IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler V8.5.1 provides robust enhancements in the graphical user interface (GUI) and the engine infrastructure levels.
Completing the effort started three years ago, the Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console now offers rich visual representations of jobstream objects. A graphical layout depicts jobstreams, job dependency nets, or even entire portions of the plan into interactive views that facilitate an intuitive understanding of the definitions and an easy modification which is designed to help you minimize the risk of mistakes.
In addition, at the infrastructure level, all the functions provided by the Tivoli Dynamic Workload Broker are now embedded right into IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler.
If you want to introduce more flexibility in your infrastructure, you will have the capability to progressively introduce Dynamic Scheduling in your environment with IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler. IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler V8.5.1 provides several ways to translate a static load into a dynamic load, either through the existing way of creating workloads on a dynamic infrastructure, or through the use of template agents which will map to defined characteristics in the network.

IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler V8.5.1 takes another important step in the consolidation of the product role as the backbone for enterprise scheduling.
IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler V8.5.1 introduces a new component, the Tivoli Workload Scheduler Agent with Dynamic Scheduling capabilities, that is designed to help bring both resiliency and optimization to the execution of workload. By implementing resource-based scheduling, Dynamic Scheduling Agent provides a simple software high-availability mechanism that can virtually seamlessly integrate into larger high-availability infrastructure.
The same resource-based scheduling provides an automatic optimization mechanism in an effort to help raise the server utilization rate in most every circumstance, extending the simple requirement of average server utilization rate into more advanced fields such as priority pool, automatic provisioning request, and energy consumption optimization in the context of workload automation.
The Tivoli Workload Scheduler Agent with Dynamic Scheduling capability offers a full function executor with the possibility to do variable substitution in the environment variables. Dynamic Scheduling infrastructure has the possibility to keep the script centrally instead of expecting them to be present on the final server machine.
IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler V8.5.1 provides a robust graphical Web-based graphical user interface (GUI). A graphical layout view is provided for jobstream and job elements, both on the model and on the plan.
In the model part, the graphical panel is tightly integrated into the Workload Editor, with the possibility to quickly switch between graphical and non-graphical views. An additional impact view spanning multiple jobstreams, and a jobstream-based graphical view over large portions of the whole plan complete this feature with possibilities that were never reached before.
The new graphical views enable development and operational teams to work in an integrated way and to grasp complex situation in a very short time. These teams have, at hand, a comprehensive tool that covers virtually all the common usage scenario of overview, drill for explanation, and rapid situation correction.
The new Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console also includes numerous customization points where solutions can be built to help satisfy the most demanding needs. The new features of Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console will help make this a mainstream interface.
In addition to these enhancements, you get product compliance with the FIPS 140-2 standard for US security requirements on cryptographic modules. Compliance with FIPS 140-2 is not mandatory but can be reached through feature activation.

|IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing|
Tivoli software products are priced using Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-Based Pricing system is based upon the Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model, which uses a managed-environment approach -- whereby price is determined by what is managed rather than the number and type of product components installed.
For example, all servers monitored with Tivoli's monitoring product (IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other Tivoli products may manage clients, client devices, agents, network nodes, users, or other items, and are licensed and priced accordingly.
Unlike typical systems management licensing models that require entitlements of specific software components to specific systems, the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model provides the customer flexibility to deploy its Tivoli software products within its environment in a manner that can address and respond to the customer's evolving architecture. That is, as the architecture of a customer's environment changes, the customer's implementation of Tivoli software can be altered, as needed, without affecting the customer's license requirements (as long as the customer does not exceed its entitlements to the software).
Under Enhanced Value-Based Pricing, licensing and pricing of server-oriented applications are determined based upon the server's use in the customer's environment. Typically, such applications are licensed and priced in a manner that corresponds to each installed and activated processor core of the server managed by the Tivoli application to help correlate price to value while offering a simple solution.
Tivoli products priced by processor value units (PVUs) participate in the Passport Advantage sub-capacity license terms. PVU Sub-capacity licensing lets the customer license an eligible software product for less than the full processor core capacity of a server or group of servers. It provides the licensing granularity needed to leverage various multi-core chip and virtualization technologies. Further information on PVU Sub-capacity licensing can be found on the Passport Advantage licensing website.
Enhanced Value-Based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC and UNIX and Microsoft® Windows and Intel technologies, in order to simplify the customer's licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing do not differentiate between non-System z server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to System z® and other host servers as well.
IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology
An engine is also referred to as a central processor (CP) or processor. Engines for traditional workloads are called General Purpose CPs. Engines for Linux workloads are called Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines or Linux-only engines. Engines for Coupling Facility workloads are called Integrated Coupling Facility (ICF) engines.
IBM Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL)
This optional facility enables additional processing capacity exclusively for Linux workload, with no effect on the model designation of a System z or OS/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM IFL will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS', OS/390, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems or applications. There is, as indicated, a charge associated with the IFL, and there may also be a charge for applications that run on the IFL.
The IFL may be dedicated to a single Linux-mode logical partition or it may be shared by multiple Linux-mode logical partitions. Installations should note that the Linux workspace enabled by this facility will not support any of the S/390® traditional operating systems (OS/390, TPF, VSE, or VM). Only Linux applications or Linux operating in conjunction with the Virtual Image Facility, an environment that operates within a logical partition or in native S/390 mode and provides the capability to create multiple Linux images, is supported by the IBM S/390 IFL.
Processor Value Unit
The Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) for PVUs are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by processor vendor, brand, type and model number at
- That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer or
- That is activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer; in each case, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor cores can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.xx
Standby or backup systems
For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire other licenses or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.
As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes.
Cold: A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.
Warm: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.
Hot: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlements for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.
Doing work includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data, or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch-over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.
In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files or transactions, maintaining a heartbeat, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource,), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.
A Value Unit (VU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Value Unit entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement, for example MSUs, users, engines, and tape drives for the given software. licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of Value Units required for licensee's environment as specified in the specific program terms. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with other Value Unit entitlements of another program. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the Processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, you may receive discounted pricing based on their total volume of eligible products, across all IBM brands, acquired worldwide. The volume is measured by determining the total Passport Advantage points value of the applicable acquisitions. Passport Advantage points are only used for calculating the Entitled Passport Advantage discount.
To determine the required IBM Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage, the IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Model applies. The customer's environment is evaluated on a per-product basis.
Use the following two-step process to determine the total Passport Advantage points value:
- Analyze your environment to determine the number of charge units for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determine by that analysis.
- Order the Passport Advantage part numbers. A Passport Advantage point value, which is the same worldwide for a specific part number regardless of where the order is placed, is assigned to each IBM Tivoli product part number. The Passport Advantage point value for the applicable part number, multiplied by the quantity for that part number, will determine the Passport Advantage points for that IBM Tivoli product part number. The sum of these Passport Advantage points determines the Passport Advantage point value of the applicable IBM Tivoli product authorizations which then may be aggregated with the point value of other applicable Passport Advantage product acquisitions to determine the total Passport Advantage points value.
The discounted pricing available through Passport Advantage is expressed in the form of Suggested Volume Prices (SVPs), which vary depending on the SVP level. Each SVP level is assigned a minimum total Passport Advantage point value, which must be achieved, in order to qualify for that SVP level.
Media packs and documentation packs do not carry Passport Advantage points and are not eligible for SVP discounting.
For additional information on Passport Advantage, refer to the following
The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:
- License and Software Maintenance 12 Months - This is the product authorization with maintenance to the first anniversary date.
- Annual Software Maintenance Renewal - This is the maintenance renewal for one anniversary that applies when a customer renews their existing coverage period prior to the anniversary date at which it expires.
- Software Maintenance Reinstatement 12 months - This is for customers who have allowed their Software Maintenance to expire, and later wish to reinstate their Software Maintenance.
- Media packs - These are the physical media, such as CD-ROMs, that deliver the product's code.
- Documentation packs - These contain printed documentation such as the User's Guide and Release Notes.
- Custom Build Registration - This is used with products that have and IBM System z component. Ordering this part number results in a process to enable the customer to receive the System z code via the z/OS® Customized Offerings packaging techniques, that is, ServerPac, SystemPac®, or the Custom Build Product Delivery Option (CPBDO).
The following examples are provided to illustrate the customer's licensing requirements.
References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit based, with the exception of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of Value Units required per processor core will depend on the processor type. For more information, refer to the Value Unit definition in the IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required per processor core, refer to the Processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site
References to all other non-processor-based metrics do represent the actual number of entitlements required, unless other designated measurements are referenced or unless otherwise specified.
The following customer network applies to all of the examples to enable the reader to see where products tend to manage something less than the entire environment. The customer's environment includes:
Pricing example: The following customer network (referred to as the core environment) applies to all of the examples to enable the reader to see where products tend to manage something less than the entire environment. The customer's overall core environment includes:
- 20 uniprocessor cores
- 65 2-way servers
- 12 4-way servers
- One 8-way server
- One 12-way server with two virtual or logical partitions
- One 14-way server
- One 16-way Sun Ultra server with two 8-way physical partitions (only one of which is managed by IBM Tivoli applications)
- One 24-way server
- One z800 server with two uniprocessor IFLs running Linux (also known as Linux on System z)
- Note: Linux on System z offerings may not be available for all Tivoli products. This licensing example assumes such availability. Linux on System z offerings have distinctly orderable part numbers in Passport Advantage, which should be used when ordering entitlements for IFLs running Linux. If pricing products without a Linux on System z offering, you should exclude the z800 server entitlement requirement indicated below.

|IBM Electronic Services|
IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.
The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.
The Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
