How to check that when the SD licenses exceeded

Jump to solution
We have limited number of licenses for our SM. We need to create a business case to increase the licenses. For that we need to extract a report like in last month how many times we have exceeded the license limit. What is the way we can get this report. Thanks

Look in stathistory. There you will see various stats by the hour.

Hi,

We have created a javascript that writes down the license usage into a specific file to track this.

We also monitor the logfile since there you get license info like this:

14784( 57072) 09/03/2010 10:16:49 RTE I User XXXXX has logged in and is using a Floating license (172 out of a maximum 205)

as suggested above the log file is a good pointer to number of users logged on.

Crystal reports is also good the read stathistory in previous post.


also check your inactivity timer and make sure its not set to 2 hours.....

Thnx all, can you please tell what "value" column is showing in the stathistory table? Is it the total number of licenses used by a module in 1 day or wht?

Tool creates a new stathistory record daily. If a stathistory record already exists, the record updates. If not exist, it creates a new record.

For example, to search for floating license Configuration Management records, U'll get:

Configuration Management - Floating

Each stathistory record updates with the number of named or Floating licenses used at that moment. The number updates only when it is greater than the number already in the table. This enables the administrator to keep track of the highest number of licenses used at any time.

It is daily. See online help.

The stathistory table updates every time a user logs on to the system. A stathistory record tracks the named and Floating licenses on an application basis.

The application creates a new stathistory record daily. If a stathistory record already exists, the record updates. If one does not exist, the application creates a new record. The stathistory record names are:

Application License type
Application name - named
Application name - Floating

For example, to search for floating license Configuration Management records, type:

Configuration Management - Floating

Each stathistory record updates with the number of named or Floating licenses used at that moment. The number updates only when it is greater than the number already in the table. This enables the administrator to keep track of the highest number of licenses used at any time.

The stathistory does not track license usage but how many users accessed that module license for the day. So if someone logout, the value does not get subtracted by one. It's a very rough indicator on how many users 'wants to use" the module in a day.
