Q100647: Viewing license checkouts in the RLM webserver



This article explains how to access the RLM webserver and view how many licenses are checked out from the server at a given time.

How to access the RLM webserver

The RLM server software included in the Foundry Licensing Utility (FLU) contains an embedded webserver which can be used to manage the server. By default this service will start on port 4102. 

You can view your RLM Webserver directly from a web browser on the server machine, or from a machine on the same network as your license server by going to "http://ServerName:4102" in a web browser (where ServerName is the hostname of your license server). 

The RLM webserver can be used to check if licenses are available or in use, stop and restart the server, and even edit the Options File to control which users have access to your licenses.


Checking the Server status

You can check that the server is running and get an overview of the current status of your server by clicking on the "Status" button on the left hand side.



How to check if licenses are free or in use

From the status page, click on the "foundry" button beneath the Server Status heading.  



The webserver will then list the licenses currently being floated by the server machine and show which versions are available, the total number of licenses being floated and how many are currently in use.


All of our RLM licenses are used on a one-per-host-machine basis. This means, for example, you can open multiple NUKE scripts on a workstation and only use a single nuke_i license. You can then check who is using the licenses by clicking on the "usage" button for a given license in the table.



Please note that the License Usage page actually lists all of the processes that are using a license, so it can appear that one user/host has more than one license checked out.To view the total number of licenses in use, return to the previous License pool status page.
