Customer Beneficial LicensingWe strive to create real value for our customers. Some customers want to check a resource or two across many servers. Per-server licensing is expensive for them. On the other hand, some customers want to monitor many different resources on a few servers. Per-monitor licensing is expensive for them. For that reason, we've introduced Customer Beneficial Licensing -- our licensing is as flexible as your needs.
With PA Server Monitor and PA Storage Monitor you can choose whether to use per-server or per-monitor licensing. The license dialog lets you make the selection, and shows you how many per-server or per-monitor licenses you have.
NOTE: The licensing mode you select is purely an accounting choice (i.e. how the product counts what you are monitoring compared to the purchased licenses). It does not affect the functionality of the product in any way.
|Each single license can...||watch this many servers...||or create this many monitors|
In the above example, a monitor is a single monitor-type directed at a single computer. If you've used the application, a monitor is represented by an icon below the server as shown in the example below.
CAVEAT: Each license should only be installed on a single computer at a time (excluding Corporate Ultra licenses). In the examples above where multiple computers/devices are monitored, those computers/devices would all be monitored from a single PA Server Monitor or PA Storage Monitor installation. (Naturally that doesn't apply to Corporate Ultra licenses were the per-monitor or per-server choice doesn't come into play)
