Question:
Is it okay to disable the Software Metering/Software Usage agent (amswmagtw plugin) on endpoints?
Environment:
Client Automation (ITCM) -- any version
Answer:
Yes, it is fine to disable the amswmagtw plugin, without any adverse impact to the AM agent plugin.  Just don't expect future software usage monitoring tasks to work!

You can deliver a script to endpoints in the environment that runs the following two commands:
caf disable amswmagtw
caf stop amswmagtw
