# Sematext Enterprise Licensing

## Where do I put a new license file¶

The license file location is /opt/sematext/license.jar on any of your SUA servers.

License files are automatically loaded as soon as you copy them to said location.

All Sematext on-premises licenses are limited by their expiry date. As expiry date approaches (and passes), license holders and owner of default on-premises account will be notified by email.

After the license expires, you will be able to continue using applications only for a few more days, so contact Sematext early about the new license to avoid any service interruptions.

## How do SPM license limits work¶

SPM licenses have additional limit on concurrent number of "server-apps". This "server-apps" is a combination of SPM App token and server where SPM monitor client is installed. For example, if you have 4 servers, and on each of them you've installed 3 SPM App tokens, that is counted as 12 server-apps (regardless of whether those servers use same or different SPM App tokens).

If during the day your number of server-apps goes over the limit defined by license, you will be notified by email and by Notification displayed at the top of SPM UI. You will have until the end of the day (counted by UTC timezone) to reduce the number of server-apps below the license limit. If reduction doesn't happen until the end of the day, that day will be counted as "over the limit" incident.

You are allowed to have a maximum of 4 such incidents over the trailing 30 days window. Once you have 5 or more such incidents over the last 30 days (check is done each day at 02:00 AM UTC), read-access to data will be blocked. This means that performance metrics will continue to be collected by SPM, but until the number of "over the limit" incidents falls back below 5 or you get a fresh license with higher limits, you will be unable to view data in charts.

## How do Logsene license limits work¶

Logsene licenses have additional limit on the amount of log data per day. The limit is expressed in MB, GB, TB... per day, and is compared with the total amount of log data used by all your Logsene Apps combined.

If during the day your amount of data goes over the license limit, you will be notified by email and by Notification displayed at the top of Logsene UI. You will have time until the end of the day (counted by UTC timezone) to reduce the amount of logs below the limit (e.g. by deleting some data manually). If reduction doesn't happen until the end of the day, that day will be counted as "over the limit" incident.

You are allowed to have a maximum of 4 such incidents over the trailing 30 days window. Once you hit 5 or more such incidents over the last 30 days (check is done each day at 02:00 AM UTC), read-access to data will be blocked. This means that logs data will continue to be accepted by Logsene, but until the number of "over the limit" incidents falls back below 5 or you get a fresh license with higher limits, you will be unable to view data in charts.
