How long does FNPLicensingService normally stay running after the last client disconnects on Mac or Linux?

How long does FNPLicensingService normally stay running after the last client disconnects on Mac or Linux?

Summary

How long does FNPLicensingService normally stay running after the last client disconnects on Mac or Linux?

Question

Because the licensing service isn?t a ?service? on a Mac (we use install_fnp.sh to generate a setuid-root binary that gets invoked by Flex-enabled applications via our libraries), this brings up the question, how long does FNPLicensingService normally stay running after the last client disconnects?


Answer

On Mac, and indeed Linux, the 'service' only stays running as long as it takes to perform the privileged activity its parent process requested, probably of the order of tens of milliseconds.
