Monthly license charge (MLC) software pricing

Monthly license charges apply to many IBM® software products, including z/OS®, Db2®, CICS®, IMS™, MQSeries®, z/TPF, z/VSE® and others. Pricing and terms and conditions for MLC products are based on the pricing metric you select. MLC pricing metrics can roughly be grouped into two categories: full capacity based pricing metrics and sub-capacity capable pricing metrics.
