2 Your partner in Software Asset Management Agenda Presentation – LT-Live : License Tracker’s new license server monitoring tool – LT-Live demo Q & A

3 Your partner in Software Asset Management License Tracker Toolset : Best Tool for Historical Analysis the License Tracker toolset provides the best solution for historical software usage analysis – the most data sources – widest array of charts & reports – powerful automation capabilities – flexible correlation to user details – responsive customer support – open and responsive to customer feature requests – high value-to-cost ratio

4 Your partner in Software Asset Management … but although providing key information in support of most critical software asset management decisions the License Tracker toolset does not answer the key questions: – who has a license NOW? – what is the state of health of my license servers?

5 Your partner in Software Asset Management Introducing LT-Live License Tracker’s new license server monitoring tool monitors Flex and Reprise license servers – built on top of lmstat and rlmstat fundamental philosophy controlled (r)lmstats remove inefficiencies: – reduced frequency (1 agent replaces 100s or 1000s of users) – network delays (long distance TCP inefficiencies)

6 Your partner in Software Asset Management LT-Live Overview LT-Live Agents – one per license server – perform local lmstats – listen for requests from Data Collectors and sends compressed data LT-Live Collector – gather lmstat and server status data LT-Live Query Engine – web and command line interface to collected data LT-Live Config – creates control files agents -> which daemons to monitor collectors -> which agents to talk to

7 Your partner in Software Asset Management LT-Live Config standalone Java GUI application that creates configuration files LT-Live Agent controls – which daemons to query – how often to query LT-Live Web controls – which agents to query – how often to query – thresholds for warning and alert status levels license usage license server resources (memory, disk, ports, CPU)

8 Your partner in Software Asset Management LT-Live Agent standalone Java console application deployed on each license server separate thread for monitoring each daemon separate thread for communication with each LT-Live Web system collects data locally and sends compressed information back to LT-Live Web – license usage details from lmstat – server resource details through system calls

9 Your partner in Software Asset Management LT-Live Collector Tomcat web server resident Java application separate thread to communicate with each LT-Live Agent collects usage and status data into in- memory database (non persistent) correlates with user details (contact info and business groupings from User Model or LDAP) and Feature Model files processes requests from the Query Engine

10 Your partner in Software Asset Management LT-Live Query Engine JSP and Javascript based web interface – user view current sessions license availability – administrator view user view, plus server status command line interface – tentatively called LT-Live Stat – LSF and GridEngine support
