Monitoring licenses in a Linux / Unix environment – KB4101
OpenLM provides a comprehensive management solution for license management software such as FlexLM (Flexnet), Sentinel RMS (Aspentech SLM), DSLS etc.
The OpenLM Server is the core element of the OpenLM system. It integrates the functionality of all other peripheral system components, such as the OpenLM EasyAdmin, OpenLM Agent, and OpenLM Broker. The OpenLM Server is implemented as a Windows service and can be installed on any Windows’ network machine. In order to monitor Linux / Unix license servers, the OpenLM Broker must be installed on those servers:
Installing the OpenLM Server
The Broker’s main tasks are to:
Query License usage information locally on the License Manager machine. Push this information to the OpenLM server.
Access license servers files such as FLEXLM Options files, license files and debug logs, and forward their information to the OpenLM Server
Installing the OpenLM Broker on Unix/Linux platforms
