Usage track in FNMS


In Gathering FlexNet Inventory, it says "usage tracking is only available in the full FlexNet inventory agent)" ( What does "usage tracking" include? Where can I find or how can I use this "usage tracking" on FNMS?

Thank you so much for your support.

Hi @anhpham1652 

Usage metering is a way to find out if a software is really in use or not, for unused software you have the possibility to re-allocate the license to another user and by that save money (you need third party tools to manage the uninstallation of SW on client computers).

The second part of usage metering is that it will enhance the compliance checks for all licenses with license metric=User. By tracking all users on that device that are using the software.
