Overview of Licensing

The Licensing feature in Management & Control Services (MCS) reports current and historical usage of client applications, including summary statistics on maximum usage. MCS calculates usage by tracking the consumption of client licenses.

All licensing information for MCS is tracked through the primary MCS server (referred to as a standalone server, if you have only one). If you are using multiple MCS servers (a server cluster), all licensing information received by any Configuration Server is forwarded to the Management and Control Server as it is received.

MCS uses the following rules to measure license usage:
