MSL Tape Library & cleaning

Hello I have MSL4048 tape library. Auto cleaning is enable. 
Is it possible to see how many times library use cleaning cartridge? I ask because in cartridge I read: it can used only 20 times. (or some thing like this) How I will know when it is time to replace cleaning cartridge?

It's been a while, but I think you should be able to see how many times a tape drive have been cleaned with the help of LTT:

I think library itself should know how many times it use cleaning cartridge ...

It is not so useful to periodicaly run custome software & check ...
