What is the Altium License Manager? #

As one of the premier providers of EDA software for designing printed circuit boards (PCBs), Altium have their own proprietary license manager for on-premise sites. It is a two-tier licensing system, consisting of a license for the server, which controls a pool of user licenses. When the maximum number of concurrent users are reached, users will be denied until a license is freed up.

OpenLM provides the following functionality for monitoring Altium Licenses:-

  • Denials Reporting Yes
  • Report resolution By Minute
  • Borrowed License reporting No
  • Expiration Date reporting Yes
  • Multiple Server Redundancy Support One backup
  • Token License Support No


Altium is only one of over 70 license managers that OpenLM can manage. Check the list.
