Live Virtual Classes
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
For automatic notification of changes to this page, including
additions to the schedule, click on the "Notify me" link
in the navigation section on the left.
To be reminded of these virtual classes via email,
please mention "Linux and z/VM Webcasts" in the subject
line of your email to Stephanie.
Upcoming Live Virtual Classes (LVC)
Date: Wednesday, October 29, 2014
z/VM CPU Pooling and ILMT
Bill Bitner, z/VM Customer Focus and Care, IBM US
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.
Presentation Charts: TBD
