For BMC Control-M Products that are licensed on the “per CPU – Full Capacity” unit of measurement and installed in an Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) or Microsoft Azure (“Azure”) cloud environment, a license is required for the total number of CPUs in each AWS or Azure instance upon which the Product is installed or which the Product manages, either remotely or locally. For AWS, one CPU is equivalent to one vCPU, as defined by AWS. For Azure, one CPU is equivalent to up to four Virtual Cores (as defined by Azure), rounded up to the closest multiple of four.

Server Endpoint Licensing

All machines upon which any Control-M component is installed or upon which Control-M managed workload runs must be licensed. This includes Control-M Agent/Agentless platforms onto which one or more application plug-ins are installed but also includes Control-M Agent/Agentless platforms where no application plug-ins are installed. Control-M Agent/Agentless platforms on which jobs are ordered are counted regardless of whether those jobs execute or not. All Server Endpoints are counted, including development, staging, QA, pre-production, test, and production environments.

The licensing guidelines for application plug-ins are as follows:

  • ERP and BI/DI: The application server(s) upon which Control-M managed processes are executed should be licensed in addition to the Control-M Agent machine(s) (in some cases, this may be the same machine).
  • Databases: Each database server upon which Control-M managed database related processes are being executed should be counted in addition to the Control-M Agent machine(s).
  • AFT and MFT: Only the machine(s) upon which the AFT or MFT plug-in is installed should be licensed.
  • Web Services, Java & Messaging: Only the Control-M Agent machine(s) upon which the plug-in is installed should be licensed.
  • Backup: The Control-M Agent machine(s) where the Backup plug-in is installed and also the hosts which are running the backup server software should be licensed (note that this excludes the client machines for which the Backup Server software is managing actual backup processes except where a backup takes place of the backup server machine itself). 
  • Cloud: Only the Control-M Agent machine(s) upon which the plug-in is installed should be licensed.
  • Hadoop: All machines in each managed Hadoop Cluster should be licensed.
