What does the REPORTLOG from the SolidNetWork License options file give me?

I'm looking for a way to track license usage to make sure we have enough network seats.  I orignally wrote a macro that goes through the debug log and tracks license in/out and counts usage.  But, there's a note in the top of the log:


Please Note:
This log is intended for debug purposes only. In order to capture accurate license usage data into an organized repository, please enable report logging. Use Flexera Software LLC's software license administration solution, FlexNet Manager, to readily gain visibility into license usage data and to create insightful reports on critical information like license availability and usage. FlexNet Manager can be fully automated to run these reports on
schedule and can be used to track license servers and usage across a heterogeneous network of servers including Windows NT, Linux and UNIX.

I enabled report logging, and it's just a jumbled mess of characters (not a simple text file).

Does this mean there's ANOTHER software I would need to purchase to read the log file?
