The License Quota Usage tab provides cumulative information about license usage for Veeam Service Provider Console, Veeam Cloud Connect, Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam ONE and Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365.

View License Usage Information

The License Quota Usage tab includes the following widgets:

  • Managed Workloads widget shows the current number of managed workloads and workloads usage trend for the previous quarter.

To show the necessary product, use the list at the top of the widget:

  • Veeam Service Provider Console — show the number of managed Veeam backup agents. The view shows the number of workstation agents (computers that run Veeam backup agents in the Workstation mode) and server agents (computers that run Veeam backup agents in the Server mode).

For each Veeam backup agent type, the view details the number of licensed agents, new agents, agents with exceeded license and total agent quota configured by your service provider. Click a chart bar to drill down to the list of Veeam backup agents with a corresponding license status.

 

Note:

If your service provider uses Rental license, Veeam Service Provider Console will treat Veeam backup agents registered within the current calendar month as New. New Veeam backup agents consume the Workstation agents and Server agents quotas, but can be managed in Veeam Service Provider Console even if these quotas are exceeded.

When the new month starts, you have 7 days of grace period. By the end of this period, you must decrease the number of managed Veeam backup agents or request for increase in agent quotas. Otherwise, the license status of Veeam backup agents  that exceed the specified quotas will be set to Unlicensed. These agents will be excluded from management in a LIFO (last in, first out) queue: Veeam backup agents that are registered (activated) last are excluded first from the management scope.

If you increase the Veeam backup agent quota after the grace period is over, Veeam Service Provider Console will not automatically activate Veeam backup agents that were excluded from management. To start managing Veeam backup agents with the Unlicensed status, you must activate them manually. For details on switching Veeam backup agents to managed mode, see Activating Veeam Backup Agents.
