IBM Processor value unit table

A processor value unit table contains information about the conversion ratio that is used for available processor types.

The processor value unit table supports processor-based pricing models in which charges differ according to the type of processor on which the licensed product is installed and running. In the table, a number of units is assigned to each processor type for which this type of pricing model is available. It is necessary to ensure that the table is updated to reflect the ratios for all processors in use.

If a processor cannot be properly identified by an agent, it is shown in the processor table as OTHER. This case can occur because it is a new processor type and its discovery is not yet supported. In this situation, upload the newest processor value unit table.
