Introducing SACS 10.x CONNECT Edition
System Enhancements and Corrections
There is little doubt that the design of every infrastructure project today involves the collaboration of many individuals and organizations across multiple disciplines. It is with this context that we have developed Bentley Cloud Services to facilitate successful project outcomes for you and your organizations. Bentley Cloud Services helps you produce better designs by facilitating collaboration, interoperability, standardization and skills development. For an organization and enterprise, Bentley Cloud Services provides greater insight and control over project design, deliverables and the people working on them. In the sections that follow we look at some of the capabilities and services that are delivered today, with more being added every week, with Bentley Cloud Services to help you achieve even greater project and personal success. Please visit www.bentley.com/connect to keep up to date on the latest capabilities.
The core premise of Bentley Cloud Services is to facilitate successful project outcomes through common capabilities and shared services across desktop, mobile, server and cloud. To enable this, Bentley has utilized Microsoft’s Azure cloud-service to connect uniformly and consistently with and across users, projects, and enterprises. To enable the value and your success on Bentley Cloud Services it is imperative that users register for a complimentary CONNECTED account, sign in when using your CONNECT Edition products and associate your design models with a CONNECTED Project.
For more information on the benefits Bentley Cloud Services, you can visit the Bentley Cloud Services Overview Communities website.
After Installation, SACS products must now be activated. SACS products DO NOT support trial license status. Launch SACS 10.1. The following dialog will appear. Click on the “Bentley License Tool…” button.
Select all the SACS license products and click the “Activate” button.
The system will activate the licensed products.
SACS 10.x uses Bentley SELECT Trust Licensing – the same licensing used by all other Bentley products. Trust licensing ensures uninterrupted access to run your Bentley software, regardless of the availability of licenses. In some software products from other vendors, a licensing service was used to check out a license when the application starts up and check it back in when the program exits. This restricts the use of software once all the current licenses are in use. SACS now uses the trust licensing approach that is a benefit of your Bentley SELECT subscription.
Trust licensing allows any member of your engineering team to run SACS at any time and eliminates the need to have an uninterrupted connection to SELECTserver and consequently this provides greater flexibility and greater reliability in operation. Instead of requiring the connection to SELECTserver, SACS simply records usage of the application and allows you to access reports to see how licenses are being used in your team. License usage is aggregated and reported back to SELECTserver on a regular basis, at least once every thirty days.
You can review your team’s usage of SACS via a web-based interface through a wide range of reports. These reports are available at http://selectserver.bentley.com and let you see who used what software and when. This information will be valuable to you in ensuring that you are getting best value from your software. The designated account contact for your organization will have permission to login to this server and to review these reports. This SELECTserver web portal also includes tools for managing licenses including managing check-outs, forcing check-ins of licenses, if required, and controlling access to applications.
If your recorded usage shows a peak usage that is greater than the number of licenses that you own, your Bentley account manager will contact you to discuss the usage. They will review with you whether your current license portfolio matches your license needs and can recommend a range of options to true-up to ensure you have the licenses you need. Peak usage is the maximum number of licenses that are used within any 1-hour period.

For more information on the benefits of trust licensing and the true-up process, you can visit: http://www.bentley.com/trust
For full technical details on SELECTserver licensing, start with the Introduction section of the following user manual: https://selectserver.bentley.com/BSS/Admin/Help/en/index.html
Use the License Management Tool installed with your applications to view what licenses you have available on a particular machine.
Ensure that your designated contact person and/or system administrator is able to sign in to selectserver.bentley.com and view reports on usage
Configure SELECTserver to send over usage messages to a designated administrator weekly
Use the Scheduled Reports function in SELECTserver to send usage reports to a designated administrator weekly Use these email and web reports to better understand how your team uses SACS licenses. In particular, the Peak Usage reports will indicate if your license usage matches your ownership.
If you wish to control which licenses can be used on which machines, use the Client Access Restrictions command in the Site Configuration menu of selectserver.bentley.com to apply these controls.
Communicate with your Bentley Account Manager about your license usage, particularly if you expect your peak usage to increase above the number of licenses you own.
Use license check-out only when you need to work off site without an internet connection for more than 30 days. There is no need to check out licenses when working in a connected environment and doing so will record that license as being continuously in use. This may add to your peak usage level.
If your license usage reports show that your peak usage is higher than the number of licenses that you own, your Bentley Account Manager will contact you and discuss options with you. These options may include adding more licenses, changing the mix of licenses that you own, quarterly term licenses or changing how you use licenses.
For day to day use, a continuous internet connection is not required. You need an internet connection only when initially activating your license and at least once every month in order to record usage on the SELECTserver. It is also possible to manually submit usage logs if your security requirements mean that an internet connection is not possible.
No, usage is recorded per machine. Multiple instances of an application running on the same machine records 1 use, it does not record multiple uses.
An interval for a SELECT subscription is 1 hour on the clock e.g. from 11am to 12 noon. SELECTserver counts the number of licenses used from the license pool during each interval. The daily peak usage is the highest number of licenses used during any 1 hour interval of that day. See
There is no need to check out a license to your machine unless you are going to be working offline for 30 days or more. In fact, checking out a license will record the license as being in continuous use so this could potentially increase the calculation of your firm’s peak license usage.
Trust licensing uses the same usage logging mechanism you are using now with non-trust licensing. It transmits usage data using standard internet protocols and obscures user and machine names using a SHA-1 hash so that they cannot be read outside your company.
SELECT subscribers are able to access SELECT server training via the Bentley LEARN server.
SELECT Open Access is an industry first that provides any subscriber with unrestricted portfolio-wide access so they can employ the best and most comprehensive mix of Bentley applications for all disciplines for every project.

SACS CONNECT Edition (v10.x) has the following system minimum requirements:
Pentium 4 or higher central processing unit (CPU).
512 megabytes (Mb) of RAM minimum. SACS performance is dependent on the size of the SACS model and the amount of available system resources; see SACS System PC Recommendations below.
Microsoft® Windows® 8/8.1 Microsoft Windows 7
Microsoft Windows 10
Internet Explorer 6 or later
Windows Media Player (for analysis sound file support)
A hard disk partition with 800 Mb of free space is required for the SACS installation.
A video card with a chipset that supports OpenGL. A reference list may be found at Supported Graphics Cards
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Network Server and Network Client Installations - The Local Area Ethernet Network should be 100 Base-T or greater. TCP/IP network protocol is supported.
Note: Remote access connections such as Terminal Server are not supported.
SACS CONNECT Edition (v10.x) will run satisfactorily with most basic new PC configurations for both laptops and desktop PCs. For minimal configuration PCs or older PCs, the most notable degradation in performance will be in 3D rendering applications (Precede) and when model size exceeds 1000 joints. For model sizes greater than 1000 joints it is recommended that additional memory and storage be added as stated below. The following recommendations are for optimal SACS performance.
RAM - 1024 megabytes (Mb) of free (1) RAM minimum, 4096 Mb or more is preferred. SACS will utilize all available RAM. SACS performance is dependent on the size of the SACS model and the amount of available system resources.
Free RAM refers to available RAM after all operating system processes have been loaded.
CPU - A multi-core CPU is recommended although not required.
Operating System - Windows 7 Professional or later.
Note: All x86 versions of Windows cannot utilize more than 3200 Mb of RAM. The x64 version of Windows should be considered to take advantage of additional memory as well as future SACS upgrades.
Hard Disk - 800 Mb of free space is required for the SACS installation. A SATA RAID 0 hard disk is recommended for optimal analysis performance.
Note: After the SACS installation is complete the free space used for executions should not fall below 50% of the total drive capacity. Total free space for execution should be at least 1 gigabyte for small models solutions. Very large model solution could require 400 gigabytes or more.
Video Card - A video card that supports OpenGL is required for all 3D rendering SACS products. It is very important to make sure that the graphics drivers on your computer are up to date for maximum performance and correct operation. A reference list of available video cards can be found at http://developer.techsoft3d.com/hoops/hoops-visualize/graphics-cards
Recommended Computer Specs for Wind Turbine Parallel Processing
Processor: Fastest 64bit available (Intel i7 or better)
Number of Processors: Minimum 12 (without hyper threading preferred)
RAM: Minimum 12GB
BUS: Fastest Available
Storage: Solid State Drive 1.5TB-2.0TBUsing the Optimal Number of Processors.
It’s important to determine the optimal number of processors required for fastest processing by benchmarking the system by running multiple analyses using different number of processors to determine the number which gives the optimal speed.
NOTE: I/O to the disk/drive can be a bottle neck (hence the fastest bus and I/O requirements).
Program Help: Detailed feature information may be accessed directly from the calling application by selecting the Help command, or by pressing the Help button from any of the application dialogs. Be sure to explore the program Help for answers to your questions.
On-Line Documentation: On-line documentation is available in PDF format and is accessible through Executive“Manuals” tab.
