When the Record usage events option is enabled, and a user of a managed computer starts or stops a monitored application, an event is generated. When a user tries to use an application whose monitoring policy denies its use, a denial event is generated. Every start event has a stop event or becomes a denial event. After the events are sent to the Configuration Management Database (CMDB), you can generate reports to view this data.

When you view a managed computer in the Resource Manager, you can view application metering start and stop events data by clicking View > Events, and then expanding Data Classes > Inventory > Application metering.
