A Storage System Professional license is required to receive the full spectrum of storage system data. Storage System Professional licenses must be purchased either with a SysInfo product license purchase or seperately. For a comparison of Base vs. Professional, please see
A demo license of Storage System Professional is built into the SysInfo product and is enabled automatically for 30 days - with or without a permanent SysInfo product license - after which time the license reverts to a Storage System Base level. You always need a valid demo or permanent SysInfo product license in order to use any edition of the Storage System feature.
