FLEXnet Publisher (formerly known as FLEXlm) is a common software license manager from Flexera Software which implements license management and is often used in corporate environments to provide floating licenses to multiple end users of computer software.
Computer software can be licensed in a variety of ways. A license to use a piece of software may be associated with a specific machine (in FLEXlm speak, node-locked), permitting it to only run on that machine (node in a network); alternatively, a company may buy a pool of floating licenses and these licenses may be allocated dynamically to machines, a license being checked-out when a user begins using the software on any given machine and checked-in when the user finishes using the software. FLEXlm supports both usage models.
