How are Eloquence user licenses counted.
The basic idea is that each concurrent user needs
a separate user license.
A user is defined per user id and system which is used
to connect to Eloquence.
Up to 10 processes are allowed to use the same user
license, then a separate user license is required for
each group of 10 processes.
Notes: Each user can execute Eloquence
more than once without beeing required to obtain
a separate license. For example if you open two
terminal windows or use foreground/background tasks
then up to 10 processes/tasks can use of the
A separate user is considered whenever the IP address
or the user id is different. For example, a user
conecting to Eloquence services from 2 different
PCs requires two licenses. Two different logins on
a server executing programs locally would also need
two separate user licenses.
This is also valid if executing batch processes,
for example using cron. A separate user license is
required for the first batch process but up to 10
batch processes can share the same user license.
