Does anybody have any code or documentation on how to track software usage and licenses? For example, you have a ten CPU license for WebSphere. Every time you install the software, you need to drop the license count down by one. Where would you track this?

Re: Tracking Software License Usage2007-07-30T17:27:47ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.You can track this using the "Licence Pool" feature...
Create a new licence pool, add all the licences you have, that associate that licence pool with the software module (done on the software resource template)
There is documentation in the help center on how to do all of this.
