License consumption split on Windows, Linux, DBs, etc in Turbonomic

It is good to know how many licenses we are spending on each category and will have better understanding of profitable utilization on them

    Turbonomic has enabled support for IBM License Service as of version 8.9.3 release ( to track license consumption. For more details, see:

    Initial support is only within the virtual machine image (OVA) deployments but is being expanded to include support for Kubernetes deployments too.

    I've received a similar request from a Japanese customer. Currently, we do not have a license consumption listing, especially for DB-related instances, and we are unable to correctly count PaaS-related license consumption. License counting is a very sensitive and important feature for our business clarity. Therefore, we hope to add this function in the near future
