Licenses used

If I wanted to monitor which specific licenses in our bundles, a particular user checkd out during a typical day, what would be the best way?  Is there a local log? or would I have to pick thru a server log of everyone?

 

Basically, I want to see what the typical designer uses, so we can evaluate which ones we need, and which ones we don't need.  I have the License Status tool, which helps, but that seems to only capture a moment in time.

 

Thanks!

Those seem geared more towards monitoring a server, ratherthan a user, but I will keep digging.

 

I've been using this https://charleswb.github.io/LicenseStatus/ and it just involved manual filtering, and taking snapshots thruout the day.

for what is worth, I'm also attaching a picture of the (free) tool we have for this.

You pick the specific license in a bundle and you can see the relevant usage

(I think the users issue can be addressed as well)

 

As you say you want to evaluate which licenses you need, well, this is not going

to help much as specific licenses cannot be usually bought individually

There is a log file on the license server.

I typically open a command prompt window

use "findstr" command on the username:

findstr /i username ugslmd.log

 

If you want to filter out denials, you can:

findstr /i username ugslmd.log | findstr /v DENIED

 

Change "username" & log file name as needed for your situation

the problem I have found with the log is that is never complete, due to the frequent maintenance resets of the license server deleting it.
Whenever I needed to search it for some data I have never been able to find what I wanted.
Storing the usage data in a database fixes this problem, but that requires some extra work, of course.

Have IT use a .BAT to restart the license server.

I leave it as an exercise to the reader to get the current date/time & format it for the "rename" ;-)

REN ugslmd.log ugslmd.log_date

NET START...
