PlateSpin® Recon™ 3.6 Novell® Software License Agreement PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. BY INSTALLING, DOWNLOADING OR OTHERWISE USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS, DO NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL OR USE THE SOFTWARE AND, IF APPLICABLE, RETURN THE ENTIRE UNUSED PACKAGE TO THE RESELLER WITH YOUR RECEIPT FOR A REFUND. THE SOFTWARE MAY NOT BE SOLD, TRANSFERRED, OR FURTHER DISTRIBUTED EXCEPT AS AUTHORIZED BY NOVELL. This Novell Software License Agreement (“Agreement”) is a legal agreement between You (an entity or a person) and Novell, Inc. (“Novell”). The Software identified in the title of this Agreement, any media and accompanying documentation (collectively the “Software”) is protected by the copyright laws and treaties of the United States (“U.S.”) and other countries and is subject to the terms of this Agreement. If the Software is an update or support release, then You must have validly licensed the version and quantity of the Software being updated or supported in order to install or use the update or support release. If the update or support release is not accompanied by a license agreement, then this Agreement governs Your use of the update or support release. The Software may include or be bundled with other software programs licensed under different terms and/or licensed by a licensor other than Novell. Use of any software programs accompanied by a separate license agreement is governed by that separate license agreement. Any third party software that may be provided with the Software is included for use at Your option. DEFINITIONS “Import” means any operation performed to extract Performance Monitoring Data of computer systems from third party data stores, apply any necessary transformation of the extracted data and load this data into the PlateSpin Recon data store. “Inventory” means to collect static data, one or more times, for a Server. “Operating System” means software that controls the operation of a computer and directs the processing of programs (as by assigning storage space in memory and controlling input and output functions). An Operating System may be installed either directly on a computer system or within a virtual machine. For example, a virtual machine server that hosts four virtual machines represents five Operating Systems. “Performance Monitoring Data” means data describing the characteristics of the Workload. Examples of this data include metrics describing CPU, memory, disk, network availability, allocation and usage. “Software License Key” means the mechanism that enables You to install and use the Software subject to the restrictions set out in this Agreement and may be a printable digital key, a non-printable file or any other mechanism used by Novell for license activation purposes. “Workload” means a unit of software that may (a) be installed and can run on a physical computer that has no operating system software loaded onto it, or (b) be installed and can run in a specialized operating environment, typically understood as a virtual operating environment, that allows the Operating System to run as an independent computer in the presence of other such independent computers, known as virtual machines. This includes any encapsulated form of such unit of software. A Workload contains the Operating System files necessary that allows it to “boot up” a standard computer and run the associated applications and data. “Virtual Host CPU” means a physical CPU installed on a physical server running a hypervisor. “Core” means a processor with its own cache that can execute instructions independently of other processors. A CPU may consist of one or more Cores. A server may consist of one or more CPUs, each with one or more Cores. The total number of Cores in a server is equal to the number of CPUs multiplied by the number of Cores per CPU. LICENSED USE Commercial Software. Provided You comply with all terms and conditions of this Agreement, Novell grants You a non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without the right to sublicense, to use the Software in accordance with the Software License Key associated with the Software and in accordance with the terms specified in this Agreement. The Software License Key enables You to install and use the Software subject to the restrictions set forth below. The Software License Key may be a printable digital key, a non-printable file, or any other mechanism used by Novell for license activation purposes. You recognize that, prior to receipt of complete payment, Novell may, at its sole discretion, issue Software License Keys that will disable the Software after the final payment due date. In this event, You agree to request in writing the final Software License Key from Novell or its authorized agents along with final payment. The Software facilitates the distribution of software and thereby allows additional Operating Systems and Applications ("Guest Operating Systems and Applications") to run on a computer system. You must have a valid licensed copy of each Guest Operating System and Application for such use. You agree to indemnify and hold Novell harmless against any damages, costs (including legal fees and costs) or other liability arising from claims by any other party resulting from Your lack of such licenses. Novell shall have the right to participate at its expense in any such dispute. Your use of the Software is restricted by the Software License Key in the manner set out in this Section. You agree that You will not attempt to “hack”, “crack” or otherwise override the Software License Key. The following licenses apply to Your use of the Software depending on the version of the Software and the type of product licenses You have purchased. Project Edition If You have acquired licenses to PlateSpin Recon Project Edition, then Your use of the Software is restricted in the following manner: (1) You are permitted to monitor servers only for the number of days specified by the Software License Key; (2) You are permitted to Inventory and monitor only the type of servers licensed to You and specified in the Software License Key; and (3) You shall not reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise manipulate the Software to enable Inventory or monitoring functions for which You are not expressly licensed. Enterprise Edition If You have acquired licenses to PlateSpin Recon Enterprise Edition, then Your use of the Software is restricted in the following manner: (1) You are permitted to monitor servers only for the number of Cores specified by the Software License Key; (2) You are permitted to Inventory and monitor only the type of Workloads licensed to You and specified in the Software License Key; and (3) You shall not reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise manipulate the Software to enable Inventory or monitoring functions for which You are not expressly licensed. Inventory Edition If You have acquired licenses to PlateSpin Recon Inventory Edition, then Your use of the Software is restricted in the following manner: (1) You are permitted to Inventory only the type of Workloads licensed to You and specified in the Software License Key; and (2) You shall not reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise manipulate the Software to enable Inventory or monitoring functions for which You are not expressly licensed. Connector License If You are using one of the PlateSpin Recon Connectors, including but not limited to MOM, CSV or HPOV Connectors, You are permitted to Inventory and Import Performance Monitoring Data of servers which are on the PlateSpin Recon supported platforms from the respective data stores. You may Import connector-hours as specified in Your Software License Key. Connector-hours are defined as the hours of server monitoring data that was Imported from the Connector into PlateSpin Recon that would have otherwise been monitored by PlateSpin Recon for the same period of time without using the Connector option. For example, if You Import data for 50 servers with 60 days of monitoring data, the licensing requirement would be 50 x 60 x 24 = 72,000 connectorhours. Evaluation Software. If the Software is an evaluation version or is provided to You for evaluation purposes, then Your license to use the Software is limited solely to internal evaluation purposes and in accordance with the terms of the evaluation offering under which You received the Software and expires 90 days from installation (or such other period as may be indicated within the Software). Upon expiration of the evaluation period, You must discontinue use of the Software, return to an original state any actions performed by the Software, and delete the Software entirely from Your system. The Software may contain an automatic disabling mechanism that prevents its use after a certain period of time, so You should back up Your system and take other measures to prevent any loss of files or data.
