How is PBS Professional Licensed?

Recommended Posts

PBS Professional uses two kinds of licenses: socket-based licenses and server-based licenses. 

  • Socket-based licenses can be used for PBS Professional only, and the license tokens are "locked" to the host (physical computer or compute node). In the event of the host being decommissioned or upgraded, the socket-based license is nontransferable to another host.
  • Server-based licenses can be used for all Altair products, and license tokens can “float" among the hosts (physical computers or compute nodes) within the site. In the event of the host being decommissioned or upgraded, the server-based license is eligible to license the new host.
