My company is interested in converting a number of single-user licenses to floating ones. I just need to make sure when is the floating license seat checked out. In this KB article from June 2010:
it says that
"For an Intel compiler product, the license is checked out (allocated) at
the very beginning when compiler or debugger is started; and returned
when the compiler or debugger work is *done*."
However, just 3 months earlier, in March 2010, in this Forum
"For example, if I a have integrated Intel FOTRAN and Visual Studio 2008
am I consuming a licence whilst debugging, or does the licence only get
consumed when I do a compilation?", your answer was
"Intel compiler checks out an available license only when compilation starts. "
So, which one is correct? Our developers use debugger a lot (well yeah, they should make less bugs), so the answer really matters for me.
