Overview

Service oriented architecture (SOA) is used as the backbone for many new mission-critical applications that bring together data from numerous different IT systems. Maintaining high availability for SOA environments requires a holistic management approach that includes visibility to the complete path of the transaction and the resources on which the services rely. When availability problems do occur, reducing mean-time-to-repair requires an understanding of the performance of the services and the health of the underlying resources in context of the actual service flow.

IBM Tivoli® Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 (Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform) delivers an integrated offering for SOA management across the services, application, and middleware layers. Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 combines the strength of in-depth Web services management with the management of WebSphere® Application Servers, WebSphere MQ, and WebSphere Message Broker systems to deliver the information required to help meet demanding service levels required of SOA-based applications. When problems arise at the services layer, a launch-in-context capability of the application and messaging management components of Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 makes it easy to find the root cause. IBM Tivoli delivers the out-of-the-box management that can provide a quick time-to-value for IT operations, architects, and subject matter experts.

Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 is delivered as a multi-program package that includes:

  • IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for SOA V7.1
  • IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Web Resources V6.2, with fix pack 1
  • IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON® XE for Messaging V6.0.1
  • IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.2, with fix pack 1
  • IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Virtual Servers V6.1

Programs within the deliverable package may contain a limited use license subject to usage restriction on use of the program or various components of the program. Refer to the License Information document for terms applicable to these programs.

Today's integrated world of SOA-based applications requires an SOA management solution that can provide you with a complete picture of your IT environment. This means being able to see a comprehensive picture of the Web service flows and health from Microsoft® .NET to IBM Customer Information Control System (CICS®). However, stopping at the services layer or manually trying to tie Web services to their underlying resources can waste valuable time when problems occur. Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 delivers in-depth management for Web Services, the WebSphere Application Servers, and WebSphere Message Broker servers on which SOA environments rely. Beyond providing in-depth management, Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 links together the information across these layers in an easy-to-use Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP) interface.

While service fault and performance data is provided at the services level, many times it can be the underlying infrastructure that needs operator attention. From the Services Management workspaces, an operator can link into any of the other workspaces for messaging management (agent that monitors WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Message Broker), application management (agents that monitor the application server) or server management operating system agents. This helps deliver faster problem resolution, leveraging the value of other management agents.

Key features of Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2

Service management

The service management function provides monitoring and management of the message flows at the services layer. Service management provides content rich views that provide easy drill down to the related supporting infrastructure components. Topology views offer a higher level of understanding of Web services relationships. The enhanced topology views can display service to service relationships in the TEP. From these views, you can easily see service status and click and drill down to metrics associated with a particular service. In addition, views are provided by service requestor, such as an IP address or client ID. This helps track where service requests originate.

From the topology views, cross-product workspace linkages in the TEP are supported, which helps with quick problem resolution from service monitoring to underlying infrastructure monitoring. A set of built-in situations and workflows are provided for the common areas of concern with service flows. There is support for basic mediations, including the ability to log the content of the messages and the ability to start rejecting message requests (for example, filter). In addition to providing the operational management interface, service management delivers the IBM Web Services Navigator that includes an Eclipse-based interface (that can run in IBM Rational® or WebSphere-based Eclipse tooling) for visualization of the services topology, individual message flows, and message content when desired.

In addition, service management:

  • Delivers integration with WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to provide an operational understanding of the registered services in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository versus those that have been observed by service management
  • Sends its situation events to WebSphere Service Registry and Repository for update to the service definition meta data with current performance characteristics

Application management

The application management function provides an enterprise-scale, composite application management solution that is designed to help IT operations and administrators maintain availability of application resources. It can help monitor application performance and availability, and identify and isolate problems. When services problems occur, they can often be related to the application layer of the service and Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 can provide in-depth application level analysis to help speed resolution of services problems that are caused by the application. In addition, it provides a dashboard view that indicates good, fair, and poor performance by application and integrates with TEP to quickly help identify, isolate, and resolve application problems.

A number of advanced capabilities are supported, including:

  • Automated problem identification through customizable workspaces
  • Automated threshold learning
  • Automated take-action situations to help deliver faster time-to-resolution
  • Increased IT operational efficiencies by helping to reduce the time and skill necessary to identify, isolate, and fix problems

Messaging management

The messaging management function helps monitor the status of WebSphere MQ servers, queues, queue managers, channels, and critical performance data related to WebSphere Message Broker. Messaging management provides real-time status on the availability and performance of the messaging environment through best practices monitoring of key business integration components. Administrators are notified of potential problems and can take automated actions to correct them. For example, out-of-the-box messaging management can help identify common business integration problems and automate actions to help implement fixes before problems affect end users. Also available is the collection of monitoring data for use in historical reporting, performance analysis, trend prediction, and enterprise-wide business impact analysis.

Messaging management supports configuring of all WebSphere MQ assets from a central repository that can help you:

  • Verify all configurations prior to deployment
  • Schedule deployment of all WebSphere MQ objects
  • Provide for backup of WebSphere MQ resources

Enhanced reporting through TEP

Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2 bundles IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.2 infrastructure components that enable it to supply TEP with key business performance metrics for enhanced visualization and correlation within new workspaces, as well as with other IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.2 monitored systems. This integration delivers a single GUI through TEP, which is used by many IBM Tivoli monitoring and management products to help discover and investigate problems and take immediate corrective actions.

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 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 System p 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 and UNIX®, and Microsoft Windows and Intel technologies, in order to simplify your licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does not differentiate between non-System z server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to System z and other host servers as well.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions

Client device or client

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, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

Enterprise

An enterprise is a person or single entity and those subsidiaries with more than 50 percent ownership.

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 System z or S/390 server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IFL will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS®, S/390, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems and 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.

The IFL may be dedicated to a single Linux-mode logical partition or it may be shared by multiple Linux-mode logical partitions. Installations should note that the Linux workspace enabled by this facility will not support any of the traditional S/390 operating systems (OS/390®, TPF, VSE, or VM). Only Linux applications or Linux operating in conjunction with the Virtual Image Facility™, an environment that operates within a logical partition or in native S/390 mode and provides the capability to create multiple Linux images, are supported by IBM S/390 IFL.

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 proof of entitlement PoEs, are defined in the LI 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. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore 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 System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  5. Threading, a technique that 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.
  7. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Millions of Service Units (MSUs)

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

For more detailed information about System z 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 (per processor charging under full capacity)

In full capacity charging, PoE 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. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore technology, IBM considers each core to be a physical processor.

  4. Threading, a technique that 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.
  6. When a server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are inactive, four processors are active for the customer.
  7. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices over a network. A PoE must be obtained for each server on which the program or a component of the program is run or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In 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 other 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), 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 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 measurements are processor cores and MSUs. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as servers, users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for your specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. You must obtain a PoE for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program. Whenever the designated measurement is a processor core, not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Passport Advantage

Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, you 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 IBM Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage, the IBM 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 your environment to determine the number of charge units for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determine 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 IBM 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 IBM Tivoli product part number. The sum of these Passport Advantage points determines the Passport Advantage point value of the applicable IBM 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

The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:

  • License and Software Maintenance 12 Months — This is the product authorization with Software Maintenance to the first anniversary date.
  • Annual Software Maintenance Renewal — This is the Software 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.

Pricing example

The following example is provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.

References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit-based, with the exception of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of Value Units required per processor will depend on the processor type. For more information, refer to the Value Unit definition in IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required per processor, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

References to all other non-processor-based metrics do represent the actual number of entitlements required, unless other designated measurements are referenced or unless otherwise specified.

Pricing example for Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform V6.2

The customer's overall core environment includes:

  • Distributed Servers
  • Twenty uniprocessors
  • Sixty-five 2-way servers
  • Twelve 4-way servers
  • One 8-way server
  • One 12-way server with 2 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 uniprocessor IFLs running Linux (also known as "Linux on System z")

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

If pricing products without a Linux on System z offering, you should exclude the z800 server entitlement requirement indicated below.

Composite Application Manager for SOA Platform is based upon the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model. The customer wants to manage the applicable distributed server environment, which requires Value Unit entitlements associated with the following number of processors:

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 (IPLA), IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing: IPLA including the 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.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance:

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures.

This program is licensed under the IPLA, and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provides for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. This program has a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours) as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

LI form number: L-ASIA-7CLT4P

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

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Limited 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. 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 know program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

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 clarification, note that for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and for programs acquired under any of IBM 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 you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer: You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

Volume orders (IVO): No

IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center.

IBM Electronic Services

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.
