Plain Text for Licenses and Logs

Plain input. Plain output.

We're committed to an open architecture. Feel free to share the precise behavior of your licensing model with your customers because behavior is driven by text files instead by logic within your source code. And assess usage of licenses with ease since it's always recorded in fully documented, unencrypted log files. Users can choose from several off-the-shelf RLM usage reporting solutions from our partners – or create their own report writer - we never force your customer to buy a license management tool to understand their usage of your products. These reports support pay-per-use billing models since RLM report logs are always authenticated to ensure data integrity. Plain input. Plain output.

RLM transparently queues, in parallel, for busy licenses across multiple servers. Designate a standby license server that assumes complete responsibility should a primary license server fail. This advanced software licensing functionality is built into RLM. You get it without writing a bit of custom code.

Resolve license contention and setup problems swiftly since logs are unencrypted, licenses are clearly mapped to product names, and diagnostics from all licensed clients and license servers are always available. Customers ship the diagnostic output to you via email for prompt service. RLM's software protection service never gets in the way of diagnosing customer problems.
