Device Licenses consumption Count
I am very much eager to know that:
1) "How to check exact Device Licenses consumed by which device on enVision Server?"
2) Any methodology enVision is using to counting the device?
3) Device license, is it consumed by only "Active" device?
Need some input on licensing count so that we can use effectively these licenses, instead of wasting for unwanted devices.
So please anybody can help me?
You can get the device count consumption by looking at the "Managed Monitored Devices" screen on the admin-gui. The usual path to this screen is "Overview - System Configuration - Devices - Managed Monitored Devices". The screen allows you to build filter expressions to get the devices per collector:
For example, you can use it for a query like (see attached screenshot):
WHERE Node Name IN 'your-collector-nodename' AND System IS false
The number of rows returned here is your current device count consumption. If you want to know the consumption for a given device type, say how much are windows devices consuming, you can strenthen the query to add more "AND" clauses.
enVision does not include "system" and "obsolete" devices in the license count - everything else counts. The former are enVision's own devices, i.e. devices that generate enVision's runtime logs and the latter are those devices which have been deleted using the same "Manage Monitored Devices" screen. Ususally, it is a good idea to get rid of devices that are not "Active" because they are not really being collected from and are still consuming your device count. You can get a list of such devices with a query like:
WHERE Node Name IN 'your-collector-nodename' AND Collection NOT IN 'Active'
Hope that helps.
