    Is there an automatic way to extract the license utilization from CA Spectrum and CA PM?


    Thank you.

    Hi Bruno,


    CA Spectrum 9.3 and onward do not require a license key. It just works on a Trust based licensing. You will need to adhere to the agreement you have with Broadcom/CA on the total number of devices that you can manage in the application.


    Launch the following utility on the SpectroSERVER machine.

    This application prints out a summary when its done collecting data. Output parameter takes the file name where the detailed report is printed out. Override Class file has the model type name and the billing class number. Each line corresponds to one model type.


    Start -> Run: 'bash -login' (for Windows OS)
    > cd SS-Tools (go to $SPECROOT/SS-Tools directory)
    > ./Billing.exe



    There is also another script that will determine how many models of each type are currently in the database.

    Navigate to the $SPECROOT/vnmsh/sample_scripts/ directory.

    To run, launch as follows where <vmm-name> is the hostname of the SpectroSERVER machine:

    ./database_tally <vnm-name>

    This will need to be run on each SpectroSERVER machine.
