How Metering Works

Metering is the process of collecting application start and end statistics from machines. The metering component of the CAM Agent is installed on machines when you install the CAM Agent and reports usage to the CAM database if you are licensed to use the metering functionality of Cherwell Asset Management and metering is enabled for a particular machine (the default). You decide which license units you want to meter, and the metering component communicates with the CAM Access Point to provide information on when applications in those metering-enabled license units are started and stopped.
