Merrill's Expanded Guide.

Quote:

MXG Software is a comprehensive SAS-based software package that processes the "SMF" data records created by the computer operating systems OS/390 MVS/XA, MVS/ESA, VM/SP, VM/ESA, DOS/VSE, and OS/400 and raw records created by their subsystems like CICS, IMS, TSO, DB2, and APPC, as well as raw data records created by UNIX monitors (HP's MeasureWare, Landmark's TUX) and NTSMF records created from Window NT Registery's counters, or SNMP data collected with TrendSNMP, etc., etc., etc.

MXG Software reads those raw data records into an organized collection of self-documented, labeled, formatted and decoded SAS data sets, commonly known as the Performance Data Base (PDB), which is used for Measurement of Service Objectives, for Resource Utilization, for System Tuning, for Accounting and Cost Recovery, and for the Measurement and Management of Capacity, offering menu-driven tabular and graphical reports and analyses.

MXG Software is licensed by physical site (not by CPU) at which raw data is created, to one company for processing their data created at that data center, for use only by employees of that company. There ARE restrictions if you are involved in outsourcing, facilities management, or service bureau environments!
