Configuring the purging settings for application metering data

Inventory Solution

Application metering is only available on Windows computers.

Application metering data is stored on metered computers and then sent to the CMDB. Over time, you may want to delete (purge) application metering data. You can purge metering events, reports, and summary data. You can also configure the settings that purge the data at configured time intervals.

See Application summary data

This task is a step in the following processes:

  • Tracking usage of the managed software products

  • Metering and denying applications
