The usage agent on Windows may generate large numbers of logging messages on computers meeting the following conditions:

  • The usage agent is enabled
  • The FlexNet inventory agent Docker service is not running (for example, because Docker is not installed)

This can result in log files growing over time to be very large.


The following details may appear approximately every 40-90 seconds in the usage agent log (usageagent.log) due to this issue.
