Usage

Use this parameter to set the how long the instance wants to use the license (borrow_interval), and how often the instance should renew the license (renewal_interval). An interval period can be specified in days, or hours, using the format Ndays or Nhours where N is a number greater or equal to 0. The use of day, d, hour or h are acceptable short forms.

A value of “2days,25hours” means that the instance will request to borrow licenses for 2 days, with a minimum renewal duration of 25 hours. So every 23 hours we will contact the license server and renew the licenses assigned to the current device. There is also an hourly check to see that the license server is still available. If the license server cannot be contacted, warning messages will sent to the log and an alarm raised through ALRAMPROGRAM.

A value “14days,12days” means that the instance will request to borrow licenses for 14 days, with a minimum renewal duration of 12 days. So every 48 hours we will contact the license server and renew the licenses assigned to the current device.
