Tools from the following vendors have been verified to provide some data and information to supplement a LMS engagement. The scope of the verification process only covers the data collection related to the installation and usage of specific Oracle products, namely Oracle Database and the associated Options. The verification does not include any other Oracle products or the overall capabilities of the vendor's solution. LMS will accept data from any of these tools as an alternative to installing some LMS measurement tools. Please note that the installation and usage of a tool from a verified vendor does not replace an Oracle License Audit or True Up engagement or revoke Oracle's contractual right to perform a License Audit or True Up. The usage data gathered from these tools will still need to be analyzed by the LMS organization to assess license needs and provide the customers with a compliance statement.
