Raw Consumption

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 (On-Premises)

The result of the most recent inventory import and license consumption calculation, Raw consumption shows the current points calculated for consumption on this license, taking into account exemptions for server roles and the like. It is generally a copy of the total of the Consumed column from the Consumption tab. This figure does not take into account the previous peak (high-water mark) of points consumed. However, if this figure is greater than the previous high-water mark that was last seen in the Peak consumed field, the peak value is updated to record this new high level, in which case the two displayed values are equal. It is also quite common for Raw consumption to be less than Peak consumed. For more about the relationships between various consumption fields (with special emphasis on IBM PVU licenses), see Relationships Between Consumption Fields.

Tip: If this license is tracking consumption for software installed in containers and tracked by the IBM License Service, this figure includes the current container consumption (along with the consumption tracked in traditional IT infrastructure).

Only available for IBM PVU, IBM VPC, and Oracle Named User Plus licenses.
