FlexLM Licensing and Monitoring in LAMUM
FlexLM is the most commonly used license checkout control daemon for shared, concurrent-use, or network-based applications in industry. Sharing licenses is a lot easier to administrate and cheaper than purchasing a multitude of node-locked or user-locked licenses. Shared licenses are typically LAN (Local Area Network) or WAN (Wide Area Network). WAN licenses are usually more expensive but cover a wider number of users than LAN licenses. WAN can be US, a specific country, or Global. LAN is typically a “site” and is less expensive than WAN but more expensive than node-locked. FlexLM comes from a company called Flexera.
