Data Allowance

The following Targets use a data allowance license:

  • IBM Informix databases
  • Teradata databases
  • Tibero databases
  • Hadoop clusters
  • SharePoint Server
  • SharePoint Online

Data allowance Targets are licensed by volume of data scanned per instance of ER2. This is a data allowance that is applied to all data allowance Target for that instance of ER2. The amount of data allowance consumed is the total size of all scanned data allowance Target locations.

Adding data allowance Targets does not count towards the data allowance.

ER2 calculates the amount of data scanned after the scan is complete. If the volume of data scanned exceeds the data allowance available, the scan will still be allowed to complete. But ER2 will not display scan results and reports for data allowance Targets and server Targets that contain data allowance Target locations. Update the ER2 license with sufficient data allowance to view results and continue scanning data allowance Targets.
