What is the detailed difference between burst and CCL license, except the valid time. Do they affect discovery and inventory of RN150?

Hello -

There is no difference between burst and CCL licenses in regards to the data collected from licensed targets.  The primary difference, as you pointed out, is the valid time period.  A "Burst" is essentially a license pack that expires after 30 days from the date/time the pack is initiated.  All licenses included in the pack/burst start and expire at the same time.  Note: the pack/burst start date/time is user initiated in the UI.

 

A CCL license is valid until the end of the subscription (typically 1 year).

 

Discovery and Inventory collection are not limited by licensing.  Therefore you can perform discovery and inventory as much as needed without regard to the number of licenses you have in your subscription.

Hi @bmadden , I have some more question relate to license:

1. Do we need to license for network devices. If not, is there any affect building application stack process?

2. After the license become invalid, are built application stacked still visible on the system?

Thank you.

1. Do we need to license for network devices. If not, is there any affect building application stack process?

Network devices are not used to collect dependency data between servers, this is collected via Netstat and ifconfig queries directly from the licensed servers. This data is used to create application stacks based on critical dependencies . A license is required to collect data from network devices, but you will only see inventory and performance data as documented here:  https://docs.flexera.com/foundationcloudscape/help/FCWhatWeCollect.htm

2. After the license become invalid, are built application stacked still visible on the system?

Yes, any data collected from a licensed server is still available after the license is removed from that server. You can still fully report on this system, move it between application stacks, etc. You will just not be collecting any additional data once the license is removed from the server. Application stacks and reporting will be visible until the end of the Cloudscape subscription.
