Actual utilization of licenses

As the user base grows, a Web Intelligence instance may gradually grow out of the existing capacity of concurrent use licenses.
Users and admin may not feel the problem immediately, as session failure rate can be small, then growing until unbearable.

Purchasing more licenses can take time.
I am looking for a function in CMC - did not find it - will appreciate a tip if it exists - to show some kind of actual license utilization graph, showing how many of the concurrent use licenses were active in a period.

Does such tool exist somewhere in the CMC?

E.g. we have 20 concurrent session licenses, and i want to see the graph of last year and visualize the times a session was rejected, visualize dates when we went over some threshold of actual session count - to assist decision process for purchasing licenses to extend.

Any tips?

In CMC -> Settings, you will find the maximum session count. The maximum can be reset as often as you like.

This only provides a single number. However, both auditing and monitoring capture the historical record of session counts.
