Product positioning

IMS, the recognized database manager and transaction server in the industry, is critical to your business. Exclusive to the z/OS platform, IMS V9 complements DB2® and WebSphere® servers for database and transaction management. All of these are strategic IBM products and continue to be enhanced.

IMS Database Manager utilizes hierarchical organization technology, whereas DB2, Oracle, and desktop systems utilize relational database technology. Hierarchical and relational databases have each continued to grow with their specific characteristics and different roles to play. Hierarchical is best used for mission-critical work and for work that requires the utmost in performance. Relational is best used for decision support.

Hierarchical databases can offer a significant performance edge over relational databases when queries are known before hand. Query optimization for relational databases ensures good performance where the query is not known in advance. Each type is best at what it does. The products supporting these technologies are enhanced to address the different application requirements and are continuing to more and more overlap in their capabilities. However, the product originally designed for that capability will inherently be the best.

Relational and hierarchical technology can work together for optimum solutions. Users can efficiently store operational data in hierarchical form, which can be accessed easily by their favorite relational decision support tools, with minimal impact on the production hierarchical data. IMS data can be accessed directly or propagated and replicated with relational data for summarizing, enhancing, and mining. IBM provides standard application interfaces for accessing IMS as well as other data. Both relational and hierarchical IMS data can be most efficiently accessed, together or independently, using the IMS Transaction Manager and WebSphere servers.

IBM continues to invest in providing these complementary solutions. Note that most IMS customers also have DB2.

IMS Transaction Manager and WebSphere servers are both strategic application managers and are enhanced to take advantage of each other. They each have inherently different characteristics. IMS is more efficient in application management, data storage, and data access but applies strict rules for this access. WebSphere make it easier to serve the Web and integrate data that may have been less defined in advance. Thus, they play different roles in the enterprise. Customers are using both application managers — WebSphere for newer Web-based applications, and IMS for more mission-critical high performance/availability and low-cost/transaction applications and data.

IMS and WebSphere products together have been providing tools to make this combination an optimum environment. Using IMS Connect/Connector for Java, WebSphere development tooling can develop Web applications that can serve the Web and easily access existing/new mission-critical IMS applications. Using JDBC and IMS Open Database Access, WebSphere applications can also access IMS DB data directly.

IBM demonstrates its commitments to you by continuing to enhance IMS. Current investments have:

  • Substantially improved database availability
  • Established open access to IMS transactions
  • Extended Parallel Sysplex® systems support

Technical description

Integrated/Open access for application development and connectivity

Integrated IMS™ Connect function

  • Integrated IMS Connect function provides advanced security and transactional integrity in TCP/IP and local/390 access to IMS and the Internet. It supports high-performance communications between one or more TCP/IP or local/390 clients, and one or more IMS systems. It provides commands to manage that environment and assist with workload balancing resulting in better resource utilization. It reduces design and coding effort for client applications, and provides easier access to IMS applications and operations, thereby improving programmer productivity.
  • Integrated IMS Connect function, used with IBM DB2® Universal Database and the IMS Control Center, allows a single, graphical user interface to control both IMS and DB2. This would ease IMS operations.
  • Integrated IMS Connect function, used with the WebSphere® Development Tooling and the IMS Connector for Java™, can significantly ease the development of on demand business solutions that access IMS transactions. These solutions can be deployed in WebSphere Application Servers, allowing you to use Web applications, the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications, or Web services to quickly transform static Web sites into sources of dynamic Web content, improving marketing effectiveness and customer service. They can also be used to transform C, COBOL, and MFS IMS transactions into Web services for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), enabling quick response to new customer requirements, business operations, and competitive threads.
  • IMS SOAP Gateway support is an XML-based solution that enables existing or new IMS applications to communicate outside of the IMS environment using SOAP to provide and request services independently of platform, environment, application language, or programming model. Initially, a Technology Preview demonstration of this is available on the IMS Web site at
  • IMS Connector for Java is being enhanced to support using RACF® key rings as SSL keystores. This support works in conjunction with the digital certificate support in RACF, allowing IMS Connector for Java to retrieve public and private keys from a RACF key ring, thus easing security management for this environment. This support is being provided through the IMS V9 service process.

Java and XML enhancements

  • XML Data Storage and Retrieval Enablement provides support for storage and retrieval of XML documents into and from IMS databases. The XML enablement extends the IMS Java JDBC interface to allow the composition of XML documents from pre-existing non-XML IMS data. In addition, IMS can store XML documents in IMS databases, either wholly intact or by decomposing them into standard IMS segments and fields, that can be used by existing or new non-XML enabled applications, thereby preserving and extending past investment and enhancing programmer productivity.
  • DLIModel utility enhancements generate XML Schemas from IMS Database Definitions (DBDs) and Program Specification Blocks (PSBs). This utility supports XML storage and retrieval at runtime. This enhancement automates schema generation to accelerate IMS application development.
  • DLIModel utility GUI provides a graphical version of the DLIModel Utility built as an Eclipse plug-in. The DLIModel GUI simplifies IMS metadata generation, eases IMS Java and XML database application development, and offers a visual representation of IMS databases. Initial support is provided as a Technology Preview from the IMS Web site at
  • IMS Java Remote Database Services enables distributed database access to IMS DB data from an EJB running on a distributed J2EE application server without requiring additional z/OS® application programming. This reduces application development lead times and improves programmer productivity. It is an extension of the IMS JDBC support and provides a new IMS distributed JDBC resource adapter. This feature also provides full XML DB support.
  • IMS-DB2 interoperability from within a Java Dependent Region. This item is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • IMS JDBC provides Structured Query Language (SQL) enhancements for new SQL keywords and aggregate functions (SUM, AVG, MIN, MAX, COUNT, ORDER BY, GROUP BY, AS) making application development easier and facilitating data accessibility. This item is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • Java-COBOL interoperability from within a Java dependent region improves programmer productivity and simplifies operations. This item is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • IMS JDBC provides GSAM database support in JDB regions. This item will be delivered through the IMS V9 service process.
  • IMS JDBC provides support for JDK 1.4.
  • The IMS JDBC driver provides the ability to use non-searchable fields (fields that are not defined in a DBD) in an SQL WHERE clause, provided those fields are a subset of a searchable field. This item will be delivered through the IMS V9 service process.
  • IMS JDBC provides added functionality to select all fields from multiple segments in an SQL SELECT clause. The asterisk (*) operator can now be used in conjunction with a segment name. For example: SELECT A.*, B.* FROM B.
  • IMS JAVA support for the new IBM zSeries® Application Assist Processor (zAAP) for the IBM zSeries 990 (z990) and IBM zSeries 890 (z890) servers allows Java workloads to transparently execute on the zAAP processors without requiring application change.

    This allows you to integrate and run Java workloads on the same server as your database at a significantly lower total cost of ownership than previously possible. This helps reduce the overall cost of computing for Java applications, increase system productivity by reducing the demands on general purpose processors, and make capacity available for other workloads.

  • Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) support, including the ability to obtain scroll insensitive result sets, aids programmer productivity and application portability. This item is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • Symbolic Checkpoint/Restart support is provided for the Java Batch Region, improving programmer productivity and reducing operational complexity.
  • COBOL XML support through WebSphere Studio Enterprise Edition (WSED)-generated XML converters to allow IMS COBOL applications to parse and transform XML documents. You can now send and receive XML documents directly to and from IMS COBOL applications running inside IMS regions, thereby improving programmer productivity and preserving prior investment.

Open Transaction Manager Access (OTMA) and Application Program-to-Program Communications (APPC) Security, Serviceability, Availability, and Performance Enhancements

  • OTMA Clients can set the ACEE Aging Value for userid in the OTMA message prefix without requiring the client to reconnect to OTMA, improving availability and security.
  • OTMT Table Trace entries for OTMA User exits (DFSYPRX0, DFSYIOE0, and DFSYDRU0) are standardized so you can view the return code set by the exit routines, improving programmer productivity. The OTMA User Exit routine (DFSYPRX0) can set the OTMA destination TPIPE name, thus easing serviceability.
  • OTMA Translation Input and Output Set/Change can be done with the z2 field of the IMS application data, enhancing usability.
  • Ability for IMS Connect/IMS Connector for Java application to inform OTMA to purge Commit Mode 0 (CM0) Input Output Program Control Block (IOPCB) output when IMS Connect is disconnected from the MVS™ Cross-Coupling Facility (XCF) group, easing recovery. This is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • /DISPLAY TMEMBER Transaction (TPIPE) command enhancement to show the wait status for an expected Acknowledgement (ACK) or Negative ACK (NACK) for commit-then-send messages, easing usability. This is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • Ability to accept new Resume TPIPE option "AUTO-ONE" or "SINGLE-AUTO." After receiving the Resume TPIPE command from IMS Connect, if there are messages on the asynchronous hold queue, OTMA sends one message. If there are currently no messages, OTMA will send one message when it arrives. This eases performance. This is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • IMS response time reduction for MQSeries® CM0 non-persistent output messages, thus easing performance. This is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • /EXIT enhancement to allow for termination of APPC/OTMA IMS Conversational transactions, thus easing availability.
  • Extend command support to allow /EXIT to be entered from an APPC/OTMA device/subsystem to end an IMS conversation, thus easing availability.
  • Extend the synchronous APPC/OTMA Shared Queues enablement function to support a new "FORCE" option for the AOS parameter in the DFSDCxxx PROCLIB member so that the APPC/OTMA transactions can be run at the back-end IMS even when the RRS at the back-end is down, thus enhancing availability. This is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.
  • Ability to allow a second timeout for APPC, thus easing availability. APPC has an additional timeout parameter that specifies the number of minutes the APPC conversation is allowed to be inactive since the last APPC call. This helps the customer to monitor the conversations.
  • Ability to allow DFSLUEE0 for APPC to change the synch level of outbound conversation and to allow DFSCMU0 exit to reroute DFS™ messages for APPC/OTMA when send fails, thus easing usability. This is also provided through the IMS V8 service process.

Security enhancements for RACF (or equivalent products) enable migration from Security Maintenance Utility (SMU) security and consolidating implementation of all security under RACF.

Greater than 255 Transaction classes increases the number of named scheduling classes of transactions from 255 to 999 to enhance tailoring of system scheduling, thereby enhancing usability.

VTAM® Multi-node Persistent Sessions (MNPS) enhancement provides a replacement for USERVAR for IMS Extended Recovery Facility (XRF). IMS XRF provides hot standby capability for IMS but is no longer dependent on the 3745 hardware controllers.

Option added to allow Logical Unit (LU) Type 3 device to log on as an Extended Terminal Option (ETO) SLU1 or 3270P device to make IMS available for those devices.

Manageability ease toward autonomic computing

Operations enhancements

  • Enhanced Command environment simplifies the Common Service Layer allowing the use of IMS enhanced format (type-2) commands and the IMS Single Point of Control without requiring the IMS Resource Manager.
  • Sysplex Wide Database Commands expand operations management Single Point of Control to include the handling of Database Commands.

    The Operations Manager (OM) was delivered in IMS V8 and provided an OM Application Programming Interface (API) to allow IMS commands to be issued from OM. In IMS V9, commands for database and area resources provide the user the ability to better manage the IMS Sysplex and provide a single system image. These commands provide the same functionality as their similar classic (type-1) commands.

  • /DIAGNOSE Command eases IMS serviceability.
  • Knowledge Based Log Analysis (KBLA) eases IMS serviceability by providing:
    • A set of programs that extract and analyze information from IMS log and trace records, which are then presented in an easy-to-read format
    • An interface to the selection and management of IMS log datasets for analysis
    • A set of panels that provide a simple-to-use interface to the KBLA programs and to other pre-existing IMS log analysis utilities
  • By consolidating several TSO and ISPF applications to facilitate their use, the IMS Application Menu allows users to select any of the applications from a menu.
  • Command Recognition Character Registration is provided to uniquely register the subsystem so an operator can enter a command from any system in a Sysplex and have it routed to the right subsystem. With this registration, the operating system can detect collisions between subsystems as well as be able to inform operators and systems programmers which prefixes are currently in use, thus easing operations management.
  • New DFS4172I Write-To-Operator (WTO) Message replaces the WTO-Reply (WTOR) message for Fast Database Recovery (FDBR). The WTO message notifies operations when the FDBR tracker is started before the active IMS without having to wait for a reply. The tracker then waits for the active IMS to startup. This eases operations usability in this environment.
  • Enhanced IEBCOPY parameter support for WORK=, SIZE=, and LIST= on the Online Change Copy Utility. This reduces outage by allowing for overriding of default values.
  • The autonomic adjustment of the global database directory table results in more effective management of the table, thus improving performance during IMS data sharing processing. This enhancement is being provided through the IMS V7, IMS V8, and IMS V9 service processes.

System Generation (Sysgen) time and effort enhancements

  • System generation enhancements stage the removal of conditional link edits currently done by Sysgen. This removes the restriction of requiring separate execution libraries for IMS environments. These enhancements eliminate the conditional link of composite modules, thus eliminating a step and thereby reducing the impact of the system generation process.
  • Online Change (OLC) Module enhancements remove OLC modules from the Nucleus Linkedit step and place them in their own load modules. The value is in saving some below-the-line private storage. This is another step towards limiting the impact of IMS Sysgen, easing the process for defining IMS resources. IMS's long range goal is to eliminate the current batch process of resource definition and to dynamically define IMS resources.
  • Remove Extended Terminal Option (ETO) feature install checking during the Sysgen process which eliminates the need for an IMS Sysgen to add this feature. This ETO feature installation is now verified during the IMS TM initialization process instead.
  • Dynamic Change of Type 4 SVC reduces the need to coordinate the IMS install with a z/OS IPL, improving system availability.
  • Dynamic Add of Resource Cleanup module enhances availability and serviceability.
  • Syntax Checker enhancements continue Syntax Checker's role of providing detailed assistance with the tailoring of IMS by providing support for the definition and maintenance of additional IMS Proclib members and the addition of usability features, thereby aiding programmer productivity and reducing operator error.
  • Installation Verification Program (IVP) enhancements provide new sample applications supporting the Common Queue Server (CQS) and the new enhanced command environment. In addition, numerous usability improvements are provided, including the ability to import IVP variables from previous releases.

Scalability in performance/capacity/availability/recovery

Integrated Online Reorganization (OLR) of high availability large databases (HALDB)

IMS V9 OLR provides a fully integrated online reorganization by partition of HALDBs with concurrent online update and availability. This is totally non-disruptive. There is no outage, and minimal additional DASD is required during reorganization. Users can adjust the pace of OLR to further minimize their online impact. Multiple partitions can be reorganized in parallel. This online reorganization function provides for enhanced database availability. Coordination is provided through the IMS DBRC facility.

Additional HALDB enhancements

  • HALDB usability eases partition initialization without requiring DBRC commands, aiding usability.
  • DBRC Option enhancement for HALDB allows a batch program that references a HALDB to run without DBRC so long as no database calls refer to the HALDB during execution. This provides more flexibility in running a single program in different environments, thus reducing application developer and operations efforts that might be needed to convert programs and ensure their running only in specific environments. This enhancement is also being provided through the IMS V7 and IMS V8 service process.
  • HALDB Processing Control Statement enhancement increases the number of HALDB single partition processing control statements from 10 to 20 for usability. This allows a customer's application to specify up to 20 DB PCBs that are allowed to perform single partition processing in a HALDB. This enhancement is also being provided through the IMS V7 and IMS V8 service process.
  • HALDB Partition Selection Exit DSECT enhancement allows customers to use the DFSPSEIB macro to get the partition selection exit DSECTs. This makes HALDB with a user-written partition selection exit easier to use. Customers no longer have to create their own DSECTs for the partition selection exit parameters. This enhancement is also being provided through the IMS V7 and IMS V8 service process.
  • HALDB Partition Selection Exit Customization enhancement makes HALDB with a user-written partition selection exit more customizable and easier to use. This allows a partition selection exit to run differently, depending on IMS and the application running. This enhancement is being provided through the IMS V9 service process.

IMS Dynamic Allocation Virtual Storage Constraint Relief (VSCR) enhancement

This enhancement ensures that the Data Set Association Blocks (DSABs) generated are allocated above the line if running with z/OS 1.5, thereby providing enhanced Virtual Storage Constraint Relief. For example, if you have 20,000 Full Function and/or Fast Path data sets dynamically allocated, you could have over two megabytes of storage allocated above the line.

Database Recovery Control (DBRC) enhancements

  • DBRC Application Program Interface enables vendor tools and customer-written application programs to obtain services from DBRC for usability and help reduce migration impact in using these tools.
  • Command Authorization support, initially provided in IMS V8 for DBRC batch commands, is now also provided for the online DBRC /RM command, improving operator productivity.
  • Selected DBRC modules moved above the 16 MB line for enhanced capacity.
  • Reuse of Database Management Block (DMB) slots to register databases to DBRC when the last DMB number is reached, thus reducing potential outages and improving availability.

Database utilities and log enhancements

  • Logger enhancements to improve availability and recovery of Online Data Sets (OLDS) and Write-Ahead Data Sets (WADS). Where WADS are used, restart can now read both primary and secondary WADS for additional data whenever possible. In addition, the OLDS data can be used as input for restart when the OLDS is flagged Error = Close.
  • Greater than 32K Tape block size support is included in the image copy and recovery utilities, providing a performance advantage.
  • The Hierarchical Direct (HD) Unload and Reload utilities enhancement generates statistics for each HALDB partition. This is in addition to the summary statistics report of the entire HALDB database previously being generated. This provides valuable information for each HALDB partition unloaded and reloaded.

    Users can therefore supply two or more unload files to be reloaded into a database. These capabilities ease database administration. This support is also being provided through the IMS V8 service process.

Fast Path enhancements

  • FP Data Entry Database (DEDB) Area Open/Close enhancements provide improved performance of DEDB area open/close processing. Increased parallelism is obtained by exploiting multiple Task Control Blocks (TCBs) to process multiple area open requests simultaneously. This provides a performance advantage when there are many areas to open. Additional usability enhancements improve the handling of DEDB area open processing during IMS emergency restart processing and other system error recovery scenarios.
  • FP Shared Virtual Storage Option (SVSO) Multi-area Structure Support provides for housing multiple DEDB areas in a single Coupling Facility (CF) structure. Instead of having one CF structure per area, multiple areas can reside in a single CF structure. This reduces the total number of CF structures that need to be defined in a system.
  • FP Optional Expedited Message Handler Queue (EMHQ) Structure allows users to bypass allocating an EMHQ structure and its associated data sets when shared EMH is not being used, thus easing manageability.

    Fast Database Recovery (FDBR) Extended Common Storage Area (ECSA) Relief for Data Entry Databases (DEDBs) allows storage for DEDB buffer pools to be obtained from the IMS private region rather than from ECSA.

  • FP Serviceability/Usability provides a number of additional enhancements for serviceability/usability of Fast Path. This includes, among other things, additional log record information for sequential dependent segments (SDEPs) so they may be used by the IMS Performance Analyzer.

External subsystem support

  • Enhanced Recoverability with DB2 or other subsystems through a user exit to enable these subsystems to resolve their indoubts without waiting for IMS restart to complete.
  • IRLM Reconnect option gives users the option to cause IMS — during IRLM reconnect processing — to automatically restart DEDB areas closed as a result of an IRLM failure.

  • WebSphere Application Server V5.0, or later, and WebSphere Application Server V5.1, or later, for deployment of non-MFS Java applications.
  • WebSphere Application Server V5.1, or later, for deployment of MFS Java applications.

IMS Dynamic Allocation VSCR Enhancement requires z/OS 1.5.

IMS VTAM MNPS enhancement takes advantage of z/OS 1.6 Communications Server Persistent Sessions Forced Takeover.

Security enhancements for RACF take advantage of z/OS 1.6 Security Server Defined Resource Classes.

IMS/DB2 Coordinated Disaster Recovery Support requires the IMS V9 Remote Site Recovery (RSR) Recovery Level Tracking (RLT) feature.

IMS V9 TM can be connected via subsystem routing communications to DB2 V6.1 (5645-DB2), DB2 V7.1 (5675-DB2), or DB2 V8 (5625-DB2).

IMS V9 DB can be connected via the DBCTL interface to CICS Transaction Server for OS/390® V1.3 (5655-147), CICS Transaction Server for z/OS V2.2 (5697-E93), or user-written software.

IMS V9 TM can be connected via InterSystem Communications (ISC) to the following:

  • IMS V9 (5655-J38)
  • IMS V8 (5655-C56)
  • IMS V7 (5655-B01)
  • CICS Transaction Server for z/OS V2.2 (5697-E93)
  • CICS Transaction Server for OS/390 V1.3 (5655-147) or
  • User-written software

The IMS ETO feature requires the IMS TM feature.

The IMS RSR RLT feature requires either the IMS TM or the IMS DB feature.

The IMS RSR DLT feature requires the IMS RSR RLT and IMS DB features.

IMS V9 is written in High Level Assembler, PL/X, and C.

Compatibility: IMS V9 is upwardly compatible from previous versions, allowing existing applications and data to be used without change. Migration and coexistence support is provided for IMS V7 and V8 with V9. Review the Preventative Service Planning (PSP) information for further details.

An Integrated Online Reorganization (OLR)-capable High Availability Large Database (HALDB) can be processed by an application running under IMS V8 (with the OLR Coexistence SPE) as well as under IMS V9. That database can be shared by IMS V8 and IMS V9 systems.

Much of the base function of the Integrated IMS V9 Connect function can be used with terminals, applications, and data running under IMS V7, IMS V8, and IMS V9. Distributed Operations support, as well as the separately-orderable IMS Connect V2 Tool function, is supported only for use with IMS V8 and IMS V9. In addition, IBM continues to support the separately-orderable IMS Connect Tool for IMS V7, IMS V8, and IMS V9 usage, easing IMS Connect Tool migration to the new integrated IMS V9 Connect function.

IMS V7 introduced a new combined MSC exit (DFSMSCE0) and was the last release to support the following old MSC exits: Terminal Routing (DFSCMTR0), Input Message Routing (DFSNPRT0), Link Receive Routing (DFSCMLR0/DFSCMLR1), or Program Routing (DFSCMPR0). Customers using these exits need to migrate to the new exit.

IMS V7 was the last release to support the High Performance Java (HPJ) Compiler. Customers using HPJ-compiled applications should migrate to the new Persistent Reusable JVM support.

IMS V8 was the last release to support the IMS V5 SDEP CI format.

IMS V9 is a transition release for security and with the Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) enhancements customers should migrate off the Security Maintenance Utility (SMU) to RACF. IMS V9 is the last release to support the SMU. Customers using SMU should migrate to RACF or an equivalent product.

IMS V9 is the last release to support the Basic Telecommunications Access Method (BTAM). Customers using BTAM should migrate to Virtual Telecommunications Access Method (VTAM) or TCP/IP. User code or tools dependent on BTAM should migrate to VTAM or TCP/IP.

Performance considerations: IMS on a sysplex runs over 21,000 transactions per second (nearly two billion transactions per day).

  • The IBM performance group has been achieving extremely high transaction rates with IMS V9 running in a high-stress Sysplex environment using four IMS's on a single T-Rex processor and an IBM eServer zSeries 990 Model B16 (Type 2084, Model B16). IMS achieved 21,396 transactions per second (tps) at 99.65% CPU utilization and a DASD rate of 27,448 I/Os per second, all with database updates using the IMS Fast Path Shared Expedited Message Handling queue capability, 4-way Data Sharing, Shared Virtual Storage Option areas, and the new IMS V9 capability.
  • Using the new T-Rex processor and the IBM TotalStorage® Enterprise Storage Server™ Model 800 (Type 2105, Model 800), IMS reached 28.5 MB/second logging bandwidth. This shows that IMS scales up to large logging requirements for high-stress IMS activity such as Multiple Systems Coupling, and Shared Queues.
  • These performance tests demonstrate that nothing can match the performance of IMS and the zSeries in transaction rates and database access. Thus, IMS continues to lead the industry in the twenty-first century for driving your on demand solutions and all your business needs.

Additional considerations

  • Fast Path Area Open/Close enhancements: In IMS V9, 10 TCBs are created for Fast Path in the IMS control region. These new TCBs are designed for opening/closing Fast Path areas in parallel, reducing area open/close times. In conjunction with the implementation of the new code to exploit the ten new TCBs, the existing open/close code is also re-engineered to provide the optimum area open/close performance. The enhancements could improve the Fast Path area open by approximately 30 percent for cold start and warm start, and 20 percent for emergency restart.
  • DBRC enhancements: IMS V9 large tape block size support for batch image copies is invoked by specifying a block size greater than 32,760 bytes on the DCB of an output Image Copy DD statement. Subsequently, the output of such an Image Copy is used as input to the IMS DB Recovery Utility. The enhancements could improve the elapsed times for the Image Copy and IMS DB Recovery Utility by approximately 10 percent.

zSeries Usage Pricing (Usage License Charge) Basic License: To order a basic license, specify the appropriate program and feature number, if required, for asset registration. Specify the applicable S/390® and zSeries Usage Pricing feature. Also, specify the feature number of the desired distribution medium.

Charges will be based upon the peak MSUs. Usage reported between thresholds of features 1, 2, or 3, will be rounded up to the next MSU level. Above 1.0 MSU, usage will be rounded to the nearest whole MSU. For example, 2.4 MSUs would round to 2.0 MSUs for pricing, and 2.5 MSUs would round to 3.0 MSUs for pricing.

The customer pricing will be determined by selecting either:

  • Feature 1 (if usage is below 0.25 MSU)
  • Feature 2 (if usage is between 0.26 and 0.50)
  • Feature 3 (if usage is between 0.51 and 1.0)
  • Feature 3+ (# MSUs from 2-11 times the charge associated with feature number 4) + (# MSUs from 12-44 times the charge associated with feature number 5) + (# MSUs from 45-78 times the charge associated with feature number 6) + (# MSUs above 78 times the charge associated with feature number 7, if applicable)

Examples for ordering: A customer with a measured usage (from the IBM Measured Usage report) of 0.3 MSU would:

  • Order quantity 1 of the 0.26 to 0.5 MSU base feature

A customer with 6.6 MSUs (from the IBM Usage report) would:

  • Be rounded up to 7.0 MSUs
  • Order quantity 1 of the "0.51 to 1.0 MSU" base feature
  • Order quantity 6 of the Level A 1 MSU feature

A customer with 15 MSUs (from the IBM Usage report) would:

  • Order quantity 1 of the "0.51 to 1.0 MSU" base feature
  • Order quantity 10 of the Level A 1 MSU feature
  • Order quantity 4 of the Level B 1 MSU feature

A customer with 50 MSUs (from the IBM Usage report) would:

  • Order quantity 1 of the "0.51 to 1.0 MSU" base feature
  • Order quantity 10 of the Level A 1 MSU feature
  • Order quantity 33 of the Level B 1 MSU feature
  • Order quantity 6 of the Level C 1 MSU feature
