License Usage Reporting
If you use a Rental license, you must submit a license usage report to Veeam every month. The license usage report is required for license update. By comparing the number of managed workloads in the monthly report, Veeam can make a decision on whether to allow license update. If the monthly usage report does not deviate from the highest watermark value significantly, the license will be updated.
You can report on license usage in the following products:
- Veeam Service Provider Console
With Veeam Service Provider Console, you can perform the following operations:
