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. 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.

The CPS Tools on this webpage are only authorized for IBM employees and Certified IBM Business Partners. IBM Customers only have access to zPCR, zBNA, and zSoftCap which are obtained using publicly available websites.
