Detailed Description

The Disable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet disables one or more software metering rules in Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. If you disable a rule, it does not collect information from clients. You can use the Enable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet to enable a rule that you previously disabled.

Software metering monitors and collects software usage data from System Center 2012 Configuration Manager clients, such as when clients began using a particular software program and how long users have worked with that software. You can create software metering rules that specify which software to monitor.

You can specify rules that disable software metering rules by ID or by product name, or use the Get-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet. You can use the Remove-CMSoftwareMeteringRule to permanently delete a rule.

For more information about software metering in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, see Introduction to Software Metering in Configuration Manager (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=268432) on TechNet.
