z Systems LSPR ITR ratios for IBM processors where each model is configured with multiple z/OS images based on an average LPAR profile of client systems

LSPR capacity data in the form of ITR ratios for IBM processors where each model is configured with multiple z/OS V2R1 images based on an average LPAR profile of client systems. All capacity numbers are relative to the IBM 2094-701 running multi-image z/OS image. Software levels used for this table are z/OS V2.1, DB2 V11, CICS V5.1, IMS V13, WAS V8.5.5.1, Java 7 SR9 and COBOL V5.1. Information presented in this table is current as of February 2016.

Note: Please contact your IBM marketing representative to ensure that you are using the most current data. Proper use of this data requires an understanding of the LSPR measurement methodology.

* Low, Average, High workloads describe their Relative Nest Intensity (RNI) category - see workload description for more information.

** PCI stands for Processor Capacity Index. The PCI values were calculated by multiplying the LSPR Average column by a common scaling factor associated with a particular LSPR table. Note the values appearing here were generated using zPCR so the full precision of each ITRR ratio is represented.

*** MSUs are used for software pricing only; they are not a capacity metric.

**** MSUps are used for software pricing in power save mode only; they are not a capacity metric.
