Tables

Table Description
IBM PVU Mapping [sam_ibm_pvu_mapping] Each row in this table is a mapping between a set of processors and the associated PVU cost (per core). This table encodes the information specified by the IBM Table of Processor Value Units per core and is used in matching a computer's processor definition to derive a PVU cost for that computer.
Processor Definition [cmdb_processor_definition] Each row in this table describes a computer in terms of the attributes IBM uses for its PVU licensing model. A row can be associated with one or more (if they are all identical in terms of the attributes used for PVU licensing) discovered computers.

Fields

Field Table Description
ibm_pvu_mapping Hardware [cmdb_ci_hardware] PVU rule that applies to the software installation. Used for IBM PVU-based license counting.
ibm_pvu_mapping Software Installation [cmdb_sam_sw_install] PVU rule that applies to the software installation. Used for IBM PVU-based license counting.

Script includes

ProcessorDefinitionsUtils Contains utilities for managing the Processor Definition [cmdb_processor_definition] table.
ProcessorValueUnitsUtils Contains logic that determines the IBM PVU pricing associated with a given processor.
