License Metrics

 

Node:

A node is a Tripwire Enterprise object that represents a monitored system (database, directory server, file server or network device) on a network.

  • Directory server node
    Represents a physical server or virtual machine that hosts a centrally managed information store that enables users to search for data saved in a variety of locations on a network
  • File server node
    Represents a physical server or virtual machine that hosts a file system (software used to organize and store files)
  • Network device node
    Represents a physical router, switch, firewall, load balancer or UNIX system

 

Instance:

An instance is a physical or virtual object or occurrence. For example:

  • An instance for TE for VMware ESX is measured per ESX Hypervisor Manager
  • A database instance means one database
  • A Microsoft Exchange instance means the installation of Microsoft Exchange on one operating system
  • A virtual appliance instance means the installation of the virtual appliance on a single operating system instance

 

IP:

An IP is an internet protocol address. A “Per IP” license means a license based on the number of unique IP addresses scanned per day.

For IP360, an IP license will be used each time the customer scans a specific and active IP for a vulnerability and as long as the customer has access to those results on the VnE Manager. Customers do not consume a license for scanning empty IP space or for discovery scans that do not include vulnerability scanning. License calculation, which is recalculated daily, is determined by counting all the records currently in the persistent host table that were at any time scanned for vulnerabilities and whose networks are not deleted, and then remove any duplicate IP addresses.

 

GB:

A Gigabyte (GB) is a unit of digital information equal to one billion bytes. Tripwire products licensed per GB are based on the amount of data indexed on a daily basis. The order will state the maximum daily indexing volume allowed for a Customer’s license in Gigabytes. Daily indexing volume is measured from midnight to midnight.

For example, a Tripwire Connect license for up to 20 GB allows a Customer to index 0 to 20 GB of data per day.

 

Data Source:

A data source is a Tripwire Enterprise (TE) console instance from which a Connect instance installed on a different TE console instance is aggregating data.

 

INDUSTRIAL DEVICE:

An industrial device is a ruggedized and/or specialized networked component (on a separate network from IT/business networks and systems) that facilitates or controls the automation of an industrial process. Examples of industrial devices are data acquisition controllers, human-machine interfaces (HMIs), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), relays, remote terminal units (RTUs), routers, switches and terminal servers. Industrial devices do not include file, directory or database servers.

 

Tripwire Malware Detection Service:

Tripwire Malware Detection Service is offered on an annual subscription basis per file server node (including file servers, desktops, POS servers, POS end points), and must be purchased for all of the customer’s currently-supported Tripwire Enterprise file server nodes.

 

License Restrictions

For all Tripwire Apps other than Console Orchestrator:

A Tripwire App license includes use on up to two licensed non-production consoles for the purpose of test and disaster recovery.

 

For Console Orchestrator:

A Console Orchestrator App license includes use in one inactive/standby disaster environment.

 

For all Asset Discovery Products:

Tripwire Asset Discovery Products are for use for port scanning (full or partial port ranges) for the limited purpose of asset discovery, including the use of Tripwire Whitelist Profiler for reporting on listening ports.

 

For Tripwire Connect:

Customer’s usage of the Tripwire Connect license is limited to the maximum daily indexing volume in Gigabytes as stated on the order. License Violations occur when a Customer exceeds the maximum daily indexing volume allowed for its license in a 24 hour period. After five license violations in any rolling 30 day period, Customer data will continue to be indexed, however certain functions such as search, scheduled reports and alerts, will be unavailable (“Reset Event”). Customer must contact Tripwire support when a Reset Event occurs to request a manual reset. Customer is allowed a maximum of three manual resets during any rolling 90 day period. Tripwire is not obligated to provide a fourth reset and Customer must either reduce its indexing volume or increase the size of its license. Tripwire recommends that Customer monitor license usage and purchase a license sufficient to support its intended usage, in order to avoid License Violations and Reset Events.

 

Non- Production License Restrictions:

Software licenses identified as "Non-Production" on an order are designated as available for use in a non-production environment only (“Non-Production Licenses”), and any pricing included on the applicable order reflects this license restriction. Use of these Non-Production Licenses in a capacity other than in the customer's development, test or staging environments is prohibited. Non-Production Licenses can only be run on a Tripwire Enterprise Console that is also licensed under Non-Production License.

 

Disaster Recovery License Restrictions:

Software licenses identified as “Disaster Recovery” on an order are designated as available for use in test and disaster recovery environments only, and the pricing included on the applicable order reflects this license restriction.

Any pricing included on the applicable order reflects this license restriction. Use of these licenses in a capacity other than in a single physical retail store location is prohibited.

 

Academic Institution License Restrictions:

All Tripwire Academic Institution Licenses are licensed for use per accredited academic institution based the enrollment tier for the number of total enrolled students at the academic institution at the time of purchase. Any pricing included on the applicable order reflects this license restriction.
