License usage limit approaching for Juniper




Some licenses are limited to a certain number of elements (such as maximum users). If any of the licenses is nearing its limit, an alert will be issued.

Remediation Steps

Consider purchasing additional licenses.

How does this work?

This script logs into the Juniper JUNOS-based device using SSH and retrieves the output of the "show system license" command. The output includes the device's installed licenses.

Why is this important?

Tracking the utilization of licenses is important to ensure smooth operation of critical functions. If a license is limited by count (such as by number of users) and the limit is reached, service disruption may follow.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

The Juniper device can be set to send an SNMP trap when a license nears expiration (or expires), or is nearing its capacity.
