Core based licensing is a change from traditional licensing. Rather than limiting the number of users who can access the Qlik Sense site by a limit on tokens, core based licensing restricts user access by limiting the number of CPU cores which can be used by the Engine to deliver end user content.
With a core based license, there is no functional reason to use the License Monitor app since the users will not use tokens. Instead, consumption of apps can be gauged by reviewing the Session Overview
and Session Details
sheets on the Operations Monitor.Environments:
- Qlik Analytics Platform, 3.0 and higher
- Qlik Sense Enterprise, 3.0 and higher
The application of a core based license.
When applying a core based license, you will receive a message like so:
After applying the license, the administrator should review the Engine configuration to ensure that sufficient capacity has been assigned to the Engine(s) in the Qlik Sense site.
In this example, 256 cores are allocated to the license but the Central only has 8 available cores:
After adjusting the Cores to allocate
to 8, we then have 248 cores which can be allocated across RIM nodes, if applicable.
