No, LANDesk does not measure concurrent use. Remind that LANDesk does periodic inventory scans, not real-time.
thanks for your quick answer, but no any other way to collect this information? I mean process monitoring, query, or something else?

No, the realtime information you can get in LANDesk can't be used for queries and the 'static' inventory information is not up-to-date enough probably for you to use... You could make a query finding out who installed Autocad and, perhaps with Marxtar's Power State Manager, determine who is logged on/if the computer is active. Than put 1 and 1 together to find the autocad users. Still needs a bit of workarounds to make it work.
If you have a small number of devices, why not just write a script or power shell to check each of the remote devices for the running process and export it to a list for review? This probably would not be realistic if you have 10K devices you have to check against, but you could also use LANDesk to query which devices even has AutoCAD installed and reduce your numbers that way.
Update to this thread. Our State Notifier plug-in module now monitors process usage including concurrency. This can help to give you the kind of information you are looking for.
