We get often the question how Xian Licensing works. Let us explain it a bit. It is actually quite simple.
For SNMP monitoring
Basic SNMP License: This one gives you the license to monitor one standard device. Standard device are all Generic Devices and HP Printers
Standard SNMP license: This one gives you the license to monitor one standard device. Standard device are all Cisco Switches except Nexus, Cisco Routers, Cisco ASA, Cisco Wireless, HP Procurve Switches,
Advanced SNMP license: This one gives you the license to monitor an advanced device. Advanced devices are Cisco Nexus and F5 Big IP
Netflow monitoring licensing.
For Netflow monitoring you need local IP licenses. This is basically the number of local IP addresses that will be monitored by Xian NM Flow Monitoring. So if your Netflow monitoring is limited to a certain segment then you only need the number licenses that represents the number of local IP addresses in that segment.
Topology Discovery License
If you also want Xian NM to Discover the relations between network devices and Windows Servers you can optionally obtain a topology license.
