How Licenses are Tracked

When a patch deployment is performed, Shavlik Protect records the machine name in the database if it does not already exist.  From there, the number of remaining seats available for deployment is reduced by one for each target. If you elect to use Shavlik Protect Agent, each agent machine is allocated a license and also counts against the total number of license seats available. If the same machine is managed in both an agentless and agent-based manner, that machine is counted only once. Similarly, when scanning virtual machines, a machine is counted only once even if it is scanned both in online (powered on) mode and offline (powered off) mode.

You can easily find out how many license seats have been used by choosing Help > About Shavlik Protect. For example:

Note: Threat management (antivirus & antispyware), power management (including Wake-on-LAN), and ITScripts are separately licensable add-ons to Shavlik Protect.
