Preparing to use the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool

Monthly sub-capacity reports from the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool, or SCRT, are required for sub-capacity pricing. In addition, the sub-capacity reports that the tool produces can be a useful to you as cost management tools.

You may also wish to download and run SCRT as a planning tool before you sign up for sub-capacity pricing. You can do this at any time; IBM will not bill you according to sub-capacity pricing until you have signed the appropriate contract (see Contracts for sub-capacity pricing) and submitted your sub-capacity report.

The tasks related to using SCRT are generally performed by the z/OS® architect.
