Current Container Consumption

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

The Current container consumption row is visible only when its parent, the Current consumption panel, is displayed. If this license is not tracking license consumption for software installed in containers, the row is displayed with a value of zero.

For software (and especially Cloud Paks) running in containers, IBM requires that the license consumption is monitored by the IBM License Service. Records for each cluster are retrieved from the RESTful API of the IBM License Service by either the Flexera Kubernetes inventory agent or the lightweight Kubernetes agent. To calculate this figure:
  • For each cluster running products consuming from this license, find the most recent consumption report (covering any one or more relevant products)
  • Sum consumption for all relevant products across the cluster for that day (this means that any individual product that did not report consumption on that day counts as a zero in today's calculation)
  • Add together the results from all relevant clusters to provide the total Current container consumption.
Tip: This figure does not include consumption from products running in containers licensed under traditional sub-capacity licensing, or reported from the FlexNet inventory agent embedded in a container. It is the most recent consumption calculated from data supplied by the IBM License Service.
