This page lists the IBM z Systems programs in the z/VM operating system family which are eligible for z/VM Sub-Capacity Pricing. To be eligible for z/VM Sub-Capacity Pricing you must first implement and comply with all terms and conditions of z/VM Sub-Capacity Pricing.

Each sub-capacity eligible z/VM program will be licensed according to either (1) terms applying to the z/VM hypervisor and its features, or (2) z/VM-Based terms, as determined by IBM.

  • z/VM hypervisor and optional feature terms
    For z/VM and any of its optional features, the required license capacity is the calculated engine capacity utilized by z/VM, as reported by ILMT from data generated by the z/VM Hypervisor Proxy running in each z/VM LPAR. For more information about the z/VM Hypervisor Proxy see the Sub-Capacity for z/VM web page.
  • z/VM-Based program terms
    z/VM-Based terms apply to IBM programs running on the z/VM operating system. Under these terms, the required license capacity of each eligible program equals the license capacity of z/VM on the machine(s) where the z/VM-Based program executes.
