The Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server manages the contents and GUI presentation of the browser and desktop clients.

Monitoring data from applications and resources from systems and subsystems is collected by the monitoring agents and are passed on to the Tivoli Enterprise Management Server for data collection, filtering, correlation, and root cause analysis.

With IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 comes a new Tivoli Data Warehouse component based on a simplified database structure. The new data warehouse provides configuration and collection improvements. It delivers data for analysis and reporting through the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal. Administrative tasks for data aggregation, summarization, and pruning of historical data ease the management of long term data.

Enhancements include:

a) Simplified installation, intuitive interface, and simplified monitoring and management capabilities using simple point-and-click functions significantly improving time to value

b) Delivers new GUI via the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal component. This common, flexible and easy-to-use browser interface helps users to quickly isolate and resolve potential performance problems, across host and distributed platforms. Features of the Tivoli Enterprise Portal include:

Portal workspaces: Helps to quickly pull together metrics, dynamic charts, tables, and graphics while investigating specific performance problems and availability issues from multiple vantage points across heterogeneous platforms within the enterprise. Workspaces can be customized and stored to contain views of critical events and conditions with user-selectable charts and graphs. Personalized workspaces help users to:

  • View problems from multiple perspectives including enterprise, platform, and resource views-charts, graphics and dynamic tables enable substantial insight
  • Intuitively drill down to the source of contention and other problems
  • identify trends and develop capacity plans by leveraging views of historical data and statistics

This helps optimize staff productivity and application availability by minimizing the time spent hunting down the causes of slow performance.

Situations: IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 features supplied and customizable situations that you can use to detect and repair problems as they happen. Alerts can be tailored easily to help your environment and facilitate automatic resolution of recurring problems. Features that help you proactively manage your environment include:

  • Situation Editor is included to setup your own intelligent alerts and thresholds based on detailed and/or/logic that gives you the power to create granular notification and eliminate false alarms.
  • Take Action resolves recurring problems by running built-in scripts, or new scripts which can be easily created.
  • Expert Advice — When you receive an alert of a detailed explanation of the problem and potential fixes, use knowledge our of-the-box or edit the feature to preserve solutions specific to your environment.

Reporting: Advanced integrated reporting capabilities for both real-time and historical data collection through the Tivoli Data Warehouse component. Reports can be customized for user preferences so you see only the data that is important to you.

Workflow Automation: Enables you to solve complex system problems automatically using automated system processes called policies. Policies can be designed using the Workflow Editor, perform actions, schedule work to be performed by users or automate manual tasks.

c) The new smaller footprint does not require Tivoli Management Enterprise Framework to reduce total cost of ownership. More efficient data collection results in lower memory usage and CPU Utilization on managed systems. It does not require the Tivoli Framework for operation and deployment, reducing operational complexity.

d) Automatic IBM Tivoli Monitoring agent and patch deployment throughout your distributed enterprise.

e) Command line interface for improved management of your monitoring environment, including the ability to configure individual agents.

f) Programmable upgrade for existing Distributed Monitoring users to the IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 solutions to simplify and ease administration of upgrading the monitoring infrastructure.

g) Extends the IBM Tivoli Monitoring V 5.x environments. The resource model health and resource model metrics available from IBM Tivoli Monitoring 5.x environments are visualized into the Tivoli Enterprise Portal, and integrated into the new Tivoli Data Warehouse, along with the other capabilities of IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1.

h) Enhanced platform support for including infrastructure components including, Linux, z/Series support, and Linux on z/Series support.

Note: z/Series platform support is separately provided by the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services on z/OS® V6.1 program, and is also available for use with the mainframe OMEGAMON® suite of offerings.

i) Integration of the Tivoli Event Console into the Tivoli Enterprise Portal. Situations can send events directly to the Tivoli Enterprise Console®.

j) Extend monitoring to custom applications and network devices via the Universal Agent. The Tivoli Universal Agent collects information via numerous data providers, including FILE, SNMP, ODBC, HTTP, Socket, API, Post, and script to monitor almost any device or application in your network, and can then reveal consolidated views of performance and availability to help you diagnose and pinpoint problems more quickly. Perform agentless monitoring by collecting SNMP MIB, and WMI data, or by receiving monitoring information from scripts and programs running elsewhere in the network. Note: A separate license must be purchased to use the Tivoli Universal Agent for monitoring where no local IBM Tivoli Monitoring base endpoint resides.

k) Consolidated resource monitoring and management across the enterprise of mainframe and distributed environments via a single console, the Tivoli Enterprise Portal. The tighter integration with the IBM Tivoli Event Console helps bring true end-to-end management, increased efficiency and effectiveness of Availability Management and supporting processes, of enterprise systems and applications across the enterprise.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Databases V6.1

The IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Databases product consists of four management agents that help ensure the availability and optimal performance of IBM DB2, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and Sybase database servers. The use of these features can help to eliminate the typical Database Administrator (DBA) dilemma of determining what to monitor, when to monitor, and how to interpret and act upon the monitor results, leaving more time for the DBA to focus on more complex, less repetitive tasks. The primary objective is to provide routine, consistent monitoring and to help anticipate and correct problems before database performance and customer confidence is degraded.

All data captured by the management agents, including both real-time and historical, is delivered through the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal browser. Each of the management agents provides an "out-of-the-box" set of situations (based on IBM best practices) to help provide quick deployment and activation. Custom situations based on user-definable thresholds, and actions can also be defined by the DBA.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Databases V6.1 can help:

  • Monitor critical performance data and the status of components of database servers.
  • Provide real-time status and reporting on the availability and performance of critical database components through best-practices monitoring of key performance metrics.
  • Notify administrators and take automated actions. Out-of-box identification of common problems notifies administrators of potential issues and automates actions to help implement fixes before problems affect end users.
  • Collect monitoring data for use in historical reporting, performance analysis, trend prediction, and enterprise-wide business impact analysis.

Through the implementation of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Databases product, DBAs can be alerted when key performance and resource allocation problems are detected, and customers will maximize their return on investment by assisting them through increasing the efficiency of their IT staff, improving compliance to service-level objectives, and reducing costs of database system administration and deployment.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-based Pricing Terminology

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-based Pricing: IBM Tivoli software products are priced using IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-based Pricing system is based upon the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model, which uses a managed-environment approach — whereby the price is determined by what is managed rather than the number and type of product components installed.

For example, all servers monitored with IBM Tivoli's monitoring product (IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other IBM 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 IBM 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 IBM 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 of the server managed by the IBM Tivoli application to help correlate price to value while offering a simple solution.

Where a server is physically partitioned, this approach is modified. This partitioning technique is the approach used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. For servers capable of physical partitioning (for example, IBM's eServer pSeries® Scalable POWERparallel® Systems servers, Sun Ultra servers, and HP Superdome servers), an entitlement is required for each processor in the physical partition being managed by the IBM Tivoli application.

For example, assume that a server has 24 processors installed in aggregate. If this server is not partitioned, entitlements are required for all 24 processors. If, however, it is physically partitioned into three partitions each containing eight processors, and Tivoli products were managing only one of the three partitions, then entitlements would be required for the eight processors on the physical partition managed by the IBM Tivoli application.

For servers with virtual or logical partitions, entitlements are required for all installed and activated processors on the server. For each IBM Tivoli application managing a clustered environment, licensing is based on the cumulative number of installed and activated processors on each server in the cluster for each IBM Tivoli application managing the cluster. Where the cluster includes physically partitioned servers, the considerations described above concerning physically partitioned servers apply as well.

Enhanced Value-based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC/UNIX and Microsoft Windows/Intel technologies, in order to simplify the customer's licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does not differentiate between non-zSeries server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to zSeries and other host servers as well.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-based Pricing terminology definitions

Client Device or Client

Client Device or Client A client device is a computer system that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work.

Examples include, but are not limited to, notebook computers, desktop computers, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, personal digital assistants, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and KIOSKs.

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 zSeries or OS/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM Integrated Facility for Linux should not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS, OS/390, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems/applications. There is, as indicated, a charge associated with the IFL, and there may also be a charge for applications which run on the IFL.

Millions of Service Units (MSU)

An MSU is defined as millions of Central Processing Unit (CPU) service units per hour; the measure of capacity used to describe the computing power of the hardware processors on which S/390® or zSeries software runs. Processor MSU values are determined by the hardware vendor, IBM, or Software Compatible Vendors (SCVs).

Partitions

A server's resources (CPU, memory, I/O, interconnects and buses) may be divided according to the needs of the applications running on the server. This partitioning can be implemented with physical boundaries ("Physical Partitions") or logical boundaries ("Logical Partitions").

Physical Partitions are defined by a collection of processors dedicated to a workload and can be used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. In this method, the partitions are divided along hardware boundaries and processors, and the I/O boards, memory and interconnects are not shared.

Logical Partitions are defined by software rather than hardware and allocate a pool of processing resources to a collection of workloads. These partitions, while separated by software boundaries, share hardware components and run in one or more physical partitions.

Processor

Processor ("per Processor" charging under Full Capacity) In Full Capacity charging, Proof of Entitlements (PoE) must be acquired for all activated "processors" (available for use) that are on the server where the Program or a component of the program is run.

Notes

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the zSeries IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  5. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the program is run.
  6. When a server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are "inactive," four processors are active for the customer.

Managed Processor (charging under Full Capacity in the "managed environment") charges are based on the active processors on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the program rather than on the server where the program is run.

With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. The program may NOT RUN on SOME OR ALL of the processors for which PoEs are required by the program's valuation method.
  4. In the zSeries IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  5. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.
  6. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blades with which the program is affiliated.

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more clients and/or other devices over a network. Examples include, but are not limited to, file servers, print servers, mail servers, database servers, application servers, and Web servers.

Standby or Backup Systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm, and hot. In the 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 another license or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if they are 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, and so on), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

Value Units

A Value Unit is a metric used to compute license quantities, is program specific, and is typically only used on products managing zSeries systems.

Passport Advantage: Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, customers 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 Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage, the 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:"

  1. Analyze the customer environment to determine the number of Tivoli Management Points or other charge unit for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determined by that analysis.
  2. 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 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 Tivoli product part number. The sum of these Passport Advantage points determines the "Passport Advantage point value" of the applicable 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.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring Family

IBM Tivoli Monitoring Solutions

The IBM Tivoli Monitoring Solutions are a family of programs that help to monitor and manage distributed environments. The family consists of an IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program and various IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Programs.

The IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program is comprised of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring foundation and various operating system agents. The IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Programs are solutions that are each comprised of various application agents designed to monitor and manage specific application area(s) (for example, the IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Databases Program may be comprised of DB2, MS SQL, Oracle, and Sybase agents).

Each server with an IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Program is based on, and requires licensing and deployment of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program as a prerequisite.

Customers are entitled to use any or all of the application agents that are delivered with an IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Program for each server licensed. Licensing is required for each server which deploys any or all of the application agents provided in a specific IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Program.

The IBM Tivoli Monitoring Solutions are licensed by the Managed Processor.

Pricing Example 1

IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program

The customer's core environment requiring the IBM TIvoli Monitoring Program includes:

Distributed servers

  • Twenty uniprocessors
  • Sixty-five 2-way servers
  • Twelve 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 Tivoli applications)
  • One 24-way server
  • One z800 Server with two uni-Processor IFLs running LINUS (also known as, zLinux or Linux on zSeries)

Note: zLinux or Linux on zSeries offerings may not be available for all Tivoli programs. This licensing example assumes such availability. Linux on zSeries offerings have distinctly orderable part numbers in Passport Advantage, and should be used when ordering entitlements for IFLs running Linux.

Pricing for programs without a Linux on zSeries offering will exclude the z800 Server entitlement requirement indicated in the following text:

The customer requires the following entitlements for the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program (266 managed processors):

                           Quantity in        Processor

Pricing Example 2

IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Programs

In addition to the core environment described above (266 Managed Processor entitlement requirement for the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program), the customer decides to monitor 10 two-way database Servers (five DB2 and five Oracle). The customer must obtain the following entitlements:

                       Quantity in          Processor
                       Customer             Entitlements
Systems Managed        Environment          Required
 
2-way                  10                     20
Total Processor                               20
 Entitlements

Note that licensing of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program is required for every Server with an IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Program. Therefore, in this example, if the customer's two database servers are incremental to the Servers described in the core environment, the customer also requires 20 additional Managed Processor entitlements of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program for the new database servers.

Licensing is valid for any agent supported by the IBM Tivoli Monitoring for (specific application) Program.

You are only authorized to install the IBM Tivoli Universal Agent V6.1 on the same designated processors on which you have proof of entitlement to install:

  1. IBM Tivoli Monitoring V5.x monitoring agents (IBM Tivoli Monitoring Proactive Analysis Components or "PACs"
  2. Distributed Monitoring agents (Tivoli Manager for products), or;
  3. IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 program with rights to use the following monitoring agents (Tivoli Monitoring with either (a) Windows OS Agent, (b) UNIX OS Agent, (c) UNIX Log Agent, (d) Linux OS Agent, or (e)i5/OS Agent). You may use the IBM Tivoli Universal Agent solely for the purpose of monitoring data on the designated processor and not for any other purpose.

Installation and use of the IBM Tivoli Universal Agent, except as provided here, requires the payment of additional license fees. For example, if you want to use the IBM Tivoli Universal Agent without purchasing an IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 program, or to monitor devices external to the designated processor, you must pay a separate license fee.

Example: If the customer wants to use the IBM Tivoli Universal Agent across the following environment, the customer requires 20 additional Universal Agent Agent "Managed Processor" entitlements and eight "Client Device" entitlements.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor

In Full Capacity charging — PoEs must be acquired for all activated "processors" (available for use) that are on the server where the Program or a component of the program is run.

  1. If there are program components included in the offering whose function is not to be included in the charge metric, these must be listed in the program-unique terms of the License Information.
  2. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  3. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. Unless otherwise announced, with multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  4. In the zSeries IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  5. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.
  6. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the Program is run.

Per managed processor charging under Full Capacity

Charges are based on the active processors on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the program rather than on the server where the program is run. The managed processors which require PoEs are defined both in the Prices section or the License Information's program-unique terms.

Notes

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each core to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. The Program may NOT RUN on SOME OR ALL of the processors for which PoEs are required by the Program's valuation method.
  4. In the zSeries' IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  5. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.
  6. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade(s) with which the Program is affiliated.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the Program.
