Reduce the Sampling Period for All License Monitors

Reducing the sampling rate can significantly increase the load on your Monitor instance. We do not recommend setting the refresh rate below 10 seconds, without close monitoring of the system response following the configuration change. This is especially true on installations with many license servers being monitored. If you still need faster sampling rate, more parsing resources may need to be configured. Please contact Altair support.

To reduce the sampling period for all license monitors at once, perform the following steps using the Command Line Interface:

  1. For Linux Installations, enter:
    vovproject enable licmon
    cd `vovserverdir -p vovlmd`
  2. For Windows installations, enter:
    vovproject enable licmon
    vovserverdir -p vovlmd
    cd /path/shown/above
  3. Edit the file in this directory called config.tcl. Look for the refresh rate line:
    Set VOVLM(refresh) 30
  4. Change it to the desired sampling rate.
    Monitor will automatically pick up the change on its next cycle.
