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 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.
