There are two common methods to monitor licenses with GO-Global.

1. The first method is accomplished via a license log file. You would change the FLEXLM_LOGFILE variable in the $GOGLOBAL_ROOT/etc/goglobalux script from:


Then restart the goglobalux script to enable the new log file and review the output.

Sample output is provided below:

# cat /tmp/license.log
10:54:46 (lmgrd) -----------------------------------------------
10:54:46 (lmgrd)
10:54:46 (lmgrd)
10:54:46 (lmgrd) FLEXlm (v9.2 ) started on server (Sun) (5/19/2005)

10:54:46 (lmgrd) License file(s): /usr/local/graphon/etc/license.dat

10:54:46 (lmgrd) Started graphon (internet tcp_port 32953 pid 1118)
10:54:46 (graphon) FLEXlm version 9.2
10:54:46 (graphon) Server started on ux for: UX
10:54:46 (graphon) UX_encryption
10:54:50 (graphon) OUT: "UX_encryption" root@server
10:54:50 (graphon) IN: "UX_encryption" root@server
10:55:15 (graphon) OUT: "UX" demo@xx.xxx.xx.xxx
10:55:54 (graphon) IN: "UX" demo@xx.xxx.xx.xxx
15:17:13 (graphon) OUT: "UX" demo@xx.xxx.xx.xxx
15:30:32 (graphon) OUT: "UX" joeuser@xx.xxx.xx.xxx
15:33:53 (graphon) IN: "UX" joeuser@xx.xxx.xx.xxx
15:34:06 (graphon) OUT: "UX" joeuser@xx.xxx.xx.xxx

The second method involves a tool called lmstat which can be found in the $GOGLOBAL_ROOT/bin/ directory. This will report status, availability and active usage of licenses. In the example below, lmstat reports that the license server status is UP and the licence file has two Feature sets in the INCREMENT lines;
UX (for normal usage) and UX_encryption (to enable high encryption). Only 2 out of a 100 licenses are in use at the time and neither is using high encryption (SSL).

# /usr/local/graphon/bin/lmstat -a
