Abstract: The zCP3000 VM Extract Utility (CP3KVMXT) reads CP Monitor data and generates an Enterprise Data File (EDF) of PR/SM, system image, and workload related measurements for input into zCP3000 and/or zPCR. A CP3KVMXT-created EDF can be can be used to model interactive VM workloads or workloads under guest operating systems such as Linux, and can be concurrently loaded with a CP3KEXTR-created z/OS EDF for the same data intervals.

Some capacity planning tools mentioned on this webpage are authorized for use by IBM employees and Certified IBM Business Partners. IBM Customers have access to the data extract tools (including CP3KVMXT), zPCR, zBNA, and zSoftCap, which they should obtain themselves from publicly available websites.

The zCP3000 VM Extract Utility (CP3KVMXT) reads CP Monitor data and generates an Enterprise Data File (EDF) of system and workload related measurements for input into zCP3000. It supports VM running as native or in a partition. It can be used to model interactive VM workloads or workloads under guest operating systems such as Linux.

Note: The CP3KVMXT executable downloads from the http://www.vm.ibm.com/download website, which posts changes a few days earlier than Techdocs. It is possible that the Techdocs web page changes and user's guide will lag behind the  CP3KVMXT executable.
