IBM Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS V9.1

Printed (static) reports are now available as XML format output in addition to the text and Adobe® Postscript formats previously available. The output data can be used for post processing as desired. The XML output is the same functionally as the output of the other two forms. XML reports can be used for both viewing with an appropriate XML reader or used to capture relevant information from the output.

The recommendations support is enhanced to include general tips and hints to compliment the specific recommendations support previously provided.

Source mapping from the appropriate files to the program has been enhanced to make it easier and more effective for users to map the source to the sample file. In addition, the C/C++ Elf/Dwarf side files are now supported by Application Performance Analyzer when mapping source statements to load modules found in a sample file. Application Performance Analyzer now issues a warning message to the user when the date and time stamp on the load module do not match the source information.

The summary report called S01 has been enhanced to provide more information. It also includes the job name in the title of the report. When you have zIPP or zAPP processors installed, they are reported in the summary report S08 as well as DB2 reports F15 through F19. This provides users with the ability to understand the job use of these two processors. This information can be used to help maximize the use of these processors when installed.

The start-up Observation Session List panel now displays a list of commonly used primary commands at the top of the screen to assist those users new to Application Performance Analyzer. Once you become familiar with the Observation Session List, these commands can be hidden from view by entering the HIDE primary command. They can be redisplayed by entering the SHOW primary command.

When sampling an IMS region, specific IMS transactions can now be sampled, instead of the whole region.

CICS reporting has been enhanced to report terminal ID, and the sample file can select particular terminal ID's or masks of those ID's as sampling criteria.

When scheduling a new measurement, you can now specify wildcards in order to generate measurements for multiple jobs in one request.

The initial display of the sample files in Application Performance Analyzer can now be sorted by list and by date and time. The default is by request number. The command setup permits this modification from the main Application Performance Analyzer screen.

IBM Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1

IBM Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1 replaces all prior versions of both IBM Debug Tool for z/OS and IBM Debug Tool Utilities and Advanced Functions for z/OS. Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1 includes all of the function in the previous separate products as well as the new V9.1 function. Delivering this single comprehensive product provides significantly more function to existing Debug Tool for z/OS customers, and will help simplify ordering and installation. Current licensees of IBM Debug Tool Utilties and Advanced Functions Subscription and Support (5655-J19) are entitled to Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1. That existing 5655-J19 S&S offering is renamed IBM Debug Tool Subscription and Support. Existing Debug Tool for z/OS customers, looking to upgrade, will need to order the improved Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1 (5655-U27). It is recommended that they obtain the IBM Debug Tool Subscription and Support (5655-J19) as well.

  • A utility has been added to Debug Tool that can help users edit JCL to include Debug Tool enablement so that a debug session is started when the modified JCL is submitted for execution.
  • You can now create CICS DTCN debugging profiles that persist across region termination and restart, and after the terminal that was used to create the profile has been disconnected.
  • CICS DTCN users can now identify the program to debug by the data passed to the program through a COMMAREA or container in the current channel when the program is invoked.
  • CICS DTCN users can now invoke Debug Tool at a program boundary for a CICS task that has already started.
  • The Debug Tool user exit EQAUEDAT will now be invoked for C/C++ files created by the DEBUG(FORMAT(DWARF)) compiler option.
  • A recovery routine has been added to handle RACF-compatible security problems when a data set used by a Debug Tool user exit (EQADBCXT, EQADDCXT, EQADICXT) cannot be opened.
  • The processing of the Debug Tool user exits (EQADBCXT, EQADDCXT, EQADICXT) has been enhanced so that you can have different TEST runtime options for different programs.
  • Some messages have been rewritten to improve message text and explanations.
  • The User's Guide has been improved to provide better guidance on how to prepare a program and its environment for debugging.
  • The Customization Guide has been updated to provide better guidance on which customizations tasks to perform.
  • A new command (CALL %FM) has been added so that you can invoke IBM File Manager. This is available only for CICS programs and it requires IBM File Manager for z/OS V9.1.
  • Prefix commands, which you enter through the Source window, have been added to display or monitor the value of a variable. These prefix commands are available only with programs compiled with Enterprise PL/I for z/OS, V3.6, or later, or Enterprise COBOL for z/OS V3, or later.
  • Debug Tool Setup Utility supports accessing and creating Generation Data Group data sets when running in foreground.
  • The WHEN conditional has been added to the AT® ENTRY and AT STATEMENT commands.

  • While running on z/OS V1.8, or later, Debug Tool now provides support for invoking the z/OS XML parser to parse complete XML 1.0 or 1.1 documents in memory. If the document is syntactically valid, the XML is formatted and shown in the Debug Tool log. Otherwise, diagnostic information is provided to help identify the syntax error.
  • Support for AMode(64) assembler and disassembly programs has been enhanced. You can now run debugging functions, like stopping at breakpoints or stepping through a program, in AMode(64) programs, program segments, or both. You can now include AMode(64) addressable data in assembler and disassembly expressions, and display or alter 64-bit addressable storage using the LIST STORAGE, STORAGE, and MEMORY commands.
  • Saving and restoring of monitors has been expanded to allow saving and restoring of LOCAL monitors in addition to the GLOBAL monitors that were previously supported.
  • The following enhancements have been made to improve remote debug mode capabilities:
    • Show data type for variables in a program compiled with Enterprise COBOL for z/OS V3.4, or later, or Enterprise PL/I for z/OS V3.5, or later.
    • A filter to control the display of variables in the statement that was run previously.
    • More commands that were previously available only in full-screen mode are now available in remote debug mode.
  • You can now debug VS COBOL II programs that are compiled with the NOTEST compiler option and linked with a non-Language Environment library in the same manner that OS/VS COBOL programs are debugged. With the introduction of this support, a new term (non-Language Environment COBOL) has been introduced to refer to both OS/VS COBOL programs and these VS COBOL II programs.
  • Enhancements have been made that reduce CPU usage for applications that contain EXEC CICS LINK statements.
  • Enhancements have been made to reduce the amount of storage used by Debug Tool.

IBM File Manager for z/OS V9.1

File Manager base deliverables
  • Supports WebSphere MQ in File Manager CICS and base interfaces, and ISPF
  • Supports DDNAME with AUD in Batch

    Provides support for DDNAME specification of the input data set for BATCH AUD function execution.

  • Supports Assembler Copybook
  • Allocates non-VSAM file from Catalog Services and allows allocation of new VSAM file without model

    The RENAME and ALTER functions and commands, available from 3.4 Catalog services and 3.5 VTOC (which are currently synonymous), will be logically separated, especially for VSAM processing. The new behavior for VSAM RENAME will be to invoke a new panel File Manager FMNPSREN, which will allow only for the CLUSTER name change and adjust the component names accordingly. The behavior for non-VSAM RENAME will be the same as before, that is, existing ALTER panel will be used which allows for dsname change and other smaller alterations.

  • Provides support for DSP/DSM ignore length errors

    File Manager provides support for ignoring record length errors while selecting records with DSP and DSM. The enhancement applies to File Manager/BASE and File Manager/CICS components. In addition, Data Set Edit Batch (DSEB) will be enhanced to allow for similar support.

  • Includes ISPF compatibility (overlay, copy, cut, and paste)

    This enhancement provides an equivalent of the ISPF OVERLAY prefix commands, COLS prefix command, COPY primary command, and CUT and PASTE commands

  • Updates to File Manager BATCH allow initialization of empty datasets

    File Manager is enhanced to provide support for initialization of empty datasets, which are the target of WRITE File Manager External Function invocations with user procedures.

  • DATAHDR/HEADERPG/PAGESIZE and settings in Batch

    File Manager provides enhancements to the DATAHDR and HEADERPG processing.

  • Allows concatenation of unlike datasets, sequential and PDS, especially DSC

    File Manager enhances File Manager processing of concatenated data sets having unlike data set attributes.

  • Batch initiator constraint relief

    File Manager provides an alternative method of invoking File Manager/CICS (and File Manager Rational Developer for System z interface) for those users concerned with batch initiator use. While a separate File Manager address space will still be created per user, it will be created by a running File Manager server and, therefore, not require the submission of a batch job to start each user's File Manager address space.

  • Extended Address Volume support

    File Manager provides for support of Extended Address Volumes. An Extended Address Volume is defined currently to be any (disk) volume that has more than 65,520 cylinders. For volumes that are configured with 65,520 cylinders or less, which is today's largest size, these are defined to be non-Extended Address Volume.

  • Adds TCP/IP Version 6 (IPv6) compliance

    File Manager has been updated to support the IPv6 structure while maintaining its support for the IPv4 structure.

  • Generates mixed case XML from mixed case COBOL data definitions (ADATA support)

    To support mixed case COBOL field names when generating a template using the Enterprise COBOL V4.1, or later compiler that supports the ADATA describing the case of the field.

  • Integrates File Manager with Rational Developer for System z

    The following has been added to support the integration of File Manager with Rational Developer for System z:

    • Template editing capability (File Manager Rational Developer for System z interface specific).
    • Template expression validation ability (File Manager Rational Developer for System z specific).
    • Template edit Offset command support.
    • SAVEAS ability from within editor (File Manager Rational Developer for System z specific).
    • Returning of function output (File Manager Rational Developer for System z specific) option.
    • Data set related functions allocate, delete, rename, alter are added.
  • Supports data set copy support for library members with names consisting of lowercase and unprintable characters

    The File Manager design of the Data Set Copy function will be enhanced to provide support for library members with names consisting of lowercase (both Batch and ISPF) and unprintable characters (full support Batch and partial support in ISPF).

  • Has summary statistics for various batch functions

    If the following functions are coded with a tally literal as described, then the literal will be displayed on the tally report with respective count:

    • CHANGE, CHG_OUT
    • CONTAINS
    • FLD_CO
    • FLD_OUT
    • FLD_TM
    • FLD_TYPE, NCONTAIN
    • OFLD_CO, OVLY_OUT
    • SET_OLEN, TFLD
File Manager/DB2 deliverables
  • DB2: Facilitates the invocation of File Manager/DB2 from within DB2 Admin Tool, and more generally, from any ISPF application.
  • DB2 Admin Tool Launchpad Invocation of File Manager: Facilitates the invocation of File Manager/DB2 from the DB2 Admin Tool Launchpad.
  • DB2 Access from CICS: Enhances both File Manager/DB2 and File Manager/CICS to enable most File Manager/DB2 functions to be run under File Manager/CICS.
  • DB2 browse/view/edit of large tables: Enhances the File Manager/DB2 editor to process large tables without the need to specify a large TSO region size. This applies to browse, view, and edit.
  • Enable File Manager/DB2 Privileges under File Manager/CICS: Enhances the File Manager/DB2 Privileges utility so that it can be accessed from File Manager/CICS.
File Manager/CICS deliverables
  • Debug Tool invocation of File Manager/CICS for Edit/Browse in separate Unit of Work (UOW)
  • Ability to invoke File Manager/CICS via EXEC CICS LINK PROGRAM command.
  • Ability to optionally route File Manager/CICS processing to a separate background task.
File Manager/IMS deliverables
  • Create template for IMS database extract files (includes IMS scrambling support): To build a composite base template derived from one or more IMS templates to describe the extract file produced by the IMS Extract (IXB) function.
  • IMS Batch enhancements
    • Improved batch parameter validation and batch error messages.
    • Batch Edit/Batch Browse
      • Modified the VIEWIMS function to support the specification of the DD name for the data set in which the view is to be saved (providing an alternative to specifying the data set name in the SAVE_DSN parameter).
      • Modified the VIEWIMS, GETIMS, DELIMS, ISRTIMS, REPLIMS, and VIEWPOSN functions to support views with multiple layouts.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of its general availability, when used in accordance with IBM 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.

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM System z IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA) programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each System z IPLA product with Value Unit pricing has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly, Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for you. For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offer additional price benefits. The quantity of each System z IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as entitled license capacity. If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a System z IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to Value Units or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice/vuctool

Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

To determine the required license capacity for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

VU Value Unit

VU Value Unit is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. VU Value Unit entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement, either users or resources, for the given program. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of VU Value Units required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The VU Value Unit entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with VU Value Unit entitlements of another program. To understand these benefits of VU Value Unit licensing, and to determine how many VU Value Units to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

The programs in this announcement all have Value Unit-Based pricing.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The System z IPLA program you select.
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit.
  • The applicable terms.
  • Whether your current mainframes are full capacity or sub-capacity.

VUE001 ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,000 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

         Translation from MSUs to VUE001 Value Units
 
            MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
Base          3     *      5.25         =     15.75
Tier A       42     *       .83         =     34.86
Tier B      130     *       .35         =     45.50
Tier C      140     *       .26         =     36.40
Tier D      685     *       .20         =    137.00
 
Total     1,000                              269.51

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

        Translation from MSUs to VUE007 Value Units
 
            MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
Base          3     *      1.00         =      3.00
Tier A       42     *       .45         =     18.90
Tier B      130     *       .36         =     46.80
Tier C      140     *       .27         =     37.80
Tier D    1,185     *       .20         =    237.00
 
Total     1,500                              343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Special note on Debug Tool for z/OS

IBM Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1 replaces all prior versions of both IBM Debug Tool for z/OS and IBM Debug Tool Utilities and Advanced Functions for z/OS. This single Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1 product includes all of the function in the previous separate products as well as the new V9.1 function. Delivering this single comprehensive product provides significantly more function to existing Debug Tool for z/OS customers, and will help simplify ordering and installation. Current licensees of IBM Debug Tool Utilties and Advanced Functions Subscription and Support (5655-J19) are entitled to Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1. That existing 5655-J19 S&S offering is renamed to IBM Debug Tool Subscription and Support. Existing Debug Tool for z/OS customers looking to upgrade, will need to order the improved Debug Tool for z/OS V9.1 (5655-U27). It is recommended that they obtain the IBM Debug Tool Subscription and Support (5655-J19) as well.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone during normal business hours and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Support (IAAS). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the support services provided in the base support to include technical support via telephone during normal business hours.
  • Entitles customers to future releases and versions at no additional charge. Note that the customer is not entitled to new products.

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will renew automatically annually unless cancelled by the customer.

Single version charging

To elect single version charging, you must notify and identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program, and the machine the programs are operating on.

Customized Offerings

Product deliverables are shipped only via Customized Offerings (for example, CBPDO, ServerPac, SystemPac®).

CBPDO and ServerPac are offered for Internet delivery, where ShopzSeries product ordering is available. Internet delivery of ServerPac may help improve automation and software delivery time. For more details on Internet delivery, refer to the ShopzSeries help information at

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

Media type for this software product is chosen during the Customized Offerings ordering process. Based on your customer environment, it is recommended that the highest possible density tape media is selected. Currently offered media types are:

  • CBPDOs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 3592*
  • ServerPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 3592*
  • SystemPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 3592*

*3592 is highest density media. Selecting 3592 will ship the fewest number of media.

Once a product becomes generally available, it will be included in the next ServerPac and SystemPac monthly update.

Production of software product orders will begin on the planned general availability date.

  • CBPDO shipments will begin one week after general availability.
  • ServerPac shipments will begin two weeks after inclusion in ServerPac.
  • SystemPac shipments will begin four weeks after inclusion in SystemPac due to additional customization, and data input verification.

Sub-capacity terms and conditions

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The System z IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full capacity or sub-capacity

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

           for z/OS V9
Full-capacity mainframes

In cases where full capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution based, z/OS based, full machine based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, visit

http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

Reference based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Sub-capacity mainframes

In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the System z IPLA program executes.

z/OS based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS on the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

Reference based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Full machine based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with full machine based terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The IBM System z Machines Exhibit, Z125-3901, or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

For more information on sub-capacity System z IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement 204-184, dated August 10, 2004.

For additional information for products with reference-based terms, System z IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in the environment the System z IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single or stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. You may have one or more different environments across the enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each System z IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment, the required license capacity of the System z IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  • That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement 198-001, dated January 13, 1998.
  • Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the sysplex.
Sub-capacity eligibility

To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select System z IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be System z (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS operating systems.
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued.
  • All instances of the z/OS operating systems must be running in z/Architecture® (64-bit) mode.

For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the System z Software Pricing Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for System z Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for IBM System z 890 and 800 License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract - Amendment for IBM System z9® and System z Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929). Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous System z IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

IBM Getting Started Sub-capacity Pricing for z/OS IPLA Software applies.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the product's own execution as reported to IBM in accordance with the requirements for reporting sub-capacity utilization for products.

On/Off CoD

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, you must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServertm On/Off Capacity on Demand - Software (Z125-6611) must be signed prior to use.
