IBM RVU License Consumption Report

Jump to solution

Hi 

In the case where someone is using  Flexera potentially in place of ILMT (subject to overall IBM approval). There was a tip given on your FlexNet Manager Suite Online Help page that stated: 

To meet IBM's reporting requirements, the following classes of data should be saved and safely archived for each reporting period. 

  • IBM PVU License Consumption
  • IBM RVU License Consumption
  • IBM PVU Out-Of-Date Inventory
  • Unlicensed Installations (in Management views, under License Compliance in the Compliance group), filtered by Publisher = IBM

I see all the reports in question, except the RVU license consumption report. 

Any advice here where to get this report, or does it fall under the PVU report and just select the licenses and the metric 'RVU'?

Thanks in advance.

You may want to refer to this specific wording from the online help IBM RVU (license type):

  • If you have the extended license from IBM allowing you to use FlexNet Manager Suite for sub-capacity IBM PVU license calculations (in place of ILMT), you can use the following process:
    1. Create an IBM PVU license (not a typo) and link it to the product being licensed with RVU MAPC points.
    2. In the Identification tab of the license properties for this license, use the Points rule set field to search for, and then select, the MAPC points rule. This rule consumes 1 point for each core (with all other settings matching any value). Because PVU licenses track historical values to record the peak in the reporting period, this license now records the highest number of cores (tracked as equivalent points).
    3. When ready (such as at the end of the reporting period), copy the total points from the PVU feeder license into your matching RVU license. The RVU license automatically applies the appropriate tiers to your core counts.

For more information about RVU MAPC licensing, see https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS8JFY_9.2.0/com.ibm.lmt.doc/Inventory/overview/c_resource_value_unit_licenses.html.

Thanks,
