Live Virtual Classes


Upcoming Past z/VM LVCs Past Linux on System z LVCs Past z/VSE LVCs

General Information
IBM offers education on a variety of z/VM, Linux on System z and z/VSE topics in the form of "Live Virtual Classes" (LVC). The day of the LVC broadcast, you can see the charts and listen to the speaker "live". In addition, you are able (and are encouraged) to ask questions of the speaker during a Q&A session following the prepared presentation. Please register for the section you wish to attend. Each LVC lasts approximately one hour, including Q&A.

The day following each LVC, we plan to post the the charts here in PDF format. Shortly thereafter we plan to provide a replay where you can read the charts, hear the recording and the Q&As. You are welcome to read the charts or listen to the playbacks when you can't participate 'live' or even if you wish to hear it all again.

Upcoming Live Virtual Classes (LVC)

Date: Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Topic: z/VM CPU Pooling and ILMT
Speaker: Bill Bitner, z/VM Customer Focus and Care, IBM US
Abstract: Support was added to z/VM 6.3 for a new capability known as CPU Pooling. What are these new pools? Does it mean no running or splashing? No, but CPU Pooling along with other enhancements to z/VM 6.3 allows greater control over processor resource usage and potentially the effect on software license charges. This session explains how to set up CPU Pooling and how it works. It will also cover some of the aspects of the IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) and how the two work together.
