    Usage of QlikView_apps

    Friedrich Hofmann


      Hi,

       

      I have the requirement of measuring how intensively (and to what use - how to measure that?) the QlikView_apps we have developed for different teams are being used.

      The best approach I have been able to come up with yet is to use one of the power_tools to measure, day by day, which document_CALs (I have assigned one document_CAL to every team_account, for that team's QlikView_app) are used.

      Isn't there a power_tool available to manage CAL_usage? I think so. Is there also some How-to or manual?

      (I have tried to set up the Governance_Dashboard, but since I'm not familiar with server environments and server_administration, I didn't quite manage that - might also be because I only have access to the most important logs - they are placed on a Share I can access, so I cannot actually access the Server.

      Thanks a lot!

       

      Best regards,

          HI,

           

          If you turn on audit logging this would help in finding the answer. You would still need to use the Governance_Dashboard or System monitor to find the answer.

              Hi Bill,

               

              many thanks! Audit_logging is kind of tricky, I think it does impact server_performance quite a bit, doesn't it?

              Well, I will have to look for some encompassing How-to or so for general admin purposes anyway.

              Thanks a lot!

              Best regards,

                  Hi Bill,

                   

                  I'm back once again with this question:

                  Like I said, Audit_logging is somewhat tricky insofar as it impacts performance on the server and we'll have to discuss that with IT.

                  As a first step, I'd like to use what is available via the QMC - the usage of the CALs, that is. There is some Power_Tool for this, I think?

                  That will lead to various imprecisions since we probably won't be able to capture usage of print_out_reports, which are used by some teams.

                  However, it should be better than nothing.

                  Can you give me any hints here?

                  Thanks a lot!

                  Best regards,
