Certification and support for ITM V6.3 agents are already available since some months, as also documented by this technote
Anyway, a lot of ITM installations around the world are still running with pre-6.3 ITM agents, or anyway with agents based on pre 6.3 infrastructure.
At the same time, many server farms are moving to the new IBM Power 8 systems.
When moving AIX LPAR on a new hardware, most often it is requested to maintain unchanged the applications running on the LPAR to avoid additional effort.
For this reason, considering the number of customers that are running ITM V6.2.x (mainly 6.2.3), ITM Agent development decided to schedule and run certification test for a set of ITM Agents older than V6.3.
Certification test have been completed on March 2015.
You can find details about the certified agents in the following technotes:
