Altair MonitorTM Capabilities
License ManagementAltair Monitor tracks license usage for over 16 license manager applications, including FLEXlm™, RLM™ and LUM™ while providing the capability to “wrap” and monitor in-house software, enabling a consistent interface across the entire licensing environment.
Monitor’s real-time reports enable users to monitor usage by feature. Users can view their license checkout status, and management can identify average and peak utilization of licenses. Having an accurate assessment of license usage over time allows organizations to optimize their software licenses and track expiration information.
Operational EfficiencyAltair Monitor gathers and maintains current and historical data via a highly scalable, high-performance database. A heat map report provides hourly reporting on license activity over a 24/7 work week to identify peak usage and resource congestion times.
Organizational leaders can filter the data for in-depth analysis and leverage it to set their operational policies and priorities. Using Monitor’s daily usage reports, organizations can make real-time decisions on license allocation.
Email alerts can be configured to notify user community of their critical license needs and upcoming license server maintenance. Monitor can be easily integrate with LDAP to lookup user information, such as phone number, department, or manager.
A historical perspective of a feature’s usage over time provides the ability to accurately forecast software license needs for upcoming projects and drive license renewal decisions. Usage data can be mapped to existing LDAP user information for department chargebacks.
