Accounting Feature Enhancements (5698-TDW)
Java GUI Console (Viewer) Enhancements
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 and Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 Accounting feature continue to provide the following:
Multiple Subsystem Performance Management
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 Base provides the essential framework for the host-based performance management functions of Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390. These functions reach across multiple platforms host-based and distributed. The Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 Base includes the log collector, administration dialog, and host reporting dialog, all of which interface with a standard DB2 database.
User-definable Log Collection
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 collects systems management data from the log data of various programs, preprocesses it, and stores it in its datastore. You can also supply your own parameters, such as performance objectives and department or workload definitions. The Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 log collector also enables you to perform the following functions:
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 stores systems management data in a standard DB2 data warehouse, enabling easy access to the data across multiple platforms. Specialized searches can be performed and user reports created using the reporting dialogs and structured query language (SQL) statements.
Comprehensive Administrative Control
The administration dialog gives you complete control over Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390. This dialog helps you perform several functions, including the following:
Customizable Reporting on the Host
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 enables you to create reports that meet your specific needs and support your specialized applications. The host reporting dialog enables you to work with reports and groups of reports using special features to display, customize, and print predefined reports.
Customizable Reporting on the Workstation
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 also enables access and interaction with the DB2 database via the Java GUI console (Viewer) from a workstation. You can easily and intuitively manage OS/390 reports from any Windows NT, 95, 98, 2000, AIX®, or Sun machine. There is no need to use 3270 emulators.
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 can be used to run and customize reports: for example, adding report libraries, creating and deleting reports, and creating and modifying SQL queries. It runs on a client workstation and connects to the OS/390 DB2 on the host. The data are dynamically retrieved from the host without having to be downloaded or saved locally on the workstation.
It is possible to navigate among report libraries and reports in the same way as you would using Windows File Manager. Moreover, it provides a complete set of fully customizable graphical and tabular presentation types, including plot, pie, area, stack, bar graphs, and a combination of line and bar graph. It enables you to easily create and modify queries along with the possibility to manage connections and display data in the same view from multiple DB2s on the host.
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 offers, therefore, three methods for generating reports:
Flexible Feature Set
In addition to the framework, Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 consists of additional features that provide application-orientated documentation, table definitions for collecting the required systems management data, and predefined reports for presenting data.
CICS Performance Feature
The CICS feature provides the following functions:
A CICS system produces abundant systems management data. Understanding and analyzing this data is vital to improving your CICS system. However, CICS does not present the data in a format that is easy to interpret or analyze.
The CICS Performance feature collects all the data you need and stores it in easy-to-read tables. Predefined reports also help you understand your CICS system performance. The reports allow you to view specific applications or transactions, or the CICS system as a whole. The CICS Performance feature consists of three, separately installable, components: monitoring, statistics, and transaction and unit-of-work. Each component is designed to report on a specific aspect of CICS performance. Because you install only the components you need, you can optimize the data collected and stored in the database.
The CICS monitoring component collects data from the CICS monitoring facility (CMF) and summarizes the data by transaction, user ID, and application. It consists of several sub-components*:
CICS Statistical Analysis
The CICS statistics component collects interval, end-of-day, requested, and unsolicited statistics for a CICS system. CICS statistics are available on a system and resource level.
CICS Transaction and Unit-of-work Analysis
This component provides information about a transaction as it migrates from one CICS region to another within a sysplex or processor complex. You can see which resources service the unit-of-work in each region, or view the composite transaction. Also, you can gain a critical system-wide view of transaction activity.
CICS Partitioning Feature
The CICS Partitioning feature enables users who have a multiple OS/390 environment to perform a parallel collection of data produced by CICS on different OS/390 systems. This parallel collection provides an improvement in the total collection time for large amounts of CICS data running on different OS/390 systems.
The CICS Partitioning feature uses partitioned DB2 tablespaces. The use of partitioned tablespaces enables you to update, in parallel, the same tables, provided that the data belongs to different partitions.
Each CICS Performance feature component includes the following reports designed to provide a clear indication of CICS performance:
IMS Performance Feature
The IMS Performance feature:
Efficient Data Utilization
IMS, an OS/390 subsystem, automatically writes comprehensive logs to enable extensive data recovery. The IMS Performance feature uses the IMS log to form a complete view of your transaction activity. This comprehensive picture is created without adding more overhead on IMS or affecting the way IMS works on your system. You can decide what type of data you want Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 to collect from the IMS records. In addition to simple full-function transaction analysis, the IMS Performance feature also supports:
Intelligent IMS Event Correlation
An event is an activity that is part of a transaction or an IMS system activity. Each IMS log record type represents an individual IMS event, and all these records together comprise a transaction. The IMS Performance feature matches and saves the records until the transaction is complete, and then creates the composite record. The composite record and environment record are used to update the Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 DB2 tables. Reports are then produced using information stored in the DB2 tables.
For the IMS Performance feature, environment information focuses on performance thresholds. This information is critical for successful management of key IMS applications.
Performance Data Collection and Analysis
The process the IMS Performance feature uses to gather IMS performance data and produce reports is a collect. During a standard collect, the feature uses the SLDS log produced by IMS as input. A log procedure processes selected records on the log and matches records written for various IMS events.
The collect component is composed of these subcomponents:
Subsystem and Program Performance Reporting
This report indicates the performance of the subsystem or program. The feature provides these types of reports:
Network Performance Feature
The Network Performance feature:
Automated SMF Record Collection and Interpretation
A typical network contains many different resources, and each resource plays a role in the performance of the network. To understand your system's performance, you need information about the configuration and performance of these individual resources and of the network as a whole.
The Network Performance feature automates system management facility (SMF) record interpretation and report generation from data organized by the Tivoli NetView® Session Monitor, Hardware Monitor, and Tivoli NetView Performance Monitor. The feature collects the necessary SMF records, extracts data from each record, and produces a variety of reports. The reports compare network performance with your defined performance objectives and provide critical information regarding the network and network resources.
Network Administration Dialog
The Network Performance feature provides a network administration dialog that allows you to retrieve and change information about network resources, connections between resources, resource hierarchy, and service level objectives.
The Network Performance feature consists of separately installable components, each designed to report on a specific aspect of network performance. Because you install only the components you need, you can minimize the amount of data collected and stored in the database. Each Network Performance feature component includes several reports that provide a clear indication of the performance of your network.
The Network Performance feature uses data from the SMF log SMF type 28, 37, and 39 records, and FTP records. The feature collects data only for the record types and subtypes required by the components you install.
Accounting Feature (5698-TDW)
The Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 Accounting feature provides the following functions.
IT Cost Control
The distribution of complex data processing costs is often confusing to users, who find it difficult to relate the billed costs to the services provided. The flexible pricing and billing options of the Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 Accounting feature provide your data processing center customers a better understanding of their IT costs, enabling them to manage their use of IT resources more efficiently.
The Accounting feature helps you run your data processing center as a cost center, with the focus on prices, revenue, cost, and profit. The Accounting feature enables you to account for the use of dedicated resources, including networks, host-based and distributed processing, and data storage. This allows you to communicate with management in non-technical, financial terms about the use and cost of information technology - improving efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing revenue generation.
Sources of Accounting Data
The Accounting feature can work with three types of computer-usage information:
Flexible Accounting Methods
The Accounting feature supports all the popular accounting methods. You can achieve standard rate charging by applying a fixed price to a unit of work. Differential pricing allows you to vary the rates charged for each resource by subsystem, shift, period, customer, or any other element available in the database, while CPU normalization enables you to price consistently across multiple machine types that vary in processor speed. By prorating, you can allocate the costs for shared resources to all who benefit from them, either on a standard percentage basis or dynamically based on data in any file.
Comprehensive Accounting for IT Services
Standard charging algorithms are provided for Batch, Started Tasks, TSO, CICS, IMS, DB2, DASD, DFSMS migrated data, DFSMS backup, VM, and network. All data collected by Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 is available to the Accounting feature. Virtually any source can be incorporated into your chargeback process by either using the debit facility, or by introducing it into the standard Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 collection processing.
Flexible Data Organization
Through the use of user-defined keys, you can easily organize the data to support your organization's unique reporting requirements. Standard invoice reports are provided and can be easily customized to suit your specific needs. Even organizations with multiple instances of Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 databases benefit from consolidated reporting. You can access, report, or analyze the data through standard ODBC interfaces using tools such as Microsoft Excel or Lotus® 123. In addition to supplied reports, you can use QMF or another report writer to generate your own reports, using the SQL statements supplied with the Accounting feature as a model. Since the data is summarized, you can keep as much or as little as you require to support your specific accounting needs. The Accounting feature provides you with the means to successfully manage the business aspects of data processing across the entire enterprise.
Unique Desktop Access to Accounting Data
Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 Accounting Workstation is an application that is highly recommended for use in conjunction with the Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 Accounting option. Unique to the industry, this Microsoft Windows-based application provides greater ease-of-use by enabling you to migrate chargeback data and functionality from the mainframe to the desktop. You can then perform financial analysis functions from your desktop, with access to IT accounting and chargeback data generated by Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390.
This application easily exchanges data with most conventional PC spreadsheet and database programs, including Microsoft Excel, Lotus, Microsoft Access, and Paradox. It enables the end user to export IT chargeback data into preferred desktop applications and deliver information to business units in an easy-to-read format.
The Accounting option includes the Accounting Workstation Application.
System Performance Feature
The System Performance feature consists of three separate components:
System Performance Feature
Comprehensive View of System Behavior
A complex system contains many different resources, to understand your system's performance, you as a whole, as well as multiple OS/390 systems. The System Performance feature gives you a complete picture of your individual systems and sysplexes. As a result, you can successfully perform system monitoring, tuning, and planning.
OS/390 and other systems software generate a tremendous amount of resource usage data. However, those same products do not provide an effective means for categorizing and storing this data. The System Performance feature effectively analyzes, edits, and archives essential configuration and performance information.
Comprehensive Data Collection and Management
The System Performance feature collects data recorded by many operating systems and subsystems. It also summarizes the data, presenting the information in various forms for systems management usage. The System Performance feature enables you to collect large volumes of data and store only the data you need. The feature collects data from System Management Facilities, Resource Management Facility, and Data Facility Storage Management Subsystem, among other programs.
Once the data is stored in the Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 database, you can create and display reports using information from various sources. You can also consolidate data, drawn from different sources, into a single report.
Optimized Data Collection
The System Performance feature consists of separately installable components, each designed to report a specific aspect of OS/390 system performance. Because you install only the components you need, you can optimize the amount of information collected and stored in a database. These components retrieve subsystem-generated data logged in the following corresponding data files:
The System Performance feature only collects data from the logs and record types required by the components you install.
Each component of the System Performance feature includes several reports designed to indicate the performance of a subsystem or program.
The feature provides the following types of reports:
AS/400 System Performance
The System Performance AS/400 component of the System Performance feature:
A complex system contains many different resources. To understand a system's performance, information about the configuration and performance of individual resources, as well as the system as a whole are needed. The AS/400 operating system and other systems software help manage system complexity by recording information on resource usage. This data contains essential configuration and performance information, and is spread across your AS/400 systems.
The AS/400 System Performance feature enables you to collect data from multiple AS/400 systems and store the information in the Tivoli Decision Support database on an OS/390 system. This feature formats the AS/400 log file data for Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390, and enables use of Tivoli NetView FTP, Network Job Entry, or tape. It sends the data to a central OS/390 host that is running Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390. Then reports can be created and displayed, consolidating data from many different sources.
Flexible Data Summarization
The AS/400 System Performance feature offers sample reports and table definitions for collecting required systems management data. In addition, using DB2 applications, you can access the summarized data and create customized reports.
The AS/400 System Performance feature offers five components, which can be used in any combination, to collect only the data needed by the installed components. Each component provides three types of reports to give a clear picture of AS/400 system performance.
Enterprise-wide Data Collection
The Distributed Option generates performance data on UNIX and Windows NT systems. The host part of the feature consolidates this data into Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 tables and produces reports to analyze and present this data on your host Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 system. You can also access this summarized data and other feature data from your own DB2 applications.
The UNIX and Windows NT data collection processes can run automatically according to a schedule. This schedule can include the automatic transmission of data to an OS/390 system. The processes can also be automatically started when a system is restarted an important consideration when you have many systems in the network.
The Distributed System feature collects only data needed by the components that you install. You can choose from any combination of these components:
Distributed Monitoring Component
The Distributed Monitoring Component displays reports on data that is retrieved from Tivoli Distributed Monitoring. The data is gathered by each Tivoli Distributed Monitoring agent, stored in a log file, and sent via FTP to Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390, which in turn processes the data. The reports can display data that is retrieved from all supported UNIX platforms and from Windows NT.
Application Response Measurement (ARM) Component
ARM stores ARM data into a log file (flat file) on its location, writing a record at user-specified intervals. As needed, the log file with ARM data is closed and then can be transferred (using a simple FTP) to the Tivoli Decision Support for OS/390 location where the collect occurs. The data provides the response time for all the application programs that have ARM API calls in their code.
UNIX Performance Component
Accounting Subcomponent helps you monitor the use of the UNIX system by user and command. It provides reports enabling charge back and capacity planning and information on disk space (by user and system), on print use (by user and print queue name), and on users and their network connections.
Performance Subcomponent provides comprehensive information about UNIX performance, summarized by month, day, and hour. This information includes statistics about disk I/O, disk space, and paging in addition to processor use.
Configuration Subcomponent provides information about the hardware and software configuration on multiple AIX systems. For example, you can check the software in each machine and the date of its installation.
Error Analysis Subcomponent
Error Analysis Subcomponent provides information about AIX errors by error ID, error type, resource name, and error class. Each component generates two types of reports:
