will incur a license violation.
