Jimmy Bergmark has released a snazzy freeware report generator for capturing FlexNet/FLEXlm license use. Run the app, click once to search for license servers and again to get a nicely formatted HTML report of current servers, license and user allocation. You can save the server search results making future reports just a click away.
Download from www.jtbworld.com JTB FlexReport LT
FlexReport LT is a derivative of his, widely used, JTB FlexReport tool:
“JTB FlexReport is a reports applications using the FlexNet / FLEXlm (flexlm license manager), IBM LUM (IBM License Use Management), SPLM (Intergraph SmartPlant License Manager), SLM/Sentinel LM/Sentinel RMS, LM-X, Solidworks SNL License Manager, Licman, Primavera from Oracle or 12D software licensing”
Unlike the snapshot seen in LT the full version has full logging and analysis of use over months, weeks & hours of the day. Given the cost of the applications accurate use reporting could mean a small investment in JTB FlexReport results in considerable savings through optimum license investment. It also makes capturing & presenting license use for capex justification or project/department/office billing a simple task.

PS: I first got to know Jimmy virtually through the AutoCAD My Feedback forums & his blog. Although we live about as far apart as it is possible to get without leaving the planet (Sweden & New Zealand) it was great to meet him “for real” at Autodesk University 2005 in Orlando.
