The information on this page refers to License Statistics v6.0 and newer, which introduced a new user interface (UI). If you are using a version previous to v6.0, see documentation for previous versions.

The Current Usage page under the Features section in the left navigation pane shows the usage statistics for the currently selected feature.

General Information

The General Information area includes identifying information for the feature and a summary of usage information, including a current count of licenses used, borrowed and reserved, the total licenses available, the feature's expiration date, the feature's utilization percentage, and a share code if sharing is in use (for example, "Shared on: HOST").

To select a different feature for which to view usage statistics, use the License Server and Feature pick lists in the General Information area.

Current Feature Usage grid

The Current Feature Usage list includes the user and host on which the selected feature is checked out, how many licenses that user has checked out, the checkout time(s) and how much time has elapsed since checkout, and for any borrowed licenses, when the borrow time expires.

You can add the Current Feature Usage grid to the License Statistics Dashboard. Learn more about customizing the Dashboard. 

Feature Usage graph

The Feature Usage graph gives you a visual picture of the number of licenses used throughout the day. (See Feature usage graphs for additional information about feature use graphs.)

You can hide or show total, used and borrowed licenses. The display of these usage details in the graphs is controlled by clicking the status for which you want to view data in the legend at the top of the chart. For example, clicking the "Total" option on the graph legend will remove the lines showing the number of used licenses.

The graph below displays the number of borrowed and used licenses; the display of total licenses is hidden (greyed out).

Gaps in collecting data

Empty spaces or "gaps" in the graph indicate periods when License Statistics was not running and data was not being gathered. This can happen due to one or more of the following reasons:

  • The status of the license server changed to "Down"
  • License Statistics tried to connect to the license server to gather data, but the server was temporarily unavailable

You can add the Feature Usage graph to the License Statistics Dashboard. Learn more about customizing the Dashboard. 

Filtering results

Use the Advanced Filtering area to choose whether to show total licenses on the graph. (You can see Feature usage graphs for more information.
