Message 43421 - Posted: 26 Sep 2020, 6:56:29 UTC - in response to Message 43417.  

Using "<max_concurrent>n</max_concurrent>" within an app_config.xml limits an app to n concurrently running instances.
Example:
https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=5431&postid=42621
In addition to the example:
If you want to limit CMS you need to insert these lines:
<app>
  <name>CMS</name>
  <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
</app>


If you set your preferences to SixTrack + 1 additional app and set the additional app to <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent> it will do what you want.
If you allow more than 1 additional app you can limit each of them to 1 but there's no option to limit "all additional apps" to 1.

More about app_config.xml can be found here (chapter "Project-level configuration"):
