Monitor License Consumption

OpenLink's License Manager technology provides a sophisticated and easy to use License statistics and monitoring facility. This page introduces you to that facility and provides alternative techniques for versions of the software that do not contain it.

    link.

  3. Login with your Virtuoso dba account.

  4. Click the

    System Admin

    tab.

  5. Locate the

    License

    section to review the terms of your Virtuoso license.

  6. Locate the

    Clients

    section to review open connections that consume Virtuoso license points.
