Description
Bottom rule

IDS V11.50 offers significant new functionality to meet today's business demands for global business continuity, scalability, and lower costs. IDS delivers lowest cost of ownership, scalable administration while keeping overhead costs low, high-volume transactions, flexible and fast deployment of applications, optimized applications investment, and support for service-oriented architecture (SOA), while further reducing your cost of ownership with best-of-breed administration and automation.

IDS V11.50 offers low-cost, scalable, and simple-to-deploy multinode active clusters for high-availability (MACH 11) data servers for business continuity, scalability, and security.

IDS V11.50 Continuous Availability Feature (CAF) offers easy and seamless deployment of applications on cluster solutions, providing a rich set of options for high availability (HA) with seamless scalability and lower costs. No modifications or porting are required for high-availability applications to deploy on the IDS cluster solution, transparently utilizing all the capabilities of the CAF, such as automatic failover of nodes, dynamic client connection routing, reconnect client application to another node, and workload distribution based on defined service levels and server load. Cluster nodes can be added dynamically, on demand, as workload increases on the cluster, without interrupting applications or shutting down the cluster. Clients can seamlessly and dynamically connect to any server in the cluster using the Connection Manager. Users can configure clusters of nodes for delivering service levels, workload distribution, and automatic failover sequence. If a node fails, Connection Manager can reconnect the client application to the next node in the sequence.

Connection Manager extends updates on secondary nodes, further maximizing your hardware investments. Any clients connected to a Secondary HA node may now perform updates as well as reads. A new Arbitrator corroborates that there is a real node failure before performing a failover, avoiding false-positive failures and unnecessary recoveries later. You may add data concurrency with versioning information to accelerate look-up and determine whether information has changed.

Enhancements to the Open Admin Tool (OAT) for IDS have been added to easily configure, manage, and add cluster nodes. Using OAT, the configuration wizard can help you easily define and configure HA and cluster environments, monitor and administer all HA and cluster nodes, as well as add new nodes dynamically, without needing to shut down the cluster. Administration and management of cluster nodes can also be done hands free, from within an application, using the SQL Admin API, allowing you to customize administration for your solution needs.

Additional ease-of-use enhancement in OAT provide customers with ability to enable or disable automatic statistics collection by monitoring updates to tables and updating table statistics for query plan optimization. Enhancements to administration let you have read access to OAT to create access groups, enabling more users to access OAT to drill down on performance and monitoring, without altering tables and schema, and by adding histogram graphing to view usage statistics over time and zoom in on intervals for more detailed analysis.

Industry-leading advanced application development tooling

IDS V11.50 offers extensive new application-development capabilities, enabling users to utilize industry-leading development tooling, speed up development, and maximize their application investment.

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, cell phones, blackberry devices, 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 Proof of Entitlement (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 and/or write transactions or queries before and after a failure, the program must be fully licensed on all active Servers.

You may be licensed under the Value Unit (VU), Concurrent Session, or Authorized User charge metric. When in Hot/Active Standby under the VU metric, 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 2 Servers, 1 Primary Server with 400 Value Units (VU) and 1 Hot/Active Standby Server with 200 VUs. This environment must be licensed for 600 VUs (400 VUs for the Primary Server and 200 VUs for the Hot/Active Standby Server).

When in Hot/Active Standby under the Concurrent Session or Authorized User metric, you must acquire the number of Concurrent Session or Authorized User entitlements for each Hot/Active Standby Server as you would if the Hot/Active Standby Server were a Primary Server, including meeting the minimum required per Server. Refer to the sections on Charge Metrics under the Level of Use portion of this LI below.

For example:

a) Consider an environment with 2 Servers, 1 Primary with 100 Concurrent Sessions on the IDS Enterprise Edition, and 1 Hot/Active Standby Server with 50 Concurrent Sessions, This environment must be licensed for total of 150 Concurrent Sessions (100 on the Primary and 50 on the Hot/Active Standby) on the Enterprise Edition.

b) Consider an environment with 2 Servers, 1 Primary with 150 Authorized Users on the IDS Enterprise Edition, and 1 Hot/Active Standby Server with 20 Authorized Users. This environment must be licensed for total of 175 Authorized Users (150 on the Primary and 25 Ýthe minimum required¨ on the Hot/Active Standby) on the Enterprise Edition.

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 and/or write 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 Informix Dynamic Server (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 may be licensed under the Value Unit (VU), Concurrent Session, or Authorized User charge metric. When a program is used in Idle Standby, you must acquire the number of license entitlements for each copy of the program on each Idle Standby Server as indicated below, using the same charge metric as used for the program on the corresponding Primary Server:

  1. One hundred VUs for IDS Workgroup or Enterprise Edition
  2. Five Concurrent Sessions or five Authorized Users for IDS Workgroup Edition
  3. Ten Concurrent Sessions or 25 Authorized Users for IDS Enterprise Edition

For example:

a) When Value Unit is the applicable charge metric, consider an environment with 2 Servers, 1 Primary Server with 400 Value Units (VU) and 1 Idle Standby Server with 200 VUs. This environment must be licensed for 500 VUs (400 VUs must be acquired for the Primary Server, and 100 VUs must be acquired for the Idle Standby Server).

b) When Concurrent Session or Authorized User is the applicable charge metric for the Workgroup Edition, consider an environment with 2 Servers, 1 Primary with 100 Concurrent Sessions or Authorized Users, and 1 Idle Standby Server. The Idle Standby Server will require entitlements to either 5 Concurrent Sessions or 5 Authorized Users, as applicable. This environment must be licensed for total of 105 Concurrent Sessions or Authorized Users on the Workgroup Edition, and the program on the Primary Server may not exceed 100 Concurrent Sessions or Authorized Users without acquiring additional entitlements.

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 may be licensed under the Value Unit, Concurrent Session, or Authorized User charge metric. When in Cold Standby, there is no charge for the Cold Standby Server. For example, when Value Units is the applicable charge metric, consider an environment with 2 Servers, 1 Primary Server with 400 Value Units (VU) and 1 Cold Standby Server with 200 VUs. This environment must be licensed for 400 VUs for the Primary Server; no VUs are required for the purpose of maintaining a backup copy of the program on the Cold Standby Server.

When Concurrent Session or Authorized User is the applicable charge metric on the Workgroup Edition, consider an environment with 2 Servers, 1 Primary with 10 Concurrent Sessions or Authorized Users, and one Cold Standby Server, The Cold Standby Server does not require any proof of entitlement (PoE) for the purpose of maintaining a backup copy of the program in cold standby, This environment must be licensed for total of 10 Concurrent Sessions or Authorized Users on the Workgroup Edition.

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 or resources which may include servers, 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 Processor Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Processor Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the Processor Value Unit table on the following Web site

http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/ wdocs/pvu_table_for_customers

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Processor 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 Processor 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.

Registered user

A registered user is one and only one named individual within or outside your enterprise which is recorded in a registry (for example, table, directory, file) maintained by you. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under a registered user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Authorized user

You must acquire a separate Authorized User license entitlement for each Authorized User of the program installed on each individual Server.

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.

Each separate individual that uses a connection, directly or indirectly, made to this program through the Intranet (connections from within your enterprise) or through the Internet (connection from outside your enterprise) must be counted as a separate Authorized User and a separate entitlement must be acquired for such Authorized User.

The following minimum Authorized User requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Enterprise Edition V11.50:

The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least 25 Authorized Users per Server on which the program is installed or (b) the total number of Authorized Users accessing the program.

The following minimum Authorized User requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Workgroup Edition V11.50:

The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least five 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 is a logical connection made between the program (residing on a single Server) and a Client Device. Each such connection is counted as a Concurrent Session whether or not it is actually in use and regardless of the duration of the connection and/or periods of activity. 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. From the day you begin using the program, the highest number of connections established concurrently at any time on each Server will be counted for purposes of determining the total Concurrent Session entitlements required. You must acquire entitlements for the greatest number of logical connections in existence at any time on each Server. Refer to the example below.

Each logical connection made between a Client Device and a copy of the program residing on a Server is counted as a Concurrent Session for which an entitlement is required. For example, if copies of the program reside on two different Servers and a single Client Device connects to the program on both Servers, then two Concurrent Sessions have been established and a PoE must be acquired for each of them.

Each logical connection from a Client Device made, directly or indirectly, to this program (residing on a single Server), through the Intranet (connections from within your enterprise) or through the Internet (connections from outside your enterprise) is counted as a separate Concurrent Session and a separate entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for such Concurrent Session.

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.

For example, if you install a copy of the program on each of 3 Servers and from the day you begin using the program, the greatest number of Concurrent Sessions established on Server 1 was 12, on Server 2 was 70, and on Server 3 was 89, then you must acquire, and pay for, PoE entitlements for 171 Concurrent Sessions, even if the number of your logical connections decreases over time (for example, logical connections are reduced to the following: Server 1: 12; Server 2: 56; Server 3: 80). Of course, you may subsequently again increase your total number of logical connections to one hundred-seventy-one (171) without needing to acquire additional Concurrent Session entitlements; provided that you do not increase the number of logical connections on any one of the Servers beyond the highest number of logical connections ever previously established on that Server. In this example, you could again increase the logical connections on Server 2 up to 70, and could increase the logical connections on Server 3 up to 89, without needing to acquire additional Concurrent Session entitlements. However, if you increased the number of logical connections on Server 1 to 25, even though the number of logical connections on Servers 2 and 3 remained at 56 and 80, respectively, you would need to acquire an additional 13 Concurrent Session entitlements for Server 1 (bringing your total entitlements to 184). Concurrent Sessions are not equivalent to concurrent users.

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.

The following minimum Concurrent Sessions requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Enterprise Edition V11.50:

The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least 10 Concurrent Sessions per Server on which the program is installed or (b) the total number of Concurrent Sessions accessing the program.

The following minimum Concurrent Sessions requirement applies to licenses to the IDS Workgroup Edition V11.50:

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

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

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

Limited warranty applies

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 Handbook for further information at

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/guides/handbook.html

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the 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 CoD software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.
Authorization for use on home/portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
