Licensing metric definitions

Client Device

Client Device is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Client Device is a single user computing device or special purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Client Device which runs, provides data to, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every other computer or server on which the program is installed.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology defined within the PVU Table by processor vendor, brand, type, and model number at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html
and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip (socket). A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the webpage below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_sp ecific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Terabyte

Terabyte is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each terabyte of storage available to the program.

IBM System Storage Archive Manager terabyte capacity

IBM System Storage Archive Manager terabyte capacity includes primary disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized primary removable media storage used by the IBM System Storage Archive Manager server.

Capacity does not include:

  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on disk.
  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on removable media.
  • Space used on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server for any purpose other than the primary storage of space-managed data.
  • Disk on the host being space managed.

A virtual tape library (VTL) is considered a removable media device, so capacity is based on utilization.

The minimum amount of capacity that can be purchased is 1 terabyte.

Partial capacity will be rounded up to the next whole number of terabytes.

Additional capacity must be added in increments of 1 terabyte.

Tiered terabytes (1-12), (13-32), (33-64), (65-100), (101-250), (251+)

Terabyte (1-12), terabyte (13-32), terabyte (33-64), terabyte (65-100), terabyte (101-250), and terabyte (251+) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) are based on the number of terabytes available to the program. A terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for licensee's environment. The entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with entitlements of another program.

Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain terabyte entitlements for the program sufficient to cover the storage managed by the program.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery terabyte capacity

Tiered terabytes (1-100), (101-250), (251-500), (501-750), (751-1,250), (1,251-2,000), (2001+)

Terabyte (1-100), terabyte (101-250), terabyte (251-500), terabyte (501-750), terabyte (751-1,250), terabyte (1,251-2,000), terabyte (2,001+) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. PoEs are based on the number of terabytes available to the program. A terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for licensee's environment. The entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with entitlements of another program.

Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain terabyte entitlements for the program sufficient to cover the storage managed by the program.

For Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery, licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for all data stored in the designated Tivoli Storage Manager primary storage pool volumes and for all data stored in the designated Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack repository volumes and for all data managed by the Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery - Front End terabyte capacity

Tiered terabytes (1-100), (101-250), (251-500), (501-750), (751-1,250), (1,251-2,000), (2001+)

Terabyte (1-100), terabyte (101-250), terabyte (251-500), terabyte (501-750), terabyte (751-1,250), terabyte (1,251-2,000), terabyte (2,001+) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. PoEs are based on the number of Terabytes available to the program. A terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for licensee's environment. The entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with entitlements of another program.

Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain terabyte entitlements for the program sufficient to cover the data managed by the program. For Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery Front End, licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for the aggregate amount of data protected by the program.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery - Archive Option terabyte capacity

Entitlements for the new Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery - Archive Option component apply only to data classified as archive data within Tivoli Storage Manager that results from running an archive operation, and the data must reside on tape or VTL within the primary storage pool. An archive operation is designated either via the Tivoli Storage Manager's user interface itself or through Tivoli Storage Manager's application programming interface (API). Data stored on virtual tape appears to Tivoli Storage Manager as physical tape. The Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery - Archive Option price applies to the capacity level recognized by Tivoli Storage Manager (which equates to the amount of data sent to the virtual tape). Subsequent deduplication of data within a VTL does not reduce the capacity level recognized by Tivoli Storage Manager.

Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for all data stored in the designated IBM Tivoli Storage Manager primary storage pool volumes and for all data stored in the designated IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Fastback repository volumes and for all data managed by the IBM Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery - ProtecTIER® Option terabyte capacity

Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the total aggregate usable physical capacity of all the IBM ProtecTIER repositories that are available to the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager primary storage pool, excluding the capacity for Disaster Recovery sites used for replication only.

Managed Server

Managed Server is a unit of measure. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. Licensee must obtain Managed Server entitlements for each server managed.

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm, and hot. In 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 other license or entitlements 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 entitlements 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), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

High Availability and Disaster Recovery (HADR)

To use HADR to replicate from one Tivoli Storage Manager server (with DB2 included) to another Tivoli Storage Manager server (with DB2 included), no additional DB2 licensing is required.

To use HADR to replicate from a Tivoli Storage Manager server (with bundled DB2) to a nonbundled DB2 instance, the licensee must purchase 100 Processor Value Units (PVUs) to obtain a license for DB2 Enterprise Edition (bundled).

Pricing examples

Pricing examples for Tivoli Storage Manager

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

References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit based. Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of Value Units required per processor will depend on the processor type.

Notes:

  • When using Processor Value Unit based licensing, license entitlements for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are required for all managed servers including the managing server. Licensing entitlement is Processor Value Unit based and both full capacity and sub-capacity licensing is offered.
  • A PoE for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is required to use any of the following function: node replication (and the use of REPLICATE NODE command as a target server), disaster recovery manager, Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP), support of tape libraries (including virtual tape libraries) with more than 4 drives or more than 48 slots.
  • An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition server can only be used to manage IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition components or clients.
  • A Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition server can act as a target server for disaster recovery purposes, with the exception of node replication, for Tivoli Storage Manager servers.
  • The use of node replication (REPLICATE NODE command) requires the same end-user entitlements for both the server that sends the data (source server) and the server that receives the data (target server).
  • Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition licensing requirements for General Parallel File System (GPFS) and IBM SONAS require Tivoli Storage Manager license entitlements for each node performing data movement.
  • Entitlement conversions to Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery require entitlement of Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition. If there is entitlement of Tivoli Storage Manager, then a trade up to Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is required as a precondition to the entitlement conversion.
  • All Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices that are being backed up require entitlement for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition. If NDMP is used, then entitlement for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is required. If a proxy server or data mover is being used, then that server does not require additional entitlement.
  • An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks entitlement is required for each IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server that is sharing a library where an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager acts as the library manager. An entitlement is required for each library client and library manager. An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks license entitlement is required for each system that performs LAN-free operations.

    Go to the Reference information section for more information about IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks.

  • Client Device entitlements for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are interchangeable.

Note: This example is valid for any mail application supported by IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is required for each system with a mail server managed by IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail.

Scenario 2: VMware environment with VMware vStorage APIs for Data Protection

The customer environment consists of the following:

  • ESX server 1 with four virtual servers, three running as file servers, and the fourth running as a Microsoft SQL Server.
  • ESX server 2 with four virtual servers, three running as file servers, and the fourth running as a Microsoft Exchange server.
  • Both ESX servers are backed up using the vStorage APIs from a proxy server.
  • Each virtual machine is assigned one processor core.
  • The customer is backing up only the file servers.

Notes:

  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition full capacity entitlement requires that all physical system cores on VMware ESX servers, being backed up by the proxy server, are to be entitled.
  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition sub-capacity entitlement requires that the virtual cores, assigned to virtual machines on VMware ESX servers being backed up by the proxy server, are to be entitled.
  • VMware vStorage API for Data Protection proxy server does not require entitlement for Tivoli Storage Manager, Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition, or Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments.

Full capacity requirement

Quantity of processor core entitlements required ESX 1 (4 way) ESX 2 (4 way) Proxy server (4 way) Total
TSM or TSM Extended Edition 4 4 0 8

Sub-capacity requirement

Quantity of processor core entitlements required ESX 1 (4 way) ESX 2 (4 way) Proxy server (4 way) Total
TSM or TSM Extended Edition 3 3 0 6

Note: Only the virtual machines running as file servers require entitlement. Since these are the only machines being backed up, the customer does not back up the fourth virtual machine.

Scenario 3: VMware environment with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition backup agent installed inside a virtual machine and the customer is backing up Oracle and Microsoft Exchange.

The customer environment consists of the following:

  • ESX server 1 with four virtual servers, three running as file servers, and the fourth running as an Oracle server.
  • ESX server 2 with four virtual servers, three running as file servers, and the fourth running as a Microsoft Exchange server.
  • Each virtual machine is assigned one processor core.

Notes:

  • The full capacity IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition entitlement requirement is based on physical system cores and not virtual cores.
  • The sub-capacity IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition entitlement requirement is based on virtual cores.

Full capacity requirements

Quantity of processor core entitlements required ESX 1 (4 way) ESX 2 (4 way) Total
TSM or TSM Extended Edition 4 4 8
TSM for Databases 4 0 4
TSM for Mail 0 4 4

Note: If VMware VMotion is running across all ESX servers, enabling migration of virtual machines between the two ESX servers, then the ESX cluster is treated as the server at full capacity, which requires all cores on all ESX servers to be entitled. If VMotion is running in the above scenario, then IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases, and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail will each require eight cores to be entitled.

Sub-capacity requirements

Quantity of processor core entitlements required ESX 1 (4 way) ESX 2 (4 way) Total
TSM or TSM Extended Edition 4 4 8
TSM for Databases 1 0 1
TSM for Mail 0 1 1

Note: If VMware VMotion is running across all ESX servers, enabling migration of virtual machines between the two ESX servers, entitlement requirements would not change from the above required entitlements.

Scenario 4: VMware environment with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition backup agent running inside a virtual machine

The customer environment consists of the following:

  • ESX server 1 with four virtual servers, three running as file servers, and the fourth running as an Oracle server.

Notes:

  • The full capacity IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition entitlement requirement is based on physical system cores and not virtual cores.
  • The sub-capacity IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition entitlement requirement is based on virtual cores.

Entitlement for Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows is based on the TB capacity being space managed (migrated). Capacity is defined as the primary HSM disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized HSM removable media storage pool. Storage pools are configured on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server. The minimum amount of capacity that can be purchased is 1 TB. Partial capacity will be rounded up to the next whole number of TB. Additional capacity must be added in multiples of 1 TB. Capacity does not include:

  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on disk
  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on removable media

Scenario 1

A customer wants to space manage 4.25 TB of files from six Microsoft Windows file servers. This means 4.25 TB of files will be migrated from their current location to the Tivoli Storage Manager server's primary HSM storage pools. The migrated files will be replaced with references to the original file. The data in the primary HSM storage pools will be copied for off-site protection to a copy pool. The customer has designated 0.25 TB of disk for an HSM disk storage pool, 4 TB for a HSM removable media storage pool, and 6 TB of removable media for a copy storage pool.

The customer needs to purchase 5 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows.

0.25 TB 4 TB 4.25 TB 5 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows

Scenario 2 (additional capacity)

A customer had purchased 5 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows. Over the last 12 months, the customer consumed the 5 TB of HSM capacity they purchased initially in addition to an additional 1 TB. Over the next 12 months, they expect the amount of space managed data will grow to 9 TB total. They will continue to keep the 0.25 TB for the HSM disk storage pool and thus store the remaining 8.75 TB in the removable media storage pool.

The customer should purchase an additional 4 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows.

Pricing examples for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments

Protecting VMware environments using Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments

The customer environment consists of the following:

  • vSphere (host) 1 with 12 virtual machines (guests).
  • vSphere (host) 2 with 19 virtual machines (guests).
  • All of the guests on both vSphere servers (hosts) are protected using Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments V6.2.

Notes:

  • Either IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are prerequisite products for Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments and require entitlement on all physical system cores on the vSphere hosts. This entitlement applies only to the vSphere hosts protected by Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments.
  • Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments is physically installed on a centralized vStorage backup server, which is a secondary or proxy machine that is used to perform the backup using the vStorage application programming interface (API). This secondary or proxy machine can be either a physical machine or a virtual machine. A single vStorage backup server can be used to protect one or more virtual machines that reside on one or more vSphere servers. The customer can use one or more vStorage backup servers.
  • Entitlements for Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments, Tivoli Storage Manager, and Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are not required on the vStorage backup server. Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environment, Tivoli Storage Manager, and Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition entitlements are only required for the managed environment, which is the processor cores on the vSphere hosts running the virtual machines being protected.
  • Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments can also be licensed under sub-capacity software licensing terms, if required. Processor Value Unit (PVU) sub-capacity licensing lets you license an eligible software product for less than the full capacity (or total number of processors) of your server or group of servers. It provides the licensing granularity needed to leverage various multicore chip and virtualization technologies. The sub-capacity software licensing terms are documented in the International Passport Advantage Agreement (IPAA) Attachment for Sub-capacity Licensing Terms (Sub-capacity Licensing Attachment).
  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments sub-capacity entitlement requires that the virtual cores, assigned to virtual machines on VMware ESX servers being backed up by the proxy server, are to be entitled.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip (socket). A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html
Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at
http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_sp ecific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.

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.

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent™ tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24x7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to securely transmit either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system.

For additional information, refer to IBM Electronic Service Agent

http://www.ibm.com/support/esa/

More accurate reporting: Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, you are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, you can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Support website at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with your IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, you are able to see search results that apply specifically to your systems.
