Checkouts Page

The Current Checkouts page shows all checkouts for all tags and features at the time the page was loaded. The checkouts are sorted by their age in descending order by default. This order helps to identify problematic checkouts that may require attention.

Simple View

Each row in the table shows one license checkout.



Figure 1. Simple View
The following information is displayed:
Tag
The tag representing the license server.
Feature
The license feature name. If the feature name begins with "T:", the feature is a subfeature, which is activated when certain token-based features are checked out. Note that subfeatures are supported on an inclusive basis only. See the Features Page for details.
User
The user holding the checkout. If the user begins with "r:", a license reservation is in effect for the user or group indicated.
LDAP
If the LDAP interface has been configured by the Monitor administrator, the folder icon can be clicked to obtain user pre-configured attributes from LDAP such as phone number, department, or location.
Email
The email icon is a mailto link that can be used to send an email to all users of the feature using the client machine's configured email client. The client must be capable of handling mailto links.
Host
The host on which the job holding the feature is running.
Project
The project assignment for the current checkout.
Tokens
The actual number of licenses.
Age
The age of the checkout. This is useful for finding features held by abandoned or neglected tool sessions. For FlexNet Publisher, the age used in this column is the age reported by lmstat. For the observed age, which is the age at which Monitor first detected the checkout, use the "Complete View".
Graphs
Contains shortcut icons for generating plots and heatmaps.
Remove
If the user that is logged in matches that of the checkout, or the user has an administrator security principle, the trash can icon can be used to perform the removal of the checkout. Removal of checkouts can only occur once the age of the checkout is at least two minutes.

Complete View

For more details on the checkouts, click the Complete View link in the drop-down page menu. This will enable the following columns in the table.


Figure 2. Checkouts Complete View
Capacity
The capacity of the feature that is checked out. If the capacity shown includes a number inside of parentheses, the checkout is one that utilizes multiple tokens and the enclosed number represents the calculated capacity based upon the number of tokens checked out. For example, if a feature has 100 tokens available and the checkout is using 10 tokens, the calculated capacity would also be 10 (100/10=10).
Display
Shows either the value of the display field from the license server status command.
Handle
The license manager handle for the checkout.
Version
The version reported by the tool that has been checked out.
PID
The PID of the process which has that token checked out. This is currenly only supported for Cadence and Synopsis.
PS
A link to get process statistics for the host where the checkout is held. This functionality requires the network monitoring capability of Monitor to be configured for the host for which the license checkout exists.
Reported
The time which has passed since the first checkout was reported by lmstat.
Observed Age
The age at which Monitor first detected the checkout. This is helpful in cases where FlexNet Publisher's lmstat utility reports false checkout times. This is the age that is stored in the Monitor database and used for historical reporting.
Linger
This indicates the time that the checkout will be checked in unless the tool renews it.
HostIdle
Some users want to use the information about keyboard and mouse activity on a host to determine the status of the license handles checked-out on that host. Specifically, if the keyboard and mouse are idle, then the handles are also to be considered idle, and they can possibly be removed.
In Monitor, this capability is enabled for Windows. For other hosts, such as Linux compute servers, the notion of "idle keyboard" is not meaningful.
Graphs
Links to graphical representations of the data.
