What data is sent with the metered license?

Hi,

i have some questions about the metered licensing:
• If the (aspose) dlls are used by different customers, is the volume consumption of each customer retrievable? Is this possible somehow?
• Exactly what data is sent to Aspose from the Metered dll? Which ports must be open on the firewall?

kind regards
Peter

The metered license will only send the usage when any of these conditions is met:

• After the metered API is started and the license is successfully applied, the first charged API call will trigger a report of the usage to Aspose.
• The time span between the last sending time and this time is bigger than 12 hours.
• The time span between the last sending time and this time is bigger than 5 seconds, and the cached consumption data is bigger than 100MB or 30 credits.

Furthermore, the communication is done through a secure SSL connection and it needs to access the port 443 on our server. You can also check Metered Licensing FAQ on our website in case you need further information in this regard.

Hi
Thanks for the answer.
What are credits?
Which action costs how many credits?
Unfortunately, there is nothing to find in the FAQ about credits.

kind regards

Credits are the new price plan which is not yet launched by Aspose. Since it is not yet launched, you can disregard it and consider the official per MB plan only. We will be updating our FAQ section once credits plan is launched.
