IMS High Availability Large Database (HALDB) Conversion and Maintenance Aid for z/OS, V2 (5655-K47) contains all the features and functions of IMS HALDB Conversion Aid for z/OS, which provides the utilities and aids you need to analyze, model, and convert existing IMS V7 and V8 full-function database structures to a HALDB format. The tool also supports the migration of IMS V7 and V8 databases that have been partitioned by the IBM IMS Partition DB product (5697-D85) or the OEM Partitioning product. In addition, the following new features and functions are provided:

  • New conversion functions:
    • DEDB (without SDEP) to PHDAM
    • User partitioning
      • Multiple DBDs of identical structure are converted to one HALDB
    • Conversion JCL can be in one multi-step JOB
    • Data collection and partitioning done during conversion unload
  • A new utility is provided called Initial Load Assist. This utility assists applications that do PROCOPT=L for HALDB databases by providing functions to:
    • Delay writing secondary indexes to the end of the load process, sort the indexes, and load them sequentially. No JCL change is required.
    • Intercept logical children segments during the load process, write them to a temporary file, and process them at the end of the load process. A JCL change is required for external logical relations, since all related databases need to be loaded first.
  • The Status Code "BA" Aid function provides assistance to application programs, which want to allow "partition not available." The application does not need to be changed. The assumption is that the "not available" status is for a short time only.
  • The Partition Maintenance Aid function contains support for:
    • Split partitions
      • Create the necessary DBRC commands
      • Allocate the files
      • Create the utilities
      • Locate the new high key
    • Support DBRC functions for HALDB
      • Resolve authorization exceptions
      • Create backout JCL
    • Support backup and recovery
      • Create backup JCL
      • Create recovery JCL
    • Generate Reorganization Utilities

IMS High Performance (HP) Pointer Checker for z/OS, V2 (5655-K53) is a key tool that lets you manage many database reorganization activities efficiently. Used on a regular basis, IMS HP Pointer Checker can help ensure that your database pointers are error free. It also alerts you to the need to perform a database reorganization.

This version delivers the following enhancements:

  • Full checking performance is improved by:
    • Introducing smaller sort records
    • Eliminating the merge step
    • Optimizing work buffers
    • Providing VSCR relief
    • Introducing parallel scan capabilities
    • Reducing job steps
  • Usability is improved with simplified setup and operation.
  • Databases are processed in parallel.
  • Reporting is improved.

IMS Library Integrity Utilities for z/OS (5655-I42) includes all of the features and functions of the:

  • IMS Library Management Utilities for OS/390, which help you manage IMS Access Control Block (ACB), PSB, and DBD libraries.
  • IMS Advanced ACB Generator for OS/390, which combines a number of features and functions to further help you manage your IMS ACB libraries more effectively. It also provides a high-speed generation process, which is important when processing large volumes of IMS ACBs.
In addition, IMS Library Integrity Utilities includes Integrity Checker and Consistency Checker features.

Integrity Checker helps protect your databases from corruption caused by using the wrong IMS control blocks for access. If the IMS control blocks used to access the database are not the same as the ones that were used to load the database, then a data integrity exposure can occur. This type of data integrity exposure is one of the most common causes for IMS database corruption. Representative examples of using the wrong IMS control blocks are:

  • A batch program that uses a test DBD library to update a production database
  • A batch program that uses a new DBD before the associated database is reorganized using the new DBD
  • An online IMS system that uses an old ACB to update a database whose associated DBD was changed
Integrity Checker addresses these situations by verifying at each database authorization that the control blocks used to access the database are the same as the ones that IMS used to load the database.

Consistency Checker helps you ensure that the necessary definitions in your IMS subsystem have been created. For a DBD in the DBD library, Consistency Checker verifies that the:

  • Associated ACB was generated in the ACB library.
  • Online database definition was created in the MODBLKS.
  • Dynamic allocation member was created in the MDA library.
  • Database was registered in the DBRC RECON data set.

The following functional enhancements are also provided for existing utilities:

  • DBD/PSB/ACB Mapper: ACB map for DBD-type ACB members
  • DBD/PSB/ACB Reversal: ACB Reversal for DBD-type ACB members
  • Advanced ACB Generator: Suppression of PSB rebuild when DBDs are replaced that do not affect PSBs

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 be a price benefit when customers grow their capacity. Additional capacity will 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: Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

IPLA and Subscription and Support Considerations

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.

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 System/370™, System/390®, and zSeries™ Machine Exhibit, Z125-3901.

Value Units for zSeries will be based on 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.

Translation from MSUs to Value Units Example
 
                 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

For an example of translation from MSUs to Value Units, refer to the table below.

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

If the customer has installed 1,200 MSUs, the applicable Value Units would be:

          Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
              MSUs    x  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
 
  Base          3     x      1.00         =      3.00
  Tier A       42     x       .45         =     18.90
  Tier B      130     x       .36         =     46.80
  Tier C      140     x       .27         =     37.80
  Tier D      885     x       .20         =    177.00
 
  Total     1,200                              284

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

                                         Feature
                                         Number
 
  1   Value Unit                         0001
  250 Value Units                        0002

Example: For a product running on machines with 1,200 MSUs requiring 284 Value Units, order feature number 0001, quantity 34 and feature number 0002, quantity 1.

Note: For actual feature numbers, refer to the table below.

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

Basic License: To order, specify the program number, feature number 9001 for asset registration, and the one-time charge (OTC) feature number. Also specify the feature number of the desired distribution medium. To suppress shipment of media, select the license-only option in CFSW.

When ordering DB2 or IMS data management tools for use in a Parallel Sysplex® environment, specify the number of Value Units to cover the MSU capacity of the machines in the Parallel Sysplex to which DB2 and/or IMS is licensed. The following examples illustrate how this rule applies to different situations.

  • DB2 and/or IMS licensed on a single server

    In a single zSeries server with a capacity of 140 MSUs with DB2 or IMS licensed to it, data management tool licenses are based on the 140 MSU capacity of the machine.

  • DB2 or IMS licensed under PSLC in a sysplex

    In a four-way sysplex with DB2 or IMS on all four machines in the sysplex, data management tool licenses are based on the total capacity in MSUs of all four machines or the total number of MSUs in the sysplex.

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 support program number and feature number 9001 for asset registration. 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 base support to include technical support via telephone during normal business hours
  • Entitles customers to future releases and versions at no additional charge

    Note: The customer is not entitled to new products.

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

Annual Support Charge

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.

Terms and Conditions

Sub-Capacity Charges Terms and Conditions

zSeries software charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible Data Management (DM) 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 DM Tool are based on the z/OS product-defined capacity. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible 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 DM Tools

To be eligible for sub-capacity charges for DM Tools, the machine on which the 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 DM Tool is based on the z/OS product-defined capacity. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for each eligible 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 DB2 and/or IMS are installed. 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 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 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: IBM International Program License Agreement. Proofs of Entitlement are required for all authorized use.
