This chart shows the flow of your SMF data into IBM's Sub-Capacity
Reporting Tool and LCS.
In addition to processing the SMF70 and SMF89 data
that SCRT processes, LCS also processes SMF30 and SMF72 data. The SMF30
data is analyzed to correctly identify the Simultaneous 4-Hour Rolling
Averages for the products that do not produce SMF89 data.
You can use this additional information to Review and Modify
the SCRT Output Spreadsheet before sending
it to IBM. The LCS Recommended MSUs may be entered in the
'Customer MSU' column of your SCRT report. Your 'Customer
Comment', the reason for changing the SCRT report should be
'due to deeper analysis of the SMF data with LCS'. Month after
month LCS can lower your software charges through the additional
processing and analysis of the SMF30 data.
