New in IDS V11.10

Resilient data server for continuous availability, scalability, and security

  • IDS Continuous Availability Feature for cluster solutions offers cost-effective scalability solutions with continuous availability. If a node failure occurs, a failover to other nodes within the cluster enables your critical business to continue to operate.
  • IDS High-availability Data Replication (HDR) with Multiple Remote Secondary Servers (RSS) enables you to create a robust failsafe multi-site global availability plan and optimize your investment by utilizing all the standby servers to perform real work, distributing the processing anywhere in the world. Multiple failover sites can be created to ensure business continuity in case of location outage.
  • IDS Continuous Log Restore function enables high availability, restoring logical log to a standby server, using the ontape and ON-Bar utilities, and using the standby server when the primary one fails.
  • Set Recovery Time Objective (RTO) policy to set the time, in seconds, for IDS to recover from a problem after a server restart.
  • Automatic ordering of dbspaces, based on dbspace sizes, during backup and restore, to achieve maximum parallelism and reducing backup/restore time.
  • Using ON-Bar utility, backup and restore the whole system using parallel I/O.
  • Encrypted communication and data transmission gives you enhanced security between any primary and secondary nodes, and any Enterprise Replication nodes.
  • IDS Advanced Access Control Feature includes label-based access control by rows or columns, extensions to SQL syntax and existing functions for auditing, administration utilities, backup and restore, and high availability data replication.

Agile data server for high performance

  • Performance enhancement and transaction concurrency with support for last committed reads.
  • Enhanced checkpoint algorithm to ensure transactions are not blocked by checkpoint operations.
  • Enhanced performance of enterprise replication with increased parallelism when applying transactions on target servers.
  • Support for a full select subquery as derived tables or table expressions in the FROM clause of a SELECT statement.
  • Extended ANSI SQL support on optimizer directives for query performance, including access method, explain mode, and optimization-goal directives.
  • Automated statistics collection when creating B-tree indexes for enhanced query optimization, view performance statistics on completed queries, and view query plans from SET EXPLAIN requests in different output modes.
  • New Index Self-Join method to enhance performance of queries using composite index.
  • Configurable private memory cache for virtual processors to decrease memory allocation time for enhanced transaction concurrency.
  • Support for direct I/O on file systems, commonly called "cooked" file systems, with similar performance to raw devices.

Advanced application development with flexible and fast time-to-value deployment

  • Web Feature Service (WFS) API enables Web-service requests for location information, with geographical data, to be platform independent. The WFS API is compatible with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) WFS standard, and is supported on both Spatial and Geodetic DataBlades.
  • New release of Spatial DataBlade V8.21 with support for WFS API.
  • New release of Geodetic DataBlade V3.12 with support for WFS API.

  • SPL language support extensions for enhanced applications compatibility: labels, GOTO, and LOOP.

Lowest TCO with hands-free administration

  • New SQL Admin API to automate database administration, schedule administrative operations, and monitor server activities from within or from another application. The Admin API is open and published to enable solutions customization and third-party tools enhancement.
  • New Scheduler enables database administrators (DBAs) and applications to schedule and monitor server events and resources usage, and schedule common administrative tasks for automatic execution and reporting.
  • New separately downloadable and free-of-charge GUI-based OpenAdmin Tool for IDS. This Web-based admin tool allows DBAs to administer and monitor both local and remote servers, drill down on resource usage, events, query performance statistics, and query execution plan for tuning.
  • Dynamically change Enterprise Replication (ER) configuration and environment variables for the current session, and dynamically alter replication schema while ER is active.
  • Easier Windows installation using Install Shield tool.
  • Automate setting session environments on user connect or disconnect/termination with built-in session configuration routines, automate operations needed after application termination that could not be easily done within an application.
  • ON-Bar performance reporting interval to update progress on backup and restore.
  • Dynamically enable multiple users in Administration mode, to perform administration tasks during restricted access period.

Definitions

Client device

A Client device is a computing device 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, deskside computers, technical workstations, appliances, automated teller machines (ATMs), point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each client device accessing the program in any manner.

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user and/or client devices. A PoE must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processor cores and partitions in the server on which the program runs or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

Hot/Active Standby

In a Hot/Active Standby configuration, the program is operational on the primary server and each Standby/Active server to service user transactions or queries. Because each of the Hot Standby/Active servers is used to operate the program for active read transactions or queries before and after a failure, the program must be fully licensed on all active servers.

You must be licensed under the Value Unit charge metric. When in Hot/Active Standby, you must license the program for the number of processor cores attached or available to the Hot/Active Standby servers. For example, consider an environment with two servers, one primary server with 400 Value Units and 1 Hot/Active Standby server with 200 Value Units. This environment must be licensed for 600 Value Units (400 Value Units for the primary server and 200 Value Units for the Hot/Active Standby server).

Idle Standby

In an Idle Standby configuration, Idle Standby servers have the program installed, however, they do not have the program operational to service active read 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 roll forward pending state to support log shipping, or in making a copy of an IDS database and then performing a database backup of this copy on another server, or in keeping a standby database synchronized using the High-availability Data Replication (HDR) component. A server is also considered idle if it is used exclusively in support of log shipping for database restore using the Continuous Log Restore function.

You must be licensed under the Value Unit charge metric. When in Idle Standby, you must license the program for 100 Value Units per Idle Standby server only, regardless of the number of processor cores attached or available to the server. For example, consider an environment with 2 servers, 1 primary server with 400 Value Units and 1 Idle Standby server with 200 Value Units. This environment must be licensed for 500 Value Units (400 Value Units for the primary server and 100 Value Units for the Idle Standby server).

Cold Standby

In a Cold Standby configuration, Cold Standby servers have the program installed, however they do not have the program started or operational. The program is installed for backup purposes only on the Cold Standby servers.

You must be licensed under the Value Unit charge metric. When in Cold Standby, there is no charge for the Cold Standby servers. For example, consider an environment with 2 servers, 1 primary server with 400 Value Units and 1 Cold Standby server with 200 Value Units. This environment must be licensed for 400 Value Units for the primary server, no Value Units are required on the Cold Standby server.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which 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. 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. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor Value Unit table at 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.

Sub-capacity processor (Value Unit)

For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Value Units based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for sub-capacity terms or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms.

Authorized user

An Authorized User is one and only one individual with a specific identity within or outside your enterprise. A PoE is required for each authorized user accessing the program or any program component on a single server either directly or indirectly through any means. An example of indirect access would be through a multiplexing program, client device, or application server. For a single authorized user to access the program on more than one server, additional PoEs must be acquired and each PoE must be based on the charge metric associated with the program being accessed.

The program can be accessed by multiple authorized users provided that an authorized user license entitlement has been obtained for each individual. An authorized user's ID is unique to the uniquely identified individual and cannot be shared with or used by others or transferred. A single authorized user ID, however, is entitled to establish one or more connections to the program (but only on a single server for each entitlement), each for use solely by the identified authorized user, and only the single authorized user entitlement is required. If an authorized user makes connections to other IDS data servers (or to this program residing on a separate server), additional PoEs must be acquired for those connections using the charge metric for those other IDS data servers or for the other program.

Internet connection limitation — Internet connections are prohibited. No authorized user may access the program through an Internet connection.

The following minimum authorized user requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Enterprise Edition V11.10: The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least 25 authorized users per 100 Value Units of each server on which the program is installed or (b) the total number of authorized users accessing the program. If the number of Value Units of the server is not an exact multiple of 100, then the number of authorized users that must at a minimum be acquired will be 25 for each 100 Value Units and a pro rata portion of 100 represented by the number of such Value Units in excess of the number of Value Units exceeding the number of Value Units that is a multiple of 100 (rounded up to the next whole number). For example, if the server upon which you install the program has a rating of 245 Value Units, then a minimum of 62 authorized user entitlements are required for the IDS Enterprise Edition authorized user license: 25 for each of the first 100 Value Units and 12 for the last 45 Value Units. The 12 for the last 45 Value Units is calculated as 45/100 times 25 = 11.25, which is rounded up to 12.

The following minimum authorized user requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Workgroup Edition V11.10 and IDS Express Edition V11.10: The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least 5 authorized users per server on which you install the program or (b) the total number of authorized users accessing the program.

Concurrent session

A concurrent session, at a given point in time, is each logical connection, existing at that time, between the program and a client device. Each such existing connection is counted as a concurrent session whether or not it is actually in use. If an individual end user establishes multiple connections, each one is counted as a separate concurrent session, even if they share a common physical pathway.

A PoE is required for each concurrent session accessing the program or any program component either directly or indirectly through any means. An example of indirect access would be through a multiplexing program, client device, or application server. The number of connections is not reduced by any program, client device, or machine, such as a front-end server, application server, or multiplexer, which may be used to connect, manage, and/or concentrate the logical connections.

Each batch process being executed at the same time is also considered to be a concurrent session.

You must acquire a separate concurrent session license entitlement for each concurrent session as described above.

Internet connection limitation — Internet connections are prohibited. No authorized user may access the program through an Internet connection.

The following minimum concurrent sessions requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Enterprise Edition V11.10: The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least 10 concurrent sessions per 100 Value Units of each server on which the program is installed or (b) the total number of concurrent sessions accessing the program. If the number of Value Units is not a multiple of 100, then the number of concurrent sessions that must at a minimum be acquired will be 10 for each 100 Value Units and a pro rata portion of one hundred represented by the number of such Value Units in excess of the number of Value Units exceeding the number of Value Units that is a multiple of 100 (rounded up to the next whole number). For example, if the server upon which you install the program has a rating of 233 Value Units, then a minimum of 24 concurrent session entitlements are required for the IDS Enterprise Edition Concurrent Session license: 10 for each of the first 100 Value Units and 4 for the last 33 Value Units. The 4 for the last 33 Value Unit is calculated as 33/100 times 10 = 3.3, which is rounded up to 4.

The following minimum concurrent sessions requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Workgroup Edition V11.10: The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least five concurrent sessions per server on which you install the program; or, (b) the total number of concurrent sessions accessing the program.

Sub capacity for selected middleware products

Sub-capacity licensing on a per processor or per Value Unit basis is available for selected middleware products. To offer sub-capacity licensing, IBM software products implement IBM Tivoli® License Compliance Manager within their offerings so that you can monitor and report quarterly to IBM on the use of the programs on a continuous basis.

More information can be found on the Passport Advantage Web site

Eligibility requirements for sub-capacity licensing

To be eligible for sub-capacity licensing terms on this product, you must agree to install and configure IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software, in accordance with the IBM Tivoli License Manager publications, and to enable the collection of program use data on all eligible machines subject to sub capacity terms.

For those machines running programs with sub-capacity licensing terms, you must use IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software to monitor program use and submit to IBM an IBM Use Report each calendar quarter. Multiple copies of IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software or IBM Tivoli License Manager are not required. You can use more copies if you need them to support your operational environment, but only one copy is required to monitor all your sub-capacity licensed products.

Additionally, if this is the first product you have licensed under sub capacity terms, you must agree to the terms of an attachment to your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express contract and submit a new Passport Advantage enrollment form. First-time sub-capacity clients also have an opportunity to ensure a primary business contact is established for their contracts.

For more information on required and entitled license capacity, license requirements, and reporting, refer to Software Announcement 205-093 , dated April 19, 2005.

If you order (this product) under sub-capacity terms, IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software will be made available to you if you do not already have one. You must install and configure this tool for your sub-capacity products. Alternately, you can use Tivoli License Manager. Once the license manager software is installed, you will be required to register online. (IBM may need to contact you in order to finalize the registration process.) You must monitor program use on a continuous basis with an IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software and submit IBM Use Reports to IBM on a calendar quarterly basis.

IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software is documented in the following customer publications, which are available from IBM Publications Center at
