Calculated By

The source of the compliance calculation. Internal means calculated by IT Asset Management.

For IBM PVU licenses only, this column may display one of the following values:
  • Blank, for rows in the expanded list that represent virtual machines, partitions, or zones (these do not have consumption calculated)
  • ILMT when the points were calculated by (and imported from) ILMT
  • Internal when the points were calculated by FlexNet Manager Suite.
Tip: IBM requires that any sub-capacity license calculations are either
  • Derived from an IBM tool such as ILMT, TADd, or IBM Big Fix, or
  • Calculated by FlexNet Manager Suite, subject to a license amendment registered with IBM.
Depending on your settings, a host computer showing Internal may display sub-capacity license calculations performed by FlexNet Manager Suite. (For more information on securing IBM permission for sub-capacity calculations in FlexNet Manager Suite in lieu of an IBM product, see the Sub-Capacity Licensing with IBM PVU and IBM VPC chapter in the IT Asset Management System Reference PDF, available at

The Calculated by value is not editable, and is set by the inventory import and compliance calculation.
