How can I verify that hosts are licensed with the socket-based license?

Recommended Posts

After you have configured PBS Professional to use the socket-based license via qmgr, you should see if the nodes associated to the socket-based license have a license=l attribute.



# pbsnodes -a | grep -e "^[[:alnum:]]" -e license
o184i225
     license = l
o184i226
     license = l
o184i227
     license = l
o184i228
     license = l
[…]


 

You can also check to see how many socket-based licenses are available (Avail_Sockets) and unused (Unused_Sockets):

 



# qstat -Bf | grep -e license -e Socket
    pbs_license_info = /var/spool/PBS/server_priv/altair_lic.dat
    pbs_license_min = 1
    pbs_license_max = 2147483647
    pbs_license_linger_time = 31536000
    license_count = Avail_Global:0 Avail_Local:0 Used:0 High_Use:0 Avail_Sockets:64 Unused_Sockets:2


 

For more details on different types of socket-based license configurations, please refer to the PBS Professional Installation & Upgrade Guide.

  • If you are using socket-based licenses for all hosts, follow the steps in section “All Hosts Use Socket Licenses.”
  • If you are using socket-based licenses for some but not all hosts, follow the steps in section “Some Hosts Use Socket Licenses.”
