Setting a queue for dashboards when maximum of concurrent historical searches has been reached


I have a dashboard with several different base searches that is transformative searches. However I get the error of maximum amount of concurrent historical searches. 

Unfortunately we can't upgrade the cpu count or change the role. I was thinking is there a way of making it so that there is a queue set for them so for example when the first 3 are finished the next 3 searches starts. Or set the order of when the searches start and finish?

Have each search contain a token that is set by the previous search.  The token could be a result or it can be defined in a <done> element.

  <query>index=_internal </query>
    <set token="start_search2"></set>
  <query>index=foo $start_search2$</query>
    <set token="start_search3"></set>


If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
