Network monitoring licensing is purely based on the number of interfaces that are monitored. It is mandatory to have at least one active interface in order to monitor a device. While ten performance counters per device can be monitored for free, every additional ten is counted as one interface.

Premium support includes email, community, chat and phone.

Every webpage that is loaded in the browser is considered as a page view, irrespective of the number of resources that are loaded behind. For example, for a single page to load, there are various resource calls for images, css, etc, which are not counted in page views. Only the webpage that the user visits is counted as page views.
