Overview
Bottom rule

IBM InfoSphere Optim Configuration Manager for DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows V2.1 offers centralized management of database and client configurations, based on IBM DB2 technology, and is designed to manage data more effectively and efficiently. Greater availability is delivered through DB2 enhancements such as online and automated database reorganization. In addition, the increased scalability and the ability of DB2 to leverage the latest in server technology helps deliver increased performance of backup and recovery processes. Additionally, database administrators are now able to track the configuration changes to the applications data clients or servers that could be the root cause of a sudden performance degradation or outage of a production application.

Use InfoSphere Optim Configuration Manager for DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows V2.1 to:

  • Discover enterprise data assets using information gleaned from database application clients
  • Centralize client connection definitions to improve manageability
  • Leverage client definition as a central registry for database connectivity with IBM InfoSphere and Optim tools
  • Maintain appropriate configuration of data servers and data clients such that application performance and availability objectives are met and sustained

InfoSphere Optim Configuration Manager has the following key features:

  • Discover client information for databases, such as host name, IP address, user ID, client version information, and more. In addition, it helps with license compliance checking when used with DB2 Connect™ V9.7 FixPack 5.
  • Define official connection definitions for databases, such as database location and database driver properties.
  • Modify properties of deployed database clients to improve database transaction performance, to help enforce security and privacy controls, allocate data clients amongst data servers for desired workload balance, and redirect data clients to connect to a different data server.
  • Track client access to data servers.
  • Track changes of database and client configurations to help determine the root cause for performance degradation or outage of a production application.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the webpage below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
  • Express® and workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies. The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM express and middleware programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.
