Support for multiple instances of CICS address spaces for sampling requests is included.

For IMS region measurements, repeating program attributes in the S02 (Load module attributes) report are eliminated.

Additional System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) and System z Application Assist Processor (zAAP) reporting is added to permit users to determine the utilization of these processors for the sampled applications.

Support for Java™ virtual machine V5 and V6 is added.

Currency support for IBM IMS V11 and IBM CICS Transaction Server (CICS TS) V4.1 is provided.

IT simplification

The Application Performance Analyzer sample file size is reduced. A notification is sent when sampling terminates when the sample file limit is exceeded.

An installation option is added to make the sampling request description a mandatory field.

Setup is enhanced to make optional the step field to default to all steps.

The user import of sample files is now externalized so that you can move sample files from one machine to another.

Debug Tool for z/OS V10.1

Business flexibility

The Debug Tool CICS Control (DTCN) Primary Menu screen is enhanced to support both a Load Module Name resource and a Compile Unit Name resource. The combination of a Load Module Name resource and a Compile Unit Name resource provides additional granularity which helps in identifying the program you want to debug.

A RESTful HTTP access interface to read, create, update, and delete profiles in the DTCN profile repository is supported. A GUI interface allows you to manipulate the profiles from the workstation.

Debug Tool now supports debugging C and C++ programs that run in the Airline Control System (ALCS). This support is available only if you debug in remote debug mode.

The publication, The IBM Debug Tool Customization Guide now provides instructions for defining Terminal Interface Manager as an application under IBM Session Manager.

Currency support for IMS V11 and CICS TS V4.1 is provided.

IT simplification

Support is added for debugging of modules loaded from the Library Lookaside (LLA).

The CODEPAGE(ccsid) option is added to the XML option of the LIST CONTAINER and LIST STORAGE commands to improve the display of character strings on a 3270 that are encoded in alternate code pages.

The command SET MONITOR LIMIT is added so that the monitor window can display more that 1000 lines. QUERY MONITOR LIMIT will display the monitor limit setting.

Support is added for multiple concurrent updates of variable values in the monitor window.

A new command POPUP, is provided to open a Command window to improve the ability to enter a long Debug Tool command. In addition, the Command window is automatically displayed when the user enters a command continuation character or starts a multiline command. A SET POPUP command is also included to control the size of the Command window.

A new command, FINDBP, is provided which will help you easily find line, statement, and offset breakpoints in the Source object while in full-screen mode.

A new command is added, POSITION nnnn, to position to a line in the selected window.

A new CICS Screen Control Mode, using the new DTSC transaction to improve the control and management of debug sessions in an MRO environment is provided.

Set and Query IgnoreLink for CICS in remote debug mode is supported.

Automatic saving and restoring of settings and breakpoints is now supported under IMS/TM.

The EQASET transaction can now be used to associate an IMS LTERM with a TSO user ID when the Debug Tool IMS Language Environment® exit is used and the user has not signed on.

The ability to display a complex data item such as a group or a structure as a single character string is added in remote debug mode.

The LIST TITLED WSS command can now be used in the MONITOR command to place the variables defined in the Working-Storage section of a COBOL program into the monitor window.

Display of COBOL DISPLAY messages in the debug console when in remote debug mode is supported.

Enterprise PL/I %INCLUDE files and C/C++ header files support is enhanced in remote debug mode.

Support is added for On Demand Load and Capture Source for C and C++ debug side files created with the DBGLD and CDADBGLD utilities shipped with the z/OS V1.11 XLC C/C++ compiler.

Additional PARMLIB options to replace most Fault Analyzer SMP/E USERMODs are included.

File Manager for z/OS V10.1

Business flexibility

Integration of the File Manager/Base with Rational Developer for System z is enhanced so that:

  • Client template editing is provided via the Rational Developer for System z interface. You can create, update and edit templates with the equivalent function provided by the host template editor.
  • Client editing is provided via the IBM Rational Developer for System z interface that allows you to perform all host editing activities.
  • You can invoke File Manager Base host utilities from the IBM Rational Developer for System z interface.

Note: The integration enhancements with Rational Developer for System z in File Manager V10.1 require the use of Rational Developer for System z V7.6.

Unicode support is enhanced to provide the ability for the File Manager/DB2 editor to process DB2 Unicode data in native format, rather than processing the data after conversion (by DB2) to the coded character set identifier (CCSID) of the application or terminal.

Extended Access Volume (EAV) support enhancements let you better control the distribution of data on Extended Address Volumes.

File Manager external functions and batch capabilities are enhanced with FASTREXX function processing support for:

  • Packed decimal length determination. All functions that can define a packed field now can determine the length from the data.
  • System and user variables.
  • A duplication factor for character literals equivalent to REXX™ Copies function.
  • The ability to create statistics during a copy or find/change operation.
  • The ability to adjust start locations for variable format input and output files that have been coded as if the record descriptor word (RDW) was included (for example, column 5 would be column 1 of the actual data).
  • The ability to set the batch return code for compare when a given number of differences are detected.

Batch performance and functionality is enhanced so that you can now:

  • Print a number of records from a FASTREXX procedure
  • Verify whether a certain field or area of a record is composed only of certain characters
  • Take a sampling of a data set for print and copy functions by virtue of introduced include and skip record counts

IMS usability and callability enhancements include:

  • The File Manager/IMS installation options module is updated to allow the File Manager/IMS administrator to specify up to 6 Program Specification Control Block (PSB) libraries, 6 Database Description Control Block (DBD) libraries and 6 Template libraries for each IMS subsystem. The specified libraries are used as the default PSB, DBD and Template libraries for File Manager/IMS functions. The options module is also updated to specify whether or not the user can override the default PSB, DBD and Template libraries.
  • A new settings panel is included that allows you to save up to 6 PSB libraries for an IMS subsystem (when the PSB libraries for the IMS subsystem are not fixed) or displays the default PSB libraries for the IMS subsystem (when the PSB libraries for the IMS subsystem are fixed). It also allows you to save up to 6 DBD libraries for an IMS subsystem (when the DBD libraries for the IMS subsystem are not fixed) or displays the default DBD libraries for the IMS subsystem (when the DBD libraries for the IMS subsystem are fixed).
  • A new settings panel is included that allows you to save up to 6 Template libraries for an IMS subsystem (when the Template libraries for the IMS subsystem are not fixed) or displays the default Template libraries for the IMS subsystem (when the Template libraries for the IMS subsystem are fixed).
  • The PSB data set name field is removed from the Edit, Browse, Extract, Load, Print, Batch Edit, and Batch Browse entry panels. These dialogs are updated so that they use the PSB libraries specified on the new PSB and DBD Data Sets panel (when the PSB libraries for the specified IMS subsystem are not fixed) or the default PSB libraries for the IMS subsystem (when the PSB libraries for the specified IMS subsystem are fixed).
  • The DBD data set name fields are removed from the Edit, Browse, Extract, Load, Print, Batch Edit, Batch Browse, Delete/Define and Initialize entry panels. These dialogs are modified so that they use the DBD libraries specified on the new PSB and DBD data sets panel (when the DBD libraries for the specified IMS subsystem are not fixed) or the default DBD libraries for the IMS subsystem (when the DBD libraries for the specified IMS subsystem are fixed).
  • The Template data set name field is removed from the View Specification panel in the Edit, Browse and Print dialogs, the Options panel in the Batch Edit and Batch Browse dialogs, and, the Criteria/Keys Specification panel and the Create Extract Template panel in the Extract dialog. These dialogs are updated so that they use the Template libraries specified on the new Template Data Sets panel (when the Template libraries for the specified IMS subsystem are not fixed) or the default Template libraries for the IMS subsystem (when the Template libraries for the specified IMS subsystem are fixed).
  • The PSB type option field (Dynamic/Static) is removed from the Systems Settings panel.
  • When the dialog has two variants of the entry panel, the two variants of the panel are replaced with a single dialog entry panel that includes the fields from both variants. The PSB Type option field is also added to these dialog entry panels.
  • An option field is added to the dialog entry panels that gives you the option of skipping the Database Data Set Specification/Display panel.
  • Keyword support is added to the Edit and Browse functions. Keywords are included for all the data that's entered on the Edit and Browse Entry panels, so that callers of the Edit and Browse functions can bypass the Edit and Browse Entry panel.

Currency support for IMS V11 and CICS TS V4.1 is provided.

IT simplification

Data Aging is included via a a new function, MOD_DATE, to modify date fields on data sets by setting, incrementing or decrementing day or month or year values for dates stored in any number of formats. This applies to batch REXX and FASTREXX procedures and functions that support them. Most typically it is used in a copy process.

A new primary command, SQLID, is added to File Manager/DB2. The addition of the SQLID primary command enables an authorized File Manager/DB2 user to dynamically change the current SQLID value from any File Manager/DB2 processing panel. This be of most benefit to DB2 System Administrators who typically run with DB2 SYSADM authority and issue SQL statements that require the current SQLID to be set to different DB2 authids.

WebSphere MQ support enhancements include:

  • Updated security handling to ensure that security related failures are appropriately handled with new messages as required.
  • Added update and write operations on MQ queues
  • Additional line commands, added to the manager and queue list displays, that allow you to retrieve information about a MQ manager, delete a queue from the queue list and add a queue to a MQ manager.
  • Added support for utility (Create, Print, Copy, Compare) read and write access to MQ queues where QSAM is currently available

The View Load Module (VLM) and Compare Load Module (CLM) utilities in File Manager/Base are enhanced to:

  • Improve date processing on view/compare when reviewing load module reporting
  • Add relative track address (TTR) information to the load module directory list panels
  • Create link edit JCL based on the load module, CSECT information

The ability to allow allocation of GDG(+1) is added by recognizing (+1) in the DSN field, in order to create a new group entry and to treat DSN(0) in reference lists the same, instead of its absolute name.

Additional installation options that:

  • Allow you to provide defaults for VSAM edit sharing options, auxiliary data set allocation options, use File Manager editor option, recognize and interpret ISPF pack data option, compiler language and compiler options for all languages, additional print options, and output data set allocations
  • Provide an installation option to specify the SFMNMOD1 library to be used in the batch JCL skeletons
  • Change the PRINTOUT option from SYSOUT=c to PRINTDSN and add a new option to specify the output print class
  • Ensure that the HEADERPG and DATAHDR options are honored for all batch functions
  • Provide an option to control the justification of numeric fields for the Data Set Compare (DSM) utility
  • Move Trace options from the Print options panel and create new panel
  • Add the Trace data set to the Output Data Set Allocation options panel
Governance

File Manager logging and reporting is enhanced to support the following:

  • On Demand logging that forces an audit trail for an edit session and the submission of a batch job to report the audit changes after completion of the editor session. Demand logging will imply dual logging if SMF logging is also requested. Demand logging is specified in the installation options module and applies to all components of File Manager.
  • For the File Manager DB2 component, you can now define a member in SYS1.PARMLIB that contains File Manager DB2-specific configuration information. You can elect to specify auditing requirements, for the File Manager DB2 component only, using System Authorization Facility (SAF) rules defined using an external security product such as RACF®. When this option is selected, auditing requirements can be specified for individual DB2 object names and for all File Manager DB2 functions. Audit records will be written for activities that were previously not subject to audit including data definition language (DDL) statements, DB2 authorization statements, and DB2 commands. These File Manager DB2-specific enhancements provide a greater level of security and flexiblity, with respect to audit.
  • Additional options to display non-displayable data in hexadecimal format.
  • The ability to highlight changed fields on a report.

Diagnostic tracing information gathering is improved when unexpected output or an interrupt occurs. It will also separate the trace output from the function output.

The ability to secure File Manager IMS functions by subsystem ID is provided. You are now allowed to secure File Manager IMS individual, update, and/or read-only functions for a specified subsystem.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of its general availability, when used in accordance with IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM System z IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA) programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each System z IPLA product with Value Unit pricing has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly, Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for you. For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offer additional price benefits. The quantity of each System z IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as entitled license capacity. If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a System z IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to Value Units or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice/vuctool

Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

To determine the required license capacity for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditionssection.

Value Unit

Value Unit (VU) is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. VU entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement, either users or resources, for the given program. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of VUs required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The VU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with VU entitlements of another program. To understand these benefits of VU licensing, and to determine how many VUs to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

The programs in this announcement all have Value Unit-based pricing.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the 'required license capacity'. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The System z IPLA program you select.
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit.
  • The applicable terms.
  • Whether your current mainframes are full capacity or sub-capacity.

VUE001 Ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,000 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

      Translation from MSUs to Value Units (VUE001)
 
              MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
  Base          3     *  5.25             =  15.75
  Tier A       42     *   .83             =  34.86
  Tier B      130     *   .35             =  45.50
  Tier C      140     *   .26             =  36.40
  Tier D      685     *   .20             = 137.00
  
  Total     1,000                           269.51

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

VUE007 Ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units (VUE007)
 
          MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU = Value Units
Base          3   *  1.00            =    3.00
Tier A       42   *   .45            =   18.90
Tier B      130   *   .36            =   46.80
Tier C      140   *   .27            =   37.80
Tier D    1,185   *   .20            =  237.00
 
Total     1,500                         343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone during normal business hours and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Support (IAAS). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the support services provided in the base support to include technical support via telephone during normal business hours.
  • Entitles customers to future releases and versions at no additional charge. Note that the customer is not entitled to new products.

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will renew automatically annually unless cancelled by the customer.

Single version charging

To elect single version charging, you must notify and identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program, and the machine the programs are operating on.

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

http://www.software.ibm.com/ShopzSeries

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, and 35921
  • ServerPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, and 35921
  • SystemPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, and 35921
1
3592 is highest density media. Selecting 3592 will ship the fewest number of media.

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

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

  • CBPDO shipments will begin one week after general 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 terms and conditions

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The System z IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full capacity or sub-capacity

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to theOrdering information section.

5655-V52   File Manager       Execution-based
           for z/OS V10
Full-capacity mainframes

In cases where full capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution-based, z/OS-based, Full-machine-based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, visit

http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Sub-capacity mainframes

In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution-based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the System z IPLA program executes.

z/OS-based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS on the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

Reference-based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Full-machine-based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with full-machine-based terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The IBM System z Machines Exhibit (Z125-3901), or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

For more information on sub-capacity System z IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement 204-184, dated August 10, 2004.

For additional information for products with reference-based terms, System z IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in the environment the System z IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single or stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. You may have one or more different environments across the enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each System z IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment, the required license capacity of the System z IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  • That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement 198-001, dated January 13, 1998
  • Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the sysplex
Sub-capacity eligibility

To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select System z IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be System z (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS operating systems
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
  • All instances of the z/OS operating systems must be running in z/Architecture® (64-bit) mode

For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the System z Software Pricing Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for System z Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for IBM System z 890 and 800 License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract - Amendment for IBM System z9® and System z Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929). Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous System z IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the product's own execution as reported to IBM in accordance with the requirements for reporting sub-capacity utilization for products.

On/Off Capacity on Demand (CoD)

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, you must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer™ On/Off Capacity on Demand - Software (Z125-6611) must be signed prior to use.
