Planning Information

MQSeries Pricing

The price model is structured over Processor Group tiers. In general, the tiers are linked to the number of processors per machine or node on which MQSeries programs run, as shown in the list GC34-5265. The tiers relate to a required number of capacity units. Additional capacity units are required as you move to larger systems, or add new systems.

The charge for MQSeries client access, where applicable, is included within the capacity unit charge.

MQSeries for AS/400 Processor Group List for Capacity Units

.----------------------------------+-------------------.
| Machine                          | Use Requirement   |
|                                  |                   |
|----------------------------------+-------------------|
| Processor Group P05              | 2 x Capacity Units|
|----------------------------------+-------------------|
| Processor Group P10              | 3 x Capacity Units|
|----------------------------------+-------------------|
| Processor Group P20              | 4 x Capacity Units|
|----------------------------------+-------------------|
| Processor Group P30              | 6 x Capacity Units|
|----------------------------------+-------------------|
| Processor Group P40              | 8 x Capacity Units|
|----------------------------------+-------------------|
| Processor Group P50              |10 x Capacity Units|
'----------------------------------+-------------------'

This list is available as an IBM document (GC34-5265), it is included in the Product Brief and is shipped with program packages. A calculation tool can aid in assessing the required authorization for a particular customer environment. Access the tool via:

http://www.ibm.com/software/ts/mqseries/v5/calculator/

Price Structure: The required number of Capacity Unit Resource Use Authorizations are defined by processor group.

Minimum entitlement to use MQSeries on an AS/400 P05 processor machine is included in the licensed program packaging. Additional capacity units must be acquired separately for MQSeries use on larger or multiple machines . For MQSeries for AS/400, the required capacity unit ranges from two for each entry machine through to 10 for P50 machine. Refer to the Processor Group List above.

Transferability: MQSeries generic capacity units are intended to be transferable across MQSeries platforms that appear in the same MQSeries Transfer Group. The MQSeries Transfer Group will generally, but not exclusively, define MQSeries products at a consistent version and release level.

The capacity units are not transferable between products in different MQSeries Transfer Groups. In general, a charge will be associated with migrating existing Use-Authorization (capacity units) to an MQSeries product at a functionally enhanced version or release level. Options within Passport Advantage allow such migrations for no-charge.

The following groups show the current MQSeries Transfer Groups and the platforms, within group, eligible for generic capacity unit transferability. The version.release levels shown represent MQSeries levels.
