Starting with z/VSE 4.1 we provide sub-capacity pricing for z/VSE and selected VSE middleware products on z9 BC (not Model A01), z9 EC, z10 BC (not Model A01), z10 EC, z196 and zEC12.
You have the option to produce SCRT89 records, which report sub-capacity MSUs (Million Service Units), on your processor. z/VSE uses the Capacity Measurement Tool (CMT) to produce SCRT89 records of your z/VSE systems running in LPAR or in z/VM guests. CMT need to be started after IPL.
Sub-capacity pricing is based on the four-hour rolling average utilization of the z/VSE systems observed within a one month reporting period. The SCRT tool installed on z/VSE reads the SCRT89 records and creates an official report for the monthly submission to IBM.
