* You need to use the X-Formation's (not Altair's) latest version of LM-X End-user utility to query Altair License Manager.

See Operating system and resource requirements for more information about requirements for gathering data from these license servers.

To import log data, place the license server log file in the License Statistics importlog directory. The License Statistics database will be automatically updated with the data in the log file, and the license server will appear in the License Server lists with a gathering type of "imported" as described in License Servers. (For information about generating denied request logs for FLEXlm/FlexNet and IBM LUM, see Denied Requests Log requirements.)

Note: Imported license server data viewable in License Statistics is limited based on the data in the imported log; therefore, some License Statistics pages may not contain any information or may be unavailable when viewing imported data.

In addition to the supported license servers listed above, you can also use License Statistics with any other license server by using a custom XML file, as described in Supporting a custom license server. License Statistics can also be used to gather statistics for standalone applications. For more information, see Monitoring standalone applications with Usage Client.

If you have problems with a particular license server, you may be able to obtain a pre-release version of the parser. See Parser download updates for more information.
