License overage percent?

Hello All,

I have LMS 3.1 with a 300 device license.  I currently operate below this license limit but this Friday I will inherit more equipment which will bring me to slightly higher than my license limit (less than 10% over).  Will I be able to manage all of my devices in CiscoWorks after I add the new ones in?  I believe I read once that there is an allowance to go over the license amount but I forget the percentage.

If someone could answer me soon, that'd be great!  I need to know for sure if it will work as is or if I have to quickly buy more licenses.

You have a 10% grace buffer.  Device number 331 will not be managed.

Hi Joe,

That's what I thought.  I just didn't remember the number.  I appreciate the help!

Is there any way to control, or any logic to the determination of, which devices fall into the 110% bucket? In my case, I have 1.5k licenses in PROD and 300 for DEV (due to cost consideration). I restore the PROD dbbackup to DEV for testing purposes. It'd be nice to dictate which devices get managed, to get a full representation of hardware types.
