Measuring Packages on Independent SAP Systems

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
The following preconditions apply for creating and executing package measurements:
  • A user who wants to define package measurement jobs on an independent SAP system requires an account of type Dialog and should be assigned the role /LICMAN/ADMIN_MODULE.
  • The Satellite transport and the Roles transport must be installed on the independent SAP system. See Setup of Independent SAP Systems in the FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications Installation Guide PDF.

You can schedule package measurements on independent SAP systems to be executed at a future time and date. If the measurement should be executed periodically, you can set the recurrence. You can also create ad-hoc measurements.

FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications creates a separate job for each package that should be measured. When you change the package measurement schedule, any old measurement jobs are deleted. There can be only one active set of measurement jobs at a time.

To schedule and execute a package measurement on an independent SAP system:

  1. On the independent SAP system, execute the transaction /n/LICMAN/OFFLINE.
  2. In the Recommendation Processing and Package Measurements screen, under Package Measurements, click Select Packages.
  3. In the Offline Package Measurement screen, select the packages that you want to measure.
  4. When you are done, click Save . Return to the previous screen by clicking the Back button or pressing F3.
  5. Click Run Package Measurement.
  6. In the Offline Package Measurement dialog, specify when the packages should be measured.
    • To start the measurement immediately, select Start immediately.
    • To schedule the measurement for a specific date and time, select Start at, and set the start date and time in the Date and Time fields.
    • To set the recurrence of the measurement, select the Repeat check box and set the recurrence pattern (daily, weekly, or monthly).
  7. Click OK or press F5.

FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications automatically saves the measurement results in a dedicated table. This table is updated every time a package measurement is executed. Any previous measurement results are overwritten with the new results. This means that at any time, the table contains only one active set of package measurement results.

After the package measurement, the measurement results are collected by running the SAP Inventory Agent.
