You use several predefined application metering policies if you want to meter common applications such as Microsoft Office products. You can enable the predefined policies that you want to use as they are. If you want to configure predefined policies to meet your needs, Symantec recommends that you clone an original predefined policy and then configure the copy.
For application metering policies to work, you must have the Symantec Management Agent, the Inventory Plug-in, and the Application Metering Plug-in installed on target computers.
This task is a step in the process for metering and denying applications.
