This topic covers Browser RUM licenses. For AppDynamics official license details, entitlements, and restrictions, see the following:

Licence Types

License TypeLicense EditionMetering UnitDescription
Browser RUM (SaaS)ProPageviews per year, per Agent

A Pageview is an instance of a base page, virtual page, or iFrame loaded by a Web browser. Repeated views of one page are counted as separate Pageviews.

  • AppDynamics counts a Pageview each time the JavaScript Agent for Browser RUM is executed on a base page. Only Pageviews of pages that are instrumented by the agent are counted as Pageviews consumed. For example, pages excluded from monitoring through configuration are not counted.
  • One iFrame is counted as one Pageview.
Browser RUM (on-prem)Lite

A Browser RUM Lite license includes the following features:

  • Geo Dashboard for the previous 24-hour period for up to 500 million Pageviews
  • Page/Iframe List for the last 24-hour period for up to 500 million Pageviews
  • Usage Stats for the last 24-hour period for up to 500 million Pageviews

Browser RUM Usage Period

The Browser RUM usage period is per year, even if you have a multi-year license. The meter resets every year based on the expiration of your license agreement. For example, if your license expires on May 15, 2020, your usage period resets every year starting May 15, 2021.

Optimize License Consumption for Browser RUM 

If the value of Pageviews is greater than Page Views Allocated and your license allows overages, you are incurring overage charges. If you need to stop incurring overage charges, you can disable Browser RUM to stop end-user monitoring and Pageviews from being charged after a delay of approximately one minute.
