With License Metric Tool, you can maintain an up-to-date inventory of software assets that are installed in your infrastructure, gather information about your hardware, and ensure license compliance of your enterprise. You always know what software you have, where it is, and how it is used. By monitoring consumption of PVU, VPC, and RVU MAPC metrics by IBM® products under full and subcapacity licensing terms, you can understand current license consumption. You can also predict the future one, thus providing the means to optimize your license costs.

The ILMT Topic Group will be the home base for all users of ILMT, no matter what IBM software they have deployed. We welcome comments, discussions, inquiries, and even requests for software enhancements. We invite any ILMT subject matter experts from within IBM or from our user community to blog on any aspect of the tool, including, for example, installation best practices, integrations with other monitoring tools, or how to prepare for a software audit.
