Description

Integrated/open access for new application development/connectivity

XML, Java, and Web services enhancements

IMS XQuery support provides access using standard XQuery expressions to IMS full-function data, including new IMS XML data. This opens IMS to the emerging market of off-the-shelf, third-party tools (for example, query generation tools for application development, business reporting, data sharing, and so on) and offers a standard shareable integration point between IMS and other industry databases. IMS XQuery is supported through the existing IMS JDBC interface. IMS XQuery support enhances IMS data integration, eases application development, and increases programmer productivity.

IMS Database Service Data Objects (SDO) extends service-oriented architecture (SOA) capabilities to IMS data in a language- and database-independent way. IMS SDO support enables read-only use of IMS data in a disconnected mode (holding no locks in the database). This provides a way of representing IMS data as industry-standard business objects, allowing IMS to transparently participate in SOA as a standard Service Component Architecture (SCA) component. This support is being provided through the IMS V10 service process.

IMS SOA Composite Business application support provides a next-generation business process to integrate J2EE resources, services, and activities (like user interventions) based on Web services with the Business Process Execution Language. This extends existing IMS transactions, including MFS, to include conversational transactions as SOA-based composite business applications using the IMS TM Resource Adapter (renamed from IMS Connector for Java) and WebSphere® tooling and runtime, maximizing re-use of IMS assets in new applications for rapid business innovation and reduced costs. Support for MFS Conversational transactions is being provided for IMS V10 through subsequent WebSphere/Rational® tool deliverables.

Integrated Connect XML Adapter support for COBOL and PL/I, together with the IMS SOAP Gateway and WebSphere Developer for zSeries® (WDz) or Rational Developer for System z™ (RDz), enables reuse of IMS applications as Web services, leveraging open standards, utilizing flexible tooling support, and providing IMS transaction interoperation with client applications independent of location, programming language, and platform. This support has also been provided through the IMS SOAP Gateway and IMS V9 service process.

IMS SOAP Gateway, a separate no-charge downloadable product, is enhanced to support the z/OS environment, PL/I applications, and Asynchronous Callout. This is in addition to its earlier support for COBOL applications and for Windows™, AIX®, and Linux™ on System z environments.

IMS Callout support enables IMS applications as clients, interoperating with business logic outside the IMS environment. It provides for asynchronous callout to an external application (for example, a Web service or a WebSphere application) through the IMS SOAP Gateway or IMS TM Resource Adapter. This support allows for better integration in an SOA environment and includes correlation mapping between the callout request and the external application, enhanced security, and assistance on destination routing by avoiding the coding of IMS DFSYPRX0 and DFSYDRU0 user exits.

IMS Java library support enhances DB2® result sets and GSAM usage. This offers the ability to return IMS data to the stored procedure client encapsulated within a DB2 result set, with the conversion to the DB2 result set handled by the Java libraries. The Java libraries are also enhanced to support GSAM databases consistent with other IMS database types, which allows all of the supported data types to be stored into and read from a GSAM database record, and fully leverages the existing Java library built-in data conversion routines.

DLIModel utility enhancements provide GSAM support and a new user interface. The DLIModel utility was enhanced to provide metadata generation support for GSAM databases. The DLIModel GUI is an Eclipse plugin that provides a user-friendly interface for viewing and generating IMS database metadata. The DLIModel utility GUI fully supports the parsing of Program Specification Blocks (PSBs) and Database Definitions (DBDs), now including GSAM, and the importing of COBOL copybooks while eliminating any need to program control statements. It generates IMS Java metadata classes, IMS XML Schemas (with new annotations for XQuery support), or DBD and PSB XMIs. These enhancements simplify IMS metadata generation, ease IMS Java and XML Database application development, and offer a visual representation of IMS databases with printing support. This can help achieve rapid application development and reduced cost of development and ownership.

XML DB mapping enhancements allow for expanded mappings between new or existing IMS databases and visualized XML documents or collections. These enhancements widen the scope of supported XML documents for new IMS databases and ease disparate data integration across the enterprise.

MFS Web support provides access to existing IMS applications from WebSphere Application Server environments, protecting your assets. MFS Web services enhancements expose attributes and extended attributed fields for Web services applications. MFS SOA Solutions, the newest MFS Web Services support, is being provided through WebSphere/Rational tools. MFS Web Enablement now includes access from WebSphere Application Server for z/OS, in addition to Windows and AIX, and adds customizable display enhancements, allowing drop-down list boxes and infopops on familiar look-and-feel 3270-style Web pages. These items have also been provided through the IMS V9 service process.

IMS TM Resource Adapter (IMS Connector for Java) enables WebSphere Application Server access to IMS applications. PL/I application support is an enhancement using Rational Application Developer tooling and WebSphere Application Servers to allow IMS PL/I applications to be enabled as Web services without IMS application changes. Additional enhancements include support for the Enterprise Metadata Discovery (EMD) API to help build wizards dynamically; Commit Mode 1/Synch Level Confirm to enhance integrity; Resume TPIPE with Alternate ClientID to resume on one client id and get output sent to a different client id; SSL Null encryption to reduce the overhead of encrypting all the data that flows over the connection, thus improving performance; and WebSphere Application Server 64-bit support for enhanced capacity. This support has also been provided for IMS V9 applications.

Additional connectivity enhancements

Multiple Systems Coupling VTAM® Generic Resources (VGR) support provides a remote IMS the ability to use a generic resource node name to communicate with an IMS within an IMS Sysplex through the MSC facility. A remote IMS can use a single MSC link definition to connect to the partner link in any of the IMSs in the IMS Sysplex. Cloned MSC links can be used across IMSs for connection to remote IMSs.

APPC enhancements provide support for timeout granularity in seconds and Local Logical Units (LUs). For LU 6.2 descriptors, you can specify a Local-LU at the descriptor level, thus providing for more flexibility.

APPC/OTMA Program Switch Without Affinity provides IMS Sysplex APPC/OTMA Synchronous Shared Queues system affinity removal for program-to-program switches. This improves flexibility in workload balancing and availability and reduces complexity. This support is being provided through the IMS V8, V9, and V10 service process.

OTMA autonomic enhancements include:

  • Callout Descriptors that identify alternate destinations and allow you to define routing information, thus eliminating the need to code OTMA routing exits to perform these tasks
  • Ability to activate message flood detection by suppressing input messages, if needed
  • The detection of wait synchpoint hangs and taking the timeout action, if needed
  • Member start/stop to suppress new input transactions and to resume the stopped member to accept new input transactions
  • Member-level security with each member having its own security level
  • Additional information on the DISPLAY commands
  • Security refresh by userid using the /SECURE OTMA command
  • Resume TPIPE enhanced with security to protect operations

Integrated Connect enhancements improve usability by providing support for Commit Mode 1 ACK Timeout, Message flood detection, and Alternate Client ID. These enhancements improve programmer productivity and connectivity in performance, capacity, availability, recovery, security, and manageability.

Additional security enhancements include:

  • RACF® error message reduction.
  • Faster RACF auditing.
  • Conversational Security enrichment items.
  • A mechanism on client input to the integrated IMS Connect function to change the password associated with the client ID. Customer-written applications will have the ability to change the client RACF password.
  • The ability to define to Integrated Connect the aging value used by OTMA within IMS for the aging value of the Accessor Control Environment Elements (ACEEs) used by RACF. The current default value is "forever."
  • RACF mixed-case passwords are supported, preserving the original password value rather than attempting to translate the password to uppercase.
  • Security Management Utility (SMU) to RACF Conversion Utility creates a set of stand-alone utilities to read and convert SMU source to comparable RACF input. This facilitates conversion from SMU to RACF. Specific SMU control statements are processed by new utilities to generate RACF control statements and to add the OPTIONS=SIGN parameter to specific TERMINAL macro specifications in Stage 1. This support was also provided through the IMS V9 service process.

These items enhance security and reduce unnecessary error messages.

Manageability through staging users to autonomic computing

Reduced system generation time/effort enhancements

Dynamic resource definition (DRD) and management enhancements simplify these activities:

  • New commands are provided to allow you to dynamically add, change, and delete certain runtime resource definitions (databases, programs, routing codes, and transactions) without having to go through the IMS system definition or online change process.
  • The Destination Creation (renamed from Output Creation) user exit (DFSINSX0) has been enhanced and can be used to create transactions for scheduling, not just queueing, along with programs.
  • IMS Restart exits are added to provide enhanced access to IMS before and after restart.
  • QUERY commands are provided to display both the definitional attributes and the status of MODBLKS resources.
  • EXPORT and IMPORT commands are provided to save and restore resource definitions to and from an external data source. This item is being provided through the IMS V10 service process.
  • MSC resources can be dynamically updated and queried.
  • The IMS TSO Single Point of Control (SPOC) has been enhanced with a new user interface that can be used to manage IMS resources.

These enhancements provide for the addition, change, and deletion of resources in IMS while minimizing disruption, simplifying operations, simplifying the installation/generation effort, increasing system control, and extending transaction scheduling.

Syntax Checker enhancements add new support and update existing support for currently supported members, and add additional proclib and field options, new panels, and new keyword display options. These enhancements simplify the installation effort.

Installation Verification Program (IVP) enhancements support new IMS functions with step-by-step and menu-driven jobs and tasks that guide users to use and explore useful sample applications. For example, Java region support is added to the standard IMS IVP environment to contain the necessary steps to configure, deploy, and run the applications. This greatly simplifies the necessary up-front work to verify that Java workload can be scheduled in an IMS-dependent region. Additional IVP support is provided for the Integrated Connect region setup and a sample application communicating with the IMS control region. IVP support is also provided for DRD, its user interface, and the SPOC Audit trail display function. These enhancements assist in reducing the installation effort.

Operations and system management enhancements

Operations Manager (OM) enhancements use the z/OS logger to provide an input/output audit trail for IMS commands entered from an SPOC. The user can configure this so each OM uses its own log or all OMs use the same merged log for all SPOC activity. These enhancements also use the SPOC to display unsolicited messages from the audit trail, use the OM to track command responses, and to provide an exit for batch utility DFSERA10 to format and print operations information saved in the z/OS logger.

Additional operations management enhancements include a batch SPOC utility to issue IMS operator commands, a REXX parser function that processes the command response in XML and returns parsed information in REXX variable, a TSO SPOC input user exit that can examine and alter the entered command, and a REXX SPOC API that provides new REXX functions to subscribe/unsubscribe to unsolicited messages. These enhancements can simplify operations management and improve output and auditability for commands entered through the SPOC.

Systems Management enhancements enable IMS to maintain global command status for databases, areas, and transactions in the IMS Resource Manager Resource Structure to be applied to new or restarting IMSs in a Sysplex that were down when the command was issued. This provides an autonomic provision of a single system image among IMSs in a Sysplex. Other enhancements allow users to:

  • Control when messages get logged to the secondary master
  • Allow users to queue messages and enter transactions from the OM API

These enhancements extend single point of operations support, simplify systems management, and provide more granular control of logging of secondary master messages.

Sysplex Serialized Program Management (SSPM) will utilize the Resource Manager (RM) to manage serial program scheduling across the IMS Sysplex in a shared queues environment so that only one iteration of a serial program is running at a time in the IMS Sysplex. This simplifies operations application flow management.

Application Control Block Library (ACBLIB) online change commit and /DISPLAY MODIFY ALL are changed to no longer treat messages on the local queues in a nonshared queue environment as work in progress for transactions indirectly affected by online change. This improves the usability of online change by increasing the chances that commit will succeed, especially for an ACBLIB-only online change.

Enterprise Workload Manager (EWLM) support provides for workload management tracking across environments, integrating IMS with the EWLM end-to-end workload management. This enhancement flows EWLM Correlators with an IMS transaction, using an enhanced version of the existing workload manager services to pass correlators back to the EWLM, thus enhancing workload balancing and easing operations. A portion of the EWLM function for managing EWLM correlators can be redirected to an IBM System z9™ Integrated Information Processor (zIIP).

Transaction Level Statistics allows users to log application accounting information at the conclusion of each unit of work (commit) with logging done on a transaction-by-transaction basis at the discretion of the user. This provides a new option for obtaining application statistics for each unit of recovery. IMS will log the new records to reflect the messages processed within a commit scope. This simplifies operations, offering more granular information.

Selectively Display System Parameters provides improved visibility of the startup parameters' values, shows only the active feature's system parameters, and shows the actual value of each parameter after reading the log. This improves system parameter visibility and can help determine actual values for optimal configurations and user response times. These enhancements ease operations, reduce customer/vendor usermods, and offer more granular information.

Serviceability enhancements

Base Primitive Environment (BPE) Trace Table enhancements provide for the contents of the BPE trace table to be written to external media to preserve them for improved serviceability and problem determination. The user will be able to set trace parameters in the BPE configuration PROCLIB member. This provides the ability to trace the system over longer periods of time and increases the likelihood of getting diagnostic data the first time with fewer re-creates. This eases operations and serviceability.

Abend Search and Notification support can reduce the time required to determine that a problem exists by providing real-time automatic e-mail notification that an event such as abnormal termination user/system abends has occurred. The e-mail notification contains links to IBM-supplied Internet resources for understanding, analyzing, and resolving problems. This function not only automatically notifies system programmers of a system failure, but also provides direct, up-to-date, real-time access to abend information and descriptions, reducing the skill level necessary to identify and find solutions to problems, thus easing problem resolution and improving availability.

Knowledge-Based Log Analysis (KBLA) enhancements provide KBLA utility support of log record changes, the KBLA ISPF environment to generate JCL to support IMS V9 and V10, and support of multiple concurrent releases of IMS. This allows concurrent KBLA access for multiple IMS levels without any setup reconfiguration, easing operations.

Additional serviceability enhancements include:

  • Dump address space selection enhanced to ensure that all needed address spaces are dumped
  • Shutdown trace to assist in analyzing problems in the shutdown process
  • Message Upgrade for DFS064 and DFS065 to include destination name, QSCD Dump and LSMB Dump formatting improvements, and improved DFSERA30 formatting of split records

These items ease problem determination and increase awareness of problems and their resolution.

Scalability in high performance/capacity/availability/recovery

DBRC enhancements

Parallel Recovery Control (RECON) Access provides an option to use Record Level Sharing for the RECON via use of the Transactional VSAM (DFSMStvs). Serialization of access to the RECON at the dataset level is replaced by concurrent processing of DBRC requests from multiple IMS systems, thereby reducing contention to the RECON data set. This provides the ability to improve transaction throughput and response time that will result from reducing or eliminating RECON contention. This strategy helps reduce or eliminate transaction response time issues, unplanned system quiesces for OLDS switches, and growth constraints. This enhances availability and recoverability in a Sysplex environment.

DBRC API enhancements allow the RECON dataset to be updated as well as read, and to secure the RECON by limiting the level of access to individual users. This further enhances the API, which was first introduced in IMS V9 to provide users with a single release-independent interface to the RECON. These enhancements provide enhanced architected access to simplify tooling and programming efforts, offering release independence, additional functionality, and enhanced usability and migration.

READONLY RECON dataset access support removes the requirement that all users have CONTROL access to the RECONs. Users can now be assigned one of three levels of access (READ, UPDATE, or ALTER). READONLY access is supported by the DBRC Utility (DSPURX00 or DSPURXRT) as well as the DBRC API.

DBRC Timestamp Precision enhancements provide full DBRC support of timestamps with microsecond precision, reducing timestamp collisions, thus increasing reliability and availability.

Database utilities and log enhancements

Image Copy 2 (IC2) enhancements include support for the fast replication capability of Data Set FlashCopy® on Enterprise Storage Servers and SnapShot on RAMAC® Virtual Array (RVA) DASD subsystems for database image copy/restore processing. Enhancements also include an improved, statement-driven interface of the SET Patch feature of DFSMSdss™. Support is provided for recording alternative DB backup methods as concurrent/fuzzy user image copies. These items speed and improve recovery by exploiting the latest storage technology and alternative/concurrent methods, and provide additional information to ease use.

Sort enhancements increase the core size available to OEM sort utilities called by IMS Change Accumulation and Prefix Resolution. The default is also changed. This allows more OEM Unit Control Blocks (UCBs) to be allocated below the 16 MB line, thus increasing the available number of sort work datasets, providing for efficiency in change accumulation and prefix resolution and improving performance.

Statistics Utilities Shared Queues support enables shared queues to be included in the Log Transaction analysis and Statistical analysis utilities, thus providing additional information for managing these environments.

Indirect List Data Set (ILDS) Rebuild Utility enhancements improve the performance of ILDS creation by avoiding Control Area (CA) and Control Interval (CI) splits, observing the VSAM free space requirements so the ILDS can be provided for reorganization, by sorting Indirect List Entry (ILE) records in data spaces and inserting them into the ILDS sequentially, and taking advantage of VSAM KSDS free space. This support improves overall recovery time for recoveries requiring the ILDS to be rebuilt and improves performance of subsequent offline reorganization reloads using the ILDS with free space as input.

Change status code GG to BA for PROCOPT GON/GOT clarifies the status code for PROCOPT GON/GOT DL/I calls against an unavailable High Availability Large Database (HALDB) partition by changing the GG status code (usually meaning pointer errors) to BA (unavailable data) for these situations. This support was also provided through the IMS V8 and IMS V9 service process.

The HALDB Online Reorganization (OLR) no automatic resume option provides an option for not resuming automatically. If OLR resumes automatically at the restart of IMS, jobs controlling the OLR could get confused. By providing an option to prevent OLR from resuming at restart, the job can resume OLR on its own. This support was also provided through the IMS V9 service process.

Fast Path (FP) enhancements

FP enhancements include improved Expedited Message Handler (EMH), increased Data Entry Database (DEDB) buffers, and availability/usability items. These items enhance performance, capacity, usability, and availability, and simplify operations.

  • FP EMH enhancements add command support to reset FP response mode for static nodes and dynamic users. This provides the capability to free up hung terminals in Fast Path Response mode without requiring an IMS restart.
  • The 64 KB DEDB buffer limit is removed. There is no longer a maximum number of buffers that can be defined for the DEDB buffer pool.
  • Batch interface support for the IMS DEDB Randomizer Interface adds a caller environment field to the Randomizer Extended Call Interface (XCI) parameter list. This removes the need to access IMS control blocks using registers and distinguishes between an online and a batch caller to the randomizer.
  • Additional enhancements for DEDB users are the ability to start the DEDB and all of its areas with a single command and an option for not unloading the randomizer when /DBR DB is used. This eliminates the need to start the areas of a DEDB individually and improves ECSA usage.
  • For Virtual Storage Option (VSO) users, automatic compression of the SVSO private pool at the XRF alternate is provided.
  • The Sequential Dependent Segment (SDEP) utilities (SCAN and DELETE) function QUITCI is enabled as a system default through a keyword specified in a DFSVSMxx member. This enables a VSPEC reference to automatically engage the existing SDEP utility function QUITCI, which was previously invoked only when specified as an SDEP utility JCL SYSIN Control Statement.

Multiple Systems Coupling enhancements

MSC bandwidth enhancements use improved blocking technology to improve performance response times for transaction and output message throughput. Enhancements also allow for even larger link buffers with dynamic change of buffer sizes, inclusion of responses in the buffer, and sending it all with a single send/write. Statistics are provided to determine performance and make adjustments. These enhancements offer more efficiency and better hardware utilization, improve performance, require fewer links, and make this environment easier to manage.

Additional performance/capacity/availability enhancements

Virtual Storage Constraint Relief enhancements provide a new option to move blocks from CSA to 31-bit storage, allowing CICS® and Open Database Access (ODBA) applications to use the larger PSBs without putting further pressure on below-the-line storage. This provides increased capacity.

Large sequential data set enhancements support z/OS changes to remove the size limit of 64 KB tracks per volume for sequential data sets for BSAM, QSAM, and EXCP. This reduces the need to use multiple volumes for single datasets and relieves capacity restrictions.

ACBLIB Member Online Change (OLC) provides for individual ACBLIB members to be added or changed (though not deleted) without a library switch, which earlier was required for a full OLC. Only the resources associated with the change will be quiesced. This function coexists with existing full library switch OLC capability. This ACBLIB function makes online change for ACBLIB more usable and enhances availability.

Application Control Block generation (ACBGEN) 31-bit enhancements utilize storage above the line to address problems with insufficient storage below the line that might occur when building an ACB with a large number of Program Communication Blocks (PCBs). PSBs can now have 2,500 PCBs, thereby increasing capacity and availability.

Display Active enhancements make the status information for a problem-causing region more readily accessible, thus reducing outage time and improving availability. These items enhance the /DISPLAY ACTIVE command region status information display to include support for a number of additional region states for abnormal dump and termination. These items are also being provided through the IMS V9 service process.

Product positioning

IMS, the leading database manager and transaction server in the industry, is critical to your business. Exclusive to the z/OS platform, IMS V10 complements DB2 and WebSphere servers for database and transaction management. All of these are strategic IBM products and continue to be enhanced.

IMS Database Manager utilizes hierarchical organization technology, whereas DB2, Oracle, and desktop systems utilize relational database technology. Hierarchical and relational databases have each continued to grow with their specific characteristics and different roles to play. Hierarchical is best used for mission-critical work and for work that requires the utmost in performance. Relational is best used for decision support.

Hierarchical databases can offer a significant performance edge over relational databases when queries are known beforehand. Query optimization for relational databases ensures good performance where the query is not known in advance. Each type is best at what it does. The products supporting these technologies are enhanced to address the different application requirements and are continuing to overlap more and more in their capabilities. However, the product originally designed for a particular capability will inherently be the best.

Relational and hierarchical technology can work together for optimum solutions. Users can efficiently store operational data in hierarchical form, which can be accessed easily by their favorite relational decision support tools, with minimal impact on the production hierarchical data. IMS data can be accessed directly or propagated and replicated with relational data for summarizing, enhancing, and mining. IBM provides standard application interfaces for accessing IMS as well as other data. Both relational and hierarchical IMS data can be most efficiently accessed, together or independently, using the IMS Transaction Manager and WebSphere servers.

IBM continues to invest in providing these complementary solutions. Note that most IMS customers also have DB2.

IMS Transaction Manager and WebSphere servers are both strategic application managers and are enhanced to take advantage of each other. They each have inherently different characteristics. IMS is more efficient in application management, data storage, and data access but applies strict rules for this access. WebSphere makes it easier to serve the Web and integrate data that may have been less defined in advance. Thus, they play different roles in the enterprise. Customers are using both application managers — WebSphere for newer Web-based applications and IMS for more mission-critical high-performance/high-availability and low-cost/low-transaction applications and data.

IMS, Rational, and WebSphere products together have been providing tools to make this combination an optimum environment. Using IMS TM Resource Adapter, WebSphere and Rational development tooling can develop Web applications that can serve the Web and easily access existing or new mission-critical IMS applications. Using the IMS DB Resource Adapter and IMS Open Database Access, WebSphere applications can also access IMS DB data directly.

IBM demonstrates its commitments to you by continuing to enhance IMS. Current investments have:

  • Substantially improved database availability
  • Established open access to IMS transactions
  • Extended Parallel Sysplex® systems support

Technical information

Hardware requirements

Processors: IMS V10 operates on 64-bit IBM processors capable of running z/OS® V1.7, or later.

Direct access devices: Both the binder work data set SYSUT1 (during the bind of the IMS VTAM® control blocks load monitoring module) and the SDFSRESL must reside on a device that supports a record size of 18 KB, or greater. IMS Database Image Copy 2 (IC2) utility (DFSDMT0) concurrent copy support requires concurrent copy-capable DASD controllers. IC2 Fast Replication support requires either the FlashCopy® feature of the IBM Enterprise Storage Server™ (ESS) or the Snapshot feature of the IBM RAMAC® Virtual Array (RVA) storage system. For all other system libraries and working storage space, any device supported by the operating system is allowed.

Software requirements

IMS V10 operates under z/OS V1.7 configurations, or subsequent versions, releases, and modification levels, unless otherwise stated, and requires the following minimum version, release, or modification levels:

  • z/OS V1.7 (5647-A01) with DFSMSdfp™ (a base element of z/OS V1.7)
  • RACF® (included in a separately orderable Security Server feature of z/OS V1.7), or equivalent, if security is used
  • IBM High-Level Assembler Toolkit (5696-234), a separately orderable feature of z/OS

IMS V10 also operates in a virtual machine under control of z/OS V1.7 and is intended for use in a customer program development, testing, and non-XRF production environment, with some restrictions.

IMS Parallel Recon Access requires z/OS DFSMStvs, a separately orderable feature of z/OS V1.7. Special bids will be considered for IMS customers using the Parallel Recon function, who do not already have DFSMStvs, to acquire DFSMStvs for use restricted to IMS.

IMS DB Image Copy 2 DFSMS fast replication support requires z/OS V1.8.

IMS V10 Integrated Connect XML Adapter support, used with the IMS SOAP Gateway, requires WebSphere® Developer for zSeries® (WDz) V7.0 or Rational® Developer for System z™ (RDz) V7.1. For Web services use with IMS SOAP Gateway, two limited usage licenses of WDz are being provided for each license of IMS V10 while also requiring IMS SOAP Gateway for this support of Web services. Terms and conditions are outlined in the WDz licensing. WDz licenses are provided, along with the IMS SOAP Gateway, through the Integration Suite link at

The IMS ETO feature requires the IMS TM feature.

IMS/DB2® Coordinated Disaster Recovery Support requires the IMS V10 Remote Site Recovery (RSR) Recovery Level Tracking (RLT) feature.

The IMS RSR RLT feature requires either the IMS TM or the IMS DB feature.

The IMS RSR DLT feature requires the IMS RSR RLT and IMS DB features.

IMS V10 is written in High Level Assembler, PL/X, C, and Java™.

Compatibility: IMS V10 is upwardly compatible from previous versions, allowing existing applications and data to be used without change. Migration and coexistence support is provided for IMS V8 and V9 with V10. Review the Preventative Service Planning information and the IMS V10 Planning Guide for further details.

IMS V8 was the last release to support the IMS V5 SDEP CI format.

IMS V9 was the last release to support the Security Maintenance Utility. Customers using SMU should migrate to RACF or an equivalent product.

IMS V9 was the last release that the MSC user routing exits DFSCMTR0, DFSCMLR0, DFSCMPR0, and DFSCNPRT0 may be used. DFSMSCE0 must be used in IMS V10.

IMS V9 was the last release to support the Basic Telecommunications Access Method (BTAM). Customers using BTAM should migrate to Virtual Telecommunications Access Method (VTAM) or Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). User code or tools dependent on BTAM should migrate to VTAM or TCP/IP.

IMS V9 was the last release to support the user message exits HWSIMSO0 and HWSIMSO1. Customers using these exits should migrate to HWSSMPL1.

IMS V10 is the last release of IMS in which the IMS information will be available in BookManager® format. The IMS information continues to be available online (including the diagnosis information) as PDF files and in XHTML in the Information Management Software for z/OS Solutions Information Center at

You can also purchase hardcopy books containing the IMS V10 information at the IBM Publications Center at

Performance considerations: A single IMS runs over 22,000 transactions per second (two billion transactions per day) with database update.

  • With IMS V10, the IBM performance group has been achieving transaction rates of 22,372 transactions per second (tps) with database update using a single IMS control region running on a single IBM System z9™ Enterprise Model S54 Mainframe (Type 2094, Model S54) at just 55.54% CPU utilization of an 8 CP LPAR.
  • With the latest IMS V10 Multiple Systems Coupling link performance enhancements and increased limits of the message buffer size range of 160 to 32689 bytes up to 1024 to 65536 bytes, MSC performance across the board for MSC Channel to Channel (CTC), MSC Main Storage to Main Storage (MTM), and MSC VTAM have shown improvements (using an IBM eServer® zSeries 990 Type 2084 Model C24) of up to an average of 60% reduction in message send and receive time, when comparing messages sent across MSC with a buffer size of 4 KB compared to 64 KB.
  • Improvements with IMS V10 Fast Path Shared Expedited Message Handling queue capability demonstrated an average of 6% Internal Throughput Rate improvement using an IBM eServer zSeries 990 Type 2084 Model C24.
  • Using the z990 processor and the IBM DS8000™ (2107-921), IMS reached 82 MB/second logging bandwidth. This shows that IMS scales up to large logging requirements for high-stress IMS activity such as MSC and Shared Queues.
  • These performance tests demonstrate that nothing can match the performance of IMS and System z in transaction rates and database access.

zSeries Usage Pricing (Usage License Charge) Basic License: To order a basic license, specify the appropriate program and feature number, if required, for asset registration. Specify the applicable S/390® and zSeries Usage Pricing feature. Also, specify the feature number of the desired distribution medium.

Charges will be based upon the peak MSUs. Usage reported between thresholds of features 1, 2, or 3, will be rounded up to the next MSU level. Above 1.0 MSU, usage will be rounded to the nearest whole MSU. For example, 2.4 MSUs would round to 2.0 MSUs for pricing, and 2.5 MSUs would round to 3.0 MSUs for pricing.

The customer pricing will be determined by selecting either:

Feature 1  (if usage is below 0.25 MSU)
Feature 2  (if usage is between 0.26 and 0.50)
Feature 3  (if usage is between 0.51 and 1.0)
 
Feature 3+ (# MSUs from 2-11 times the charge associated with
           feature number 4) + (# MSUs from 12-44 times the
           charge associated with feature number 5) +
           (# MSUs from 45-78 times the charge associated with
           feature number 6) + (# MSUs above 78 times the charge
           associated with feature number 7, if applicable)

Examples for ordering: A customer with a measured usage (from the IBM Measured Usage report) of 0.3 MSU would:

  • Order quantity 1 of the 0.26 to 0.5 MSU base feature

A customer with 6.6 MSUs (from the IBM Usage report) would:

  • Be rounded up to 7.0 MSUs
  • Order quantity 1 of the "0.51 to 1.0 MSU" base feature
  • Order quantity 6 of the Level A 1 MSU feature

A customer with 15 MSUs (from the IBM Usage report) would:

Customization options: Select the appropriate feature numbers to customize your order to specify the delivery options desired. These features can be specified on the initial or MES orders.

Example: If publications are not desired for the initial order, specify feature number 3470 to ship media only. For future updates, specify feature number 3480 to ship media updates only. If, in the future, publication updates are required, order an MES to remove feature number 3480; then, the publications will ship with the next release of the program.

Customized offerings

Product deliverables are shipped only via Customized Offerings (for example, CBPDO, ServerPac, SystemPac®).

CBPDO and ServerPac are offered for Internet delivery, where ShopzSeries product ordering is available. Internet delivery of ServerPac may help improve automation and software delivery time. For more details on Internet delivery, refer to the ShopzSeries help information at

Media type for this software product is chosen during the customized offerings ordering process. Based on your customer environment, it is recommended that the highest possible density tape media is selected. Currently offered media types are:

  • CBPDOs — 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 3592*
  • ServerPacs — 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 3592*
  • SystemPacs — 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 3592*
*
3592 is highest density media. Selecting 3592 will ship the fewest number of media.

Once a product becomes available, it will be included in the next ServerPac and SystemPac monthly update.

Production of software product orders will begin on the planned availability date.

  • CBPDO shipments will begin one week after planned availability.
  • ServerPac shipments will begin two weeks after inclusion in ServerPac.
  • SystemPac shipments will begin four weeks after inclusion in SystemPac due to additional customization and data input verification.

Sub-capacity charges for VWLC products

Sub-capacity charges for VWLC products are based on product LPAR utilization capacity. Product LPAR utilization capacity for a VWLC product is the highest number of MSUs utilized by the combined LPARs in which a VWLC product runs concurrently during a reporting period. The number of MSUs is based on the highest observed rolling four-hour average utilization used by the combination of the relevant LPARs during the reporting period. Refer to 200-354 , dated October 3, 2000, 201-258 , dated September 11, 2001, and 202-105 , dated April 30, 2002, for additional details on IBM Workload License Charges.

Sub-capacity charges terms and conditions

zSeries software charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible VWLC products apply when z/OS is running in z/Architecture™ (64 bit) mode on an IBM eServer zSeries 900, no other MVS™ based operating system is licensed to that server and the required information is provided by the customer in accordance with the applicable terms.

Sub-capacity charges for a VWLC product is based on the utilization of the LPARs where/when the product executes. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for VWLC products, the customer is required to:

  • Sign and abide by the terms of the Attachment for IBM System z Workload License Charges — Pre-ILM (Z125-6516).
  • Obtain the latest version of the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool
  • Install any VWLC product and IBM eServer zSeries 900 Licensed Internal Code (LIC) service required for sub-capacity charging. Required service will be listed on the WLC Web site
  • Collect SMF data as required by the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool. Retain the collected SMF data for a period of not less than six months.
  • Use the IBM provided Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool to process the collected SMF data. The Sub-Capacity Report produced by the tool is used to determine required license capacity for the VWLC products. Required license capacity is determined based on the largest MSU value of a VWLC product running concurrently in all LPARs during the reporting period. IBM reserves the right to request the system data that supports these product defined capacity values for a period of up to six months after the data was collected.
  • Provide an initial Sub-Capacity Report to begin to receive the benefits of less than full machine capacity charges. Sub-capacity charging will follow submission of a Sub-Capacity Report. There will be no retroactive application of sub-capacity charges.
  • Submit Sub-Capacity Reports monthly.
  • Submit Sub-Capacity Reports for all VWLC products with complete data for the entire reporting period to the e-mail address and by the date specified in the current IBM System z Workload License Charges Exhibit (Z125-6324) and on the zSeries Software Pricing Web site

    Sub-Capacity Reports that reflect a changed product defined capacity will be considered to be orders placed by the customer without further action on the customer's part and IBM is authorized to make any resulting billing increase or decrease. To place an order for a new license or to discontinue licenses, move licenses between machines, report a hardware model upgrade, or enable or disable product features, the customer must contact IBM or their IBM Business Partner.

  • Configure machine to send weekly Transmit System Availability Data (TSAD) to IBM via the IBM eServer zSeries 900 Remote Support Facility (RSF). If the machine cannot connect via the RSF, provide this TSAD via an alternate means documented in the z/OS publication Planning for Workload License Charges at
