About Metering Clients

A metering client is any network machine running Metering Client (metering.dll), which is provided with all Hummingbird Connectivity products. Metering clients send update information to a particular metering server, and inform the server when a Hummingbird Connectivity product is installed or in use on a workstation machine.

Update information, which consists of licensing and user information such as product name, product version, and the IP address of the network machine on which a product is installed, is retrieved from the client machine’s registry. By default, the metering update is triggered when a metering client starts.

Tip:  For more information on the relationship between metering server and metering clients, see the Hummingbird Metering Server ReadMe.
