Description Erik Forsberg cendio 2005-02-22 11:41:14 CET
Currently, there is support for displaying the active number of users over time
as well as the number of allowed users over time in tladm.

There should be more support for displaying what kinds of licenses are
available, when they expire etc. The webmin module should be able to recognize
all types of licenses generated by the license server at release time, even if
VSM doesn't use them. I.e., even if VSM can't enforce that the number of
safelinc sessions are below the number of safelinc licenses available, the
webmin module should at least display that there are safelinc licenses available.
Comment 1 Peter Åstrand cendio 2005-05-03 10:32:44 CEST
One option could be to extend tl-show-licenses. 
Comment 2 Erik Forsberg cendio 2006-02-07 09:05:12 CET
ulstats.cgi currently generates graphs that have '1k, 2k, 3k' on the y-axis if
the system has a large number of users. We've seen at least one instance of
confusion because of this, so it would probably be better to let the labels be
1000, 2000, 3000. 

This can be accomplished by adding '--units-exponent 0' to the rrdtool
commandline used to create the graph. 

Regarding comment #1, I think we should display the information in ulstats -
it's much easier to find for the unexperienced user, and the amount of work
needed is about the same.
Comment 4 Erik Forsberg cendio 2007-06-27 16:39:12 CEST
We're also seeing some confusion because of the way the graph works - when you have a CSLA on for example 2000 pupils, and therefore 2000 user licenses, it's hard to see small amounts of concurrent users.

Issue5280 is one example.
Comment 6 Pierre Ossman cendio 2018-11-27 13:09:10 CET
Closing this as we don't see a need for any more details with how things work today.
