How to read the license status table

The vendor license server status overview is presented as a table. Similar licenses are gathered and handled as a pool. Further reading on how rlm performs pooling of licenses can be read in the manual. Often the result is one pool per product. That is the case we are going to focus on in this context.

How to determine if there are licenses available in the license pool or are they all in use?

Find the row which corresponds to the product you want to check status for. On that row locate the columns named count and inuse. The values of those columns are the cap of that pool and the current usage of that pool.

Out of a count 15 allowed simultaneously, 0 licenses are currently in use.

For licenses to be available for a new user to check out the amount in the inuse-column must be lower than the amount in count-column.
