Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS V12.1

Debug Tool for z/OS V12.1

Fault Analyzer for z/OS V12.1

File Manager for z/OS V12.1

Workload Simulator Plug-in for Eclipse

An initial Workload Simulator plug-in is available. This plug-in, when used with an Eclipse-based platform such as CICS Explorer, helps provide easier access through a GUI on the workstation to the host Workload Simulator for z/OS product. The GUI provides the ability to manage the test process and automatically generate Workload Simulator scripts and networks from VTAM® and CPI-C trace data.

IBM Explorer for z/OS

IBM CICS Explorer for z/OS V1.1.1 is restructured to separate the CICS-specific perspectives and capabilities from the connectivity infrastructure and z/OS platform views to create a new, reusable component known as IBM Explorer for z/OS V1.1 (z/OS Explorer).

The Problem Determination Tools V12 plug-ins use the z/OS Explorer component. The z/OS Explorer component is seamlessly integrated with CICS Explorer, providing full compatibility for existing CICS Transaction Server (CICS TS) and CICS Tools perspectives, and enhanced usability by the Problem Determination Tools. z/OS Explorer is also embedded in IMS Enterprise Suite Explorer for Development V2.1.2, helping to give users of the Problem Determination Tools plug-ins a consistent user experience.

z/OS Explorer includes these functions:

In addition to the new generic capabilities introduced with the z/OS Explorer, CICS Explorer V1.1.1 includes the following enhancements:

(*) IBM authorizes customers to use IBM Specialty Engines (SEs) only to execute the processing of Eligible Workloads of specific Programs expressly authorized by IBM as specified in the "Authorized Use Table for IBM Machines" provided at

http://www.ibm.com/systems/support/machine_warranties/machine_code/aut.html
("AUT")

No other workload processing is authorized for execution on a SE. IBM offers SEs at lower price than full authorization General Processors/Central Processors because customers are authorized to use SEs only to process certain types and/or amounts of workloads as specified by IBM in the AUT.

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of its general availability, when used in accordance with IBM 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 IBM System z IBM International Program License Agreement (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 you. 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 offer additional price benefits. 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:

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 website

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice/vuctool

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 System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

Product positioning
Bottom rule

Problem Determination Tools include Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS, Debug Tool for z/OS, Fault Analyzer for z/OS, File Manager for z/OS, and Workload Simulator. These tools help ease the burden of managing complex IT environments. By helping to improve application delivery throughout the application life cycle, IBM Problem Determination Tools deliver increased user productivity and IT effectiveness across source code debugging, application-abend analysis, data management, and application-performance management.

Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS helps programmers and systems personnel to identify constraints and to improve the performance of their applications. It is a nonintrusive performance analyzer that helps you with the design, development, and maintenance cycles. Its key function is to measure and report how resources are used by applications running in virtually any IBM z/OS address space.

Debug Tool for z/OS is the IBM interactive source-level debugging tool for compiled applications. It is a program testing and analysis aid that helps you examine, monitor, and control the execution of application programs written in C, C++, COBOL, PL/I, or Assembler on a z/OS system. It provides debugging capability for applications running in a variety of environments, such as batch, TSO, CICS, IMS, DB2, DB2 Stored Procedures, and UNIX System Services. Debug Tool also includes features to help you identify old OS/VS and VS COBOL II source code and to upgrade the code to Enterprise COBOL.

Fault Analyzer for z/OS assists in analyzing and fixing application and system failures. It offers the information required to help determine the cause of failure and provides assistance in how to resolve the problem. Integrated support for Java and WebSphere Application Server for z/OS gives Fault Analyzer expanded application coverage and related business value beyond traditional applications. You can use one tool to assist in composite application-abend analysis.

File Manager for z/OS offers comprehensive, user-friendly tools for working with z/OS data sets, or DB2, or IMS data. You can also access CICS resources under control of a CICS transaction. Create, browse, copy, edit, print, and format or reformat data files in the most popular z/OS file formats. Manipulate data using COBOL and PL/I record layouts interactively or in batch.

Workload Simulator for z/OS and OS/390® lets you simulate terminals and the associated messages. You can alter message loads during a run. Workload Simulator can be used to generate large volumes of messages to evaluate the reliability and to approximate performance characteristics of a network under expected operating conditions.

These problem determination tools not only support traditional applications, but include tight integration amongst the problem determination tools themselves and other related tool sets, and an ongoing emphasis on supporting and exploiting the latest subsystem levels. These capabilities, in addition to the problem determination tools ongoing commitment to deliver additional customer-requested functions, make the problem determination tools a set of products which are second to none.

VUE001 Ordering example

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

If your required license capacity is 1,000 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
          MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU = Value Units
Base          3   *  5.25            =   15.75
Tier A       42   *   .83            =   34.86
Tier B      130   *   .35            =   45.50
Tier C      140   *   .26            =   36.40
Tier D      685   *   .20            =  137.00
-----------------------------------------------------
Total     1,000                         269.51

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

          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 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 Software Maintenance. This offering:

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

The combined effect of the IPLA license and the Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance gives you rights and support services comparable to those under the traditional ICA S/390® and System z license or its equivalent. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the level of support you are used to in the ICA business model, you must order both the license for the program and the support for the selected programs at the same Value Unit quantities.

Single version charging

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

Customized Offerings

Product deliverables are shipped only via CBPDO, ServerPac, SystemPac®.

CBPDO and ServerPac are offered for Internet delivery in countries where ShopzSeries product ordering is available. Internet delivery reduces software delivery time and allows you to install software without the need to handle tapes. For more details on Internet delivery, refer to the ShopzSeries help information at

http://www.software.ibm.com/ShopzSeries

You choose the delivery method when you order the software. IBM recommends Internet delivery. In addition to Internet and DVD, the supported tape delivery options for CBPDO, ServerPac, and SystemPac, include:

Most products can be ordered in ServerPac and SystemPac the month following their availability on CBPDO. z/OS can be ordered via all three offerings at general availability. Production of software product orders will begin on the planned general availability date.

Sub-capacity terms and conditions

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:

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the System z 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 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, visit

http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

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 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 machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The IBM System z Machines Exhibit, Z125-3901.

Or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits website

http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

For 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 or stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. You may have one or more different environments across the 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 equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

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:

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 website

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

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

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract - Amendment for IBM System z9® and System z Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929).

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

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 (CoD)

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, you must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract, Attachment for IBM System z On/Off Capacity on Demand (Z125-7883) must be signed prior to use.

Top rule
Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
