GFI EventsManager licensing

GFI EventsManager is licensed by the node. All devices which generate log data or make the scope of IT monitoring are considered to be a node.

The "Active Monitoring" license has a separate, lower price than the "Complete" license, and offers active monitoring for servers, workstations and network devices, together with log data management and analysis for Windows workstations.

The "Complete" license offers the entire product functionality (adds log data management and analysis for servers and network devices).

Various combinations of the two licenses can be purchased with the same license key (i.e. 5 nodes "Complete" and 20 nodes "Active Monitoring) which makes it more affordable to get only the functionality you are interested in, for the assets you need to be covered.
