Metering is a convenient tool to track the utilization of a software application across the machines in an organization. Using Metering, CMDB can track two usage statistics of a Software Asset using an Agent. A user has to enable Metering individually for Software Assets that one wants to track. Currently, Metering tracks the following information of a Software Asset:
- Total time the Software Application was used. Also referred to as Usage Duration.
- Time elapsed since the application was last open. Also referred to as Last Used.
The Software Meter page displays a list of software assets for which the meter is configured. From this page, you can view, configure, and delete meter from the asset.
