Description

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON DE on z/OS V3.1

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON DE on z/OS is a systems management integration tool for IT staff and management who need to understand the impact of system events in their enterprise. Tivoli OMEGAMON DE on z/OS allows you to view information from a wide variety of tools in one user portal, from multiple OMEGAMON XE monitors, as well as third-party software. This is designed to help you make decisions more quickly, efficiently, and proactively on an enterprise level.

With Tivoli OMEGAMON DE on z/OS, you can easily build application views so you can see what is going on with applications as they use resources across the network. This includes applications that run across multiple platforms. You can then quickly locate the source of a problem affected by high-priority applications.

Tivoli OMEGAMON DE on z/OS V3.1.0 is upgraded for compatibility with other OMEGAMON XE releases.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services on z/OS V6.1

IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services is the foundation on which all the OMEGAMONs, both mainframe/distributed and IBM Monitoring V6.1, is built upon. This replaces the CT®/350 and CT/360 foundations in the future.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services on z/OS V6.1 is offered for those customers who feel the need to either run the Tivoli Enterprise Management Server component on a z/OS platform and/or run the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server on an instance of Linux running on zSeries. A typical example of when you would order IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services on z/OS V6.1 is if you are an IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 or OMEGAMON XE distributed customer who wants to have a hub or remote TEMS Tivoli Enterprise Management Server on z/OS.

Another example is if you are an OMEGAMON XE mainframe customer who wants to place the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server on a instance of Linux running on zSeries hardware. Included in the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services on z/OS V6.1 solution are three components. They are:

  • Tivoli Enterprise Portal (previously known as CNP)
  • Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server (previously known as CNPS)
  • Tivoli Enterprise Management Server (previously known as CMS)

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON DE on z/OS and IBM Tivoli Monitoring Services on z/OS are capable, when used in accordance with IBM's associated 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 zSeries IPLA programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each zSeries 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 customers. For each zSeries 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 offers additional price benefits for customers. The quantity of each zSeries IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as "entitled license capacity". If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a zSeries IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit, and
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

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 Web site

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

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. The customer may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement. It is the customer's responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing

IBM Tivoli software products are priced using IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-Based Pricing system is based upon the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model, which uses a managed-environment approach — whereby price is determined by what is managed rather than the number and type of product components installed.

For example, all servers monitored with IBM Tivoli's monitoring product (IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other IBM Tivoli products may manage clients, client devices, agents, network nodes, users, or other items, and are licensed and priced accordingly.

Unlike typical systems management licensing models that require entitlements of specific software components to specific systems, the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model provides the customer flexibility to deploy its IBM Tivoli software products within its environment in a manner that can address and respond to the customer's evolving architecture. That is, as the architecture of a customer's environment changes, the customer's implementation of IBM Tivoli software can be altered as needed without affecting the customer's license requirements (as long as the customer does not exceed its entitlements to the software).

Under Enhanced Value-Based Pricing, licensing and pricing of server-oriented applications are determined based upon the server's use in the customer's environment. Typically, such applications are licensed and priced in a manner that corresponds to each installed and activated processor of the server managed by the IBM Tivoli application to help correlate price to value while offering a simple solution.

Where a server is physically partitioned, this approach is modified. This partitioning technique is the approach used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. For servers capable of physical partitioning (for example, IBM's pSeries® Scalable POWERparallel Systems® servers, Sun Ultra servers, and HP Superdome servers), an entitlement is required for each processor in the physical partition being managed by the Tivoli application. For example, assume that a server has 24 processors installed in aggregate. If this server is not partitioned, entitlements are required for all 24 processors. If, however, it is physically partitioned into three partitions each containing eight processors, and Tivoli products were managing only one of the three partitions, then entitlements would be required for the eight processors on the physical partition managed by the IBM Tivoli application.

For servers with virtual or logical partitions, entitlements are required for all installed and activated processors on the server. For each IBM Tivoli application managing a clustered environment, licensing is based on the cumulative number of installed and activated processors on each server in the cluster. Where the cluster includes physically partitioned servers, the considerations described above concerning physically partitioned servers apply as well.

Enhanced Value-Based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC/UNIX® and Microsoft™ Windows™/Intel™ technologies, in order to simplify the customers licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does not differentiate between non-zSeries® server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to zSeries and other host servers as well.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions

IBM Integrated Facility for Linux™ (IFL)

This optional facility enables additional processing capacity exclusively for Linux workload, with no effect on the model designation of a zSeries or OS/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM Integrated Facility for Linux will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS, OS/390, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems/applications. There is, as indicated, a charge associated with the IFL; and there may also be a charge for applications that run on the IFL.

Millions of Service Units (MSU)

An MSU is defined as millions of Central Processing Unit (CPU) service units per hour; the measure of capacity used to describe the computing power of the hardware processors on which S/390® or zSeries software runs. Processor MSU values are determined by the hardware vendor, IBM, or Software Compatible Vendors (SCVs).

For more detailed information about zSeries software pricing, go to

Partitions

A server's resources (CPU, memory, I/O, interconnects and buses) may be divided according to the needs of the applications running on the server. This partitioning can be implemented with physical boundaries (Physical Partitions) or logical boundaries (Logical Partitions).

Physical Partitions are defined by a collection of processors dedicated to a workload and can be used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. In this method, the partitions are divided along hardware boundaries and processors, and the I/O boards, memory, and interconnects are not shared.

Logical Partitions are defined by software rather than hardware and allocate a pool of processing resources to a collection of workloads. These partitions, while separated by software boundaries, share hardware components and run in one or more Physical Partitions.

Processor

Processor ("per processor" charging under full capacity) in full capacity charging, Proof of Entitlements must be acquired for all activated "processors" (available for use) that are on the server where the program or a component of the program is run.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the zSeries' Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor".
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  5. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the program is run. When a server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are "inactive", four processors are active for the customer.

Managed processor (charging under full capacity in the "managed environment") charges are based on the active processors on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the program rather than on the server where the program is run. The managed processors which require proofs of entitlement (PoEs) are defined both in the Prices section of the Announcement or the License Information's program-unique terms.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. The program may not run on some or all of the processors for which PoEs are required by the Program's valuation method.
  4. In the zSeries' Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor".
  5. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.
  6. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blades with which the program is affiliated.

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more clients and/or other devices over a network. Examples include, but are not limited to, file servers, print servers, mail servers, database servers, application servers, and Web servers.

Standby or backup systems

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

Value Units

A Value Unit is a metric used to compute license quantities and is program specific.

Pricing example

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON DE on z/OS V3.1

The product is licensed in VUE007.

The scales below are used to calculate the equivalent number of Value Units for a specified number of MSUs.

In the example below, the customer is managing 1,500 MSUs:

                                      Value
                                      Units/              Value
MSUs                                  MSU                 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 rounded up to the next integer. So the customer will need to license 344 Value Units in this example.

Value Units for non-MSU-based S/390 processors:

                                      Value
                                      Units/
System                                system
 
MP3000 H30                             6
MP3000 H50                             8
MP3000 H70                            12
ESL Models                             2

Value Units for IBM 9672 processors are based upon the full capacity of these systems. This is applicable to all zSeries systems measured on MSU capacity. Information on MSU capacities can be found in the "IBM System/370™, System/390® and zSeries Machine Exhibit", Z125-3901.

Full-capacity mainframes

In cases where full-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

Full-machine based

The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with full machine-based terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machines where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, refer to "The System/370, System/390, and zSeries Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901)" or visit the "Mainframes" section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

Sub-capacity mainframes

In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

Execution-based

The required capacity of a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

z/OS-based

The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS (and z/OS.e) on the machines where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

Reference-based

The required license capacity of a zSeries 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.

For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, refer to "The System/370, System/390, and zSeries Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901)" or visit the "Mainframes" section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

For more information on sub-capacity zSeries IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement 204-184 , dated August 10, 2004.

Additional information for products with reference-based terms zSeries IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in environment the zSeries IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single/stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. Customers may have one or more different environments across their enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each zSeries IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment the required license capacity of the zSeries IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one

  1. That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement 198-001 , dated January 13, 1998
  2. Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the Sysplex

Sub-capacity eligibility

To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select zSeries 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 zSeries (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS (or z/OS.e) operating systems
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
  • All instances of the z/OS operating (or z/OS.e) systems must be running in z/Architecture™ (64-bit) mode

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 zSeries Software Pricing Web site

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

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for zSeries Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for z800 and z890 Software License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract — "Amendment for zSeries Platform Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929-02 or higher)". Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous zSeries IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-Capacity Utilization Determination: Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the utilization of an eligible operating system and machine (for example, z/OS running in z/Architecture (64 bit) mode on a zSeries (or equivalent) server).

Over time, customers will be contacted by IBM to migrate their use entitlements from the current portfolio to the replacement product. The table that follows provides a mapping, as well as whether or not a trade-up charge may apply. (A trade-up is an incremental license fee to move up from one product to another). Customers unwilling or unable to migrate to the replacement offering will be migrated to the same offering, but under Value Unit pricing. The customer must be current on maintenance to be eligible for migrations. Customers not current will have to pay a get-current or a maintenance reinstatement fee. The migration is for the same capacity as currently licensed when converted to the pricing metric announced for the replacement offering (for example, MIPS or other metric > MSUs/Value Units). Initial migration quotes will be generated using standard MIPS-> MSU or similar ratios, though customers will be migrated to ensure that they are entitled to use the software on the same systems that they are currently managing by adjusting the MSU quantities where required.
