The mathlm command starts the network license manager for
Mathematica. The license manager authorizes the running of
based on entries in a password file.
When mathlm is started, it normally sets itself up as a background
process and continues running until it is explicitly terminated. Note that
if one mathlm process is running, any other mathlm processes
you try to start will automatically exit immediately.
Print help message and the current machine's MathID.
- -logfile file
Write a log of license transactions to file.
- -pwfile file
Look for Mathematica passwords in file (default mathpass).
- -restrict prog
Use prog object file or shell script to limit or deny access to specified users or machines.
Write the log to the syslog. This is written to user.info.
- -timeout n
Retain a license suspended with ^Z for n hours. Default is infinity.
Print debugging information to stderr and keep mathlm in the foreground.
File locations are determined at installation time.
