Floating licenses allow a group of users to share T-VEC licenses on a network. The licenses are managed by a license manager which limits the number of concurrent users of the tools to the number of licenses specified in a license file. T-VEC tools use the the FlexLM license manager to manage licenses.

In a FlexLM floating configuration, the T-VEC tools communicate with the FlexLM license manager to obtain licenses. The machine running the FlexLM license manager is referred to as the license server.

There are three components of the license manager:

  • FlexLM license manager (lmgrd)
  • License File
  • T-VEC license (vendor) daemon (tveclmd)
