Cetrus Process Meter provides data visualization for reporting and analysis.
Reports are divided into three sections based on use cases:
1. General License Use – Know your needs with CPM
2. Expense-2-Project – Increase profit margins
3. IT Administration – Streamline processes
Concurrent Use Report
Shows:The number of active applications and their activity states.
Example: Identify peak license use to optimize your number of licenses.
In the example above:
- Green bars – Active time, when an application is actively being used.
- Yellow bars – Inactive time, when an application is open, but not actively used.
- Orange bars – Timeout, when an application has sat idle for a long period of time.
Unique Users per Day
Shows: The maximum number of different users that used a program on a daily basis.
Example: Identify unique user count for purchasing subscriptions or tokens.
Application Use Ranking
Shows: A comparison between how much time the user spent actively using an application and letting it sit open and idle.
Example: Compare how much time each user spends using an application in each activity state.
Last Usage Dates
Shows:How many days each user has used an application.
Example: Identify which licenses are no longer used to re-assign to new users.
Shows: Recorded high-level session information.
Example: Identify and analyze sessions to see typical or unusual use.
Shows: All detailed session information.
Example: Use as a supplement to the Session Summary Report when more information is needed.
Daily Peak License Usage (With License Server Data)
Shows: Maximum number of licenses used per day.
Example: Use as an indicator of when the maximum number of licenses will be exceeded.
E2P Summary of Charges by Project
Shows: Summary of all billing, grouped by project.
Example: See and compare the changes that will be applied to each project.
E2P Time by Project
Shows: A summary of all project time.
Example: Analyze which projects are using the most licensing time for better project management.
E2P Active Time by Application
Shows: What applications are being used the most, relative to all other monitored applications.
Example: Analyze which applications are being used the most for licensing purposes and/or to adjust billing per hour costs.
E2P Summary of Charges by User
Shows: A summary of all user billing.
Example: Compare billable application use between users.
E2P Time by User
Shows: A summary of all E2P time, grouped by user.
Example: Compare active/billable time for personnel billing and resource analysis.
Shows: the nitty gritty E2P submission details.
Example: Use as a supplement to other E2P Reports when more detail is needed.
Usage Summary by User – Pie and Bar Charts
Shows: Active use time for applications, grouped by user.
Example: Rank users by active application use time.
Shows: Which users have used the monitored application the most.
Example: Compare active application use by users to determine who needs what applications the most.
Software Inventory by Application
Shows: Software grouped by application name and the number of installations (count) within your company.
Example: Identify counts of unneeded, unwanted, or incompatible software.
Software Inventory by Desktop
Shows: The software installed on each workstation.
Example: Identify if an application should be upgraded, removed, or installed on a machine.
Shows: Hardware installed on each workstation.
Example: Identify if the machine has enough memory to support a new application.
Shows: Available disk space on any inventoried machine and when the inventory ran.
Example: Identify which machines have inadequate disk space to support a new application or upgrade.
