How many socket-based license files can a PBS Professional Server support?

Recommended Posts

One. If you procure an additional cluster that will use a socket-based license, you will need to make a decision - more on that below. However, the PBS Server can manage both socket-based licenses and server-based licenses at the same time. 


Your choices. Keep the clusters separate or combine them into one larger cluster.

  • Keeping the clusters separate will result in each cluster having its own socket-based license and operate independently of the other. 
  • Combining the clusters together to have one PBS server and scheduler manage all clusters will require you to make a special request to Altair to combine the socket-based licenses. Please contact your PBS Works account manager or pbssales@altair.com; include your name, site ID, and details about the two licenses you wish to combine.
