DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


This article provides the required information to generate licensing count / reports for UIM probes. 


* Licensing change in UIM 9.x Release (Also impacts later UIM releases).

From CA UIM 9.2.0 onward, hub/robot- and probe-level licensing requirements have been removed. Deploy the hub, robot, and distsrv versions released with CA UIM 9.2.0 to remove the license dependency. If you want to continue with the older versions of hub and probes that require an extension of the license, contact our Global Customer Assistance team so that they can assist you in extending the license (if required).

* License count for each probe.

The Usage Metering (usage_metering) probe identifies the resources and the total capacity of your monitored environment.
The probe then generates the following types of billing reports:

- Overall Billing Summary Report
- Origin (CA UIM hub) specific Billing Summary Report

* Additional Information.

Regarding the count of domain/hub/robot/probes, a db query could be executed; something like:

SELECT DISTINCT A.domain, A.hub, A.robot, B.probe_name FROM CM_NIMBUS_ROBOT A, CM_NIMBUS_PROBE B WHERE A.robot_id = B.robot_id group by A.domain, A.hub, A.robot, B.probe_name

Note: You can modify this query to filter specific UIM domains, Hubs, Robots and Probes.
