IBM’s Monthly License Charge (MLC) expenses are driven by the monthly peak 4HRA. Managing those peaks and having insights into the CPU consumption during those 4HRA intervals is critical to managing and reducing MLC costs.
IntelliMagic Vision provides visibility into peak Rolling 4 Hour Average data far beyond what is provided by IBM’s Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) to enable you to reduce MLC expense. View the following video for an example of that visibility.
Instant Visibility, Drilldowns, and Usage Data
IntelliMagic Vision provides visibility into peak and top 20 4 hour rolling average (4HRA) values by product by billing month for both CMP and CEC-based environments, with direct drilldowns into CPU consumption during those peak intervals. The integration here of Usage (SMF 89) and address space (SMF 30) data shows which address spaces are registering which products, and has several significant use cases.
