Altair Monitor-Basic Setup

Altair Accelerator uses a two-layer interface to FlexNet Publisher. There is a daemon vovresourced which is started by the NC server whenever there are vtk_flexlm_monitor statements in the resources.tcl file. vovresourced gets license information from licmon via HTTP, and uses it to maintain NC's License: resources.

In the case where many NC queues or FlowTracer projects are running, it greatly reduces the load on FlexNet Publisher and improves the consistency of the license information to run Monitor or Monitor-basic. Additionally, Monitor offers a browser interface which shows licenses in use and license utilization information. Altair Accelerator recommends that you run this whenever you need to monitor FlexNet Publisher licenses, even in cases where you only have one server running Accelerator.
