About webMethods Metering
webMethods Metering collects data based on webMethods product usage, accumulates the data locally in cache files in the Software AG_directory \common\metering\storage directory for a period of one hour, and sends the aggregated values to the cloud server.
On average, the size of the usage measurements of one product instance for one hour is 500 bytes. For example, if there is no connection to the cloud server for 24 hours, you need 12 KB of space for the collection of data from one product instance.
webMethods Metering has two components, the webMethods Metering Agent and the webMethods Metering Server. By default, the webMethods Metering Server is hosted in Software AG Cloud and does not require an installation.
To use webMethods Metering, you must have:
*An installed webMethods Metering fix.
*An updated license for the webMethods product that will use metering. Note that if you do not update this license, the webMethods product will work without the metering functionality.
*Access to the production metering server URL. The default is https://metering.softwareag.cloud.
The latest version of the webMethods Metering Server is compatible with earlier versions of the webMethods Metering Agent. You can use the latest version of the webMethods Metering Server to measure transactions of products that use earlier versions of the webMethods Metering Agent.
