License activation and tracking

To use a license permanently, OPMONis must be able to query the status of the license from the OPMONis license server regularly. This check also determines whether the number of permitted activations of a license has been exceeded.

For this, OPMONis generates a unique identifier for each system on which OPMONis is installed. The license installed on the system, together with this system identifier and the computer name, is reported to the license server every 24 hours.

If it is detected that a license is used too often, the system with the oldest activation is deactivated. Thus, OPMONis can no longer be used on this system until a new license is installed.

If you have chosen a subscription license, the daily license check will also automatically activate the renewed license, if available.
In the OPMONis Email notifications you can activate, that OPMONis automatically sends an Email to you in case of problems or information about your license. So, you will be informed automatically:

  • If your trial license is about to expire or has expired
  • If your subscription license is about to expire or has expired
  • If your subscription license was successfully renewed
  • If the license activated on your system is deactivated due to overuse
