Description

IBM offers more than 80 tools that feature common interfaces and cross-tool integration, tested under the same configurations and workloads as the databases they support. In the emerging era of autonomic computing, DB2 and IMS 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 Path Checker for z/OS, V3.1 (5697-N57) helps you increase the stability of your DB2 environments and avoid painful and costly disruptions. It can help you discover and correct unwanted and unexpected access path changes before you are notified about them.

The new functions include:

  • ISPF to support access to the compare function.
  • //BINDIN to generate commands from bind control cards. Path Checker will parse the bind control cards and perform a Path Checker command for each plan or package specified for BIND or REBIND.
  • COMPARE TO PREVIOUS VERSION will skip multiple binds for the latest version and compare the access path to the prior version. This is useful when a program has been rebound multiple times due to an access path issue.
  • A history table for a summary of changes detected in Path Checker processing. This table contains the same information as the SYSCHG ddname report.
  • ANLOUT support for the COMPARE command if the full SQL is available in SYSIBM.SYSSTMT or SYSIBM.SYSPACKSTMT.
  • DSN_STATEMNT_TABLE data has been added to EXPLAIN TO processing so the cost estimates will be saved when the access data is saved.
  • Structure change summary is included in the SYSPRINT report when the tables are accessed in a different sequence.
  • OPTIONS CREATE TABLES create PLAN_TABLE and DSN_STATEMNT_TABLE if the tables are not predefined.
  • The SYSPRINT report headings are improved and all DEGREE ANY access data is in a separate line.

Database administration

DB2 Audit Management Expert for z/OS, V1.1 (5655-I16) provides the ability to selectively audit inserts, updates, deletes, and reads in DB2 systems. DB2 Audit Management Expert can help your IT staff meet the ever-growing requirements placed on them for achieving regulatory compliance. This easy-to-use tool allows you to view all reported activity on specific DB2 objects (such as read, change, and utility access), generate meaningful reports to report on the data collected in the audit repository, and perform a log analysis of collected data.

DB2 Audit Management Expert separates the roles of auditing and database administration, freeing up valuable resources needed to support auditing requests. It removes the requirement that auditors be privileged users on the systems they are auditing. Used in combination with DB2 Data Archive Expert for z/OS, V2.1 (5697-J22), DB2 Audit Management Expert provides a comprehensive audit retention strategy for the enterprise to help you take control and maintain standards in today's regulatory environment.

  • Centralized easy-to-use tools for your auditing needs.

    The reporting interface is designed for auditors to facilitate common auditing tasks such as determining who updated a particular object in a certain time frame or monitoring unauthorized access for specific systems or objects. In addition, auditors can perform detailed log analysis for any changes being monitored by DB2 Audit Management Expert.

  • Customized data collection capabilities.

    Filter policies can be defined for the collection of audit data. Data collection can be filtered based on any combination of:

    • DB2 objects
    • DB2 user IDs
    • Applications connecting to DB2
    • Time

    The filters can be exported or imported using XML files to other audit servers, or assigned to another DB2 system within the same audit server. This allows for filters created for common tables, such as SAP, to be created once and then used at other DB2 servers where the same application tables are installed.

  • Comprehensive reporting facilities with multiple options to view and report on collected data.

    Robust reporting options enable auditors to view and report on data from several perspectives:

    • Overview of all the subsystems currently being monitored
    • Subsystem view of activity for a selected subsystem
    • Detail view for a particular type of activity for a selected subsystem
  • A separate administration user interface.

    The separate user-friendly administration interface enables product administrators to easily define Audit Management Expert entities such as users and groups and collection criteria. The interface presents administrative tasks in readily identifiable categories such as Users, Groups, and Collection Profiles. It employs a series of easy-to-use wizards to guide the administrator through each administrative task.

  • Detailed log analysis.

    To report on data changes, the log analysis feature gives you the ability to:

    • Set filtering criteria for reporting data changes by date ranges and Insert, Update, and Delete activity.
    • View who modified audited tables in a DB2 system and see the actual changes made to the tables.
    • Easily input the information needed for log analysis. Selection capability is provided to allow you to refine the amount of information returned.

IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS, V1.2 (5655-P01) helps IMS system programmers, operations personnel, DBAs, and help-desk personnel administer an IMS Sysplex environment by centralizing Sysplex information through a single interface. This enables you to drill down to the areas you need to access in order to keep IMS availability high. The tool provides features that assist you in managing data sharing, shared message queues, and IMSplex Common Service layer components such as the Operations Manager, Resource Manager, and Structured Call Interface.

The following new features and enhancements are included:

  • Ability to query IMS resources across IMSplex by status or attribute
  • Enhanced Dependent Region display with more filtering criteria and ability to issue commands
  • Consolidated master terminal operator messages across an IMSplex in an audit log
  • IMS command and response journal for audit and trouble-shooting purposes
  • Automatic archive function for log data
  • Enhanced shared queue support:
    • Destination filtering
    • Delete
    • Browse
    • Recover messages from cold queue
  • Type-2 command support and IMSplex-wide capability for commands against resources
  • Enhanced panel navigation for quick movement from one resource display to another
  • Commands issued from IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS share the same security RACF® profile with IMS
  • Basic z/OS address space information such as CPU time and storage usage for IMS-related address spaces

Information integration

New products and new product versions offer enhanced data replication and data event publishing capabilities as part of the full Information Integration Solutions portfolio, which delivers information you can trust.

WebSphere Data Event Publisher for z/OS, V9.1 (5655-R56) is the next version of WebSphere Information Integrator Event Publisher for DB2 Universal Database (UDB) for z/OS, V8.2 (5655-M36). It makes it easy for data events to initiate business processes. Database changes in DB2 UDB for z/OS are captured, formatted into self-describing XML messages, and published to WebSphere MQ message queues. These changed data events can then be received and used by WebSphere application and process integration middleware, by a Java™ Message Service-aware application or tool, or by a message broker to drive subsequent processing.

Event publishing provides efficient changed-data publishing environments for the following types of business scenarios:

  • Application-to-application integration. Changed-data event publishing makes it possible to push operational customer data to a packaged Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application.
  • Business process initiation. Changed-data event publishing allows a customer record to initiate a welcome e-mail, credit verification, and an update to the CRM system.
  • Critical data event monitoring. Changed-data event monitoring allows events such as low inventory levels to trigger a process such as product restocking workflow.
  • Data population. Changed-data event publishing can feed a data warehouse, data mart, or operational data store by pushing changed data to IBM WebSphere DataStage® or another extract, transform, and load product that then populates the data store.

Refer to the Supplemental information section for information about WebSphere Data Event Publisher enhancements.

WebSphere Data Integration Connector for z/OS, V9.1 (5655-R93) is a new product that provides all the data event publishing capabilities of WebSphere Data Event Publisher for z/OS, V9.1 (5655-R56) at a lower price but licensed specifically for use with IBM WebSphere DataStage, WebSphere QualityStage, and other selected products in the Information Integration Solutions portfolio. WebSphere Data Integration Connector is ideal for you if you plan to use data event publishing only with these selected Information Integration Solutions products. WebSphere Data Event Publisher for z/OS is the right product for you if you want to leverage the benefits of data event publishing more broadly; for example, for monitoring critical events, initiating business processes, and for application-to-application integration.

WebSphere Replication Server for z/OS, V9.1 (5655-R55) provides an enhanced level of the SQL-based data replication and queue-based data replication (Q replication) that is available today in WebSphere Information Integrator Replication for z/OS, V8.2 (5655-L88).

WebSphere Replication Server for z/OS is packaged such that you can purchase SQL-based replication or Q replication or both. Recognizing the unique value of each replication approach as well as the increased value of using the two approaches together, the product has these separately priced features:

  • WebSphere Replication Server for Q Replicating of DB2 for z/OS
  • WebSphere Replication Server for SQL Replicating of DB2 for z/OS
  • WebSphere Replication Server for SQL Replicating and Q Replicating of DB2 for z/OS

A restricted use license of WebSphere MQ for z/OS, V6.0.1 (5655-L82) is included with WebSphere Replication Server.

In addition to changes in product packaging, WebSphere Replication Server introduces:

  • Significant performance improvements for increased scalability
  • A new Q replication target type (Consistent Changed Data tables, or CCDs) that provides a Q replication solution for auditing and analysis applications and an opportunity to move to Q replication if you use SQL replication
  • Many enhancements that simplify administration and monitoring for Q replication

Refer to the Supplemental information section for:

  • Additional information on WebSphere Replication Server enhancements
  • Migration information if you have one of:
    • DB2 DataPropagator™ for z/OS, V8.2
    • WebSphere Information Integrator Replication for z/OS, V8.2

Transaction management

IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS, V2.1 (5655-R58) has no peers when it comes to processing IMS commands across as many as 64 IMS regions on any number of z/OS images. It provides database command response verification and command conversion, and simulates IMS responses. IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS, V2.1 offers the following new features and enhancements:

  • IMS Command Control Facility Message Log improves problem determination and system operation whether running a single IMS or a multi-IMSplex by:
    • Using the IMS Automated Operator Interface (AOI) exit (DFSAOE00) to write messages to a z/OS Logger log stream while still supporting a user AOI exit
    • Tracking IMS commands and responses issued from the IMS Operations Manager (OM)
    • Optionally, defining a z/OS Logger log stream to the Coupling Facility and sharing the IMS Command Control Facility message log between all members of an IMSplex
    • Providing an ISPF dialog to issue commands to a single IMS or all members of an IMSplex while viewing the active IMS Command Control Facility message log
    • Archiving the IMS Command Control Facility message log for historical problem determination
    • Viewing commands and responses for a particular user or node
  • IMS Operations Manager support. IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS, V1.1 requires Advanced Program-to-Program Communication (APPC)/IMS or APPC/z/OS to route commands to other z/OS images. Adding IMS OM support to IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS, V2.1 provides additional flexibility by:
    • Issuing commands to non-APPC-enabled IMS regions running in different z/OS images
    • Supporting IMS type-2 (OM) commands
    • Formatting IMS type-2 (OM) command responses
  • Additional wildcard support for:
    • /ASSIGN commands with the TRAN parameter
    • /START, /STOP, and /DISPLAY PROGRAM commands
  • Message Disposition Determination. Many customers use the AOI user exit to either suppress messages destined for the secondary master or route messages to alternate destinations. With IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS, V2.1, you can improve/eliminate customer-written code. It:
    • Suppresses messages from the IMS secondary master
    • Suppresses messages from the IMS Command Control Facility message log
    • Routes messages to an alternate destination
    • Provides an ISPF dialog to manage the list of messages for which IMS Command Control Facility is to determine the disposition
    • Dynamically refreshes the list of messages without IMS restart

Utilities management

IMS High Performance Pointer Checker for z/OS, V2.2 (5655-K53) helps you efficiently manage many database reorganization activities. When used regularly, IMS HP Pointer Checker helps ensure that your database pointers are error-free — alerting you when it is time to perform reorganization of your database.

To assist DBAs in analyzing corrupt databases, IMS HP Pointer Checker provides important information that helps to reduce the time spent handling diagnostics and repairs. The tool detects and reports space utilization, as well as physical and logical direct pointer problems in HDAM, HIDAM, HISAM, and HALDB, along with secondary index databases. These reports reveal errors and their locations within the database, facilitating system tuning and optimization.

IMS HP Pointer Checker for z/OS, V2.2 contains all features and functions of the previous release and includes the following enhancements:

  • Ease of use:
    • Site default
    • History data set maintenance improvement
  • Fast, easy detection of database status:
    • Error descriptions in HASH checking
    • Exception notification in HP Pointer Checker and Space Monitor
    • Monitoring database data set size in Space Monitor
  • All maintenance provided for IMS HP Pointer Checker for z/OS, V2.1 is included in the new release.

IMS Parallel Reorganization for z/OS, V3.2 (5655-M28) integrates the following IMS tools for database reorganization and operates them in a single job step:

  • IMS High Performance Unload for OS/390® (5655-E06)
  • IMS High Performance Load for z/OS, V2.1 (5655-M26)
  • IMS Index Builder for z/OS, V2.3 (5655-E24)
  • IMS High Performance Image Copy for z/OS, V3.2 (5655-K96), or IMS High Performance Image Copy for z/OS, V4.1 (5655-N45)
  • IMS High Performance Pointer Checker for z/OS, V2.2 (5655-K53)
  • IMS High Performance Prefix Resolution for z/OS, V3.1 (5655-M27)

IMS Parallel Reorganization for z/OS, V3.2 provides all of the features and functions of Version 3.1 and has the following enhancements:

  • Automated /STA DB after reorganization. IMS Parallel Reorganization now issues IMS commands to IMS online subsystems. The /STA DB command is issued automatically after completion of the database reorganization. The /DBD and the /DBR command can also be issued before starting the database reorganization. The results of the commands on each subsystem are shown in detail in a new report.
  • Using an unload data set as input. A new option is added to IMS Parallel Reorganization to enable the use of an unload data set as an input data set. This new option allows you to use IMS Parallel Reorganization as a reload utility to which one or more optional functions can be added; for example, IMS Index Builder, IMS High Performance Prefix Resolution, and IMS High Performance Image Copy with IMS High Performance Pointer Checker. These functions run concurrently and directly access the database data sets, instead of the shadow data sets. All types of record formats supported by the IMS Parallel Reorganization Unload utility can be used.

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. Because 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 offers 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 want 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.

Additional information

WebSphere® Data Event Publisher for z/OS®, V9.1 (5655-R56) facilitates business integration by linking changed data events with business processes. WebSphere Data Event Publisher enhancements include:

  • Performance. Q Capture performance is improved by providing additional multi-threading. Log reading and the gathering of committed transactions is now asynchronous to the rest of the data capture activities. This change helps the performance of Q Capture in all environments and especially in DB2® for z/OS data sharing configurations.
  • Customization. More flexibility is provided for managing storage requirements in a Q replication environment. If you have high volumes of changes during load operations, then you will likely experience increased scalability because of this enhancement.
  • Usability. Additional integration with WebSphere MQ is achieved by presenting lists of WebSphere MQ objects when needed during setup, and by checking these WebSphere MQ objects against the requirements of the Q replication engine program. The Replication Alert Monitor has been enhanced to provide the ability to suspend the monitor program during specified periods. A new live monitor tool graphically displays real-time latency and throughput information. You can see at a glance the current latency and throughput and replication program activity.
  • Interactive MQ Checklist. This is a dynamic graphical checklist used to set up the WebSphere MQ objects needed for Q replication. Setup scripts and a customized procedure for running the scripts are automatically generated for use at each MQ server.

WebSphere Replication Server for z/OS, V9.1 (5655-R55)

Q replication delivers low-latency, high-throughput replication with managed conflict detection and resolution to support business continuity and workload distribution. Committed changes are published to WebSphere MQ message queues. A sophisticated apply engine determines transaction dependencies and replays transactions on target systems to maximize parallelism and minimize latency. Data can be replicated to and from DB2 databases on System z™ or, by interoperating with WebSphere Replication Server for Linux™, UNIX®, or Windows™, data can be replicated to and from DB2 databases on Linux, UNIX, and Windows. Data can also be replicated from supported DB2 sources to other relational database management systems like Informix™, Oracle, MS SQL Server, and Sybase.

Q replication enhancements include:

  • Performance. The performance of Q replication data capture (Q Capture) is improved by providing additional multi-threading. Log reading and the gathering of committed transactions is now asynchronous to the rest of the data capture activities. This change helps the performance of Q Capture in all environments and especially in DB2 for z/OS data sharing configurations.
  • New replication target type. Q replication can now be used to replicate data into uniquely structured target tables (CCDs) that can be used for audit and history tables in the same way as can be done with SQL replication. If you use Q replication, this provides important capability, or if you use SQL replication today, it gives you the opportunity to move to Q replication if you choose.
  • Customization. More flexibility is provided for managing storage requirements for loads in a Q replication environment by allowing model queues to be defined at the subscription level. If you have high volumes of changes during load operations, then you will likely experience increased scalability because of this enhancement.
  • Usability. Additional integration with WebSphere MQ is achieved by presenting lists of WebSphere MQ objects when needed during setup, and by checking these WebSphere MQ objects against the requirements of the Q replication engine program. The Replication Alert Monitor has been enhanced to provide the ability to suspend the monitor program during specified periods. A new live monitor tool graphically displays real-time latency and throughput information. You will be able to see at a glance the current latency and throughput and replication program activity.
  • Interactive MQ Checklist. This is a dynamic graphical checklist used to set up the WebSphere MQ objects needed for Q replication. Setup scripts and a customized procedure for running the scripts are automatically generated for use at each MQ server.

SQL-based replication architecture maximizes flexibility in managing scheduling, transformation, and distribution topologies efficiently and effectively for populating warehouses or marts, maintaining data consistency between disparate applications, or efficiently managing distribution and consolidation scenarios among headquarters and branch or retail configurations.

  • The replication server supports distribution (moving data from one database to many) and consolidation (moving data from many databases to one) scenarios.
  • Data can be filtered either horizontally or vertically so that only the data you are interested in is replicated.
  • Transformation can be applied inline with the data movement via standard SQL expressions or stored procedure execution.
  • Data movement can be automated on a specific schedule, at designated intervals, continuously, or event driven.
  • Data movement can be managed table-at-a-time such as for warehouse loading during batch windows or with transaction consistency for data that is never offline.

SQL replication is widely used today. Because there is value in using the newer Q replication along with SQL replication, a trade-up is available from the SQL Replicating of DB2 feature of WebSphere Replication Server for z/OS, V9.1 to the SQL Replicating and Q Replicating of DB2 feature of WebSphere Replication Server for z/OS, V9.1.

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." 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.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone during normal business hours and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Support (IAAS). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the support services provided in the base support to include technical support via telephone during normal business hours.
  • Entitles customers to future releases and versions at no additional charge. Note that the customer is not entitled to new products.

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

Single-version charging: To elect single-version charging, the customer must notify and identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program and the machine the programs are operating on.

Customized Offerings

Product media is shipped only via Customized Offerings (for example, CBPDO, ServerPac, SystemPac®). Non-customized items (CDs, diskettes, source media, media kits) will continue to be shipped via the stand-alone product.

Terms and conditions

Licensing: IPLA and License Information document. Proofs of Entitlement (POEs) are required for all authorized use.

These products are licensed under the IPLA, and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provides for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours) as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.
S/390 and zSeries IBM Operational Support Services — SoftwareXcel is an option for those customers who want added services.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty:

This program includes a warranty for one year from acquisition from IBM or an authorized IBM Business Partner. For one year from acquisition of the program, this warranty provides the customer with access to databases containing program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or otherwise obtain and install.

Program support: Enhanced Support, called Subscription and Support, includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours) as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect. The customer will be notified of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund. For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by the customer.

Sub-capacity terms and conditions

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." 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

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the zSeries IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

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, visit

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.

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 IBM System z Machines 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 204-184

Additional information for products with reference-based terms: zSeries IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms add value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in 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

  • That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement letter 198-001, dated January 13, 1998
  • 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 IBM System z Workload Charges (Z125-6516)."
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — "Attachment for EWLC, TWLC, zELC, and z/OS.e 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 System z Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929)." 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.
