Stores usage information of NI VLM-controlled software, along with client information. For more information, refer to Sending a VLA Log to NI.

NI VLM records into the VLA Log all instances of policy and permissions changes, including overdrafts. You send the VLA Log to National Instruments when your current agreement is expiring, when your User or Computer list has changed, when you have added overdraft permissions under the pay-as-you-go option, or when you plan to move NI VLM to another computer.

National Instruments then uses the information in the VLA Log to determine how much, if anything, is owed on the extra licenses and maintenance for the coming agreement period and returns to you a new agreement license file based on whether you renewed the agreement.

The VLA Log includes the following items:

  • Custom field data for users and computers
  • The date permissions were added and removed from each User or Computer
  • The date a client was disconnected or a home license was created
  • The date a disconnected client was reconnected
  • Check-in and check-out events
  • The contents of each agreement license file
  • The overdraft percentage, if overdraft is enabled
  • Whether pay-as-you-go is enabled
  • The administrator information
