Capacity Provisioning is designed to simplify the management of temporary capacity. The scope of z/OS® Capacity Provisioning is to address capacity requirements for relatively short term workload fluctuations for which On/Off Capacity on Demand is applicable. It is not a replacement for the Capacity Management process.
Capacity Provisioning can help you to manage processor capacity on IBM® System z10® or zEnterprise™ when a suitable On/Off Capacity on Demand record is available. Capacity provisioning allows you to change the activation level of that On/Off CoD record with respect to general purpose capacity, and the number of zAAP or zIIP processors.
The Capacity Provisioning task in z/OSMF V1R13 provides a browser-based user interface for working with the Capacity Provisioning Manager on a z/OS system. With the Capacity Provisioning task, you can perform the following functions:
- Manage connections to a Provisioning Manager and use them to transfer provisioning policies and domain configurations to the Provisioning Manager, or to query various status reports.
- View the status of a Provisioning Manager by displaying reports about the domain status, the active configuration and the active policy.
With the installation of the small programming enhancement (SPE) provided through APAR PM74519, the z/OSMF Capacity Provisioning task was enhanced to allow you to also perform the following functions:
- Manage, create, modify, and delete provisioning policies and domain configurations from a central shared repository.
- Import and export domain configurations and policies.
- Install and activate policies and domain configurations for the domain the Provisioning Manager controls.
With these new functions, z/OSMF Capacity Provisioning has now been extended to support all the functions available in the Microsoft Windows-based Capacity Provisioning Control Center (CPCC).
