Speaker: John Burg(IBM Corporation)
  • zPCR Capacity Sizing Lab Part 1 Introduction and Overview (2.4 MB)
  • zPCR is a productivity tool designed to provide capacity sizing insights for IBM System z processors. It can help accurately estimate the capacity sizing impact from configuring System z processors. Capacity results are based on IBM’s LSPR data. zPCR is available as a free download available from IBM.  This session has been updated in 2012 to emphasize the Enterprise Data Files (EDF) option to utilize the recently recommended CPU MF Counters (SMF 113s) method to help select an LSPR workload for your study.

    This session provides an introduction to the zPCR capabilities to help estimate the impact of capacity sizing challenges, utilizing the latest version and Advanced Functions. This session is intended for someone new to capacity sizing/planning with no zPCR experience or for the experienced person who has never used zPCR. This session is a pre-req for Part 2.
