DESCRIPTION

Reducing the Cost of Computing -- Increased Availability

The MVS/ESA sysplex was announced in September 1990 as a platform for an evolving large system computing environment. With the enhancements in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, the sysplex evolves into more than a platform. The new parallel sysplex is a large system computing environment that offers improved price/performance through cost effective processor technology and enhanced software. This technology builds on existing S/390 skills and will run existing applications -- an additional cost saver. A sysplex can also increase system availability, and, at the same time, increase the potential for doing more work. For additional information on the S/390 Parallel Sysplex, refer to Hardware Announcement 194-081, dated April 6, 1994.

Since the introduction of the sysplex, IBM has developed technologies that enhance sysplex capabilities. The parallel sysplex of MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 supports up to 32 systems and significantly improves communication and data sharing among those systems. Both MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 and MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 exploit the sysplex capabilities, and a sysplex configuration is required for a JES2 Multi-access Spool (MAS) or a JES3 complex.

The parallel sysplex now supports high performance data sharing through a new coupling facility. The coupling facility gives high performance multisystem data sharing capability to authorized applications, such as MVS subsystems. Use of a coupling facility by software subsystems, such as Information Management System Database Manager (IMS DB), ensures integrity and consistency of data throughout the sysplex.

Multisystem data sharing makes the sysplex ideal for parallel processing, particularly for online transaction processing (OLTP).

Data Sharing in a Sysplex

Connecting a large number of systems introduces special considerations, such as how the systems communicate and how they cooperate to share resources. These considerations affect the overall operation of MVS systems.

As the number of systems increases, it is essential to have an efficient way to share data across systems. Use of the coupling facility substantially improves the feasibility of connecting many MVS systems together in a sysplex to process work in parallel. The coupling facility enables high performance data sharing for authorized applications, such as MVS subsystems and components, that are running in a sysplex. These subsystems and components then extend the benefits of data sharing and recovery to their applications. There is no single system creating a bottleneck; the data does not need to be partitioned or re-partitioned when adding another system.

The Coupling Facility Technology

The technology that makes high performance sysplex data sharing possible is a combination of hardware and software services available in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1. High bandwidth fiber optic links called coupling links provide high speed connectivity between the coupling facility and systems connected to it.

Exploiters of the Coupling Facility

In a parallel sysplex, authorized applications, such as subsystems and MVS components can use the coupling facility services to cache data, share queues and status, and access sysplex lock structures in order to implement high performance data sharing and rapid recovery from failures. The subsystems and components transparently provide the data sharing and recovery benefits to their applications.

The initial IBM data management system using the coupling facility is IMS/ESA(R) Version 5 DB (IMS DB).

IMS/ESA Version 5 TM uses the MVS Cross System Coupling Facility (XCF) to provide cross MVS image Open Transaction Manager Access (OTMA) in the sysplex. IMS OTMA together with MVS XCF provides an interface for host-based communications servers to access IMS TM applications. MQ, TCP/IP, RPC and IMS TM systems could be used across their appropriate platforms in conjunction with each other, thus taking advantage of existing application/data skills. For more information, refer to Software Announcement 294-153, dated April 6, 1994.

CICS(TM) uses the MVS Cross System Coupling Facility (XCF) to provide cross MVS image multi-region operation (MRO) for communication with other CICS systems in both the same and different MVS images, in the same sysplex.

Other subsystems use the data sharing capabilities of the coupling facility. For more information refer to Software Announcement 294-162, dated April 6, 1994 and Software Announcement 294-028, dated February 1, 1994.

JES2 (Checkpoint Data Set): JES2 allows installations to define checkpoint data sets on both coupling facility structures and DASD. Placing the checkpoint on a coupling facility provides for more equitable access to the checkpoint by all multi-access spool (MAS) members, allowing a mixture of S/390 microprocessors, 9121 511-based or 9021 711-based processors in the same MAS.

JES3 XCF Exploitation: Replacing the JES3 CTC support with XCF communications allows an installation to reduce their hardware investment to run a JES3 complex by sharing hardware resources with other components that also use XCF signalling. The use of ESCON(R) CTCs allows for improved monitoring of the hardware and greater distance between processors in a sysplex. This support enables the installation to run multiple communication paths between processors concurrently and thus reduce the potential for single failures disrupting operations. Communication paths between processors can be added dynamically and communication hardware can be changed without having to change the JES3 initialization stream.

In addition, the requirement to define CPU ID's to JES3 has been removed. This means that a JES3 complex-wide warm start is no longer required to change the CPU ID on a processor.

Parallel Processing in a Sysplex

Parallel processing is a technology that increases application availability, provides more servers for enhanced capacity, and if the enhanced capacity relieves system bottlenecks, visibly reduces end-user response time. One reason for using a sysplex is to enable parallel processing. The sysplex brings together parallel capability on many levels -- the applications, the supporting sysplex software, and the hardware. Applications can be duplicated to run in parallel on a single, tightly coupled multiprocessing system. When running parallel applications in a sysplex with subsystems that support enhanced communication across systems, there is a greater degree of parallelism. And when hardware is added to that greater degree of parallelism -- hardware with the capability for modular, incremental growth -- the broad-based parallelism that is available in a sysplex is achieved.

OLTP applications use system software services provided by transaction managers and they access data controlled by data management systems. To balance the transactions dynamically across systems, MVS workload manager, a component of MVS/ESA, works with the transaction managers. CICS/ESA(TM) and IMS TM are the MVS transaction managers which provides parallel support in a sysplex.

Data Management Systems: If the data management system uses the coupling facility, the OLTP applications can avoid shipping data back and forth between systems. By using the coupling facility for data sharing and for queuing and status control, data management systems and transaction managers can perform their duties more quickly and can therefore manage more systems efficiently.

With this release of MVS, the data management system that takes advantage of the coupling facility is IMS/DB.

Managing Work in a Sysplex

Parallelism requires dynamic multisystem workload balancing. In a multisystem environment, the set of performance issues changes. Algorithms for tuning a small number of systems fall short in a multisystem environment. Managing work in a sysplex requires MVS and transaction managers to cooperate to dynamically balance all types of workloads.

To help achieve balanced workloads in a sysplex, Workload Manager, a component of MVS/ESA, provides goal-oriented dynamic resource balancing. With workload management, an installation defines performance goals for workloads and assigns a business importance to the workload. Workload management focuses on attaining those performance goals through dynamic resource distribution.

This type of workload management is in contrast to the way workloads were previously managed. Prior to MVS Workload Manager, an installation defined how resources were to be distributed in anticipation of how workloads would use them. With workload management, the installation defines performance goals and the system adapts to meet the goals.

Defining Performance Goals: Performance goals for an installation are defined in service policies. In the service policy, goals are defined for all types of MVS-managed work, online and batch. Service policies allow adjustment of performance goals for different periods of time.

Performance administration is done by a service level administrator who defines performance goals through an ISPF application, and receives reports on how well the sysplex achieved the goals. On each system, workload management dynamically matches resources to work according to the goals defined in the service policy. During processing, workload management monitors how well the goals are being met and adjusts accordingly. If there is contention for resources, workload management makes the appropriate trade-offs based on the importance of the work and how well the goals are being met.

Workload Balancing: Initial cooperation between MVS and the transaction managers allows definitions of performance goals for all types of MVS-managed work.

The MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 Workload Manager allows CICS to define goals and constraints to provide goal-oriented tuning of CICS workloads. CICSPlex System Manager/ESA (CICSPlex SM) cooperates with the Workload Manager to dynamically route CICS transactions to meet workload goals. VTAM also supports workload balancing by calling MVS workload management, maintaining session counts, and routing generic requests for CICS sessions. Refer to Software Announcement 294-028, dated February 1, 1994; Software Announcement 294-021, dated February 1, 1994; and Software Announcement 294-026, dated February 1, 1994.

In support of the new MVS Workload Manager, IMS TM and IMS DB will provide information about the unit of work related to the IMS system address spaces, enabling MVS to assist customer operations and systems management personnel in making informed decisions in controlling the workload. Refer to Software Announcement 294-153, dated April 6, 1994.

Improved Availability

With a sysplex, a customer can configure for the degree of availability that meets a business need, whether it be for operation 24 hours a day seven days a week, or something less. The cost of availability has been reduced (as compared to an XRF configuration for example), and the options for making tradeoffs between costs and availability have increased.

The coupling of systems in a sysplex can reduce the impact of planned outages on end users, and sharply limit exposure due to hardware and software failures. Availability in a sysplex is further supported by isolation features in the coupling facility and the ability to "fence" failing systems and subsystems from shared resources.

Access to Enterprise Data

Data sharing based on the coupling facility allows data management systems to communicate so that they can directly share data. Multi-system data sharing results in greater capacity against a single database than previous single-image systems. A single system cannot create a bottleneck; the data does not need to be partitioned or re-partitioned when another system is added.

Increased Capacity/Performance Improvement

S/390 parallel processing uses data sharing technology to allow up to 32 systems to concurrently access data. This results in easier and more flexible growth. By adding processors when more power is needed, an installation can increase its total capacity in scalable, cost-competitive increments to meet new levels of business volume or application growth.

The reserve capacity to backup a processor can be spread over all of the remaining systems in a complex. Therefore, each server can run at a higher utilization than in a partitioned environment. This results in a distinct cost advantage for a shared configuration.

Placing the JES2 checkpoint on a coupling facility provides for more equitable access to the checkpoint by all MAS members.

Replacing the JES3 CTC support with XCF communications allows installations to:

  • Reduce hardware investment to run a JES3 complex.
  • Run through ESCON CTCs and allow for improved monitoring of the hardware and greater distance between processors in a sysplex.
  • Run multiple communication paths between processors concurrently and thus reduce the potential for single failures disrupting operations.
  • Add communication paths between processors dynamically.
  • Change communication hardware without having to change the JES3 initialization stream.
Improved Systems Availability

Data sharing provides installations with more options for meeting their availability requirements. Data sharing largely satisfies the requirement for continuously available applications by allowing an installation to configure a system to eliminate single points of failure. Installations may configure their systems for hardware and software redundancy to reduce the impact of both planned and unplanned outages.

REDUCING THE COST OF COMPUTING -- WORKLOAD MANAGER

MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 introduces a new goal-oriented management philosophy to MVS that allows an installation to state its system performance expectations in the common business terminology generally used to document service level agreements (SLA's). A high-level interface for specifying performance goals replaces the specification of low-level resource oriented MVS tuning parameters. MVS manages contention for resources and adjusts dynamically as required. In instances of resource contention or insufficient capacity, MVS protects the work most critical to the installation without external intervention, improving the installation's ability to meet its business objectives.

Fewer, Simpler System Externals: With Workload Manager, customers define performance goals through an ISPF-based administrative application which includes an online tutorial and help panels. Definitions entered by the customer reflect customer terminology and are used consistently for all types of work. Where possible, the application validates customer specifications, thus eliminating the need for a system IPL to validate performance management system parameters.

Externals Reflect Customer Expectations: With Workload Manager, the goals for work defined through the administrative application mirror terms commonly used by customers in their SLA's. For MVS installations that have an SLA, these terms are frequently externalized to their customers as a means of documenting agreed-to end-user expectations. The definition of goals also includes an explicit statement of the relative importance of each goal, clearly establishing the hierarchy for management of resources in a constrained environment.

Expectations-to-Feedback Correlation: With Workload Manager, performance reporting and analysis metrics are displayed by RMF(TM) in the context of the goals specified in the administrative application. Reports indicate whether a goal is achieved, and if not, provide possible explanations. The administrative and reporting data is made available to other products (IBM and other vendors) for integration into more detailed, analytical performance management tools. Externalization of goals, actual results, and the importance to the customer of achieving those goals provides a platform for extending automated operations support to provide more meaningful warning alerts and automated actions.

With Enterprise Performance Data Manager (EDPM)/MVS or Service Level Reporter (SLR), information is collected for data summarization and reporting for all sysplex-related System Management Facility (SMF) records. Consolidated sysplex-wide reports can be produced and viewed on a workstation or on the host.

Systems Managed Toward Expectations: Given knowledge of customer goals for work, the System Resources Manager (SRM) component of MVS dynamically manages CPU dispatching, paging, swapping, and expanded storage. Internal low-level monitoring is performed to gather relevant information to guide tradeoff decisions and manage contention for these resources. Internal adjustments and decision-making are based on goals for work.

Sysplex Externals and Management Scope: With Workload Manager, the administrative policy and the corresponding performance reports have a sysplex-wide scope; a single policy is in effect for all active systems in a sysplex. Support is provided to synchronize the policy goals across systems, ensuring that all active systems are working in concert. From a performance administration and operations perspective, the sysplex is the operational entity. From a performance problem diagnosis perspective, the operational entity is still the single MVS image.

Enable Customer's Competitive Advantage

The evolution to a policy-based administration of MVS performance permits an installation to directly state its goals; there is no need to translate the goals into detailed, low-level technical terms. This reduces the likelihood that the true performance goals will get lost in the translation process. The new philosophy and supporting implementation gives systems programmers the ability to rapidly react to changes in the business environment.

Increased Capacity/Performance Improvement

Workload Manager can provide capacity and performance improvements by:

  • Reducing definition of numerous low-level performance management parameters; this reduces system bottlenecks caused by inappropriate or inconsistent parameter specifications.
  • Providing real-time dynamic management of system resources toward installation-defined goals for work. Resources can be applied to the workloads that are most important.
  • Adapting more quickly to changing workload demands and changing business priorities, through basing resource contention resolution decisions on responsiveness requirements and on the relative importance of competing workloads.
  • Allowing resource consumption limits for categories of work.
  • Providing the ability to establish multiple policies, varying goals and capacity limits for different circumstances.
I/S Operations Productivity

Workload Manager can increase overall I/S effectiveness and the productivity of I/S personnel by:

  • Reducing the need for and/or complexity of ongoing performance monitoring and fine-tuning; this permits existing operations and systems support staff to redirect a portion of their time to other activities more important to their business.
  • Reducing the need for translating high-level business objectives into system parameter definitions describing low-level physical controls; I/S technical personnel communicate with their user community, their upper level management, and with MVS using the same terminology.
  • Reducing the need for operations personnel to monitor system performance and make real-time performance decisions; the responsibility for satisfying performance goals is effectively transferred from the operations staff to MVS software.
  • Enabling performance reporting in terms of the defined goals, with consistency for different transaction managers; performance reporting is enhanced with response time distributions and transaction delay information.
Managing Multiple Systems

Workload Manager allows installations to move to an environment where the system manages itself toward installation goals. This allows the staff to more effectively manage its current workload or to increase the workload and the number/size of systems.

As the size of the sysplex increases, it becomes an absolute requirement to have an effective and manageable workload management solution. The administrative policy and the corresponding performance reports have a sysplex-wide scope and consistently apply to all MVS-based job and transaction processing environments. Expanding the scope of control enables installations to effectively utilize a larger number of MVS system images.

Reducing the Cost of Computing -- Systems Management Enhancements

MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 contributes to the overall cost effectiveness of the S/390 platform through various improvements in the area of systems management. MVS 5.1 reduces costs related to the management of MVS systems, including installation, operations, administration and problem determination. This release provides better management of existing multi-system complexes, as well as some benefits in single system environments.

System Availability

MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 provides availability improvements for both single and multiple system environments, through the following enhancements:

  • Display RESERVE Status: Enables identification of which system in a shared DASD environment owns a RESERVE so that operators and systems programmers can free the resource and reduce the duration of system outages.
  • Dynamic Installation Exits: Provides system control of multiple exit routines for an exit, and permits updates to exit processing without an IPL.
  • Operator Control of JES2 All-system Warm-start: Allows an operator to bypass spool validation for unplanned outages, thus decreasing JES2 restart time.
  • Subspace Group Facility: Improves the reliability of a service provider (an address space that contains application programs that can be used by other address spaces) by preventing multiple programs that run in a single address space from overwriting one another. An authorized application program can assign a unique section of address space private storage to each program running in the address space. The programs can reference only the storage assigned to them, which prevents them from accidentally overwriting each other's data and code.
Managing Multiple Systems:

Configuration Management

The following enhancements have been made to improve configuration management:

  • Shared Master Catalog: All systems in a sysplex can now be managed through a shared master catalog. A single parmlib member can be used for multiple systems.
  • SMF Data Set Naming: Removes restrictions on the naming conventions for SMF datasets. This addresses customer requirements running in a single system environment and also removes an obstacle for sharing a master catalog among the members of a sysplex.
  • SMF System ID Enhancement: Allows an installation to use a single SMF member for the entire sysplex.
  • Job Support for Started Tasks: Provides support for started tasks to have the same accounting, security, and output control that is provided in batch jobs. This allows started tasks, instead of batch jobs, to be used for critical work elements, thus simplifying the management of these work elements. With RACF Version 2 Release 1, the user ID and group of a started task are now based on additional input from MVS along with the data in a new RACF started task class, which may be modified without an IPL. Refer to Software Announcement 294-162, dated April 6, 1994 for additional information.
  • Device Self Descriptor Service Enhancement: Enables an authorized application program to retrieve information, such as serial numbers and model numbers, that can uniquely identify I/O hardware on a specific I/O path. With this information a system programmer can:
    • Identify components, such as devices or control units, across multiple systems.
    • Check paths of installed devices to ensure that cables are connected to the proper device before the device or path is varied online.
    • Construct a map of an installation's configuration.
    • During problem diagnosis, ensure that all paths are connected to the right device.
  • I/O Path Validation: Allows ESCON Manager to retrieve the most current device status information and display it on the configuration workstation.
  • Enhanced Configuration Management for S/390 Microprocessor Clusters Provided by the Following:
    • HCD provides the capability to display the active processors in a S/390 microprocessor cluster and their associated definition in the IODF. This is the single point of control for remote IOCDS and IPL profile management.
      • IOCDS information can be viewed for all processors in the S/390 microprocessor cluster. IOCDS management functions such as switch, download, display, and enable/disable write protect IOCDS can be performed for the selected processors (single processor or group of processors).
      • View the IPL attributes used for the last IPL and change them for the next IPL. This relates to IPLADDR and IPLPARM.
    • Manual operator intervention is eliminated through the ability to use a RACF-authorization check instead of a WTOR-authorization check when an IOCDS is written.
  • HCD: Enhancements for Configuration Management Include:
    • Coupling facility definition support: The coupling facility, which enables high speed connection of the systems, has to be defined in the IOCDSs of the CPCs that are connected to the coupling facility. HCD provides definition support to define and maintain a coupling facility and its connections to processors and logical partitions by generating the control units and device definitions needed by the channel subsystem.
    • Copy configuration data: The ability to copy processor and operating system configurations from one IODF to another simplifies reconfiguration and reorganization of IODFs.
    • Graphical reports: HCD helps the user in maintaining his configuration documentation by providing graphical reports that show configuration diagrams based on the definitions in the IODF.
Problem Management

In a sysplex, the symptom string data set is shared by all MVS images. A problem found on one system is immediately identified to all systems, so they can suppress any duplicates. Many MVS components have improved the creation of symptom strings so that each dump is unique and contains the data needed for diagnosis. Overall, the problem determination toolset is enhanced to provide a single system image of the sysplex, as well as a picture of the individual systems and components.

Problem management enhancements include:

  • Dump Management: Ensures that dumps and traces are successfully produced and managed in highly-parallel and data sharing environments. Dump datasets are allocated as needed, based on the size of the dump, so truncated dumps caused by improperly allocated data sets are eliminated. Operator intervention to create, process and clear dump datasets is no longer required, and DASD space is saved since empty datasets and large dump datasets containing small dumps are eliminated.
  • SLIP Enhancements: SLIP traps can now be defined on one system and cloned to other systems with minimal change. Multi-system traps are automatically disabled on all systems once the trap is disabled on any one system.
  • Multisystem SVC Dump Enhancements: An operator or a program on one system can now request SVC dumps on other systems in a sysplex. Operators and programmers can use generic characters to identify and group SVC dumps. This greatly improves diagnostic data gathering in a multisystem environment.
  • Stand-Alone Dump Enhancements: Enhancements include multi-volume support for DASD, which helps prevent duplicate dumps; support for extended count key data (ECKD(TM)), allowing for non-synchronous I/O; and optimized block size for the IBM 3390 Direct Access Storage Devices, improving dump efficiency.
  • IPCS: IPCS enhancements include the elimination of the limit of
  • 16 trace data sets that can be merged and addresses several bottlenecks affecting IPCS performance.
The following enhancements improve client/server problem determination:
  • APPC/MVS diagnostic services allow for improved diagnosis of APPC programs through better error code descriptions.
Operations Management

The operator interface in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 provides a single system image and a single point of control in a sysplex environment. Specific enhancements that support these themes are:

  • Sysplex Operations support reduces the complexity of managing a sysplex in the following ways:
    • Provides more of a single-system image to the sysplex by giving the operator the ability to route a command to more than one system in a sysplex and obtain an aggregated response.
    • Provides a single-system image of the operational I/O configuration, a single point for control of configuration resources and I/O paths, and a consolidated display of status information of the I/O configuration.
    • Provides a sysplex-wide command for MCS console activation and deactivation.
    • Eliminates some constraints which would cause bottlenecks in a sysplex of greater than eight systems.
    • Provides CTRACE for operations.
    • Facilitates operator action on programs which have more than one instance on a system.
    • Allows each instance of a started task to be assigned a unique job name.
    • Message reduction: The number of messages issued during IPL for temporarily busy devices is reduced, decreasing the need for operator intervention at IPL.
  • JES2 Checkpoint Reconfiguration Dialog: An operator can now respond to JES2 checkpoint problems for the entire sysplex, instead of each individual system. This significantly reduces operator intervention in the reconfiguration process.
Managing Parallel Growth

Growth in a multisystem environment can more easily be managed as a result of the following enhancements:

  • Base Parallel Support: Allows an installation to gradually migrate to a 32-system sysplex without a sysplex-wide re-IPL.
  • Global Resource Serialization (GRS) RESMIL Adjustment: Allows global resource serialization to process global ENQs without excessive delay in a complex of more than eight systems.
  • Sysplex Device Drain: Allows devices to be more quickly varied offline. A pending-offline device can be allocated only if the operator allows the allocation or if the allocated/offline device installation exit is implemented to permit the allocation. A device cannot go offline while it is allocated.
  • JES2 Parallel Support: JES2 now allows up to 32 members to be connected in a multi-access spool (MAS) configuration so that the members can be managed coherently. To support this new environment, JES2:
    • Expands affinity fields to support growth from 7 to 32 members.
    • Simplifies networking by externally representing a JES2 MAS as a single member.
    • Provides commands that work across members to control the multi-access spool configuration. An operator can now cancel, restart, or send a message to a job from any member of the MAS.
    • Provides a new $D MEMBER command that can be used to display information about a member of the MAS, such as the last time the member was started, the status of the member, whether the member is being reset, and the MVS image system name.
    • Uses console message buffers to transport messages and commands. Users can now specify up to 9999 console message buffers for command processing.
    • Provides a number of control blocks that installations can display using IPCS. New IPCS panels can be used to format and analyze MAS member data.

4 Digit Device Support

4 digit device support extends the maximum number of devices that can be defined in a single MVS image. This makes it easier to use the same I/O configuration definition for multiple systems and provides more flexibility for unique device numbers across a sysplex.

Improved Systems Availability

MVS 5.1 provides significantly higher levels of availability for both single system and multi-system configurations by reducing the number of planned and unplanned outages and by providing quicker recovery from an outage.

Dump management and SDUMP improvements reduce the repetition of unplanned outages caused by repeated failures and unsuccessful attempts to take dumps. Enhancements in MVS 5.1 mean that an IPL is no longer required to:

  • Make changes to exit routines for SMF and allocation installation exits.
  • Verify installation performance goals.
  • Provide security control for job level access for started tasks.
  • Add additional CPUs to a JES3 configuration.
An installation may now add additional capacity to an existing sysplex without a sysplex-wide IPL.

MVS 5.1 reduces the duration of system outages through:

  • Improved data gathering and diagnostic capabilities.
  • Improved JES2 warmstart processing; an operator can now bypass spool validation.
  • Identification of what system in a shared DASD environment owns a RESERVE; I/S personnel can now quickly identify the owning system and free the resource.
  • Real-time dynamic management of system resources toward installation-defined goals when a system fails in a sysplex.
I/S Operations Productivity

The enhancements to MVS 5.1 save system programmer time and effort required to set up and maintain procedures for single system and multiple system environments. These enhancements reduce complexity, reduce opportunity for error, and reduce the time needed to test changes, all resulting in reduced system programmer hours. Improved data gathering and diagnostic capabilities reduce the time required to diagnose or debug problems; this also improves system programmer productivity.

System programmer productivity is improved because MVS 5.1:

  • Improves and simplifies the management of hardware configuration data.
  • Consolidates and simplifies I/O configuration management functions.
  • Simplifies some parameter specification, especially for workload management.
  • Allows some parameters and procedures to be specified on a sysplex basis.
  • Allows a multi-system dump in the sysplex to be taken without needing to communicate with each system to specify the dump parameters, due to enhancements to the dump command.
  • Requires fewer installation exits for accounting and output control for started tasks.
  • Improves data gathering and diagnostic capabilities.
Operator productivity is increased in a number of ways:
  • Operators can more effectively manage multiple systems through enhancements to MVS, JES2 and JES3 command processing.
  • Operator intervention is eliminated when creating, processing and clearing dump datasets.
  • Operators no longer need to manually review started task message output to determine which started task to purge.
  • Simplified operational procedures for configuration management and diagnostic situations result in less opportunity for operator error.
Managing Multiple Systems

Multiple systems are easier to manage because MVS 5.1:

  • Provides a single point of control for MVS operations in a sysplex.
  • Reduces complexity because some parameters are specified once per sysplex rather than once per system.
  • Provides central management of hardware configuration data for a S/390 microprocessor cluster through new HCD functions.
  • Provides central configuration information for all sysplex hosts in one workstation.
  • Improves I/O configuration management functions for a sysplex.
  • Improves data gathering and diagnostic capabilities.
  • Provides additional sysplex-wide command support for ROUTEing commands and aggregating responses.
Increased Capacity/Performance Improvement

MVS 5.1 addresses capacity requirements for some installations and removes constraints encountered by some customers running a large number of systems in a sysplex.

Application Developer Productivity

Improvements to APPC/MVS allow for better diagnosis of APPC/MVS transaction programs and therefore increase application development productivity.

The subspace group facility prevents a transaction from overwriting a data base record owned by another transaction. This support reduces application testing and debugging so CICS applications can be brought online more quickly.

OPENEDITION ENHANCEMENTS

In MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, new functions have been added to the MVS base code to support additional open interfaces. OpenEdition integrates open interfaces into MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 by building on existing MVS functions. Thus DCE and POSIX support ship as components of MVS. Integrated sockets support provided in MVS/ESA SP 5.1, along with TCP/IP modifications coupled with DCE and POSIX support, provides users and vendors with an operating system that makes it easier to port UNIX applications to MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1. The internationalization support provided in the Shell and Utilities expands the role of MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 as a worldwide product.

MVS/ESA SP Version 4 Release 3 OpenEdition Services feature

Integrated

The MVS/ESA Version 4 Release 3 OpenEdition Services feature, previously announced in Software Announcement 293-060, dated February 9, 1993, has been integrated into the base for MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1. The POSIX 1003.1 support in this feature satisfies FIPS-151-2 conformance test requirements. Registration with NIST is in process. This feature will be shipped as a separate FMID (Function module(s) identification) on the MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 install tape and is installed via SMP/E.

NFS Support in OpenEdition MVS

The DFSMS/MVS(TM) Network File System feature allows a workstation to access files that may reside elsewhere in a network as if they were resident on the workstation. An NFS** client can access MVS datasets using the DFSMS /MVS Network File System feature of DFSMS/MVS Version 1 Release 2 that IBM currently provides.

The DFSMS/MVS Network File System feature along with support coded in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 allows the server to directly interface with the OpenEdition Hierarchical File System (HFS). Client applications or workstations can mount the OpenEdition HFS as a local file system and treat files as an extension of the workstation's file system.

AD/Cycle C/370 Language Support feature

A new feature is introduced in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 which allows the user to install the AD/Cycle C/370 Run-time Library component and the CEL (Common Execution Language interface) from AD/Cycle LE/370 Version 1 Release 3 into the operating system base at no charge. This feature, shipped as an FMID on MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, provides the run-time library support needed by the OpenEdition functions available in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1. Refer to Software Announcement 294-112, dated March 8, 1994 for the AD/Cycle C/370 Compiler Release 2 product and Software Announcement 294-113, dated March 8, 1994 for the AD/Cycle LE/370 Release 3 product for details on the support provided by this feature.

Internationalization Support

Support has been added to the OpenEdition Shell and Utilities feature for the following language/country environments. Locales provided by AD/Cycle C/370 Run Time Library must be installed to use the internationalization support. Refer to Software Announcement 294-112, dated March 8, ,1994 for details and locale creation utility supported by the AD/Cycle C/370 Compiler Release 2 product. Refer to Software Announcement 294-113, dated March 8, 1994 for details on the supported languages and code pages and locales shipped in the AD/Cycle C/370 Run-time Library as part of the AD/Cycle Language Environment(R)/370.

The Shell and Utilities will support only code page 1047 for the single byte languages listed below.

  • EMEA
    • Danish (Denmark)
    • German (Switzerland)
    • German (Germany)
    • English (Great Britain)

    • Japanese (Japan) single-byte (Code page 1027)
    • Japanese (Japan) double-byte
Note: Translated messages will be provided for Japanese.

REXX Support in OpenEdition Shell

REXX programs are supported in a manner similar to executable files. A REXX program can be executed directly from the OpenEdition Shell and other programs. Issuing host commands is integral to the REXX language. OpenEdition MVS provides two new host command environments:

  • A new Shell Host Command Environment allows REXX programs to execute OpenEdition shell commands and shell scripts.
  • A new System call Host Command Environment supports REXX program access to most of the system call functions defined in POSIX
  • 1003.1. This environment is also available to REXX programs that run in the current MVS environments, such as TSO.
Multiple Processes in an Address Space

A number of open systems applications use multiple processes to achieve their goals. When these applications are implemented on MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 they consume one address space per process.

In order to enable multi-process applications on MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 and to optimize resource utilization, the kernel is providing services callable from assembler language which will allow the application to run multiple processes within the same address space.

This function is initially to enable IBM to implement the OpenEdition DCE base services and to implement support in Shells and Utilities for multiple shells. This support is not available for C language applications running under the Common Execution Environment.

Integrated Sockets Support

Integrated sockets support is a sockets API that includes the functionality of BSD** 4.3 UNIX sockets integrated into the OpenEdition POSIX 1003.1 environment. It includes the following:

  • A "forkable", threadsafe and thread enabled sockets API that serves as a foundation for the porting or implementation of typical client/server functions found in UNIX systems.
  • A single run time library to support a common API used by OpenEditionMVS, OpenEdition DCE, and sockets applications.
  • Support for UNIX-domain sockets for local inter-process communications.
  • Support consistent with eventual conformance to the evolving POSIX
  • 1003.12 Networking standard defined sockets interface.
dbx Extensions

Modifications to the Debugger feature have been made which will allow programs which use the POSIX 1003.4a threading support to be debugged interactively at either the source level or the machine level.

OpenEdition DCE Base Services

By integrating the OSF/DCE Executive component into MVS, IBM is expanding the role of MVS as an open system. OpenEdition DCE Base Services in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 supports the following:

  • RPC (Remote Procedure Call)
  • Directory Services
  • Security Services
  • Time Services
All components supported are OSF DCE level 1.0.2. The OpenEdition Base services supports clients/servers which run only on a TCP/IP network.

Remote Procedure Call (RPC): OpenEdition DCE RPC provides programmers with a number of powerful tools to build client/server applications. Two major components are:

  • A Run-Time library.
  • A compiler that converts high-level interface descriptions into portable C-language source code.
The resulting remote procedure calls behave in the same way as local procedure calls.

OpenEdition DCE RPC automatically invokes directory, security, and communications services for the application programmer. All communications code, error handling, and data conversions are handled transparently. This means substantial reductions in the amount of time required to code a distributed application and in the amount of code that must be written and maintained by the applications programmer. The OpenEdition DCE RPC lets the programmer concentrate on writing business logic required by an application. Many of the network sensitivities previously maintained within applications are no longer required.

Directory Services: A directory is a facility that lets you look up the name of an object and retrieve information about it. The objects in a distributed system are the users, the systems, and the resources associated with the systems. These objects are probably geographically dispersed, and their locations may change as users and resources change.

The DCE solution is to have a single, distributed directory service. It is no longer necessary to maintain local copies of information about resources. Instead, the directory service provides a logically centralized, physically distributed place to store information. The directory represents a hierarchical namespace of infinite depth. It is scalable to any size. The directory can accommodate all of the distributed resources in an enterprise, and will grow as a distributed system grows. A client application queries the directory service when it needs information about the location of a resource with which it needs to communicate.

Once the directory structure is in place, the application programmer can refer to a subroutine by its unique identifier and is guaranteed that the location of that subroutine will be returned to the application automatically. This means that the programmer does not have to hard-code any addresses in a program, which results in much greater flexibility in the placement of logic and data in the network.

Directory Server: Two types of DCE directory servers are defined:

  • A Cell Directory Server
  • A Global Directory Server
In order to use the OpenEdition DCE directory services an OSF Cell is needed for each cell. An AIX/6000(TM) or OS/2(R) system running an OSF DCE Cell Directory Server is required. If the use of OpenEdition DCE is planned for production, then it is recommended that the AIX/6000 system be used. Use of OS/2 should be evaluated for limited production use of OpenEdition DCE Base services.

If more than one cell is defined and resources are to be shared between cells, an OSF DCE Global Directory Server is required. An AIX/6000 system running the AIX(R) DCE Global Directory Server/6000 and the AIX/ DCE Global Directory Client/6000 is required.

  • AIX/6000 Software The AIX DCE Cell Directory Server/6000 (5765-119) must be installed on a RISC System/6000(R). Refer to Software Announcement 292-533 for details on ordering the AIX DCE Cell Directory Server/6000. The AIX DCE Global Directory Server/6000 and the AIX DCE Global Directory Client/6000 must be installed on a RISC System/6000 when Global Directory Services are needed. Refer to Software Announcement 293-491, dated September 21, 1993 for details on ordering these products.
  • OS/2 Software The IBM DCE Software Developer's Kit (95F8690) must be installed on a PS/2(R). Refer to Software Announcement 293-428 for details on ordering the IBM DCE Software Developer's Kit or OS/2 and Windows.
Security Services: The security support provided by OpenEdition DCE ensures that DCE clients and DCE servers are trusted in a heterogeneous network. The security services protects all DCE resources from attack through the use of access control. This combination provides a cross-vendor, cross-platform security capability that is not found elsewhere.

Authentication

To prevent users and resources from being compromised and to provide a common security service in the distributed environment, OSF has selected a third party authentication paradigm.

There are four major benefits to this system.

  1. There is no longer a need to explicitly define every user to every physical system that one may access in the DCE environment. This does away with substantial administrative overhead, since a DCE user or DCE resource only needs to be defined once instead of a large number of times. This also does away with two kinds of security risks; there is only one password for each DCE user to remember, and there is no possibility that a system programmer on another network can gain remote access to a remote user's password.
  2. The DCE client is protected from the DCE server. Most security systems only protect the intelligence at the host or server end. But with more and more data on workstations, attack on the server becomes a real consideration. DCE security services which employ Kerberos ticket-based authentication make it more difficult for an imposter to impersonate a server.
  3. The third benefit of DCE security is that, like the directory services, security has a logically central, physically distributed database for its users. Because it is a single logical structure, changes only need to be made in a single place.
  4. The final major advantage of this authentication scheme is that a DCE user need login only once to access all the DCE resources in a distributed system. Once one has been authenticated to the DCE security server and has a valid ticket for the desired application server, the DCE application server will give access to those DCE resources which the user is allowed to access.
Access Control

Once a protected session has been established between the DCE client and the DCE server, the DCE client will be allowed to access the resources that are managed by the DCE server in a controlled manner. Security policies are set up by an administrator to control access to server resources.

User Data Privacy Feature: The OpenEdition DCE user data privacy feature is a no charge feature used for controlling the export of the DES algorithm. When installed, this feature enables data encryption using the DES algorithm. Because this feature enables the support of DES, it is subject to US Government import/export laws and regulations regarding "full" DES products.

Security Server: In order to use the OpenEdition DCE security services, a RISC System/6000 or a PS/2 which supports an OSF DCE security server must be used. If the use of OpenEdition DCE is planned for production then it is recommended that the RISC System/6000 be used. Use of OS/2 should be evaluated for only limited production uses of OpenEdition DCE where applicable.

RISC System/6000 Software

The AIX DCE Cell Security Server/6000 (5765-118) must be installed on the RISC System/6000. Refer to Software Announcement 292-533 for details on ordering the AIX DCE Security Server.

PS/2 Software

The IBM DCE Software Developer's Kit (96F8690) must be installed on the PS/2. Refer to Software Announcement 293-428 for details on ordering the IBM DCE Software Developer's Kit for OS/2 and Windows.

Time Services: The OpenEdition DCE time services support the following:

  • A way to periodically synchronize the clocks on the different nodes in a distributed network.
  • A way of keeping the synchronized time in each node reasonably close to the correct time. Correct time is considered to be Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), an international standard.
OpenEdition Vendor Support

IBM has participation from vendors who intend to use the OpenEdition services, in support of our mutual customers' needs. Some of the products, whose availability on OpenEdition is expected in 1994, include major application development products, like CaseWare CM**, Sapiens RAD**, well-known system support tools, such as OMEGAMON** and CA-ACF2**, and important industry applications like TUXEDO**, SAS System** and MOSAIC**.

A list of approximately 30 vendor products intended to be ported to MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 and which use OpenEdition services is provided below. The list includes both traditional MVS-based products and UNIX-based applications. IBM is strongly supporting the porting process through porting centers, consultation and availability of pre-release product documentation. Additional vendor participation is expected and welcomed.

This list of vendors is provided for customer information. IBM makes no representation or warranties whatsoever regarding the following products. For information regarding the products, the vendor should be contacted.

Access to Enterprise Data

OpenEdition DCE application support makes current data and logic available to heterogeneous clients by using a single set of standardized interfaces.

OpenEdition Base Services provides for heterogeneous logic sharing at the enterprise level.

New applications written to the DCE paradigm will be insulated from location changes in the network. OpenEdition DCE directory services allows transparent relocation of resources without requiring changes to the application programs.

Interoperability Improvements

Worldwide customers in the US, Canada, EMEA, and Japan who use either country-unique, single-byte or double-byte characters sets will be able to build POSIX applications in their native language thus increasing their efficiency.

The integrated sockets support will allow installations to port UNIX applications to MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 thus reducing the cost to implement new applications. Similarly, POSIX applications developed on MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 which use sockets will port more easily to other UNIX systems.

The availability of a common UNIX debugger, dbx, saves retraining time for application programmers.

By supporting a comprehensive set of standard interfaces, OpenEdition DCE Base Services provides a de facto standard method for heterogeneous application interoperation.

Application Developer Productivity

System administrators using the DFSMS/MVS Network File System feature support of HFS can save valuable time by defining and maintaining large central files on MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 that can be accessed by many different users and heterogeneous systems in the network.

Workstation applications (for example, editors, client code) can directly manulate files in the HFS. This enhances the usefulness of the workstation.

Time can be saved using the DFSMS/MVS Network File System feature support of HFS to create, edit and move data through a heterogeneous network.

The multi-process per address space function will significantly reduce the cost of computing by reducing the number of address spaces required by users of the OpenEdition OMVS command, OpenEdition DCE Base Services, and some ported applications from UNIX systems.

Because it uses a single, standard distributed application programming paradigm, OpenEdition DCE Base Services reduces the amount of communications code which needs to be built into new applications. The pervasiveness of the DCE services means that the application programmer need no longer build these types of services into an application, and can spend more time developing actual solutions to real problems.

Ordering Improvements

The integration of the MVS/ESA SP Version 4 Release 3 OpenEdition POSIX support feature, called OpenEdition MVS system services, into MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 simplifies the ordering process for OpenEdition function.

The availability of the OpenEdition AD/Cycle C/370 Language support feature reduces the business investment in new licenses to use OpenEdition MVS.

The OpenEdition DCE Base Services feature is provided as part of MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 thus reducing the number of software licenses an installation must order to use OpenEdition.

Portability Improvements

Applications developed using the OSF DCE protocols are portable to any other OSF DCE implementation. The key areas of importance are the common set of APIs, the common set of services (security, directory, time), and the common communications paradigm (RPC). These functions provide a higher level of application portability than presently available.

Security Improvements

OpenEdition DCE security services provide the capability for heterogeneous DCE clients to perform single network login and access all resources managed by DCE, including those on MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1.

Asset Protection

Since OSF DCE technology is based on the concept of a distributed system, OpenEdition DCE Base Services allows the installation to optimize the placement of data and function in a network.

OpenEdition DCE Base Services provides continuing support for the heterogeneous environment which is present in many MVS/ESA installations.

PRODUCT POSITIONING

Parallel Processing

The sysplex enhancements in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 are part of the latest stage in the evolution of S/390, allowing scalable growth for transaction processing. Product positioning for the S/390 platform and parallel platform considerations is documented in Hardware Announcement 194-079, dated April 6, 1994. For additional information on the S/390 Parallel Sysplex, refer to Hardware Announcement 194-080, dated April 6, 1994.

Workload Management

One of MVS's greatest strengths as an operating system is its rich set of functions. This same richness works against it because of the extraordinary number of parameters that can be specified, monitored, and tuned to affect the workload mix and prioritization to meet business objectives. Prior to MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, MVS required customers' business goals to be translated from high-level objectives about what work needs to be done into extremely technical terms for the system to execute.

MVS Workload Management addresses the need for managing load balancing and the distribution of computing resources to competing workloads. This support includes improvements to the way work is categorized into workloads, the way work is managed prior to execution, and the means by which customers accomplish performance reporting and analysis.

The objectives of MVS Workload Management can be categorized into five general areas. These objectives have been reviewed with, and validated by select customers as part of the SHARE, Inc. and SHARE Europe user groups, and as part of a customer design council.

  • Fewer, Simpler System Externals To establish an MVS definition/tuning environment that divorces MVS internals (specifications) from the goal of managing workloads.
  • Externals Reflect Customer Expectations To establish new MVS performance management externals that reflect customer goals for work, expressed in terms commonly used by customers to negotiate Service Level Agreements with their customers and business partners.
  • Expectations-to-Feedback Correlation To provide support for performance reporting, analysis, and modelling tools that describe performance achievements in the same metrics as those used to express goals for work.
  • "System Managed" Toward Expectations To provide automatic work and resource management support that will dynamically adapt as needed, managing the tradeoffs between customer-defined external goals for work and efficient use of system resources.
  • Sysplex Externals and Management Scope To elevate the customer perspective such that the key human interactions will be from a sysplex perspective, eliminating the need to manage each individual MVS image.
An evolutionary approach has been developed for introducing the total Workload Manager solution, working with customers and working through an IBM internal software design council. The initial MVS Workload Manager included in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 introduces the new MVS goal-oriented philosophy. The concept of managing performance from an administrative perspective is phased in, in conjunction with dynamic system resource management algorithms that will influence control over work in execution. Preliminary cooperation between the base control program and the key subsystem work managers is also introduced, enabling sysplex-wide specification and reporting of installation goals for work managed by IMS, CICS, DB2(R), TSO, JES2, JES3, MVS/APPC, and OpenEdition. To ensure a level of comfort with such a change, the evolution to the new MVS Workload Management environment includes the capability to define the new goal-oriented externals in parallel with the existing system externals, and to change dynamically to the new orientation and dynamically back if the customer so desires. With the ability to change back and forth between the existing performance "knobs" and the new goal-oriented externals, the customer should be able to experiment with the new function.

Activation of the support provided by the base control program and the exploiting subsystem work managers is the first significant step MVS installations will take toward having the "system" manage itself -- focusing the application of system resources toward the customer business objectives. The realignment of the performance management methodology with Workload Manager in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 can result in long term personnel productivity gains, as well as near term functional and performance benefits. From a customer perspective, the externals delivered in MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 will facilitate customer migration to future enhancements in Workload Manager.

OpenEdition Enhancements

Most business managers today want to leverage and preserve technology investments to address new business opportunities. What is needed are solutions for total system integration that make the resources of the MVS system and LAN systems available to anyone in the customer's network when they need them. New technologies allow the utilization of workstation systems to take advantage of graphical user interfaces and personal computing power. In addition, the technologies enable moving more decision making capability out toward smaller, autonomous business units. These business units are looking for greater flexibility and data sharing among themselves, through LANs and with existing centralized corporate data contained at their mainframes.

The MVS System Open and Distributed Strategy is intended to meet those objectives. Simply put, the strategy describes a cohesive environment where applications in the network can:

  • Exploit the traditional strengths of MVS, using an integrated set of open system services.
  • Exchange data and access services transparently.
  • Be ported easily across multi-vendor operating systems which support open standards.
  • Be managed, along with their data, across the network.
In MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, new functions have been added to the MVS base code to support additional open interfaces. OpenEdition DCE Base Services and OpenEdition POSIX 1003.1 and POSIX 1003.4a subset ship as components of MVS. The additional integrated sockets support provided in MVS along with TCP/IP enhancements coupled with DCE and POSIX support provides users and vendors with an operating system that makes it easier to port UNIX applications to MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1.

MVS/ESA's role in an open-system environment is significantly expanded through support for POSIX interfaces, DCE enabling interoperability of applications within a heterogeneous network and increasing the portability of applications, data and skills with other environments conforming to the same open system standards. With a growing number of commercially-available POSIX and DCE conforming applications, customer application needs can be met more quickly with off-the-shelf software, thus reducing the cycle time from identification of need to providing a solution.

Much of a business' success depends on being able to provide solutions to meet customer needs. MVS/ESA can help business applications by providing a POSIX conforming platform which also includes DCE. This allows for growth of applications which require large numbers of files or large files on a single platform.

DCE and POSIX support on MVS combines the open interfaces with the robustness of MVS. This provides an easier growth path to a more robust environment for POSIX applications and Client/Server applications.

The integration of a POSIX-defined file system with existing MVS file system management services provides automated file system management capabilities which may not be available on other POSIX platforms. This allows the file owner to gain productivity by spending less time on tasks such as backup and restore on entire file systems.

OpenEdition DCE Base Services

MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 with OpenEdition DCE Base Services provides the strengths of a distributed computing environment:

  • Transparency of data and logic
  • Distributed, consistent naming service
  • Heterogeneous security integrated in execution path
  • Scalability of distributed applications
  • Interoperability and portability
OpenEdition DCE Base Services capitalizes on the traditional strengths of MVS in the network:
  • Superior reliability, availability, and serviceability
  • Superior system integrity
  • System security
  • Backup and recovery facilities
The current investment in MVS skills with respect to programming, network management, and data management is protected.

New dimensions are added to MVS:

  • Transparent access to heritage data and logic from common, industry-standard interfaces is possible from customer written servers.
  • Internationalization support for POSIX applications strengthens MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 as a worldwide product.
By marrying MVS with the flexible new technologies of the OSF Distributed Computing Environment, IBM is truly able to deliver substantial value to the customer.

Future Support by OpenEdition Services

The following functions are planned to be added to OpenEdition services in the then current release of MVS available in 1995. These functions are intended to provide additional UNIX capability for MVS/ESA.

  • XPG4 Branded Product XPG4 branding requirements are defined by the X/Open Company, Ltd. in the X/Open Portability Guide, Issue 4 A summary of the functions which are planned to be provided are:
    • An additional set of commands and utilities as defined in XPG4
    • "Raw mode" (non-canonical in POSIX terminology) application interface including a telnet daemon
    • IPC functions -- shared memory, messaging and queueing, and semaphores
    • Login directly to OpenEdition MVS Shell
    To become a branded product, OpenEdition services will conform to the test specifications defined by X/Open. In addition, IBM plans to request certification of OpenEdition MVS from X/Open upon satisfactorily passing the test specification.
  • Common Operating System API -- X/Open Specification 1170 The Common API Specification (CASPEC), is the effort by leading industry companies to define a common set of API's beyond XPG4. It is anticipated that these specifications will become accepted industry standards by 3Q94. OpenEdition MVS intends to conform to these standards. The CASPEC specification, also known as X/Open specification 1170, is planned to be supported by adding the following to OpenEdition services:
    • Additional syscalls beyond XPG4
    • Additional function as specified by specification 1170. Some key additional functions are:
      • Curses
      • DataBase Manager
      • Address Space Mapping
      • BSD Signals
      • Streams
      The complete list of functions supported will be provided in the availability announcement of OpenEdition MVS planned for
    • 1995.
  • Large File Support Support for 8 Gigabyte files is planned to be added to OpenEdition file system support.
  • NFS Client Support Support for NFS server access to the hierarchical file system is part of DFSMS/MVS Version 1 Release 2 Network File System feature. NFS client support is planned to be added to OpenEdition services via updates to the DFSMS/MVS Network File System feature to allow an OpenEdition system to access files on a UNIX workstation, another MVS system, or any remote system supporting NFS protocols.
  • Socket Applications OpenEdition provides a base for enablement of many typical UNIX network servers. The sockets support will be exploited to provide a number of common UNIX network applications. This support significantly expands the UNIX capability of OpenEdition services.
  • 3270 Data Stream Support This support allows a POSIX application to send or receive the entire 3270 data stream from a terminal. It will enable applications to use or expand their support for 3270 terminals using POSIX functions.
Note: The above statements present IBM's currently intended plans. IBM will continue to monitor business conditions and requirements and may make changes to these plans as required.

ScreenView Requirements: For more information, refer to Software Announcement 293-268, dated June 20, 1993.

OpenEdition Hardware Environment:

Terminal Interface: The extended user interface support allows existing hardware (terminals, workstations, networks, etc.) and existing telecommunications software (ACF/VTAM(TM), TCP/IP, etc.) that run on MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 to be used.

3270 Support: Most 3270 type terminals or 3270 emulators in an MVS/ESA network from which a user can interactively logon to TSO/E is supported by OpenEdition services and includes:

  • Real and emulated 3270's in an ACF/VTAM SNA network which satisfy the following.
    • The terminal must support an EBCDIC character set.
    • Minimum screen size is 24x80.
    • The terminal must be known to TSO/VTAM as a full screen device. OpenEdition services uses full screen mode.
    • The terminal must support upper and lower case characters.
    • A minimum of 12 PF keys are required.
  • UNIX workstations and other workstations in a TCP/IP network that support the TELNET 3270 (TN3270) client function. Note: Only canonical mode as defined by POSIX 1003.1 Section 7 is supported. Canonical mode defines line mode input/output to a terminal, therefore OpenEdition applications must use line mode terminal interaction.
  • The OMVS command supports customized PF keys to scroll backward/foward, display HELP, hide input typed into the command line, refresh the screen, retrieve previous commands, and enter TSO commands.
Pseudo-TTY Support: The OMVS command, in conjunction with the pseudo-tty functions, maps and transforms a 3270 TSO/E terminal interface and user externals to the POSIX 1003.1 defined terminal interface expected by POSIX compliant user processes, including the POSIX 1003.2 Shell. This mapping consists of the following:
  • Use of 3270 key sequences to emulate ASCII terminal control is supported. A set of system defined 3270 default key sequences which map to ASCII escape control values is supplied. The user can tailor the system defaults to meet individual needs.
  • Translate tables which map the 3270 data stream to a pseudo-tty device driver for both control and data are provided. Users can customize these tables to support various kinds of terminals.

Prior to availability of the MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 component, planned for December 30, 1994, the package will contain the Version 5 Release 1 BCP and the JES3 Version 5 Release 1.0 component, which is functionally equivalent to the JES3 Version 4 Release 2.1 component (FMID HJS4421), shipped with MVS/ESA SP-JES3 4.2.2 after December 27, 1991. The JES3 Version 4 Release 2.1 component was announced in Software Announcement 290-489, dated September 5, 1990. The JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 component will be a replacement.

The MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 BCP will run with the JES component shipped with the following earlier versions and releases:

    JES2                             JES3

MVS/SP-JES2 3.1.3 + PTFs MVS/SP-JES3 3.1.2 + PTFs MVS/ESA SP-JES2 4.2 + PTF MVS/SP-JES3 3.1.3 + PTFs MVS/ESA SP-JES2 4.3 + PTF MVS/ESA SP-JES3 4.2.2 (FMID HJS4421) (shipped after December 27, 1991) + PTF

JES2 and Sysplex:

Single MVS Image: Customers will be required to build a sysplex when MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 is installed. In a single system sysplex, XCF can be configured in local mode, so there is no requirement for a coupled dataset.

If a JES2 release prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 is used in conjunction with MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, a sysplex is not required.

Multiple MVS Images Using One CPC: Customers will be required to use a sysplex when MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 is installed. XCF must be configured with a couple dataset so that JES2 can keep track of member status.

If a JES2 release prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 is used in conjunction with MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, a sysplex is not required. For this type of configuration, the JES2 multi-access spool (MAS) must have seven or fewer MVS images.

For customers using multiple MVS images, MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 cannot be mixed with other levels of JES2 in the same JES2 MAS.

Multiple MVS Images Using Multiple CPCs: Customers will be required to use a sysplex when MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 is installed. A Sysplex Timer is required to synchronize time across the CPCs.

If a customer chooses to use a JES2 release prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1, a sysplex is not required. However, the JES2 MAS that is implemented cannot contain more than seven MVS images.

Staged Migration: Customers choosing to stage migration to MVS/ESA SP Version 5 by installing the MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 BCP with a JES2-level prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 5 Release 1 may specify MVS/ESA SP-JES2 Version 4 Release 3 when they order MVS/E SA SP Version 5 Release 1 through IBM Software Manufacturing CBIPO and SystemPac(R) offerings, or through feature codes listed in the Ordering Information section of this announcement.

JES3 and Sysplex:

Single MVS Image: Customers will be required to build a sysplex when MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 is installed. In building a single system sysplex, XCF can be configured in local mode, so there is no requirement for a couple dataset.

If a JES3 release prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 is used in conjunction with MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, a sysplex is not required.

Multiple MVS Images Using One CPC: Customers will be required to use a sysplex when MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 is installed. The couple dataset required by XCF must be allocated and used.

If a JES3 release prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 is used in conjunction with MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1, a sysplex is not required.

For customers using multiple MVS images, MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 cannot be mixed with other levels of JES3 in the same JES3 complex.

Multiple MVS Images Using Multiple CPCs: Customers will be required to use a sysplex when MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 is installed. A Sysplex Timer is required to synchronize time across the CPCs.

If a customer chooses to use a JES3 release prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1, a sysplex is not required.

Staged Migration: Customers choosing to stage migration to MVS/ESA SP Version 5 by installing the MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 BCP with a JES-level prior to MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 5 Release 1.1 may specify MVS/ESA SP-JES3 Version 4 Release 2.1 when they order MV S/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 through IBM Software Manufacturing CBIPO and SystemPac offerings, or through feature codes listed in the Ordering Information section of this announcement.

PLANNING INFORMATION

Migration

MVSCP Elimination: An MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 system can be IPLed only with an IODF. MVSCP definition is no longer supported. HCD provides a migration utility that can be used from an MVS/SP Version 2 system or higher to migrate existing MVSCP input data sets, as well as the related IOCP input data sets, into an IODF. An IODF created by any MVS/ESA SP Version 4 HCD can be used to IPL an MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 system.

S/390 Developers Association

A new membership program has recently been unveiled for software developers using S/390 platforms. The program is called the S/390 Developers Association. The goals of the program are to enhance communication between S/390 customers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and IBM's S/390 development organizations and to provide assistance to ISVs in obtaining the resources necessary to develop and support solutions on S/390 platforms.

A previously announced membership program "Your Connection to VM" is being combined with this new program. There is no fee for membership in the S/390 Developers Association. The S/390 Developers Association provides an online conferencing service, through TalkLink(TM), that is available to S/390 customers as well as ISVs. The section of the service available to customers contains bulletin boards, news and announcements concerning S/390 and IBM tools for the various platforms. The developers only section contains special bulletin boards, IBM internal development tools and news for developers.

The S/390 Developers Association provides additional support for developers with technical and marketing services. Technical support includes porting information, White papers with IBM views on technical topics, access to testing facilities (at a minimal fee) and special developer prices on IBM hardware and software. Marketing support provides for inclusion in S/390 product catalogs, listings in the National Solution Center Database, and software replication and distribution services from IBM Software Manufacturing. The MVS, VM and VSE development organizations will also offer special, invitational programs that provide developers with technical disclosures, early access to platform products and special marketing opportunities.

Those wishing to participate in the online service of the S/390 Developers Association should call TalkLink at 800-547-1283 to request a subscription application. Software developers who would like to join the S/390 Developers Association or would like additional information should call 800-627-8363 and request an application kit.

System Integrity

IBM will accept APARs where the installation of MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 introduces an exposure to the system integrity of MVS. Refer to Software Announcement P81-174, dated October 21, 1981. This control program is intended to run authorized.

Security, Auditability, and Control

Data security and auditability in the MVS/ESA SP Version 4 Release 3 environment are enhanced by the functions available in Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) licensed program (5740-XXH).

Security APARs: IBM will continue to accept Security APARs for MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1. Security APARs are for reporting problems in existing security mechanisms where the problem descriptions do not meet the precise definition of system integrity, but do constitute an exposure to the security of the system as a whole or to an IBM product which runs on the system. Originally announced in Software Announcement 289-581, dated October 24, 1989, this commitment is being enhanced, as follows, to accept Security APARs when the installation or use of this MVS product violates B1 criteria.

MVS B1 Support: Selected MVS/ESA products, collectively called a trusted computing base (TCB), were evaluated by the United States Department of Defense's National Computer Security Center (NCSC), found to meet the criteria for a B1 level of trusted system, and posted on the Evaluated Product List in September 1990. The following products, along with specific service, were evaluated in 1990:

  • MVS/SP-JES2 Version 3 Release 1.3
  • MVS/SP-JES3 Version 3 Release 1.3
  • MVS/DFP Version 3 Release 1.1
  • ACF/VTAM Version 3 Release 3
  • TSO/E Version 2 Release 1.1
  • RACF Version 1 Release 9
  • PSF/MVS Version 1 Release 3
For more information on the IBM MVS/ESA JES2 and JES3 Security System Packages, refer to Software Announcement 290-497, MVS/ESA Planning: B1 Security for MVS/SP Version 3 (GC28-1800), or contact your IBM representative.

MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 when running on ES/9000 systems with appropriate levels of the other TCB products, is designed to meet the B1 criteria as they were applied to the MVS/ESA TCB during the 1990 evaluation. The criteria applied were based on the Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (DOD 5200.28-STD) and included interpretations made by the NCSC and the evaluation team. The claim being made today is based solely on security analysis performed by IBM. The updated TCB has not been evaluated by the NCSC. IBM cannot predict that a B1 rating would be awarded, should an evaluation be requested and carried out. IBM will accept a Security APAR when the installation or use of MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 violates the B1 criteria.

For more information on the appropriate product levels, supported features, and limitations, refer to MVS/ESA Planning: B1 Security for MVS/ESA Version 5 (GC28-1440), which will become available at MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 1 general availability.

Note: OpenEdition services has been designed to meet the criteria for a C2 security and must be disabled in a B1 environment.

User management is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

One-Time Charge: Customers who pay a one-time charge for a licensed program receive enhancements and future releases, if any, at no additional charge. Significant new function may be offered as an optional feature and charged for separately. If a replacement program is announced and the customer elects to license the replacement program, a time-based upgrade credit may apply.

Distributed Feature One-Time Charge: Customers who pay a one-time charge for additional distributed features may copy machine- readable program material and documentation. One copy may be made for each additional distributed feature ordered.

Variable Charges: The applicable graduated one-time charge or graduated monthly license charge will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the licensed program is licensed for use.

For upgrades of one-time charge licenses to a machine in a higher group, the upgrade charge will be the difference in the current charges between the two groups. For downgrades of one-time charge licenses to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of one-time charges paid.

For upgrades or downgrades of monthly license charge licenses, the monthly license charge applicable to the higher or lower group will apply.
