Top 10 Issues Facing License Managers
An organization’s software asset management (SAM) team wears many hats. Team members are responsible for setting up and maintaining license servers, installing licenses, ensuring compliance, assisting users, monitoring license availability, and generating usage reports. At many companies they also perform requirements analysis, remix software pools, manage contracts, and negotiate new contracts with vendors.
This paper explores the top 10 issues license administrators face and how each can be tackled using Altair Monitor™.
The Importance of Software License Server Monitoring
In electronic design automation (EDA) and other areas of computer-aided design (CAD) that utilize expensive software tools, centralization of license servers has become the norm. High software asset utilization is achieved by sharing a common pool of licenses with a large group of engineers, regardless of their locations. While this model provides many advantages over maintaining license servers at multiple locations, it also has risks.
License availability becomes even more important once all your software licenses serving multiple sites are centralized. A license server failure of any kind has the potential to impact the entire company, as license servers provide licenses to mission-critical applications. Downtime may cost millions in schedule slippage. Tools that monitor the server, CPU load, file system, license daemons, and individual license features become essential.
Altair Monitor™ is a a robust, enterprise-grade license monitoring solution that delivers a complete set of monitoring functions.

Kandou is a rapidly growing leader in fast, energy-efficient wired connectivity. Its disruptive technologies include chip products and IP solutions designed to accelerate the evolution of electronics and enable increasingly small, energy efficient, cost-effective devices.
Faced with rapid growth, the team at Kandou needed to manage workloads and licensing for their expensive EDA tools. We set Kandou’s team up with Altair Accelerator™ for job scheduling and Altair Monitor™ for real-time license monitoring and management.
Six Smarter Scheduling Techniques for Optimizing EDA Productivity
Semiconductor firms rely on software tools for all phases of the chip design process, from system-level design to logic simulation and physical layout. Given the enormous investment in tools, design talent, and infrastructure, even minor improvements in server farm efficiency can significantly impact the bottom line. As a result, verification engineers and IT managers are constantly looking for new sources of competitive advantage.
Workload management plays a crucial role in helping design teams share limited resources, boost simulation throughput, and maximize productivity. In this paper, we discuss six valuable techniques to help improve design center productivity.
