License Log Parser

Tutorial for License Log Parsing

Log files tend to be long and full of code that is nearly impossible to decipher. OpenLM has designed a license log parser that allows for quick and easy interpretation that can be converted to a pdf format for group reports.

Advanced license management functionality using Bentley hosted license manager (SELECT)

Bentley Software licensing

Bentley licensing is based on the the SELECT Server license manager which is offered in two versions, either on-premise or a cloud version (link). Both versions provide users with a web based interface that administers control and reporting.

OpenLM and Bentley license manager

OpenLM provides complementary service to organizations that use the SELECT Server license. This service adds capabilities that are supported both with the on-premise version and the cloud version of the software.

OpenLM qualifications:

- Accurate online usage monitoring & reporting.

- Active directory synchronization and cost allocation to business units or projects.

- Active/Idle user reporting that allow to know if any of your user keep expensive licenses idle.

- Receive an alert either by e-mail or SMS, according to the roles you set yourself. For example, when a threshold in license usage is met, an alert can be sent out as a warning.

Cost Regulation

The need for OpenLM capabilities is even higher when using the cloud (hosted) setting with Bentley SELECT license manager. In this case, billing is periodically done by the hour of usage and an organization without knowing, may very well end up with much higher expenses than initially projected. In such an environment where the available license inventory is unlimited, OpenLM is a very important complementary tool that allow organization to keep license usage efficient and under control.

OpenLM: EasyAdmin Heat Map tutorial video

How to use the EasyAdmin Heat Map:

This video is to show us the OpenLM EasyAdmin Heat Map. The  first thing we need to do is go from the EasyAdmin web application, click Start> Widgets and License Usage Heat Map. What we’ll need to do is filter in information, we choose a server, a vendor, and particular feature.
