View NX Licenses- Can I view all License usage from one place?

Experimenter

We have 48 Unigraphics licenses in our office. And the licenses are distributed in 6 servers. If we have to check the license usage, we are running LM Tools in each server. Is there any way to check the uasage of all the 48 licenses from one place?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

in your nx-installation-folder you can find the lmutil.exe. You can start it in a command promt on your clinet and send the output to file. In my example the server name ist cad3.

 

c:\plm\nx100\UGFLEXLM\lmutil.exe lmstat -f -c 28000@cad3 > c:\temp\cad3-lm.log

 

You can do this for each of your servers.

 

If you want to find all the used licenses you can use the command

 

findstr "Users of" c:\temp\cad3-lm.log | findstr /V /C:"Total of 0 licenses in use" | sort >> c:\temp\lmsort.log

 

Hope this will help,

Wolfgang

There are also external apps you can try.

Flexera has Flexnet manager (very $$$)

We use another product (I cant find info on them right now)

I'm sure there are others.

I believe someone has a script based usage reporting posted somewhere here in the forums (could be in a legacy forum)

Thanks Wolfgang!

 

But we need an application which is both user friendly and time efficient. This is because we often exchange license between PCs.

So I was hoping if there was anything out there that could check all the servers at once.

Thanks Ken!

Flexnet manager wouldnt be an option for us, due to the cost.

I'll try to find other products and the script you've mentioned.

Siemens document  001-1931728 provides you with some information about

license managers.

There is also a free one, PHP License Watcher, which is no longer mantained

though, we have installed it and IMHO is not worth the effort.
