Better understand your SaaS Controller’s license consumption and limits with license usage graphs.
Note: License usage graphs are not available for on-prem Controllers.
The License Usage tab displays data for all your products from the current or most recent usage period. It shows the data captured and aggregated from the previous day. Please note that it is measured differently for each product, as described in the License Entitlements and Restrictions documentation.
To view historical usage for a particular product, click the product name link on the License Usage tab.
You will be able to see the product's license information, maximum and average usage metrics, and total (cumulative) license usage.
You can choose between viewing a line chart or bar chart. The default time-frame is 3 months, but you can adjust it in the top-right corner. You can also select from different levels of data granularity: daily, hourly, weekly, or monthly. We’ve provided the granularity levels that best correspond with different time ranges.
Data is captured in 5-minute intervals and then aggregated into larger intervals. You may notice that if you choose a longer time-frame, then certain options are disabled. For example, if you choose a time-frame longer than one month, then hourly granularity is disabled.
For certain products, like those under the Application Performance Management and Infrastructure Visibility families, the x-axis is the time frame, and the y-axis is the number of license units used. You can see two types of metrics in the header:
Note: The APM Any product includes multiple agents. To drill down into usage for a particular agent (e.g., Java), click its corresponding checkbox in the filter bar. Agents that don’t report data during the selected time-frame are grayed out in the filter.
Here’s how to interpret metrics:
Hover over a data point on the graph to see granular metrics. If you choose a time-frame of less than 1 month, you’ll see hourly metrics. If you select a time-frame greater than or equal to 1 month, you’ll see daily data.
For certain products under End User Monitoring and Application Performance Management, there are two graph types. One graph presents a cumulative plot for a given usage cycle. The other graph presents a non-cumulative plot for the same usage cycle.
In both graph types, you can specify the granularity of data you want to view (in addition to the time-frame). Please note that the data is measured differently for each product, as described in the License Entitlements and Restrictions documentation.
Click the top right to switch views between metered view and license units. The usage data presented is the same in both graphs. The y-axis reflects either the metered or license view.
For example, with Browser Real User Monitoring, usage can be viewed as pageviews or as license units. The same usage shows on both graphs’ x-axes, while either the pageviews or license units show on the respective y-axis.
License units are always rounded up to the next highest integer because that is the minimum amount you would need for your monitoring.
For example, the y-axis for Mobile Real User Monitoring represents Monthly Active Agents. This graph displays the total number of monitored events—during either a usage cycle or a time frame you choose.
For a given usage period, the Usage Overview will show usage as a percentage so you can see what quantity has been consumed against your total allocation.
Hover over a data point on the graph to see granular metrics. If you choose a time-frame of less than 1 month, you’ll see hourly metrics. If you select a time-frame greater than or equal to 1 month, you’ll see daily metrics.
This graph plots the usage for a product’s given usage cycle or time-frame. You select the granularity in the dropdown. The non-cumulative graph helps you determine:
Hover over a data point on the graph to see granular metrics. You can also view an average data point for the granularity chosen.
