If you see 120 PVU in an ILMT report you probably have an issue that needs attention immediately before it becomes a significant license cost.
120 PVU is the default PVU count ILMT gives a processor. When there’s a problem with the data scanned for a server or virtual machine ILMT will revert to it’s default which is significantly higher that the more usual 70 PVU.
It will look like you need 70% more licenses for than you actually do. If the problem is in the scan of a cluster all of the VMs in the cluster will appear to require far more licenses that they actually do. This multiplies the problem potentially turning it into a million dollar risk.
The most common cause of this error is a VM Manager connection failing. This should be evident from the ILMT dashboard. Immediately raise a high priority ticket with the team managing ILMT. Once the technical issue is resolved you will also need to update ILMT reporting to account for the perceived spike in license demand.
