If the Software Metering Client Agent is enabled at a site, or at any of its child sites, the Summarize Software Metering File Usage Data task summarizes software metering file usage data from multiple records into one general record. This record provides summarized information about the application name, version, language, number of concurrent users, and hourly usage over a specified length of time. Data summarization helps compress the amount of data stored in the Configuration Manager 2007 site database.

This task can be used with the Summarize Software Metering Monthly Usage Data task to summarize software metering data, and to conserve space in the Configuration Manager 2007 site database.

Defaults   Runs daily, between midnight and 5:00 A.M.
