CA SAM – Incomplete IBM Resource Value Unit information in the Master Catalog

Idea created by parol01 Employee on Jan 29, 2016

    Several IBM products are defined in the standard catalog with the license metric ‘Resource Value Unit’ (RVU).

    Nevertheless, for some products those resources can be completely different (MSU, Core…)

    Example: Tivoli Business Service Manager V6.1.1 for z/OS


    for details.

    You can search for any IBM product here:

    We note that several tiers tables exist in the master catalog but they are not used at all.

    It would be a great idea if we can have in the article a field that contains the associated tier name as specified in the IBM official document.

    This information (tier associated with the product) has to be captured in the master catalog.
