Capacity planner (usually Performance & capacity planner) is monitoring how much resource is being used by the processing being performed at the site.

It depends on how involved you get, but when I performed this task it involved breaking down tasks by account codes to charge users for resource consumed, Tape & DASD comsumation and projected purchase reqs, projecting when a more powerful CPU was required, analysing processing I/O bottlenecks on hardware and/or channels, other reasons why jobs take so long and how can they be improved, and a whole load of other interesting things too.

I was lucky in that it was a forward thinking and planning company with lots of interesting things to do.
