Cloudguard License quota

Hello,

Question What happens when you exceed license quota available in your Cloudguard license pool?

Will we have some loss of functionality if we scale out and overuse our quota? (Yes, i know we should not let this happen)

 

R80.40 Documentation says:

"CloudGuard licenses are attached from the license pool to CloudGuard Gateway.

The distribution procedure is permissive. Gateways will be issued a license even when the pool no longer has licenses available."

 

Thank you

Hi,

As it says , your new Gateway will get a license even if you passed your quota.

In the license status information via "vsec_lic_cli" you will see that you are missing the amount of cores added on the new Gateway.

So there are no penalties or functionality reduction if you go negative? I am asking this from risk management perspective.
