What is a heartbeat?

Heartbeat is the frequency with which the licensed product communicates with SLASCONE. After the initial product activation, heartbeats enable the collection of information for analytics (e.g., software version, operating systems) and the transmission of possibly updated licensing parameters to the client. Typical heartbeat examples:

  • Every x weeks or months
  • After every software update
  • Only once (during activation)
  • During every program start
