Description

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

IBM DataQuant for Multiplatforms is capable as of March 16, 2007, 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. A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested at

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You 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 (POE). It is your 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.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements that is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a POE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

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

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

Terms and conditions

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Agreement: IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information (LI) document and POE govern your use of the program. POEs are required for all authorized use.

Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support.

The program's LI will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

Limited warranty: Yes

Warranty: IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Guide for further information at

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program ("Warranty Period").

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, return it within 30 days from the invoice date to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it for a refund.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
  • For programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by the customer.

Copy and use on home/portable computer: No

Usage restriction: Yes

IBM DataQuant for Multiplatforms

  1. Charges for this program are based on the total number of processor cores from which the data being processed by the program originates, including any processor cores available to the database servers on which the data originally resides, and the processor cores available to the database servers to which the program is licensed. The total number of processor cores within database servers on which the data being processed by the program resides and which are attached or available to the program may not exceed the number of value unit entitlements authorized by the applicable POE or authorized by each product authorization acquired under Passport Advantage. If the total number exceeds the quantity of value unit entitlements in your POE or exceeds your product authorizations acquired under Passport Advantage, you must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA.
  2. The following terms and conditions apply to the High availability/failover licensing in connection with your use of this program with DB2 Enterprise Server Edition:
    • After the server is fully licensed, it can be used to service user workload. In High Availability configurations this server is called a Primary server; additional servers acting as backups are called Standby servers that may be deployed in Active or Idle configurations.
    • In Active Standby or Idle Standby, You must acquire the appropriate value unit entitlements for each processor core or POE in addition to the appropriate value unit entitlements for each processor core or POE you obtained for the Primary server.
    • 2.1 Active Standby
      • In an Active Standby configuration, the program is operational on all servers to service user transactions or queries. Because each of the Active Standby servers is used to operate the program for user transactions or queries before and after a failure, the program must be fully licensed on all Active Servers.
      • In Active Standby, you must obtain the appropriate value unit entitlements for the program for the number of processor cores attached or available to the Active Standby servers. For example, consider an environment with two servers, one Primary server with four processor cores and one Active Standby server with two processor cores. This environment must obtain the appropriate value unit entitlements for six processor cores (four for the Primary server and two for the Active Standby server).
    • 2.2 Idle Standby
      • In Idle Standby configuration, Idle Standby servers have the program installed, however, they do not have the program operational to service user transactions or query workloads. A server is considered "idle" if it is used exclusively for administrative actions that assist in failover scenarios such as having a database in rollforward pending state to support log shipping, or in making a flash copy of a DB2 database and then performing a database backup of this copy on another server, or in keeping a standby database synchronized using the High Availability Disaster Recovery (HADR) component.
      • In Idle Standby, you must obtain the appropriate value unit entitlements for the program for one processor core per Idle Standby server only, regardless of the number of processor cores attached or available to the server. For example, consider an environment with two servers, one Primary server with four processor cores and one Idle Standby server with two processor cores. This environment must obtain the appropriate value unit entitlements for five processor cores (four for the Primary server and one for the Idle Standby server).

For additional information, refer to the License Information Document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site
