How Metering Works

When the configuration is complete, here’s how the Metering Server communicates with the metered client.

  1. A user starts a client session and initiates a host connection.

  2. The session requests a license from the Metering Server, and once granted, the host connection proceeds, and the Metering Server begins to record product usage.

  3. The session sends updates to the Metering Server at regular intervals until the user closes the session.

  4. The metering data is available for the administrator to generate reports.

    You can filter Metering Reports to show

    • activity by user, machine, IP address, and other attributes

    • concurrent usage (to comply with your license)

    • host connections
