Usage Trends

You can view the usage trend for aggregate licenses as well as individual licenses. The data is displayed for each day. When you click the usage trend icon, it opens a new window and displays the usage data as a chart. The user can use this data to analyze the license usage in the deployment.

To access this view:

  1. Go netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > System and select Licensing.
    The Licensing page is displayed with the License Details tab.122_LicDetails_1122.png
  2. Select a service or license and click the netwitness_trendicon.png icon under the Usage Trend column.
    The Usage Trend window is displayed.

    The following screenshot is an example of the Exceeded Usage Trend.

    The following screenshot is an example of the Usage Trend chart for a license with multiple services.
    The threshold limit is indicated as a horizontal red-dotted line across the chart. When actual data usage exceeds the entitled daily usage, those days are indicated by red colored bars.
    The chart can be generated to collect data for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months or custom date range.
    These charts can be exported in CSV, and PDF formats by clicking the netwitness_format1.png icon.

    Note: The maximum range for which trend can be viewed is 12 months. The pan-zoom bar at the bottom of the chart can be used to narrow the chart to a smaller time range for better visibility in that range.

    If the entitled limit exceeds the usage limit then an appropriate out-of-compliance banner is displayed. For more information, see About Out-of-Compliance Banners.
