Determine your consumption of processor value units (PVU) for IBM full and sub-capacity software

Simplify your IBM Licensing

IBM® License Metric Tool is a free product that IBM makes available to IBM Passport Advantage® clients to help them determine the consumption of processor value units (PVU) for the IBM full and sub-capacity software they acquired. The tool helps clients assess if they are compliant with licensing requirements and it provides reports that are required for IBM compliance audits.

Every Passport Advantage® client is advised to use the tool to ensure that the calculated PVU totals are complete and accurately reflect the IBM software in the client’s infrastructure. It provides a great value as it helps to automate license management processes that would otherwise be very complex to manage manually.

Installation and using ILMT is a contractually mandatory requirement for IBM clients licensed for IBM sub-capacity (also called virtualization capacity) products.
For more information, see sub-capacity licensing terms.

Audit reports provide information pertaining to the processor value unit (PVU), resource value unit (RVU MAPC) per product under full and sub-capacity licensing terms for a specific period.

By using PVU-based, RVU-based, or CPU-based products, customers are obliged by a license contract to generate reports regularly (at least every three months) and store them for auditing purposes.
