Purpose

The purpose of this document is to describe how to know the number of license that are being consumed by agents.

Introduction

When adding agent it is easy to loose track of how many Agents has been registered, and how many have been actively scanned, which will have an impact on the licensing.

Agent Licensing Information

To see the number of licenses being consumed:

  1. Navigate to Main Menu > Settings > Account.



  2. Click on the License tab.



    In the Agent Information area, the number of Registered, Scanned and Outdated agents are displayed.

    OptionDescription
    Agent registeredShows the number of registration agents.
    Agent scannedShows the number of scanned agents.
    Agent outdatedShows how many assets are running an outdated Agent version, indicating the number of Agents need updating.


Note

An agent is considered as any other scan and therefor licensed as such. An agent that performs a scan will require one (1) license from your license pool. When an asset is also being scanned from an external scanner it also will require a license. If an agent AND a external scanner both scans the same asset, it will require two (2) licenses as it is seen as two (2) different assets.
