Peak Container Consumption

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 (On-Premises)

The Peak container consumption row is visible only when its parent, the Peak 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. FlexNet Manager Suite then:
  1. Filters the records to select only those for the products attached to this license
  2. Sums the daily consumption figures across the reporting period
  3. Selects the largest of these daily sums as the Peak container consumption value across all container clusters for all products linked to this license.
The integration of these results here in the Compliance tab gives you a "single pane of glass" to monitor consumption from the affected license.
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 peak consumption calculated from data supplied by the IBM License Service.
