Floating License Usage Statistics Page

This report page provides some usage statistics for the floating licenses. It is helpful for determining the number of licenses that are needed and monitoring times when licenses are consumed. It includes the following information:
  • Maximum number of concurrent licenses - Shows the maximum number of floating licenses that can be consumed at any given time.
  • Concurrent license consumption per day - A chart that shows the peak number of licenses that were consumed and the total number of users that were rejected, on a daily basis. This chart can be used to detect the amount of concurrent licenses that are needed to avoid having rejected users.
    Tip: You can click on any bar to see the license consumption per hour for that particular day.

  • Concurrent license consumption per hour - A chart that shows the peak number of licenses that were consumed per hour throughout that particular month. This is useful for identifying the time of day when the most licenses were consumed.
