These values work in combination to help you understand your license usage, as described in the following example.

  • At a later time, you move one machine to another machine group. The Max Usage Since Last Reset value is 3 and the Current Usage value is 2.
  • You reset the usage for the Production machine group. The Max Usage Since Last Reset value is 2 and the Current Usage value is 2.
