Licensing - How to get the number of seats of Activation based licenses on a license server


I have both Certificate and Activation based floating licenses for Vivado Design Edition served from the same license server.

I would like to know whether these licenses are working and the respective number of seats for each.

The following command shows the total seat number (certification + activation) for a specific feature:

lmutil lmstat -c <port@server_name> -a

How do I just show each features seat number for activation only?


This information can be found in the environment report generated by report_environment.

In the Info column of the License Information Table, there are words like TRUSTED_STORAGE, AB_TRUE. This mean this license is an AB (Activation based) license.

The Count column represent the number of seats.
