The Metered License Agent (MLA) has several command-line arguments that extend its functionality to cover various scenarios.
Scenario: Report usage for multiple supervisors
By default, the MLA will report data for the supervisor defined as qb_supervisor in the local qb.conf. But you can also specify a supervisor by passing a
--supervisor command argument to the MLA
Scenario: Change the reporting interval
The MLA will report data every 15 minutes by default, but you may change this if you wish by specifying the number of records to collect before sending with a
--records argument. Since the MLA collects records every minute, if you tell it to transmit every time it has collected 5 records, it will send data every 5 minutes.
Note that there's not much benefit to changing this value, the amount of data sent even for 100 records is minimal. But adjusting this value does affect the update interval for your "spend to date" value in the metered portal.
