How Often Do ESRD Software Products Check Licensing?
ESRD products periodically communicate with the FlexNet license manager to ensure the connection is secure. The periodicity of license checking depends on the licensed ESRD product feature.
StressCheck® Core License
The StressCheck® Core license remains checked out while StressCheck® is open. Once StressCheck® is closed, the license will be released back to the server after a few minutes.
StressCheck® Solver Licenses
Typically, a solver license is released “in session”, meaning users should not have to close down StressCheck® to release this license once the solver completes or fails. Once the solver completes or fails, the solver license will be released back to the server after a few minutes.
StressCheck® Advanced Module Licenses
StressCheck® Advanced modules, such as Fracture Mechanics, StressCheck® Composites, SRS and BRS, may remain checked out once requested during the session. For example, extracting a stress intensity factor (SIF) during a session will result in a Fracture Mechanics module license being checked out. The Fracture Mechanics license will then be returned to the license server once that session is terminated. The MeshSim Advanced module, which is commonly used to generate boundary layer automeshes around 3D cracks, will be checked in shortly after usage.
