Hi - we have a scenario which uses commercial software (from Cadence, in this case) that's using FlexLM for licensing, but we run their tools on a HPC cluster, which uses a scheduler to controll the dispatch of jobs. Sometimes the scheduler needs to terminate a job based on the license(s) that it is using.

So, my question is, is there a way to trace back from a checked-out license (possibly from the LICENSE HANDLE) to the process number on the client that actually checked out the license ? Alternatively, is there some additional "comment" information that can be supplied to the license server when checking out a license so that the process that did the checkout can be tracked ?

Thanks,

John
