If the Software Metering Client Agent is enabled at a site, or at any of its child sites, the Summarize Software Metering Monthly Usage Data task condenses detailed software metering usage data from multiple records into one general record. This record provides information about application start and stop times, user name, computer name, program name, version, and language. Data summarization helps compress the amount of data in the site database. Monthly software usage data is sent to the central site.
This task can be used with the Summarize Software Metering File Usage Data task to summarize software metering data and to conserve space in the Configuration Manager 2007 site database.
Defaults Summarizes messages older than one month; runs daily, between midnight and 5:00 A.M.
