Description

IBM Tools for Database Administration

IMS Batch Backout Manager for z/OS, V1 helps you manage DLI application abends and improves database availability.

When an IMS batch DLI application abend occurs, two actions must be taken:

  • Close the current batch SLDS
  • Perform batch backout

Until these actions are completed, databases remain unavailable and, for data sharing environments, IRLM locks remain held, preventing other applications from accessing the data. Usually these steps are performed manually requiring time to react to the initial abend by preparing JCL and submitting the log close and batch backout jobs. When these steps are executed automatically database outages are reduced.

When an IMS batch DLI application abends IMS Batch Backout Manager automatically, it:

  • Allocates dynamically an interim batch SLDS for the log close
  • Closes the interim batch SLDS
  • Allocates dynamically the new batch SLDS required for batch backout
  • Performs the batch backout

In addition, IMS Batch Backout Manager forces:

  • Allocation of batch SLDS for jobs with no logs allocated (by specific or generic job name)
  • DBRC=Y (or DBRC=N) for IMS batch systems not generated with DBRC=FORCE (by specific or generic job name)

IMS Database Control Suite for z/OS, V2.2 brings together IMS database tools and utilities into an integrated suite that contains all the functions necessary to centrally maintain and manage the IMS databases.

Highlights are:

  • Substantial performance improvements during the GENJCL process
  • Improved usability and productivity, since the Build process during which JCL skeletons for utilities are built is no longer required
  • A new Index Recovery job used with all supported releases of IMS Index Builder for z/OS
  • A new Image Copy Recovery job used with all supported versions of IMS Image Copy Extensions for z/OS
  • The ability to generate JCL to execute the IMS Database Image Copy 2 Utility (DFSUDMT0)
  • An ISPF interface to IMS High Performance Change Accumulation Utility for z/OS
  • A new user-friendly multi-functional DBRC user interface
  • Reduction in work data set requirements results in less storage management overhead

IMS Database Control Suite, V2.2 helps integrate the latest release of the following IMS tools:

  • IMS Image Copy Extensions
  • IMS High Performance Unload
  • IMS High Performance Load
  • IMS High Performance Prefix Resolution
  • IMS Index Builder
  • IMS High Performance Pointer Checker
  • IMS Database Repair Facility
  • IMS Library Management Utilities
  • IMS High Performance Change Accumulation Utility

IMS Index Builder for z/OS, V2.3 helps you simplify index recovery and maintenance, reduces index maintenance time, and eliminates the need to image copy index databases. IMS Index Builder gives you an easy-to-use, one step procedure for maintaining primary and secondary indexes.

Highlights are:

  • Creates separate address spaces for sorting index records.
  • Recognizes index records having duplicate keys and writes the duplicate keys to a SYSOUT data set.
  • When building multiple, concurrent secondary indexes, IMS Index Builder will not terminate the run if one or more indexes encounter an error, unless all indexes are in error. IMS Index Builder will attempt to continue running with the indexes that are not in error.
  • When building a primary index, the index can be empty or not empty.
  • Supports building IMS HALDB primary indexes.

IBM Database Tools for Replication and Recovery

Application Recovery Tool for IMS and DB2 Databases is the new name of DB2 Recovery Manager for z/OS. The new name better describes the functions of the product and makes it clear that services are provided both for IMS and DB2 applications.

The corresponding Subscription and Support product is also renamed. Application Recovery Tool for IMS and DB2 Databases Subscription and Support is the new name of DB2 Recovery Manager Subscription and Support.

Application Recovery Tool for IMS and DB2 Databases, V1.2 provides a roll up of service plus enhancements for DB2 and IMS applications.

  • Enhancements for DB2 applications:
    • DB2 V7 is supported.
    • Index copies and objects with the DEFINE NO option introduced in DB2 V6.1 are supported.
    • The parameter list IX has been added to the DRMFIC and DRMRECOV functions.
    • The parameter RECOVIX has been added to the DRMRECOV function.
    • The parameter IXALL (Y/N) has also been added to the DRMFIC function.
  • Enhancement for IMS applications:
    • The High Availability Large Databases (HALDB) of IMS V7 are supported. The parameter HALDB (Y/N) has been added to all IMS related functions.
    • IMS SYSPLEX data sharing is supported. The new member IMSDSGS has been added to the parmlib.

DB2 DataPropagator for z/OS, V8 includes the following enhancements:

  • A new user interface is provided. The user interface for previous DataPropagator releases was the general purpose DB2 Control Center interface. A new Replication Center User Interface is tailored to DataPropagator.
  • The Capture and Apply programs have improved flexibility and availability and support ARM in the z/OS environment. In addition:
    • Capture provides support for:
      • Enhanced signaling
      • Greater control over capture and recapture granularity
      • More flexibility in setting up your operational environment
    • Apply provides support for:
      • More frequent commits
      • Replicating changes to target-key columns
      • Starting the Apply program so that it allows for referential integrity on some user-copy and point-in-time target tables
  • The ASNLOAD exit routine and the Replication Analyzer program have been improved and tailored for DB2 DataPropagator V8.
  • Performance and concurrency improvements include:
    • Fewer joins between replication tables.
    • Use of load utility enhancements to allow faster full refreshes of target tables.
    • The ability for multiple Capture programs to concurrently read from the same DB2 log, data sharing group log, or journal.
    • The ability for DB2 log read to run concurrently with pruning.
  • A Replication Alert Monitor that supplies automated monitoring with e-mail notification for the Capture and Apply programs.
  • The ability for you to use status commands to query the status of the Capture, Apply, and Monitor programs on demand.
  • A new trace facility with compact output can be stopped and started independently of Capture and Apply execution.

IMS DEDB Fast Recovery for z/OS, V2.2 provides you with a fast alternative to DEDB recovery at an IMS Emergency Restart (ERE) failure and assists you in operating and maintaining the data integrity of IMS databases beyond the succeeding IMS Cold Start.

Highlights are:

  • Corrects the online log data sets (OLDS) by invalidating the logging for a transaction that did not reach the sync point and closes the OLDS. It eliminates the need to run the IMS Log Recovery utility.
  • Recovers DEDBs including VSO and shared VSO that were active when IMS failed. It can significantly reduce the time needed to recover DEDBs because it recovers all the required DEDBs at once not by each DEDB area such as the Database Recovery utility. In the data sharing environment it does not interfere with the execution of other IMS subsystems, because it does not require the de-allocation of DEDB areas except when required for keeping the database integrity and the OLDS from them.
  • Generates the JCL of the MSDB Dump Recovery utility to be processed before the IMS Cold Start for the main storage database (MSDB) recovery.
  • Produces the Backout Required PSB list reporting the database names by each application (PSB) that was active when IMS failed for the DL/I database recovery. It helps you to recover DL/I databases using the Batch Backout utility.
  • Updates and maintains the IMS Database Recovery Control (DBRC) RECON data sets when it is required for the data integrity according to the above recovery process. An option to perform recovery without using DBRC can be selected.
  • Provides reports and integrated procedures to assist you in processing required before and after IMS Cold Start.

IMS DEDB Fast Recovery for z/OS, V2.2 shortens the recovery time at an unscheduled IMS Cold Start while maintaining the integrity of the IMS databases.

IMS Image Copy Extensions for z/OS, V2.1 provides a new function called Creation Image Copy that creates new copy data sets from the IMS Image Copy data set.

The Creation Image Copy function creates new copies from:

  • IMS standard image copy data set
  • Image Copy Extensions compressed image copy data set
  • IMS Online Image Copy data set
  • IMS Image Copy 2 data set

It also creates up to seven copies from the original data set at one time.

The Creation Image Copy supports two types of copy methods:

  1. Physical copy creates a new data set with the characteristics of the original image copy data set.
  2. Logical copy creates a new data set by expanding the input as if it were previously compressed and recompressing the data with the same or a different compression algorithm.

    Note: Logical copy does not support Online Image Copy and Image Copy 2 data sets.

The creation Image Copy function supports a dynamic allocation for input and output data sets. More than one output data set can be stored onto one tape volume using STACKING.

Output data sets from the Creation Image Copy data set can be registered with DBRC as Primary and Secondary Image Copy.

Installation is made easier for you, since SMP/E's CALLLIBS support (link-edit automatic library call function) is eliminated.

IBM Database Tools for Performance Management

IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer for z/OS, V1.1 provides more than information on IMS database buffer pool hit ratios and I/O rates. In addition, it helps you determine the impact of buffer pool changes before they are made to take the guesswork out of the process.

The IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer provides modeling facilities to assist with making informed decisions on the addition of buffers to an existing pool, or sizing requirements for a new buffer pool. Specifically, the IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer can analyze IMS database buffer pools (OSAM and VSAM) to provide statistical analysis of the impact of changes affecting buffer pools, including the following:

  • Determining if additional buffers will improve the performance of a given buffer pool
  • Determining if reducing buffers will have an impact on the performance of a given buffer pool, allowing better allocation of real memory resources
  • Modeling buffer pool usage to estimate I/O rates for different numbers of buffers in a each pool
  • Identifying databases which most heavily use each database sub pool
  • Providing I/O rates and buffering requirements for a specific database to facilitate buffer pool changes required for changes to database structure (buffer size, access method, or creation of a separate buffer pool for a given database)
  • Performing "what if" scenario analysis — such as identifying the impact of splitting a specific database into a new buffer pool

IMS Performance Analyzer for z/OS, V3.2 provides the following new functions and enhancements:

  • Improved Monitor reporting:
    • External Subsystem statistics incorporated into Region and Program reports
    • Alternative sequencing of reports by Usage or Delay
    • Enqueue/Dequeue Trace Report enhanced to allow easier identification of conflict candidates
  • Three new Log reports:
    • Transaction Statistics Report includes scheduling information, and detailed DL/I Call and DBCTL resource usage statistics
    • System Checkpoint Report to list your IMS resources and measure System Checkpoint performance
    • Deadlock Report lists and summarizes deadlock events
  • Enhanced Log reporting:
    • New DC Trace Report option to track all log records for selected transactions
    • New Transaction Transit Report option allows transaction transit response time to be summarized by UserID
    • Extract capability extended to include the CPU Usage and DB Update Activity reports
  • ISPF Dialog Interface enhancements:
    • New facility for IMS Subsystem Definitions
    • New Group facility for easier IMS Sysplex definition
    • Report Set JCL Generation is more flexible and easier to use
  • Documentation enhanced to include performance troubleshooting and tuning recommendations

IBM Database Tools for Application Management

DB2 Path Checker for z/OS, V1.2 lets you quickly determine if a bind of a DBRM will result in a changed access path. This is usually done when a new release or version of DB2 is installed, service is applied, or you are migrating a large application from one system to another. You have spent many hours fine-tuning the SQL for performance only to have the optimizer select a path you did not expect. By using DB2 Path Checker, you can see the effects of doing a bind (or having done a bind). DB2 Path Checker does an EXPLAIN into your plan table of the "new" DBRM and gives you a report on those that changed. You can then use any EXPLAIN tool to look at the result and determine whether you need to take action or not.

DB2 Path Checker for z/OS, V1.2 contains all the function formerly found in V1.1 plus the following major enhancements:

  • A new command language now supports all the functions previously provided by the JCL PARM field as well as new (additional) functions. Commands are passed to Path Check via the SYSIN DD statement. All previous parameter functions are still supported, but new function is added with the command language.
  • The SHORT parameter is no longer supported. The decision to provide a one- or two-line report is based on the Explain data being depicted.
  • When comparing two Explains, new matching logic is used. If the query numbers have changed, the Explain entries will be compared based on physical sequence. This is the default and is called MATCHSEQUENCE. The old matching logic may be requested by specifying OPTION MATCHQUERYNO.
  • Fully qualified plan table names and the ability to specify "new" or distinct plan/package names. This makes it a simple matter to compare a test plan or collection to the production version, permitting you to verify access paths in a test environment and then ensure the same access paths are chosen in production. You also can create a new collection with BIND COPY processing and then analyze the new access paths. The new control of the plan names and collection names reduces the need for a second plan table.

IMS Batch Terminal Simulator for z/OS, V3.1 provides a comprehensive means for testing and checking:

  • IMS application program logic
  • IMS application interfaces
  • Teleprocessing activity
  • 3270 format control blocks
  • Database activity

V3.1 provides the following new features and functions:

  • BTS Audit report program provides two functions:
    • Generates the BTSIN control statement with the corresponding MFS associated with the MODNAME from IMS transaction log records ('01'X, '03'X)
    • Prints containing screen images of transactions including data, USER/LTERM identification, time stamp by extracting from BTSOUT
  • Supports the Java™ language application under JBP region

In addition to the new features and functions provided, IMS Batch Terminal Simulator is keeping pace with and supporting the latest technologies.

This new version of Batch Terminal Simulator also provides support for:

  • DB2 call trace
  • WebSphere® MQ call trace
  • LU6.2/APPC
  • AUTOMATIC INIT DBQUERY with conversational mode
  • /EXIT under LE/370
  • TYPE=IFP for INQY call
  • ETO Status code
  • COBTEST under Batch Job
  • Multiversion IMS from a single BTS loadlib

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of their general availability, when used in accordance with IBM's associated 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-based pricing will help to align the prices of these products to the principle of the PSLC pricing curve which provides for a lower price per MSU (millions of service units per hour) for larger capacities.

There is also a price benefit when customers grow their capacity. Additional capacity is based on the number of Value Units (MSUs) the customer has already installed. For example, additional capacity will not be priced starting at the base with a higher price per unit but on the capacity that is already installed.

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

IPLA and Subscription and Support Considerations

International Program License Agreement (IPLA) licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. The customer may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement. It is the customer's responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Ordering Information

The products in this announcement have one charge unit: Value Unit.

Value Unit-based pricing will help to align the prices of these products to the principle of the PSLC pricing curve which provides for a lower price per MSU (millions of service units per hour) for larger capacities.

There is also a price benefit when customers grow their capacity. Additional capacity will be based on the number of Value Units (MSUs) the customer has already installed, for example, additional capacity will not be priced starting at the base with a higher price per unit but on the capacity that is already installed.

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

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
           MSUs       Value Units/MSU
 
Base        1-3            1.00
Tier A      4-45            .45
Tier B     46-175           .36
Tier C    176-315           .27
Tier D    316+              .20

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

If the customer has installed 1,000 MSUs, the applicable Value Units would be:

3 x 1.00 + 42 x 0.45 + 130 x 0.36 + 140 x 0.27 + 685 x 0.20 = 244 Value Units

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

Value Units for IBM 9672 Processors will be based upon the full capacity of these systems. This is applicable to all S/390®-based systems that are measured on MSU capacity. Information on MSU capacities can be found in the System/370™, System/390®, and IBM eServer zSeries™ Machine Exhibit Z125-3901.

Value Units for zSeries will be based upon full MSU capacity as defined in the Machine Exhibits, unless a customer qualifies for sub-capacity pricing on the z/900 server.

Value Units for non-MSU-based S/390 Processors:

MP3000 Models
              H30       =   6.00 Value Units
              H50       =   8.00 Value Units
              H70       =  12.00 Value Units
 
P/390, R/390, IBM 3006  =   2.00 Value Units

A tool is available that supports transforming the MSU-based capacities of S/390 Systems to new Value Units by calculating the applicable number of Value Units for a given number of MSUs. The person preparing an order is required to use this tool to calculate the number of Value Units, based upon the number of MSUs (processor capacity). CFSW expects Value Units as configuration input.

The products in this announcement have one charge unit — Value Units.

Value Units for IBM 9672 Processors will be based upon the full capacity of these systems. This is applicable to all S/390-based systems that are measured on MSU capacity. Information on MSU capacities can be found in the IBM System/370, System/390 and zSeries Machine Exhibit, Z125-3901.

Value Units for zSeries will be based upon full MSU capacity as defined in the Machine Exhibits.

There will be a tool available that provides support for transforming the MSU-based capacities of S/390 systems to new Value Units by calculating the applicable number of Value Units for a given number of MSUs.

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

Single Version Charging: To elect single version charging, the customer must notify and identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program and the machine the programs are operating on.

Customized Offerings

Product media is shipped only via Customized Offerings (for example, CBPDO, ServerPac, Systempac®). Non-customized items (CDs, diskettes, source media, media kits) will continue to be shipped via the stand-alone product.

Note that there is no maintenance support via the Customized Offerings for code that is shipped on CD-ROM.

Terms and Conditions

Sub-Capacity Charges Terms and Conditions

zSeries software charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible Data Management (DM) and Application Development (AD) Tools apply when z/OS is running in z/Architecture™ (64-bit) mode on a 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 an eligible AD or DM Tool is based on the z/OS product-defined capacity. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible AD and DM tools, the customer is required to:

  • Determine the MSUs needed for each machine on which the tools will run. Only machines on which the customer has implemented sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) according to the above terms and conditions, are eligible for charges at less than full machine capacity for the tools.
  • Use the product defined capacity for z/OS (as specified on the Sub-Capacity Reports submitted to IBM for sub-capacity WLC) as the sub-capacity (MSUs) for each tool.
  • Submit any additional MSUs and/or Value Units required for each product along with the current entitlement in Value Units for each product.

Sub-Capacity Charges for AD and DM Tools

To be eligible for sub-capacity charges for AD and DM Tools, the machine on which the AD and DM Tools are running must be eligible for WLC sub-capacity charges terms and conditions. The customer must have signed the Attachment for zSeries Workload License Charges-Pre-ILM, Z125-6516, and submitted at least one Sub-Capacity Report to IBM as defined in the attachment.

With sub-capacity charges, the charge for an eligible AD or DM Tool is based on the z/OS product-defined capacity. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for each eligible AD and DM Tool for each machine, the customer should:

  • Determine the MSUs needed for the machine on which the tools will run. In a data sharing environment, determine the aggregate MSUs needed on the machine where the tools run. Use the product-defined capacity (MSUs) for z/OS (as specified on the Sub-Capacity Reports submitted to IBM for sub-capacity WLC) as the sub-capacity (MSUs) for each Tool.
  • Submit any additional MSUs and/or Value Units required for each product along with the current entitlement in Value Units for each product.
  • If the use of sub-capacity pricing terms for AD and DM Tools results in a reduced requirement for Value Units, thus freeing up entitlements, customers can reallocate the entitlement difference by distributing the Value Units across a larger or different set of systems, or reserve them for future growth. There will be no refunds for these freed up Value Units. Subscription and Support volumes and entitlements for existing contracts will continue to be at the same levels as the acquired licenses.

Management of the Value Unit entitlements continues to be a customer responsibility. If one of the following occur on a machine to which AD or DM Tools are licensed, the customer must determine if additional Value Units and Subscription and Support need to be ordered for those tools to cover the increase:

  • The z/OS defined capacity is increased.
  • The requirements for WLC sub-capacity charges are no longer met.

Licensing: IPLA. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

The following agreements apply for maintenance and do not require customer signatures:
