Licensing - How many licenses will be checked out when SmartXplorer or ExploreAhead spawn multiple jobs across network machines?

Description

How many licenses will be checked out when SmartXplorer or ExploreAhead spawn multiple jobs across network machines?

Solution

One. With a floating network license, SmartXplorer and ExploreAhead will check out only one ISE license or seat, even though many (e.g., 30) simultaneous spawns of MAP or PAR are going on across many (e.g., 30) different network machines.

For node-locked licenses, users will not be able to use SmartXplorer or ExploreAhead to spawn to other machines, but can run multiple jobs locally on that single license (e.g., one job on each processor of a multi-core system).
