Managing Foglight Licenses

Foglight allows you to access only those product features that are defined in your license file, and in some cases, during a specific time period. Your Foglight environment requires a license for the server and a license for each cartridge that is license-protected. Some Foglight cartridges are license-protected, while others do not require a license.

You can install any cartridges, regardless of whether they are listed in your Foglight license. Installing a license-protected cartridge without adding its license results in that cartridge being disabled by default. This describes the fglcmd commands that you can use to manage Foglight licenses. For more information about the licensing capabilities, see the Administration and Configuration Help.

import

The import command installs a Foglight license. Use it to install a Foglight license file whose name and location are specified by the argument.

For information on how to remove a license using the fglcmd interface, see remove .
