Description

IBM offers more than 70 tools that feature common interfaces and cross-tool integration, tested under the same configurations and workloads as the databases they support. As we enter the era of autonomic computing, DB2, IMS, and WebSphere tools will become increasingly self-managed in terms of dynamically monitoring and managing data, and taking responsibility for decision making and initiating action.

Application management

DB2 Data Archive Expert z/OS, V2 (5697-J22) is a comprehensive data archiving tool that enables you to move seldom-used data to a less costly storage medium, without any programming. You can save storage space and associated costs, while improving the performance of your DB2 Universal Database® environment.

New Version 2 features give you the ability to:

  • Migrate a Data Archive Expert (DAE) specification from one set of DAE metadata tables (such as a test environment) to a different set of DAE metadata tables (such as a production environment)
  • Recognize when a column has been added to a source table and update the existing specification definition and ALTER the archive target tables
  • Allow the deletion of archive specification definitions and retrieve specification definitions and their associated data
  • Optionally run a specification in batch via the ISPF interface
  • Use a Web-based user interface for single point of access to DAE specifications on multiple platforms
  • Preview the data returned by the starting point table row filter
  • Archive cross-platform within the DB2 Data Archive Expert product family (z/OS, UNIX®, Windows™, Linux™), between entitled installed products
    • DB2 Data Archive Expert for z/OS
    • DB2 Data Archive Expert for Multiplatforms (5724-L30)

DB2 Test Database Generator for z/OS, V2.2 (5697-I02) gives you the ability to create test data for databases and compare DB2 tables. You can specify data sources (database tables, XML, or text files) that can be used to supply seed data to be used to create test data. Sets of generation rules, or actions, can be defined that are to be applied to the source data when the test data is generated, or they can be used to create test data from scratch. These generation rules specify how the data will be changed in order to make seed data nonsensitive or how the data will be created from scratch so that it mimics real data. DB2 Test Database Generator for z/OS can access DB2 database locations on z/OS.

Key Version 2.2 enhancements allow you to:

  • Compare and synchronize DB2 tables
  • Launch DB2 Test Database Generator from the DB2 Control Center
  • Include the updatable optimizer-related DB2 catalog statistics of a source table with the source data so that the DB2 catalog statistics are re-created in the target
  • Specify that all SQL that is used for sources is to be executed with the WITH UR option
  • Have greater control over generated RI
  • Update your existing target data without deleting it entirely and then re-creating it
  • Use expanded options when generating DB2 load format output
  • Use XML data as a source for data generation
  • Speed up test data generation through concurrent generation of targets at generation time
  • Generate range extremes in the test data that is created
  • Accept locally encoded sources and generate locally encoded outputs
  • Guarantee uniqueness in generated values
  • Create your own generation rules using Java™
  • View and select from all Grouper component sets

Database administration

Data Encryption for IMS and DB2 Databases (5655-P03) is a tool that provides you with data encryption for both IBM Information Management System (IMS) databases and IBM DB2 Universal Database (UDB) for z/OS tables, enabling you to protect your sensitive and private data for IMS and DB2.

The need for data encryption has moved to the forefront of technology concerns, with the increased demand for data privacy and security. IBM Data Encryption for IMS and DB2 Databases addresses this need. The product delivers the capability to leverage the zSeries® and S/390® Crypto Hardware to efficiently secure sensitive and private data at the IMS segment and DB2 row level.

Data Encryption for IMS and DB2 Databases provides:

  • Four pre-coded exits that invoke the z/OS Integrated Cryptographic Service Facility (ICSF), which exploits the Crypto Hardware for data encryption and decryption:
    • Two for ICSF Clear Key (one DB2 and one IMS)
    • Two for ICSF Secure Key encryption (one DB2 and one IMS)
  • Four sample implementation jobs
  • An ISPF front end to tailor and build implementation jobs
  • The capability to specify unique encryption keys
  • Internalized encryption parameters for added key protection

IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS (5655-P01) increases the manageability of an IMS Sysplex environment. This new product contains features that assist you in managing data sharing, shared queues, and IBM IMS V8, and later, Common Service Layer (CSL) components. It extends and complements the existing IMS tools product portfolio by providing functions that have been sought by customers and are not otherwise available from IMS and vendors.

IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS supports Internal Resource Lock Manager (IRLM) data sharing long-lock detection. IRLM locks that are held for an extended period of time are automatically detected and reported through IMS Sysplex Manager's alert facility. The report helps you resolve problems and includes vital information about lock holders and waiters. The alert facility easily integrates with existing customer-automated operations software.

The alert facility also provides information about critical events that can occur in a shared message queues environment. Shared queues alerts include structure overflow events, connection and structure failures, log stream failures, and structure checkpoints. Shared queues support also includes access to structure statistics and structure content with or without the availability of an IMS system.

IMS Sysplex Manager offers enhanced Coupling Facility Structure displays within a single consolidated report for all major IMS Coupling Facility structures. You no longer need to obtain this information from multiple sources.

IMS Sysplex Manager also provides several unique features:

  • An IMS Resource Manager (RM) interface allows you to view and delete resource definitions that might otherwise require an RM cold start.
  • IMSplex support provides access to Structured Call Interface (SCI), RM, Operations Manager (OM), local, and aggregated statistical information that is not available with other tools.

IMS Sysplex Manager provides a simple, easy-to-use TSO/ISPF interface that is designed for both experienced and inexperienced users. The user interface provides a dynamic list of Sysplex components as well as a task-oriented, drill-down capability.

One of the most powerful features of this new product is its ability to consolidate and integrate information from multiple systems in a Sysplex. The integrated displays are especially useful for synchronizing IMS systems. For instance, system initialization parameters from multiple IMS systems can be viewed and compared. Similarly, resource definitions and status for transactions, programs, databases, logical terminals (LTERMs), nodes, or route codes from multiple IMS systems can be viewed on a single display. IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS provides seamless integration with the IMS Single Point of Control (SPOC) for "one-stop" operations of your IMS Sysplex. IMS Sysplex Manager also extends SPOC system grouping support for IMS type 1 commands. IMS "/" commands can be routed to any SPOC-defined group or IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS-defined group.

Performance management

DB2 Query Monitor for z/OS, V2.2 (5697-I03) enables you to tune SQL workload and DB2 objects efficiently to ensure the effectiveness of your DB2 subsystems. DB2 Query Monitor's enterprise deployment capability enables you to leverage the additional function provided by the open systems architecture and provides the information necessary to accurately assess and manage SQL workload.

The following new features are provided:

  • IBM DB2 Visual Explain integration in the Consolidation and Analysis Engine (CAE)
  • Failover server capability
  • New profile options for treatment of SQL codes
  • Displaying all SQL codes triggered by a given event
  • Filtering in summary displays
  • Collecting and displaying package version information

  • Home button in CAE client
  • Batch control file loader
  • Ability to override OPTKEYS parameters for a workload
  • Enhancements to loading Query Monitor data to DB2

The new features are described in the Discretionary information section.

Recovery management

DB2 Change Accumulation Tool for z/OS, V1.4 (5655-F55) helps DB2 administrators minimize data recovery time by efficiently keeping current and consistent data images more readily available. DB2 Change Accumulation Tool enables you to set the scope and specificity of image copy creation, create mini logs that hold backup information about objects of interest, and quickly restore specific database objects with precision and minimal disruption.

The following new features are provided:

  • Generate Shrlvl Reference Image Copies when possible: DB2 Change Accumulation Tool now enables you to generate Shrlvl Reference Imagecopies when possible, when there is no previous Shrlvl Reference Imagecopy.
  • Recover PIT tablespace using option Write Mode: DB2 Change Accumulation Tool now enables you to perform partial recoveries and to stop short of the end of the log when writing to the VSAM file.
  • Output dynamic allocation failure reason codes with message GGC1600I: When dynamic allocation fails, the DB2 Change Accumulation Tool produces message GGC1600I. The DB2 Change Accumulation Tool now provides additional information about the failure by including any dynamic allocation reason codes in the GGC1600I message.
  • Dump the report utility output that GGC receives to sysout=* when a non-zero return code comes back: The DB2 Change Accumulation Tool now writes output from the IBM utility to a sysout=* dataset to enable problem resolution by end users. If the utility comes back with an error, a -term command can be issued to clean up sysutilx.
  • Use new option LOGPOINT for a list of tablespaces: The DB2 Change Accumulation Tool previously required that the END_RBA/ END_LRSN control cards, if entered, be included in each SPACE() set. DB2 Change Accumulation Tool has now factored the END_RBA/END_LRSN control cards out to the GROUP() level. Additionally, when using the online interface, Change Accum generates the END_RBA/END_LRSN control cards once at the GROUP() level if the SPACE() level parms are all the same.
  • Force image copies: The DB2 Change Accumulation Tool now offers a new control card, FORCE_COPY, that duplicates the old image copy (perhaps full plus multiple incrementals) into a new image copy, even if no mini logs or log records are found following the last image copy.
  • Use additional method for incremental image copy processing: The DB2 Change Accumulation Tool now enables an additional method for incremental image copy processing. Instead of sorting the entirety of the incremental image copies all at once as input to the merge process, the new method takes open groups of image copies that pertain to the currently processed space and merges them instead. This eliminates the time and I/O required for a large sort.
  • Read logs in parallel: DB2 Change Accumulation Tool's processing method has been changed to read the data sharing members' logs in parallel instead of one at a time. For example, if there are five data sharing members, then all five will be read at the same time. The reading of logs in parallel enhances performance by reducing the time spent reading data sharing members' logs (which were previously read one at a time).

WebSphere information integration

WebSphere Information Integrator Classic Event Publisher for Software AG Adabas, V8.2 (5655-P12) makes it easy to deliver data events to data warehousing, workflow processing, and application integration environments. It captures database changes to Software AG Adabas by means of an Adabas logging exit (active) or the Adabas log (background). Any application or service that integrates either with WebSphere MQ directly or supports Java Message Service (JMS) can asynchronously receive the data changes as they occur.

WebSphere Information Integrator Classic Event Publisher for Software AG Adabas enables database events to initiate business processes. For example, a change in an inventory value could be used to drive a product restocking workflow, or the addition of a new customer could initiate welcome e-mail, credit verification, and accounting update. This creates an application-independent, loosely coupled integration that is more adaptable to changing application environments. For example, while multiple applications may impact the value of the inventory level, a single point of integration (the data items) is driving the workflow. Changes to the applications that impact the inventory level can be made with no impact on the event-driven integration. Businesses can realize faster time to market, based on integration that captures the event in a single location, is more stable, and is easier to maintain.

Additionally, WebSphere Information Integrator Classic Event Publisher for Software AG Adabas can deliver changes to Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) tools or custom-built processes for updating operational data stores or data warehouses, minimizing bandwidth requirements and keeping target databases more closely in synch. Thus, businesses can utilize information that is far more current for tactical and operational decision making.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of their planned 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 pricing for eligible zSeries IPLA programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each zSeries IPLA product with Value Unit pricing has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for customers. For each zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the "required license capacity." Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three-digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three-digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offer additional price benefits for customers. The quantity of each zSeries IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as "entitled license capacity." If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a zSeries IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit Pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to Value Units or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool Web site

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

To determine the required license capacity for the zSeries IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

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.

Technical information

Hardware requirements

The products in this announcement, other than Data Encryption for IMS and DB2 Databases, will operate on any hardware S/390® configuration that supports the required versions of DB2 and IMS.

Data Encryption for IMS and DB2 Databases requires:

  • z/OS Integrated Cryptographic Service Facility (ICSF), which only runs on processors that support the IBM Cryptographic Coprocessor Feature (CCF). These processors include, for example, G3, G4, G5, G6, Multiprise® 2000, Multiprise 3000, or IBM eServer zSeries®.
  • The hardware CCF modules:
    • Must be enabled with configuration data, a separately orderable feature
    • Require a processor Power-On-Reset (POR) to complete the loading of the data into the cryptographic modules
  • z990 processors require a PCIXCC card.
  • Clear Key data encryption requires:
    • A z890 or z990 server

For each IBM eServer zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the "required license capacity." Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The zSeries IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full-capacity or sub-capacity

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

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected zSeries IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

              Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
            MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
 
Base          3     *      1.00         =      3.00
Tier A       42     *       .45         =     18.90
Tier B      130     *       .36         =     46.80
Tier C      140     *       .27         =     37.80
Tier D    1,185     *       .20         =    237.00
 
Total     1,500                              343.50

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

Full-capacity Mainframes: In cases where full-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

Execution-based, z/OS-based, Full-Machine-based: The required capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The System/370™, System/390®, and zSeries Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901) or visit the "Mainframes" section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

Reference-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the "parent" program.

Sub-capacity Mainframes: In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

Execution-based: The required capacity of a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

z/OS-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS (and z/OS.e) on the machines where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

Reference-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the "parent" program.

Full Machine-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with full machine-based terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The System/370, System/390, and zSeries Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901) or visit the "Mainframes" section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

For more information on sub-capacity zSeries IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement 204-184 , dated August 10, 2004.

Additional information for products with reference-based terms

zSeries IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in the environment the zSeries IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single/stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. Customers may have one or more different environments across their enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each zSeries IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment, the required license capacity of the zSeries IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  1. That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement 198-001 , dated January 13, 1998
  2. Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the Sysplex

Sub-capacity eligibility: To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select zSeries IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be zSeries (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS (or z/OS.e) operating systems
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
  • All instances of the z/OS operating (or z/OS.e) systems must be running in z/Architecture™ (64-bit) mode

For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the zSeries Software Pricing Web site

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for zSeries Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for z800 and z890 Software License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract — Amendment for zSeries Platform Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929-02, or higher). Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous zSeries IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the utilization of a sub-capacity eligible reference product and machine.

On/Off Capacity on Demand

To be eligible for On/Off Capacity on Demand pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract — Z125-6611, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer® On/Off Capacity on Demand — Software — must be signed prior to use.
