Sterling Control Center is licensed on a reference-based, licensing model that is based on the monitored product. For example, if you monitor Sterling Connect Direct and it is licensed under the Simultaneous Session charge metric, then Sterling Control Center must also be licensed to use the Simultaneous Session charge metric.

QuickFile

The new UVU charge metric for Sterling Control Center works in conjunction with the recently introduced UVU charge metric for QuickFile. The UVU charge metric replaces the Authorized User charge metric used by QuickFile and Sterling Control Center.

WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition and WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer

New functionality enables Sterling Control Center monitoring for WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition and WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer.

The new Client Device charge metric works in conjunction with the existing Sterling Control Center Processor Value Unit (PVU) charge metric to provide full licensing for WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition and WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer.

User Value Unit (UVU)

UVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. UVU Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number and type of users for the given program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of UVUs required for licensee's environment as specified in the program specific table. The UVU entitlements are specific to the program and type of user and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with UVU entitlements of another program or type of user. Refer to the program specific UVU table.

Client Device

Client Device is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Client Device is a single-user computing device or special-purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistants, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Client Device that runs, provides data to, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every other computer or server on which the program is installed.

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage . It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
