The acceptable use policy for licensed software at Livermore Computing is summarized as follows:
LC provides copies of licensed software for use by LC users. Because the number of copies, or licenses, available for each product is limited, on occasion a user will try to use the software but be unsuccessful because all the licenses are in use. If a user finds that no licenses are available for a particular package, the user should check the status file for the package from any production system. Each application has its own unique file as listed below.
Each file will list the total number of licenses issued and the number of licenses in use. If all licenses are in use for the package of interest, the user may contact the LC Hotline (or LC Operations after hours) to determine if a license could be made available. (This may not be possible, however, because licenses are issued on a first come, first served basis.)
