The software metering views contain information such as the software metering rules that are created in the Configuration Manager hierarchy, which files to meter, the products in which the files belong, the users that have used the metered files, and so on. Several of the status and status summarizer views also provide information about file usage. Most often, the software metering views can be joined to other views by using the FileID and ResourceID columns.

The following sections provide detailed information about software metering views and software metering status views.
