----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ZLINUX_ARCH
(z/Linux only) Specifies the architecture of the agent that you are installing. Valid values are as follows:

31-bit
64-bit

Note: The bitness of the JRE must match the ZLINUX_ARCH value.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tip: Use the `uname -m` command to verify the CPU class. It must report 's390' to indicate a 31-bit environment or 's390x' to indicate a 64-bit environment.
