License usage report details

The license usage report displays information about the licensed features of Infrastructure Management, exact number of licenses used for each Infrastructure Management feature or monitor solution.

From the Operator Console, the report is available from the Options > Administration tab > BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management section.
The report is refreshed once a day. 

Note

Infrastructure Management native monitors are not counted. Existing customers can view native monitors by running the old license usage report.

The following table describes the main elements of the report.

Unit of measurement: Server endpoint
Limitations: 
The host cannot be displayed for solutions with no I2D.

  • For custom category, the user must edit the custom-solutions-license-report.conf file in the pronet/conf folder:

    <custom-solutions>
       <mo-types solution-name="My custom solution">P_PATROL_MSC_MAIN,_PATROL_MSC_SEC</mo-types>
       <mo-types solution-name="Another custom solution">P_PATROL_ACS</mo-types>
    </custom-solutions

    mo-types element:

  • Solution name - The name of your solution
  • Element value - List of monitor types representing devices in the solution, separated by comma

Units of measurement: Server endpoint
Counts the number of OS instances that are monitored by an AppSight black box or run an application server that is monitored by an AppSight black box. 
Limitations:

  • TrueSight App Visibility Manager count can be duplicated when two application servers are deployed on a single host which does not have a host name and each application server is configured to listen on a different IP (assuming the host has more than one IP), then the host is counted twice.
  • If a server is de-provisioned but the AppSight Repository is not updated, the report keeps reporting this server as monitored.

Units of measurement: Server endpoint
For custom solutions, you must edit the custom-solutions-license-report.conf file in the pronet/conf folder:

<custom-solutions>
   <mo-types solution-name="My custom solution">P_PATROL_MSC_MAIN,_PATROL_MSC_SEC</mo-types>
   <mo-types solution-name="Another custom solution">P_PATROL_ACS</mo-types>
</custom-solutions

mo-types element:

  • Solution name - The name of your solution
  • Element value - List of monitor types representing devices in the solution, separated by comma 
Third-party and Custom Analytics Add-on

Units of measurement: Server endpoint
Counts the number of OS instances monitored by the following adapters:
