How Does IBM Implement WLC?

  • Initially IBM Tried to Develop the “IBM License Manager” Which Would be Integrated into z/OS

    • Extremely Late

    • Eventually, Dropped After 15 Month Delay

      • Tivoli is working on a new zSeries License Manager

  • The Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) Was Developed in the Interim

    • SCRT IS REQUIRED For WLC

    • Processes SMF70 data for Defined Capacity limits and 4-Hour Rolling Averages

    • Processes SMF89 to Determine Where Many Software Products Execute (Not All, Some Important Exceptions)

    • You Edit the Output in a Spreadsheet

      • Email to IBM or Recently Upload in a Web Application

  • The IBM Machines “Call-Home” Periodically for Verification
