Abstract: This is the Getting Started page for those interested in using IBM's Processor Capacity Reference (zPCR) to capacity plan for IBM z Systems processors. It includes links for accessing related educational materials and downloading the tool itself.

If the tabs of this notebook don't work for you, try this version of the document.

Note-1: If your currently installed zPCR version is older than C8.5, it MUST be uninstalled prior to installing zPCR C8.7f (package that includes Java).


    This is necessary to facilitate conversion to the new IBM Java V7 runtime environment that is required for zPCR.

Note-2: Should installation of zPCR C8.7f fail to complete, you should uninstall your current zPCR version, and then install the C8.7f package that includes Java.
