There are couple of ways to do it...

1. While you start your licence manager, pipe the output or tee the
output to a file and it records all the details of usage.

2. Wrap your eda tool executable with a wrapper script that customizes
your data collection. You can add time, date, system fired with,
system fired on, memory usage before firing the job, swap usage etc.

3. You can put a deamon that always polls for the eda tool process and
whenever finds one, records data on a file.
