How do you know the number of BMC Patrol licenses are deployed?

BMC Patrol is licensed by number of CPUs.

BMC Patrol product will be installed in a Server that it will have several CPUs.

Them we will have BMC Atrium CMDB relationship:

-
BMC Patrol product = BMC_PRODUCT

-
This Product will be installed in a Server = BMC_ComputerSystem

-
This Server will have several CPUs = BMC_PROCESSOR


Example:

-
Server A with BMC Patrol installed and 2 CPUs

-
Server B with BMC Patrol installed and 1 CPU


Total of BMC Patrol licenses deployed = 3
