Best practices for Utilization Tracking and Reporting

White Papers


Abstract

What are the Best Practices for the Utilization Tracking and Reporting Feature in the IBM XL C, XL C/C++, and XL Fortran Compilers?

Content

Utilization Tracking and Reporting is a feature in the XL family of compilers (introduced in XL C V11.1, XL C/C++ V11.1, and XL Fortran V13.1). The XL compilers for Linux little endian distributions do not support this feature.

This feature allows you to generate reports regarding compiler utilization within your organization.

These reports indicate which compiler products are being used, by which users, and on which machines.

They also tell you the specific times of day when the compiler was invoked and how much concurrent use of the compiler there was.

You can use this information to help you manage your license requirements and compliance, for both Concurrent User licenses as well as Authorized User licenses.
