What are concurrency and activation counts?

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; both Harlequin Core and Harlequin MultiRIP.

A single LDK license can permit multiple RIPs to be run concurrently.

Each RIP license has a defined activation count and concurrency:

  • The activation count defines the number of computers that the license can be activated on. This sets the number of instances of the LDK licensing server that can run concurrently.
    Each activation results in a different Protection Key ID, because the Protection Key ID uniquely identifies the association of the license with a single computer (or dongle).
  • The concurrency of a license defines the number of RIPs that are allowed to obtain their entitlement to run from a single activation on a single LDK licensing server. The maximum number of RIPs that can be run from a single RIP license is therefore the product of the activation count, multiplied by the concurrency.

The Harlequin LDK Online Ordering System does not support enhancement (including extension or upgrades) of licenses with multiple activations. Enhancement of those licenses must be done manually via sales-admin and may, therefore, be significantly slower than ordering online yourself. Global Graphics recommends that you use multiple RIP licenses with one activation each unless you have a good reason to choose multiple activations.

Your LDK RIP part numbers are pre-configured to enable the appropriate number of RIP licenses. By default that is achieved by setting activations to 1 and concurrency to be the number of RIPs to be used.
