I just setup metering to monitor two pieces of software. I noticed that at the bottom of the Usage Detail - Current Month through Today . Do the counters get reset at the end of every month? I noticed in the METER_COUNTER table there is a WINDOW_BEGIN field with 2/1/2013. I'm guessing it would be best to run a report on this at the end of every month if so. I had to ask.... either that or wait a month.

We are still using 5.3.

Answer Summary:
On the metering tab change the drop down on the right from 1 month to 12 months (or whatever your choice would be) and then click on the process name. If you select 12 months and open up one, at the bottom it gives you 12 months of info.

To my knowledge, the K1000 doesn't keep historical data for metering so you would have to create a scheduled report each month.  I don't believe this changed in 5.4 but I could be wrong.

That said, there was a report that another user posted here that says it gets data for 12 months: http://www.itninja.com/question/a-report-on-software-metering-by-n-months

  • I saw that. I also saw in the upper right corner of the metering tab where you can search for usage up to 12 months. So I would assume you could. Since I've never used it before I think that threw me off. I just wanted to make sure before I lost info on 3/1.

  • I think you typed this the same time I typed my comment. Thanks for the info. They're wanting me to run this over the next three months. I just wanted to make sure I'll be able to get them a three month report before I tell them yes.
