Description

As part of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring family, IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Applications V6.1 delivers immediate value with best practice situations and customized workspaces out-of-the-box. It helps ensure IT operations and administrators are alerted when problems arise, or even before they occur based on proactive notification of performance issues. You can correlate metrics, reducing the number of events that must be handled and avoiding false alerts. When alerts do occur, expert advice is provided to explain what the alert means and provide suggested actions to take. IBM Tivoli Monitoring can even take automated action to attempt to resolve the issue. Workflows can be created to define more complex problem signatures and actions, both of which help in reducing the need for manual intervention. You can use these powerful capabilities to help you more effectively and efficiently manage your end-to-end infrastructure from a single customizable interface. The specifics of the SAP Agent are described below.

The Tivoli Enterprise Portal provides strong visualization of the SAP performance and availability data captured by the monitor. This data can be used by subject matter experts to investigate and diagnose incidents related to these SAP landscapes. Real-time and historical data can be viewed side-by-side to identify changes. Combined with other IBM Tivoli Monitoring and system management solutions, organizations can have management and monitoring capabilities end-to-end across the heterogeneous environment, including SAP components and systems that SAP depends on. These capabilities allow IT departments to improve their incident and problem management processes, ultimately reducing mean time to resolution.

The specifics of the SAP Agent are described below.

SAP Agent

SAP is a leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software package. SAP integrates nearly all business processes into one software solution for use in most business. Companies may use it to help integrate their accounting, sales, distribution, manufacturing, planning, purchasing, human resources, analysis and other transactions into one application. SAP applications assist in providing an environment where "transactions are synchronized" throughout the systems.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Applications is a proactive solution to manage your mySAP™ applications such as R/3 Enterprise, Business Information Warehouse®, Advanced Planner, and Optimizer. It complements SAP's CCMS architecture and provides in-depth capabilities to help monitor, manage, and report on your SAP landscape.

A centralized management capability is provided for a jump-start management capability including current SAP operational platforms. Organizations can leverage the IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 foundation to manage their SAP landscapes and systems that SAP depends on, from a single centralized portal. This can help enable short time-to-value and can help in solving the operational issues of the SAP application landscape.

Specifically, the SAP Agent can provide the following management and maintenance capabilities for SAP landscapes:

  • Monitoring the availability of SAP landscapes, including components such as R/3 Enterprise, APO, and Business Warehouse
  • Metric rich monitoring capabilities based on IBM Tivoli custom ABAP code and SAP's CCMS
  • Automatic discovery and central management of infrastructure components such as Application Servers and Internet Transaction Servers
  • Integration into the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server for one-stop display of Enterprise data

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 IBM 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 for each IBM Tivoli application managing 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 customer's 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

Client device or client

A client device is a computer system that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, notebook computers, desktop computers, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, personal digital assistants, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business registered user

A registered user for IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business is any individual, machine, program, or device whose identity is referenced by or recorded in the IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business identity schema.

IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator connected system

A connected system is any directory, database, application, or file integrated or merged by IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator.

IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator registered user

A registered user of IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator is: (1) each individual, machine, program, or device whose identity is recorded in a connected system and whose identity can be synchronized by IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator; and (2) each individual, machine, program, or device that can access a connected system that is synchronized by IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator.

IBM Tivoli Identity Manager agent

An agent is code that enables the IBM Tivoli Identity Manager to communicate with a computer system to manage account definitions on the computer system and/or to receive notification of password changes from the computer system.

IBM Tivoli Identity Manager registered user

A registered user for IBM Tivoli Identity Manager is any individual, machine, program, or device whose identity is recorded in the IBM Tivoli Identity Manager identity store.

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 PSLC pricing, go to

Network node or node

Network nodes include routers, switches, hubs, and bridges that contain a network management agent. A single network node may contain any number of interfaces or ports.

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.

Port

A port is the physical connection between a device and the network.

Processor

A processor is a functional unit in a computer that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and an arithmetic and logic unit.

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 they are 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.

Tivoli Management Points

A Tivoli Management Point is a metric used to compute license quantities and is program specific.

Value Units

A Value Unit is a metric used to compute license quantities, is program specific, and is typically only used on products managing zSeries systems.

Passport Advantage

Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, customers may receive discounted pricing based on their total volume of eligible products, across all IBM brands, acquired worldwide. The volume is measured by determining the total Passport Advantage points value of the applicable acquisitions. Passport Advantage points are only used for calculating the entitled Passport Advantage discount.

To determine the required Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage, the Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Model applies. The customer's environment is evaluated on a per-product basis.

Use the following two-step process to determine the total Passport Advantage points value:

  1. Analyze the customer environment to determine the number of Tivoli Management Points or other charge unit for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determined by that analysis.
  2. Order the Passport Advantage part numbers. A Passport Advantage point value, which is the same worldwide for a specific part number regardless of where the order is placed, is assigned to each Tivoli product part number. The Passport Advantage point value for the applicable part number multiplied by the quantity for that part number will determine the Passport Advantage points for that Tivoli product part number. The sum of these Passport Advantage points determines the Passport Advantage point value of the applicable Tivoli product authorizations which then may be aggregated with the point value of other applicable Passport Advantage product acquisitions to determine the total Passport Advantage points value.

The discounted pricing available through Passport Advantage is expressed in the form of Suggested Volume Prices (SVPs), which vary depending on the SVP level. Each SVP level is assigned a minimum total Passport Advantage point value, which must be achieved, in order to qualify for that SVP level.

Media packs and documentation packs do not carry Passport Advantage points and are not eligible for SVP discounting.

For additional information on Passport Advantage, refer to the following Web site

The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:

  • License and Software Maintenance 12 Months — this is the product authorization with maintenance to the first anniversary date.
  • Annual Software Maintenance Renewal — this is the maintenance renewal for one anniversary that applies when a customer renews their existing coverage period prior to the anniversary date at which it expires.
  • Software Maintenance Reinstatement 12 Months — this is for customers who have allowed their Software Maintenance to expire, and later wish to reinstate their Software Maintenance.
  • Media packs — these are the physical media, such as CD-ROMs, that deliver the product's code.
  • Documentation packs — these contain printed documentation such as the User's Guide and Release Notes.
  • Custom Build Registration — this is used with products that have an IBM zSeries component. Ordering this part number results in a process to enable the customer to receive the zSeries code via the z/OS® Customized Offerings packaging techniques, that is, ServerPac, SystemPac®, or the Custom Build Product Delivery Option (CBPDO).

Exceptions to the Environment-Managed Licensing Model: IBM Tivoli products are priced based on the Environment-Managed Licensing Model and follow the definitions laid out in the Definitions section of this announcement, with the following exceptions:

  1. IBM Tivoli NetView®

    Count the processors in the servers in which IBM Tivoli NetView runs, plus the number of network nodes managed.

  2. IBM Tivoli Switch Analyzer

    Count the processors in the servers in which IBM Tivoli Switch Analyzer runs, plus the number of ports managed.

  3. IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business

    Count either the number of registered users or the number of processors in the servers in which IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business runs, but not both.

  4. IBM Tivoli Identity Manager

    Count either the number of registered users or the number of processors in the servers in which IBM Tivoli Identity Manager runs, but not both.

  5. IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Transaction Performance

    The Synthetic Transaction Investigator Player/Site Investigator requires a two processor entitlement.

  6. IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Operating Systems

    Count the processors in each system to be secured that operates with a UNIX-based operating system, including both clients and servers.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring Solutions: The "IBM Tivoli Monitoring" Solutions are a family of programs that help to monitor and manage distributed environments. The suite consists of an IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program and various "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for...." Programs.

The "IBM Tivoli Monitoring" Program is comprised of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring foundation and various operating system agents. The "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for..." Programs are solutions that are each comprised of various application agents designed to monitor and manage specific application areas (for example, the IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Databases Program may be comprised of DB2®, MS SQL, Oracle, and Sybase agents).

Each server with an "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for..." Program is based on, and requires licensing and deployment of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program as a prerequisite.

Customers are entitled to use any or all of the application agents that are delivered with an "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for ..." Program for each server licensed. Licensing is required for each server which deploys any or all of the application agents provided in a specific "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for..." Program.

The IBM Tivoli Monitoring Solutions are licensed by the Managed Processor.

Pricing example 1 — IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program

The customer's core environment requiring the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program includes:

Distributed servers

  • 20 uniprocessors
  • 65 2-way servers
  • 12 4-way servers
  • One 8-way server
  • One 12-way server with two virtual or logical partitions
  • One 14-way server
  • One 16-way Sun Ultra server with two 8-way physical partitions (only one of which is managed by Tivoli applications)
  • One 24-way server
  • One z800 Server with two uni-processor IFLs running Linux™ (also known as "zLinux" or "Linux on zSeries")

Note: zLinux or Linux on zSeries offerings may not be available for all Tivoli Programs. This licensing example assumes such availability. Linux on zSeries offerings have distinctly orderable part numbers in Passport Advantage, and should be used when ordering entitlements for IFLs running Linux.

Pricing for programs without a Linux on zSeries offering will exclude the z800 Server entitlement requirement indicated below.

The customer will require the following entitlements for the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program (266 Managed Processors):

                           Quantity         Processor

 Entitlements

Pricing example 2 — "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for..." Programs

In addition to the core environment described above (266 Managed Processor entitlement requirement for the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program), the customer decides to monitor ten 2-way virtual servers (five Citrix and five VMware). The customer must obtain the following entitlements:

IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Applications

                     Quantity         Processor
Systems              in customer      entitlements
managed              environment      required
 
2-way                20               20
Total Processor                       40
 Entitlements

Note that licensing of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program is required for every server with an "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for..." Program. Therefore, in this example, if the customer's two virtual servers are incremental to the servers described in the core environment, the customer also requires 20 additional Managed Processor entitlements of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Program for the new virtual servers.

Licensing is valid for any agent supported by the "IBM Tivoli Monitoring for..." Program.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor

In Full Capacity charging, PoEs 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.

  1. If there are program components included in the offering whose function is not to be included in the charge metric, these must be listed in the Program-unique Terms of the License Information.
  2. 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.
  3. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. Unless otherwise announced, 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.
  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 blade on which the program is run.

Per managed processor

Charges are based on the activated 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 PoEs are defined both in the Prices section of the announcement or the License Information's Program-unique Terms.

  1. If there are program components included in the offering whose function is not to be included in the charge metric, these must be listed in the Program-unique Terms of the License Information
  2. 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.
  3. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. Unless otherwise announced, 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.
  4. The program may not run on some or all of the processors for which PoEs are required by the program's valuation method.
  5. In the zSeries' IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  6. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  7. 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.

Basic license

Ordering information for Passport Advantage: Passport Advantage allows you to have a common anniversary date for Software Maintenance renewals, which can simplify management and budgeting for eligible new versions and releases (and related technical support) for your covered products. The anniversary date, established at the start of your Passport Advantage Agreement, will remain unchanged while your Passport Advantage Agreement remains in effect. New software purchases will initially include twelve full months of maintenance coverage. Maintenance in the second year (the first year of renewal) can be prorated to be coterminous with your common anniversary date. Thereafter, all software maintenance will renew at the common anniversary date and include twelve full months of maintenance.

Refer to the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement and to the IBM Software Maintenance Handbook for specific terms relating to, and a more complete description of, technical support provided through Software Maintenance.

The quantity to be specified for the Passport Advantage part numbers in the following table is per processor. To order for Passport Advantage, specify the desired part number and quantity.
