Overview

WebSphere® Studio Application Monitor for z/OS®, V2.1 enables application developers, application analysts, and Quality Assurance personnel to analyze the behavior of applications and quickly take corrective actions to resolve problems. It provides troubleshooting, performance monitoring, and performance analysis functions to large-scale e-business applications running on the WebSphere Application Server platform.

Without requiring any changes to the applications, WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS finds the root causes of performance bottlenecks for rapid problem resolution. A real-time, Web-based visual interface dynamically reflects activity. Monitored information is collected as a complete history of all performance and availability metrics. Application analysts would make use of such information to plan capacity for future growth.

WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS consists of two components:

  1. A central managing server that:
    • Monitors individual or groups of applications
    • Generates operational performance alerts
    • Stores all performance and availability metrics in a database
    • Manages software levels
  2. A Data Collector that runs in the WebSphere Application Servers for z/OS being monitored.

WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS, V2.1 is integrated with WebSphere Studio Workload Simulator for z/OS, V1.1.1. The two products exchange information during a load-test and the results are plotted for analysis at test completion.

Data Collectors for distributed WebSphere Application Servers are made available in conjunction with the release of WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS, V2.1. These "Data Collectors for Multiplatforms" extend the capabilities of WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS to distributed platforms. Customers who already have WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS V2.1 will also be able to monitor their WebSphere applications on AIX®, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, and Windows™ 2000.

A data collector for CICS® is also made available in conjunction with the release of WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS, V2.1. The "CICS Data Collector" extends WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS V2.1 to manage composite transactions that span WebSphere and CICS. Details of such composite transactions can be displayed seamlessly. This allows application developers and application analysts to more easily perform problem determination and performance management in an effective manner across both WebSphere and CICS.

WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS, V2.1, along with the Data Collectors for Multiplatforms and the CICS Data Collector, reduce the risks associated with deploying applications into a production environment. They allow application developers and testers to view and correlate entire transaction flows between Java™ 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) application servers and CICS.

Description

The J2EE platform is increasingly adopted by organizations to support large server applications. While J2EE provides a rich environment for defining business logic, and delivers a wide array of highly available and scalable technologies for connecting back-end systems to middle-tier business logic, complex interactions between distributed, multi-tiered, object-oriented applications can pose a difficult problem to even the most sophisticated IT shops. As applications evolve from design and test to staging and production phases, they migrate through a life cycle that normally includes numerous checks on functionality and performance.

WebSphere Studio Application Monitor, along with the CICS Data Collector and the Data Collectors for Multiplatforms, are life cycle tools that help application developers and application analysts better construct, test, and manage e-business applications spanning the WebSphere Application Server and CICS platforms.

Without requiring any changes to the applications, these tools can uncover the root causes of performance bottlenecks for rapid problem resolution. They offer performance analysis and reporting functions to allow the assessment of resource consumption. They also provide a real-time Web-based visual interface through which applications can be dynamically monitored to varying levels of details. This monitoring information is collected in a complete history of all performance and availability metrics.

WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS, V2.1 is integrated with WebSphere Studio Workload Simulator for z/OS, V1.1.1. The two products exchange information during a load-test and the results are plotted for analysis at test completion.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

WebSphere Studio Application Monitor for z/OS, V2.1, CICS Data Collector for z/OS, V2.1, and Data Collectors for Multiplatforms V2.1 are all capable as of October 31, 2003, 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 that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged/interchanged/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 IBM System/370™, System/390® and zSeries® Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901).

Value Units for IBM eServer 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.

Translation from MSUs to Value Units example

             MSUs      Value Units/MSU

Tier A       4-45            .83
Tier B      46-175           .35
Tier C     176-315           .26
Tier D     316+              .20

Note: For the actual translation from MSUs to Value Units for this product, refer below.

Ordering example: 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:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units

            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                              270

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

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 Workstation 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.

Applicability of sub-capacity charges: The Data Collector for Multiplatforms product is charged for on a per processor basis, not a Value Unit basis. Therefore, it is not eligible for Sub-Capacity Charges.
