    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 a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

    Processor (Value Unit)

    A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the value unit table on the following Web site

     http://www.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/
    wdocs/pvu_licensing_for_customers
     
    

    With full capacity licensing, a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

    Sub-capacity processor (Value Unit)

    For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. Refer to the "International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for sub-capacity terms" or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms.

    20 Authorized User

    Authorized User: An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside Your enterprise. A proof of entitlement (POE) must be obtained for each individual user accessing the Program in any manner. A Program licensed under an authorized user POE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a POE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the Program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

    A "Proof of Entitlement" ("PoE") is required for each 20 users accessing the Program or any Program component either directly or indirectly through any means on behalf of the Users. An example of "indirect" access would be through a multiplexing program, device, or application server.

    The Program can be accessed by multiple Users provided that a User authorization has been obtained for each 20 Users.

    1. Access to the Program is restricted to Users recorded in the registry.

    2. Users have a unique specific identity and ID's cannot be shared.

    3. When multiple, unique registries exist, the registries will be additive for charging purposes even if a specific ID exists in both registries.

    4. An ID can establish one or more connections and count as a single User.

    Sub-capacity for selected middleware products

    Sub-capacity licensing on a per processor or per Value Unit basis is available for selected middleware products. To offer sub-capacity licensing, IBM software products implement IBM Tivoli License Compliance Manager within their offerings so that you can monitor and report quarterly to IBM on the use of the programs on a continuous basis.

    More information can be found on the Passport Advantage web site:

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

    ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS for sub-capacity licensing

    To be eligible for sub-capacity licensing terms on this product, you must agree to install and configure IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software, in accordance with the IBM Tivoli License Manager publications, and to enable the collection of program use data on all eligible machines subject to sub-capacity terms.

    For those machines running programs with sub-capacity licensing terms, you must use IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software to monitor program use and submit to IBM an IBM Use Report each calendar quarter. Multiple copies of IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software or IBM Tivoli License Manager are not required. You can use more copies if you need them to support your operational environment, but only one copy is required to monitor all your sub-capacity licensed products.

    Additionally, if this is the first product you have licensed under sub-capacity terms, you must agree to the terms of an attachment to your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express contract and submit a new Passport Advantage enrollment form. First-time sub-capacity clients also have an opportunity to ensure a Primary Business Contact is established for their contracts.

    For more information on required and entitled license capacity, license requirements and reporting refer to Marketing Announcement letter ZA05-0101 dated April 19, 2005.

    If you order (this product) under sub-capacity terms, IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software will be made available to you if you do not already have one. You must install and configure this tool for your sub-capacity products. Alternately, you can use Tivoli License Manager. Once the license manager software is installed, you will be required to register online (IBM may need to contact you in order to finalize the registration process). You must monitor program use on a continuous basis with an IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software and submit IBM Use Reports to IBM on a calendar quarterly basis.

    IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software is documented in the following customer publications, which are available from IBM Publications Center at

    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.
