Client Management Suite

The software usage data appears in reports and views after you collect full inventory, enable usage tracking or create application metering policies, and after the usage information is sent to Notification Server by the Application Metering plug-in.

Software view

To access the Software view, in the Symantec Management Console, on the Manage menu, click Software.

In the left pane, under Metered Software, click Usage Tracking. Then view the usage data in the right pane.

This data can be displayed only for the software that is defined in the Software Catalog and is added to the list of managed software products. You must also enable tracking for the software that you want to appear in this view.
