Description

Designed for application support, test, and development teams, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 helps you gain deep insight into the health of your production and pre-production environments by using key performance metrics that help pinpoint the source of bottlenecks or other defects in application code, server resource, and external systems and services.

Server-side J2EE applications are complex and often interact with tightly coupled data resources over various interfaces and application integration middleware. In order to fix hard-to-diagnose problems, it can be important to understand how the various components behave while functioning as a whole. IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for CICS Transactions V6.1, and IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for IMS Transactions V6.1 can help keep composite applications healthy by efficiently capturing and reporting both J2EE resource metrics as well as most discreet, instance-level events down to the method level. This can help subject matter experts rapidly identify and fix a wide range of performance problems.

V6.1 of IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere contains many new capabilities that help you sort and diagnose problems within the evolving context of WebSphere. No longer only a J2EE implementation, WebSphere forms the basis for an array of platforms and programming models to help support services and process-based system oriented architecture (SOA) applications, commerce suites, messaging infrastructures, and display tiers such as portals and collaboration environments. IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 includes deep diagnostics and monitoring support for these server types.

Key new functions in V6.1

Enhanced problem determination

Powerful problem analysis capabilities have been added, including:

  • An automated problem finder to help evaluate common performance bottlenecks and contributing factors, which can help with easier detection, categorization, and analysis of root causes
  • Integration with memory dump diagnostics for Java (MDD4J) that can provide deep insight into the health, structure, and contents of Java virtual machine (JVM) heap and to help identify sources of memory leaks
  • First failure data capture (FFDC) that significantly helps improve Java exception handling
  • Dynamic method trace capture (based on traps) can allow deep triage without switching to level three monitoring

Advanced visualization, aggregation, persistence, and correlation of performance metrics in Tivoli Enterprise Console®: A single user interface displays performance and a comprehensive set of metrics and trends from WebSphere and other monitored systems, such as messaging middleware, networks, and databases, in the Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP). Numerous new workspaces have been added, and summarization and pruning are now supported for Tivoli Data Warehouse integration.

WebSphere server support: Provides and helps monitor new metrics for programming models implemented in WebSphere servers, such as WebSphere Process Server, WebSphere Portal, and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus.

Enhanced Lotus portal support: IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 enhances WebSphere Portal Server monitoring by including new TEP workspaces, support for cache performance, Java Specification Requests (JSR) 168 standards support, and other enhanced drill-down capabilities.

Native instance-level data handling and presentation: Helps capture request-level performance data for top-level servlet invocations with very low overhead and, depending on monitoring scope, nested events within the call tree within each monitored servlet.

Dynamic monitoring scope: Dynamically switches, by pre-set schedule or on-the-fly, between three monitoring levels based on the need for varying levels of information required by the user. This feature is designed to allow switching without application server or JVM restart.

IT problem alerting: Helps manage alerts that originate within specific application processing delays and resource threshold exceeded conditions. This enables dynamic thresholding and the ability for operations to apply logical expressions to any metric pattern to help in initial diagnosis.

Composite transaction tracing and decomposition: This follows transactions from WebSphere all the way through a back-end transactional subsystem, such as CICS or IMS. Correlation functions are supported for Web services and remote Enterprise Java Bean (EJB) invocation over Remote Method Invocation/Internet Inter-Orb Protocol (RMI/IIOP).

Memory analysis and diagnostics: Provides tools and views that help detect and diagnose common Java application memory problems, such as leaks and improper allocation of data objects.

Reporting and performance analysis: Provides out-of-box reporting to help users analyze historical performance trends, resource consumption patterns, and decompose application behavior to help detect problem causes.

Web session browser: Helps diagnose session-related problems resident in an application server. This helps users:

  • Gain a better understanding of the characteristics of their sessions, such as session size, age, and contents
  • Identify and solve common performance issues related to HTTP sessions that consume excess memory or are not properly released, which can result in performance degradation and over-utilization of JVM heap

Portal-based user interface for management and correlation

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 bundles IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 infrastructure components that enable it to supply the Tivoli Enterprise Portal with key business performance metrics for enhanced visualization and correlation within new workspaces, as well as with other IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 monitored systems, such as WebSphere MQ, operating systems, databases, and other application environments like Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). Specifically, the IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 solution package includes:

  • IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 foundation release
  • TEP
  • Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Agent (TEMA)
  • IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 management server

Note: Licensees of IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 will receive a limited use, no-charge license of IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 bundled with IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 for distributed environments. IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services on z/OS® V6.1 is available for host environments and must be separately ordered by specifying program number 5698-A79. These limited use licenses are available, at no charge, subject to use restrictions. You are not authorized to access or use in any manner certain components that are contained in these solution packages, including the monitoring agents (such as the operating system agents for Microsoft™ Windows™, UNIX®, UNIX Log, and i5/OS™) and the IBM Tivoli Universal Agent, unless you have paid for a license of IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 and, if applicable, IBM Tivoli Monitoring Universal Agent. Refer to the License Information document for terms applicable to these programs.

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 includes collection agents that directly provision the IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 infrastructure by supplying performance data to the managing server, which can then be visualized in the TEP. This allows operations and support teams to create "workspaces" within the portal to visually manage and correlate critical metrics derived from managed J2EE servers, as well as any other systems monitored by IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON® technologies. By monitoring trends from resources like connection pools and JVM memory functions, users can track the health of servers and automate event management by creating "situations" within the portal that provide alerts or autonomic "take actions" to keep systems running smoothly and adhering to service level objectives.

Some of the key TEP workspaces include:

  • Application server summary
  • Application summary
  • Application health trend
  • Application server health
  • Memory analysis
  • Response analysis (trends for request types such as Enterprise Java Beans (EJB), Java database connectivity (JDBC), and so on)
  • Resource analysis
  • JDBC query analysis

These workspaces help operations and administrations staff avoid the inefficient task of wading through simplistic RED LIGHT/GREEN LIGHT indicators on a server-by-server basis to begin a problem diagnosis process. Such approaches do not scale when monitoring large numbers of systems common to most data centers, such as distributed clusters connected to mainframes and other systems. IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 helps solve this problem by providing an intelligent interface that presents the appropriate information needed, by application support teams and developers, to quickly diagnose the root cause of performance issues and fix or enable a workaround for a problem.

Value Unit-based pricing for the host product

Value Unit pricing for eligible System z™ IPLA programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each System z 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 System z 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 System z IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as "entitled license capacity." If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a System z IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each System z 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.

Product positioning

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager V6.1 fits within the IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager portfolio as the deep-dive, analytics-focused solution designed for analysis of application server and middleware, with the capability to help trace the flows of application logic to CICS and IMS outside of the J2EE containers. As a vertically oriented solution with emphasis on WebSphere, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 compliments the functions of other composite managers, such as IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for SOA, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Response Time Tracking, and IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for Messaging, to provide comprehensive coverage for transaction decomposition, response time tracking, Web service management, WebSphere MQ automation and monitoring, and service level assurance — all within a top-level user interface.

Relative to other products in its category, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 can quickly help isolate and identify common problems without requiring you to instrument your applications in order to monitor them. It delivers best-in-class deep diagnostics that can help you shorten the amount of time and effort required to fix complex application problems. While competitive products aim to achieve similar objectives, they do not achieve the power of IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 and often are limited in the scope of analysis that they provide because they typically only have visibility into performance within the JVM itself.

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 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 System p 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 IBM 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. 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 customers licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does not differentiate between non-System z server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to System z and other host servers as well.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions

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 System z or OS/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IFL will 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 that run on the IFL.

The IFL may be dedicated to a single Linux-mode logical partition or it may be shared by multiple Linux-mode logical partitions. Installations should note that the Linux workspace enabled by this facility will not support any of the S/390 traditional operating systems (OS/390, TPF, VSE, or VM). Only Linux applications or Linux operating in conjunction with the Virtual Image Facility™, an environment that operates within a logical partition or in native S/390 mode and provides the capability to create multiple Linux images, is supported by 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 System z software runs. Processor MSU values are determined by the hardware vendor, IBM, or Software Compatible Vendors (SCVs).

For more detailed information about System z software pricing, go to

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 (per processor charging under full capacity)

In full capacity charging, proof of entitlements 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. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore 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 IBM System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  4. Threading, a technique that 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.
  7. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage® Web site

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. The managed processors which require proofs of entitlement (PoE) are defined in the Prices section of the announcement or in 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. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore 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 for the program's valuation method.
  4. In the IBM System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  5. Threading, a technique that 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.
  7. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more users and/or client devices over a network. A PoE must be obtained for each server on which the program, or a component of the program, is run or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

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 entitlement sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if 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 entitlement 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 pricing charge metric for program license entitlements that is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurements are processor cores and MSUs. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for your specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. You must obtain a PoE for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program. Whenever the designated measurement is a processor core, not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Passport Advantage for the distributed product

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 charge units for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determine 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.

For additional information on Passport Advantage, refer to the following Web site

The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:

  • License and Software Maintenance 12 Months — this is the product authorization with maintenance to the first anniversary date.
  • Annual Software Maintenance Renewal — this is the maintenance renewal for one anniversary that applies when a customer renews their existing coverage period prior to the anniversary date at which it expires.
  • Software Maintenance Reinstatement 12 months — this is for customers who have allowed their Software Maintenance to expire, and later wish to reinstate their Software Maintenance.
  • Media packs — these are the physical media, such as CD-ROMs, that deliver the product's code.
  • Documentation packs — these contain printed documentation such as the User's Guide and Release Notes.

Pricing examples

The following examples are provided to illustrate the customer's licensing requirements.

Pricing example for IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere V6.1 — host platform

The host product is licensed in VUE007.

The scales below are used to calculate the equivalent number of Value Units for a specified number of MSUs.

In the example below, the customer is managing 1,500 MSUs:

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 rounded up to the next integer. So the customer will need to license 344 Value Units in this example.

Value Units for non MSU-based S/390 processors:

System                Value Units/System
 
MP3000 H30                      6

Sub-capacity terms and conditions for System z host products

For each System z 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 System z 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 System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

Program
number    Program name               Terms
 
5698-A71  IBM Tivoli Composite       Execution-based
           Application Manager for
           WebSphere
5698-A69  IBM Tivoli Composite       Execution-based
           Application Manager for
           CICS Transactions
5698-A70  IBM Tivoli Composite       Execution-based
           Application Manager for
           IMS Transactions

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 System z IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, see 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 System z 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 System z IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the System z IPLA program executes.

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

Reference-Based: The required license capacity of a System z 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 System z IPLA program with full machine-based terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machine(s) where the System z IPLA program executes.

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

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

Additional information for products with Reference-Based terms

System z IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in the environment the System z 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 System z IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment, the required license capacity of the System z IPLA program must be 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 System z 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 System z (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 System z 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 System z IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-capacity utilization determination for host products

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the product's own execution as reported to IBM in accordance with the requirements for reporting sub-capacity utilization for products.

On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD)

To be eligible for 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.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available on the IBM eServer platform. These services provide the opportunity for greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate, but complementary, elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
