What is the difference between a (normal) heartbeat and an analytical heartbeat?

Normal heartbeats are an essential part of SLASCONE functionality, since they make sure that licensing parameters (features, limitations, number of devices etc.) are being regularly kept up to date.

Analytical heartbeats is an optional feature, providing an elegant way to collect client data, that do not necessarily affect the licensing process. Analytical heartbeats can be used to collect any kind of data such as temperature, CPU Utilization, session metrics etc.
