Using Netlink, when we have more users than Mathematica licenses (used in a pool), we get messages such as:

Error code: 11. Connected MathLink program has closed the link, but there might still be data underway,

that I translate into a more user friendly message.

There's a Wolfram License Management Monitor on a server and it generates these reports:

Ref: http://uczelnia.mazovia.edu.pl/info/mathematica.html enter image description here

Unfortunately the License Server is locked down (its still in the network unlike this: How to access Mathematica license server (being outside of the local network)) and I can't install IIS or a Windows Service to retrieve the License Report on demand.

Is there a command that can be used in Mathematica (via Netlink or Front-End) to get this information?


As per http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/program/monitorlm.html, I can't get this command to work:

monitorlm  "servername"

    $\begingroup$ Is that not an executable command? eg here it'd be run from the command line as /usr/local/math/MathLM800/bin/monitorlm license (for example) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the comment, in the environment I am working in.. it wont fly, unfortunately my hands are tied. Hence my recommendation is to shell the exe with a script to capture the details. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You will have to get proper privileges to access mathlm. A license user does (quite probably by design) not have access to the license server. $\endgroup$

monitorlm is an exe that sits on a License Server, its not a Mathematica command.

  • $\begingroup$ You don't. As I understand your question, this is not an answer to it. Perhaps you can elaborate. $\endgroup$
