Sentinel RMS




HOST The first argument MUST be the Sentinel license server host name.
-cmd <PATH> Choose a specific sampling command. The default is lsmon. It is important to note that some versions of Sentinel's™ lsmon utility on Windows have the behavior of requiring the enter key to be pressed at the end of its output dump. This means that when executed as a background task in Monitor, the task will never end. If the lsmon utility being interfaced with exhibits this behavior, make a copy of the vovlsmon.bat script template found in $VOVDIR/bat and place it somewhere outside of the $VOVDIR directory. Modify it to point to the lsmon.exe file being interfaced with, then configure the status command to point to this script instead of lsmon.exe directly.
-tag <TAG> Specify the TAG to identify the license server. The TAG may contain only alphanumeric characters and underscores (_). The use of upper case characters is recommended for style purposes.
-trackdisplay The display field is normally used to indicate what display was used for a checkout. There are cases where some vendors use the display field store information that is not related to the display and some cases where the display contains spaces and other special characters. Because of this, the display field in the checkout line is ignored by default. To override the default and enable tracking the display, use this option.
Note: It is strongly advised to verify that the display field is clean in the status output for the features found in the particular vendor you are tracking before using this option.
-minPeriod <TIMESPEC> Minimum sampling period.
-maxPeriod <TIMESPEC> Maximum sampling period.
-autokill <TIMESPEC> Kill parsing job after specified time.
