[Linux-cluster] Fwd: [GE users] new approach to FLEXlm license integration - The "Olesen Method" - code & draft docs available



For those who have flexlm license control software.

Andrew.


---------- Forwarded message ----------
In a post to the Grid Engine users list, Mark Olesen
proposed a novel
approach to FlexLM license integration on Grid Engine
managed clusters.

He offered to provide code that implemented his ideas
with the caveat
that he would be completely unable to provide support
or end-user
assistance. Since I had already written one of the
FlexLM integration
HOWTO's and have a personal interest in application
integration
issues I volunteered to try to support Mark's code if
it meant that
he would be able to release it to the general user
community.
Hopefully I'm up to the task!

I've been playing with versions of his work for
several weeks now and
it is very cool, very useful and very well written.
Within the last
week, Mark has finalized his code and selected a
Creative Commons
license. Over the last two evenings I've been working
on a GridWiki
entry documenting the basic installation,
configuration and
installation.

The first draft (along with a downloadable tarball!)
is now ready for
public review at this URL:
http://gridengine.info/wiki/index.php/
Olesen-FLEXlm-Integration.

Obviously, Mark Olesen needs to be acknowledged for
proposing his
ideas and backing them up with well-written code. I'd
also like to
specifically thank the fine people at Schrödinger
for providing
access to some of their FLEXlm licensed software.
Schrödinger's
valuable contribution made it possible for me to test,
evaluate and
write about FLEXlm on Grid Engine managed systems.
Thanks!
