The IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) is one of the critical tools for any company using IBM Software in a complex environment, ILMT is a system that helps businesses measure and monitor software usage.
ILMT is designed to assist you in managing your IBM software license requirements and ensuring that you are audit-ready. Customers are responsible for providing the necessary hardware and installation services for the tool to be installed. The IBM License Metric Tool helps you keep track of the PVU-based software that’s been installed in your Full Capacity or Virtualization (Sub-) Capacity environment, as well as the PVU licences that the software Product requires.
At Pronteff, we’ve been using ILMT since version 9.2 was released on March 17, 2015, via Software Announcement 215-076, and we’ve been quite familiar with all of the subsequent releases. Customers have 90 days after the deployment of their first qualifying Virtualization (Sub)-capacity product to install and use IBM License Metric Tool for supported virtualization.
