The Allegro Design Workbench (ADW) 16.5 has the capability of providing usage metrics.By enabling analysis of the software environment, this enhances software serviceability and reduces IT costs. The ADW Server metrics are based on the ADW Server technology and enables metrics data to be collected from all sites and all clients.Read on for more details …
As this is a new ADW capability offered in the 16.5 release, there are a limited number of initial metrics collected, namely version numbers of ADW and SPB tools and environment information. There are plans to extend metrics capability to design and process metrics.How it works
The designer launches the ADW Flow ManagerThe Flow Manager connects to the ADW metrics serverThe Flow Manager sends data to server:
The ADW metric server displays some of these metrics. There is no need to have a metrics server for each replicated server.
The ADW Configuration Manager dashboard displays the collected metrics:
Detailed information for a single client:
The extended information is controlled by the $ADW_CONF_ROOT\adw_dashboard.ini file. This controls what command is executed:
Please share how you're using this new capability.

Thanks Soundman99 for your suggestion. I will open a new Case and forward your enhancement request to our R&D team.
This is great, but what I really would want to see is how long a user has each tool open, so that you can see license usage. ADW already has checks for at least ADW version, and won't let you open if the client version doesn't match the server. I have to monitor the FlexLM server to see how many licenses of each product we have checked out at a time, it would be nice to see this in the ADW server metrics.
