When will the next release of phpLicenseWatcher be released? I love the tool, but some parts do not work, such as the graphs.
Thank you in advance for an excellent tool!!! :)

Do you have zzz.net as the search suffix in the /etc/resolv.conf ie. can you do

lmstat -c 27000@GREGORY

FlexLM checkouts error
Hi,

I've been running your excellent tools for some time now and all works very well except (you could see that coming couldn't you!) for the FlexLM checkouts section where I get an "DB Error: unknown error" message.

Any ideas?

TIA

When i start check_installation.php i get this message at the end of the page.

Your current settings are

$db_hostname = id3073;

$db_username = test;

$db_password = test;

$db_database = licenses;

$dsn = mysql://test:test@id3073/licenses

To test database connection i use Myodbc : http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/3.51.html

Which version of lmgrd tools are you using ? As a suggestion I would try with the latest version of the tools. HOWTO has the link to the latest version. You just need the lmutil command.

Can't get started
Hi,

Are you still looking after your phpLicenseWatcher code? I just found it and have installed it but have a few issues, notably the display of license details when picking Current Usage Details from the status page.

If I run lmstat -a -c <port>@<host> from the command line I get the right information but the License in Detail page comes up with 'No licenses are being used on <port>@<host> ...

Is there something I've missed during the install or is it broken?

Your help/advice would be appreciated.

Re: Suggestions/Comments ... MySQL and Graphs ...
Fallen,

How do you implement jpgraph into utilization.php?
