In a post to the Grid Engine users list, Mark Olesen proposed a novel
approach to FlexLM license integration on Grid Engine managed clusters.
He offered to provide code that implemented his ideas with the caveat
that he would be completely unable to provide support or end-user
assistance. Since I had already written one of the FlexLM integration
HOWTO's and have a personal interest in application integration
issues I volunteered to try to support Mark's code if it meant that
he would be able to release it to the general user community.
Hopefully I'm up to the task!
I've been playing with versions of his work for several weeks now and
it is very cool, very useful and very well written. Within the last
week, Mark has finalized his code and selected a Creative Commons
license. Over the last two evenings I've been working on a GridWiki
entry documenting the basic installation, configuration and
The first draft (along with a downloadable tarball!) is now ready for
public review at this URL: http://gridengine.info/wiki/index.php/
Obviously, Mark Olesen needs to be acknowledged for proposing his
ideas and backing them up with well-written code. I'd also like to
specifically thank the fine people at Schrödinger for providing
access to some of their FLEXlm licensed software. Schrödinger's
valuable contribution made it possible for me to test, evaluate and
write about FLEXlm on Grid Engine managed systems. Thanks!
