Overview

New part numbers are available for IBM System z™ customers who would like to use the distributed version of WebSphere® Business Monitor to monitor events generated from IBM WebSphere Process Server for z/OS® and IBM WebSphere Process Server for Linux™ on System z, or to monitor custom events from the System z environment. This set of part numbers provides the identical supply and authorization as the part numbers previously announced for WebSphere Business Monitor V6.0.2.

IBM WebSphere Business Monitor lets you monitor business events in real-time by providing key users with a visual display of business process status together with alerts and notifications. WebSphere Business Monitor is tightly integrated with both WebSphere Business Modeler and WebSphere Process Server.

WebSphere Business Monitor V6.0.2.1 offers:

  • Enhanced Business Activity Monitoring (BAM): Users have the ability to monitor events beyond WebSphere Process Server. By creating an event emitter, any application that is identified as business critical can now be monitored.
  • Improved dashboards: The monitor dashboard supports updates to and personalization of key performance indicators (KPI) thresholds.
  • WebSphere Business Monitor Development Toolkit: A graphical editor, which allows users to develop and test a monitoring model within the WebSphere Integration Developer environment. Included is one restricted use license of WebSphere Integration Developer. If you require additional development environments for WebSphere Business Monitor, then you will need to purchase new or use existing licenses of the WebSphere Integration Developer.
  • Business monitor programming model: A monitoring model can be expressed in XML format.
  • Improved administration: Users have a step-by-step guide for deploying a monitoring model.
  • Improved versioning support: Users have better control of change management of a monitoring model.
  • WebSphere network deployment: Users can install WebSphere Business Monitor in a WebSphere network deployment topology enabling high availability of monitoring models.
  • Improved installation: The installation process is simplified and reduces the complexity, size, and duration of the installation.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements, which 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 measurement is a processor core. 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 Proof of Entitlement (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.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor (commonly called a CPU or core) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and/or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. 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

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processors on the server available to the program or a component of the program.

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.
