How License Usage count is shown on CPPM
In CPPM, the License usage count is done is separate ways for separate modules to allow sudden bursts of users. In order to accommodate more users than the licensed limit, we calculate rolling average count of user as License Usage. Below are the ways with which the license usage is counted as
Policy Manager: It’s a rolling average of unique endpoints (MAC Addresses) per week calculated over M days (where M >0 and <=30). For example, if unique endpoints from Day1-Day8 are 500 and unique endpoints from Day2-Day9 are 600, then the Policy Manager License usage is shows as 550. The usage is calculated at 2:05 AM every day and the max number of samples would be 30. Each sample being total count of unique users for last 7 days in decremented way. If the average of the count resulted in decimal values then the license usage is shown as the value before the decimals. i.e, if the average is 500.1 – 500.9 will be shown as 500.
OnGuard – the license usage is calculated as above with unique endpoints doing health check.
Guest Manager – the license usage is moving average per day calculated over M days (where M>0 and <=30). For example, if unique guests on day are 500 and in day if there are 600, then the Guest Manager license usage is 550. The usage is calculated at 2:05 AM every day and the max number of samples would be 30. Each sample being total count of unique users for last day in decremented way.
Onboard : Onboard license usage is count of unique Client certificates created under Onboard and the license usage will decrease only when the client certificate is revoked/deleted. Until a valid client certificate is present on Onboard, it counts towards the license usage.
