HI Tyler, will this app monitor the capacity licences on a per user consumption. If not is there anything that can be done using the log files? A client of mine has capacity licences but would like to tranfer users over to an analyser licence when they consume a set amount of time in a month. 

Thank you in advance.

Hi, thank you for sharing your nice app.

I have a question, is there a way to monitor the capacity licence consumption per QlikView session?

I have tried to create an app based on this app to check QlikView Analyzer Capacity licence consumption per user and per app.
It seems that your app measures the consumption blocks by counting rows in the events log which contains the message '*Analyzer Capacity*', but as far as I can see, there is only one row for each SessionID in the events log.  So, it is calculated that every session consumes only one block (6 minutes).

Is the consumption recorded in other logs? Or do I need to change the QlikView Server settings to record the consumption in the logs?

I have the same problem. Have you been able to move forward with this?

Hi, thanks for your reply.

I've managed the case about this problem to Qlik Support, however there is no definite answer.

The reason is that they can only answer about the case using the above License Monitor.qvf app, not for my QlikView app using the same logic.

I hope this can be of some help.
Please reply if you get any new information.

Enabling / configuring the correct path to monitor_apps_qlikview_logs causes the reload to fail when there is no capacity in place.


I've changed the drop table command in the tab "qlikview_logs" to (line 165)

IF NoOfRows('qlikview_Events')>0 THEN
Drop Table qlikview_Events; // No longer need this table

Also had to change the object to reflect last used QlikSense/QlikView and Overall in Sheet User Detail


QlikSense Last Used  (only changed the name of the master item dimension)

Dimension: User Access Last Used

QlikView Last Used

Measure: DATE(COALESCE(MAX({<[App Stream]={'QlikView'}>}[Access Date]), 'Never'))

Overall Last Used

Measure: DATE(COALESCE(RANGEMAX(MAX({<[App Stream]={'QlikView'}>}[Access Date]), MAX({<[User Access Last Used]-={'Never'}>}[User Access Last Used])), 'Never'))
