The Classic version of SCRT is no longer supported now that SCRT V25 is available. SCRT V25 only has Java releases, all customers must use SCRT V25 starting with the November 2017 submission period. Please see “Differences in Missing Data messages between SCRT Classic and SCRT V25 Sub-Capacity Reports” (PDF, 233KB) for an explanation of the missing data messages which now appear in all Sub-Capacity Reports.

Installing SCRT

Read the SCRT Users Guide (PDF, 5.9 MB) 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 review “Chapter 2. Part 2. Using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool” to determine which chapter of the SCRT Users Guide they should read depending upon which version of SCRT they will use. The “classic” SCRT releases lower than 10 will only generate Sub-Capacity Reports. The Java releases 10 or higher will generate both Sub-Capacity Reports and Multiplex Reports.

There are five different SCRT deliverables from which to choose: two that run on a z/OS system, one that runs on a z/VSE system, one that runs on Linux (both Linux for workstations as well as Linux for z Systems), and one that runs on Windows. Please download the deliverable that supports the operating system(s) you need to report upon and which supports the reporting functions you require.

For the list of currently available SCRT release levels, as well as the minimum required version for submission of SCRT Reports, please see the IBM Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) Current Levels (PDF, 393 KB) document. This document also includes the features and updates listed by version and release.

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