Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool support by ISV Products

The Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) is a no-charge IBM tool that reports required license capacity for sub-capacity eligible products that run on z/OS, z/TPF, or z/VSE. SCRT analyzes a month of data for IBM z Systems environments and produces a sub-capacity report. The report indicates the required license capacity (in MSUs) of each IBM sub-capacity eligible product running on z/OS (or z/OS.e), z/TPF, or z/VSE systems.

Starting with SCRT V24 R11, SCRT is enhanced to optionally support ISV products. This capability allows the ISVs customer to generate an SCRT report that reflects the peak rolling four-hour average (in MSUs) of the ISVs products in use. This capability is embedded in the SCRT tool that the customer executes no special SCRT deliverable is required. The generated ISV report includes all the standard SCRT report sections, and products for the ISV will be reported in the same way that IBM products are reported on by SCRT.

ISVs who want to exploit this functionality with their own products, must license the SCRT ISV documentation. The SCRT ISV documentation explains how to create a product library file. The product library file can then be transmitted by the ISV to all participating customers, who use it with the standard SCRT deliverable (along with the standard SCRT inputs) to generate the ISV report. The SCRT ISV Documentation license agreement is provided at no charge for qualified ISVs.

In order to receive the SCRT ISV documentation and additional information, the ISV must meet certain requirements which include the execution of a licensing agreement with IBM.
