Disabling the collection of software usage

Information about software usage is collected if you enabled the default scan configuration or manually activated the Application Usage Statistics analysis and ran the relevant scan. If you are in the initial deployment phase, or if you do not need information about software usage, you can disable the collection of this information to improve BigFix Inventory performance and shorten the import time.


  1. Log in to the BigFix console.
  2. In the navigation tree, click Sites > External Sites > BigFix Inventory v10 > Fixlets and Tasks.
  3. In the upper right pane, select Disable Application Usage Statistics, and then in the lower pane, click Take Action.
  4. Select computers from which you no longer want to collect information about software usage, and click OK.
