Tracking Usage Over Time

Local License Server users can use our open-source script, which displays the maximum HP Anyware license concurrent usage for a license server over time. For more information, refer to our Github page.

Cloud Licensing users can write a short script that runs pcoip-list-licenses periodically (for example, every 60 minutes) on any Anyware agent machine to track license usage.
