Software Service Levels

THIS SECTION CONTAINS THE MINIMUM REQUIRED SOFTWARE PRODUCT LEVELS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THIS DEVICE. 1. 16/02/16 The following z/VM 6.2.0, and 6.3.0 service is available in support of the IBM z Systems z13 (at driver level D27) including LinuxONE Emperor, and z13s including LinuxONE Rockhopper servers (note z/VM 5.4 is not supported on the z13, z13s, nor LinuxONE): - With the PTF for APAR VM65577, z/VM 6.2 and 6.3 provide guest exploitation support for Crypto Express5S, support for up to 85 Crypto Express domains, and z/OS guest exploitation support for the Regional Crypto Enablement (RCE) adapters. - With the PTF for APAR VM65716, z/VM 6.2 provides support for the following: - LPAR Group Absolute Capacity Capping, enabling each partition to consume capacity up to its individual limit (if any) as long as the group's aggregate consumption does not exceed its absolute capacity limit, including updated QVS support. - With the PTF for APAR VM65716, z/VM 6.3 provides support for the following: - LPAR Group Absolute Capacity Capping, enabling each partition to consume capacity up to its individual limit (if any) as long as the group's aggregate consumption does not exceed its absolute capacity limit, including updated QVS support. - Guest exploitation support of Shared Memory Communications-Direct (SMC-D) networking within the CPC without requiring RoCE hardware or external switches Note: See the 2965DEVICE bucket 2965/ZOS subset for required z/OS service in support of SMC-D - Dynamic Memory Management improved efficiency when a dynamic memory upgrade uses only a portion of the reserved main storage (memory) for the partition by initializing and clearing just the amount of memory requested. - With the PTF for APAR VM65733, z/VM V6.3 enables guests to exploit the Vector Facility for z/Architecture, providing Single-Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) support - z/VM IOCP support for the z13 (at driver level D27), LinuxONE Emperor, z13s and LinuxONE Rockhopper with the PTF for APAR VM65736 - Performance ToolKit support for the z13 (at driver level D27), LinuxONE Emperor, z13s and LinuxONE Rockhopper with the PTF for APAR VM65698 - VMHCD support for the z13 (at driver level D27), LinuxONE Emperor, z13s and LinuxONE Rockhopper with the PTF for APAR VM65729. - VMHCM support for the z13 (at driver level D27), LinuxONE Emperor, z13s and LinuxONE Rockhopper with the PTF for APAR VM64844. - z/VM EREP support for the z13 (at driver level D27), LinuxONE Emperor, z13s and LinuxONE Rockhopper with the PTF for APAR VM65704 For further information, see URL http://www.vm.ibm.com/service/vmreqz13.html
