OpenLM for IBM Rational

Token licenses are a form of floating license, only that instead of having a pool of licenses they have a pool of tokens. When a feature is checked-out, a certain amount of tokens is consumed. The number of consumed tokens is specific to each feature, and is apparent in the feature/Increment line in the license file.

Changes made in TLSTOK reporting

The IBM Rational licenses are managed by the Flexera flexnet publisher license manager. As such, OpenLM Server has always been capable of monitoring IBM Rational license consumption and provide usage reports on the EasyAdmin web application.

In previous versions, OpenLM would only present the IBM Rational token feature (TLSTOK), and would not elaborate on the consumption of actual features within TLSTOK. With the latest OpenLM 3.1 update, OpenLM treats the TLSTOK feature as package, and all its token based features as part of that package.

License file case study

The license file in this case contains a number of licensed features within the TLSTOK package, and a single licensed feature (ibmida) that is exterior to that package.

SERVER <server_name> <MAC_address> 27000

VENDOR ibmratl

INCREMENT ibmida ibmratl <version> permanent <number> DUP_GROUP=UH \

        vendor_info= “…”IBM InfoSphere Data Architect Floating License key…”

INCREMENT LT_Playback_1000VU rational …

VENDOR_STRING= …  IBM:t,TLSTOK … LT_Playback_1000VU , 69 …

The IBM Rational license file makes use of several vendor names, e.g: ibmratl, telelogic and rational. OpenLM treats all these vendor types as one, unifying usage under a single vendor name: ibmratl.

OpenLM EasyAdmin Licenses window

The “Main Token feature” (TLSTOK) is displayed as a package, with a + sign on its left.
