What about MonolixSuite running on a cluster ?

MonolixSuite can run on a cluster. There are two possibilities.

Cluster installation with a shared MonolixSuite installation
MonolixSuite is installed on a master server using the procedure described in ’Floating license’ section. The license file (obtained during activation procedure) is copied in the directories {MonolixSuite user install path}/config/system/access and {MonolixSuite install path}/bin/Monolix_mcr/runtime/config/system/access.
Each cluster node accesses to Monolix through a shared directory (via CIFS, Network drive, NFS, …). The user runs an application of MonolixSuite directly, no activation is required. Nevertheless, when a user runs an application of MonolixSuite a license token is taken (there is no limit of runs on cluster nodes). If all license tokens are used (too many users run the same application in the same time), a popup titled “Lixoft activate” appears and the user is supposed to wait until at least one token is released.

Cluster installation with MonolixSuite installed on each node
License server (RLM) has to be installed on a master server and the license file is download using the procedure described in “Floating license” section. MonolixSuite is installed on each cluster node. During this installation it is not necessary to activate MonolixSuite when the popup titled “Lixoft activate” appears (just close the popup). The license file (obtained previously) is supposed copied in the directories {MonolixSuite user install path}/config/system/access and  {MonolixSuite install path}/bin/Monolix_mcr/runtime/config/system/access of each node.
