Enable Usage Metering

The Management and Security Server Metering Server allows administrators to track InfoConnect sessions and determine how many client workstations use the product. Metering can also be used to limit the number of concurrent users that can access a host at any given time.


  • A Micro Focus Management and Security Server, with a Terminal ID Manager configured.

  • You need to know the complete URL for the Metering server. The syntax is: http://[host name]:[port]/[metering server context name]/meter.do. (If you used the default port, you can omit the colon and port number.)

    For example:


You can use group policy to enable metering after the product is installed, or use the Installation Customization Tool to configure metering as part of the initial installation.

To configure metering via group policy

  6. Under Configure Client Metering, check the Enabled radio button.

  7. In the Metering URL box, enter the URL of your metering server.

  8. Select Require metering only if you want to prevent users from launching InfoConnect when the metering server is not available. (Enabling this setting can be useful when you are creating a trial installation and want to test to see if the metering server is running and available.)
