Flexera Flexnet Publisher (FlexLM) version 11.12 SLOG: Summary Log statistics – KB

The FlexLM license manager produces Debug log files, which hold status information and error messages that are useful for debugging its activity. In version 11.12 Flexera added a few changes to the Debug logs; namely a set of global information entries that relate to the lmgrd daemon and to specific vendor daemons. These are referred to as SLOG: Summary Log statistics.


SLOG for lmgrd #

SLOG entries for the lmgrd daemon are prefixed by (@lmgrd-SLOG@).

These include:

  • Start timestamp
  • Version
  • ProcessID
  • Network Info (IPv4/IPv6 interface, License manager port)
  • Command-line options
  • list of license files
  • Is the license server running as a Windows’ service.


Example from an actual debug log file: #

SLOG for vendor daemons #

Debug logs may be split and redirected according to Vendor daemons. This facilitates zooming in on vendor specific data. Vendor daemon specific SLOG entries are prefixed by (@<vendor>-SLOG@). These include:

  • Start timestamp
  • Version
  • ProcessID
  • Network info (IPv4/IPv6 interface, listening port, select timeout of vendor daemon)
  • Vendor daemon name
  • Options file used
  • Trusted storage accessed (yes/no)
  • Host name
  • Virtual/physical environment
  • (limited) Hypervisor info if virtual
  • Lmbind used (yes/no)
  • Number of restarts of the Vendor daemon since lmgrd startup
  • Number of rereads since vendor daemon was started (or restarted)
  • Last reread time
  • Reread initiation type (automatic versus lmreread).

Every 4 hours (and at vendor daemon shutdown) the following performance data entries are also logged:

  • Details of the 10 peak client transactions (including client hostname, user, transaction time, concurrent clients at time of transaction, memory usage (Windows only))
  • Peak concurrent clients served
  • High watermark memory usage (for Windows only)
  • Transaction time for the last 10 transactions.
