Resources Consumed

FlexNet Manager Suite 2021 R1 (On-Premises)

The resources measured for this license are the raw data input. The resource measure is applied to the points table to calculate license consumption in points, with the result displayed in the Consumed field.

To identify the resource being measured, check the Metric field. Usually, you need to fill in the resource figure manually (although for some resources, you may be able to arrange for the Business Importer to update the figure periodically). When the resource level is known, different rules from the set are applied to provide volume discounts for resource being measured.

If the measured resource is Per Premium Income ($US Billions), one rule may specify 100 points consumed for the first billion, while others scale down to a mere 10 points per billion once you are measuring more than $15 billion in income. Using the value manually recorded in the Resources consumed field, FlexNet Manager Suite chooses the correct rules to use for calculating points consumed. If you entered your premium income as $2.2 billion in Resources consumed, the following rules could apply:
  • 100 points/billion for the first half billion (50 points)
  • 130 points/billion for the second half billion (65 points)
  • 74 points/billion for the range 1-2 billion (74 points)
  • 46 points/billion for the range 2-3 billion (0.2 x 46 = 9.2 points).
As fractions are rounded up to the next whole number, the total is 199 points consumed in this example, applying four rules from the set.

Only available for IBM RVU licenses.
