Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool Download

In order to download the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool you will need to use the IBM Registration process which most customers have already used to create their personal IBM ID.

By selecting the appropriate "Download SCRT" link below a new browser window will open and take you directly to a sign-in screen entitled "z Systems Software Licensing Tool Downloads".

After you sign in you will be asked to verify that your personal information (such as email id) has not changed. Scroll down towards the bottom of the page, check the box indicating you agree to the standard license for SCRT, and click the "I confirm" link. You will then be taken to the SCRT download page where you can click the "Download now" button.

Note: If you would like to be informed about planned changes to SCRT, new versions of SCRT, and other news related to Sub-Capacity software pricing from IBM then you will need to subscribe to SCRT news updates using the Email Subscription function of IBM’s LMS website. No special authorization is required to use the Email Subscription function. Instructions for subscribing and managing your subscriptions are available on the web (PDF, 492KB).

Installing SCRT

Read the SCRT Users Guide (PDF, 4.84MB) to learn about installing the SCRT, collecting the correct SMF and SCRT89 records, creating the correct input datasets, running the SCRT, interpreting the Sub-Capacity Report or Multiplex Report, and submitting the reports to IBM.

Customers should read “Chapter 3. Using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool” if they will use any SCRT V23 releases lower than release 10. The “classic” SCRT releases lower than 10 will only generate Sub-Capacity Reports, not Multiplex Reports, and do not support Mobile Workload Pricing (MWP) or z Collocated Application Pricing (zCAP).

Customers should read “Appendix D. Introducing SCRT V23.10.0” if they will use any SCRT V23 releases 10 or higher. The Java SCRT releases 10 or higher will generate both Sub-Capacity Reports or Multiplex Reports, with full support of Mobile Workload Pricing (MWP) and z Collocated Application Pricing (zCAP).

There are three different SCRT deliverables from which to choose: two that run on a z/OS system and one that runs on a z/VSE system. Please download the deliverable that matches the operating system upon which you intend to run SCRT and which supports the reporting functions you require.

We strongly urge you to clear your browser cache before attempting to download the SCRT deliverable.
