i have been looking for a software that can tell me how much/ how many of our Solidworks licenses we are using. is there anything like that out there?
Your VAR can give you this information quite easily.
ive brought it up before and didn't have any luck. ill reach out to them again.
Jon, depending what type of information you're looking to acquire have you checked into the tools available on the "Admin" side of things?
This can be found within the Start Menu under "SOLIDWORKS Tools"
i havent, is there somthing in there?
There is quite a bit in there, I just blanked mine out as it has all the users info which I do not want posted here.
ah yes i have used that in the past. but i am looking for something that can give me say a month of past usage, how many licenses we are using ect.
LAMUM from TeamEDA works well for us
upload your lmgrd.log from C:\Program Files (x86)\SolidWorks SolidNetWork License Manager to: OpenLM license parser (FLEXlm/FLEXnet license files, debug log and more) it will give you a comprehensive breakdown
I agree to this, we have been using few years OPEN LM, works like a charm!
I haven't used it, but sounds interesting: Work with a log SolidNetWork License Manager (lmgrd)
