Re: FW: Usage data/license etc.

Here's what we have been doing for ACS:

1. We ignore all the data for specific ip ranges, as we have decided not
   to collect this information.

2. That gives us one line of summary per journal per quarter.

3. We type those numbers into a spreadsheet. Takes only a few minutes each
   quarter. We decided not even to bother with copy and paste because most
   of the time is scrolling down the ip details to find the summary line.
   An example of our data is available. I would be glad to receive your
   data in exchange (don't send to the list).
