oraclient8.dll & Software Metering
Hi I have setup a software metering rule for Oracle, that is usage of oraclient8.dll. Firstly is it possible to do metering of dlls ? I have had this rule setup for a while and so far it has returned no data. If I base a collection on SoftwareFile.FileName like "oraclient8.dll" I can see lots of entries so I know this file exists, I guess I not sure if I am misunderstanding something here.

Hi, You use software metering to monitor software program usage. Specifically, you monitor executable programs. An executable program is a compiled program that has been translated into computer code in a format that can be loaded into memory and run by the computer's processor. You specify the monitored program by the name of its executable program. Most executable programs have .exe or .com file name extension. However, SMS can monitor executable programs with other file name extensions or file names that have been renamed.

No, you cannot monitor .dlls. Think of it that way: you can monitor everything that will show up in task manager (processes node).
