DB2 Log Analysis Tool for z/OS, V3.2 (5655-T56) is a powerful tool used to support efforts to maintain high availability and complete control over data integrity. It allows you to monitor data changes by automatically building reports of changes that are made to database tables. Version 3.2 includes the following enhancements:

  • Not materializing mass deletes: In previous releases of DB2 Log Analysis Tool, the product materialized all rows involved in a mass delete, regardless of the table space type. This enhancement gives you the choice to materialize the individual rows of a mass delete, as in the past, or to create just a mass deletion statement.
  • New log reading modes: When using Log Analysis Tool, you have several options on how to materialize full row images from the partial row images contained in the DB2 log. This is called Log reading mode, and could be either forced to log-backward, log-forward, or allow the product to determine automatically which method was necessary or best. The new log reading modes are:
    • Combo mode: Running both log-backward and log-forward in the same run: In combo mode, you allow the Log Analysis Tool to determine if a combination of both modes is possible, and, if so, it will run as such.
    • Auto Default Log Backwards: In Auto Default Log Backwards mode, you allow Log Analysis Tool to determine if log-backward mode is possible. That is, no reasons exist that would force log-forward mode. If so, then Log Analysis Tool will choose log-backward mode.
  • HSM recalls: Log Analysis Tool can now issue HSM recalls on certain data sets in an attempt to speed up elapsed times in long running jobs accessing many data sets. The affected data sets are archive logs and image copies. Using this new feature, the product will issue HSM recalls as soon as the data sets are known to be needed. These recalls may speed up elapsed times if the recalls are effective prior to data set usage.
  • SQL flexibility: Sometimes you may find it necessary to run REDO and UNDO SQL on a different set of tables than those referenced in the original SQL. This can now be accomplished using Log Analysis Tool's Fast Apply SQL option.
  • Detail report flexibility: You have the option to specify larger row lengths for the current, post-change, and pre-change data rows in the detail and impact reports. This allows very large rows to display all data on one line instead of spanning multiple lines. In most cases, it will also be possible to display all data for one table on one line. You can decide how long a data row can be, or you can continue using 80 characters per line.
  • SQL order by complete UOW: This feature allows the SQL generated by Log Analysis Tool to be committed and executed in a different order than previously available with REDO and UNDO SQL. The terms REDO and UNDO still apply, but within those terms comes the concept of running SQL by unit of work.
  • Parameters for changing MODEFILE fields: This feature allows you to change certain parameters in the JCL without having to step through the ISPF panels. There are certain parameters that still must be updated using the panels, but those mainly affect the generation of the JCL.
  • Conversion of load file header data to proper CCSID: Log Analysis Tool now converts log record header data in its load file to the same CCSID of the source table in normal load mode. This was done to make all data consistent within the load file and to allow better use of WHERE clauses when querying the loaded table.
  • CHAR data in hex option: Log Analysis Tool may generate SQL that cannot be properly executed because of DB2 translation issues. To avoid these issues, you can now opt to have the product generate character-type fields in hexadecimal format.
  • Dynamic allocation error messages enhanced: Additional information has been added to the dynamic allocation error messages to help you understand what may be causing the error.
  • Informational messages enhanced: Informational messages are often displayed throughout Log Analysis Tool to help the support process proceed more quickly. These messages are for support use only, but many have come to use them to help understand and plan their job schedules. Some of these messages have been changed to be more easily recognized. Most were changed by adding the compile date/time to help quickly identify the latest maintenance applied.

DB2 Recovery Expert for z/OS, V2.2 (5697-N92) provides a simple, self-managing recovery solution that enables database recovery operations with minimal disruption. DB2 Recovery Expert for z/OS enables intelligent analysis of altered, incorrect, or missing database assets, including table spaces, tables, indexes, and data. It automates the process of rebuilding these assets to a specified point in time, often without taking the database or the business operations offline.

DB2 Recovery Expert promotes high availability solutions that companies require for 24 x 7 operations and integrating with storage systems. It performs system-level backups instantaneously and without affecting running applications. Valuable host CPU and I/O time is saved by using the storage processor to make the copy instead of z/OS.

DB2 Recovery Expert:

  • Provides backup and recovery solutions that automate and integrate sophisticated storage processor capabilities to:
    • Back up data instantaneously to a consistent copy of production data without sacrificing availability
    • Reduce CPU and I/O costs by using the storage processor to copy the data instead of z/OS
    • Execute fast replication in a safer and more transparent manner on behalf of the DBA
    • Provide the restore of a database or database objects in parallel with the restoration process to help reduce recovery time and reduce application down time
  • Can be used for:
    • Fast DB2 subsystem recovery from system backups.
    • DB2 subsystem disaster restart. Disaster recovery becomes as simple as restarting from a power failure. This saves CPU, I/O, image copy restoration, and log apply time.
    • Object data recovery from system backups.
  • Supports recovery of dropped objects, including data to a point in time before the drop.
  • Reads and analyzes the DB2 log to find quiet times or points of consistency for single or groups of objects.
  • Can generate SQL-based recoveries to roll forward or back out changes to individual tables or groups of objects. This type of recovery is not supported by standard DB2 recovery tools.
  • Supports recovering an object or application set of objects to a prior version, even if the object's DDL has changed. A recovery can be performed back to a prior version of an application if the need arises.
  • Enables recovery to a point in time, given the object to be recovered, including rolling data changes backward or forward to provide for more efficient recovery.
  • Analyzes all recovery assets and presents several recovery "plans" or methods with an estimated cost for each method, allowing the user to choose an appropriate and cost-efficient method.
  • Performs a partial backup by excluding or including volumes from a backup profile using line commands. I addition, the Restore System display now contains a field that indicates when a backup is a partial backup, and Backup Summary reports also show whether a backup is partial. Partial backups cannot be used for system restores but can be used for restoring objects.

DB2 Recovery Expert V2.2 includes the following enhancements:

  • Provides support through a GUI to restore an entire subsystem to a prior point in time from system-level backups created within DB2 Recovery Expert.
  • Allows for parallel processing of recovery tasks using multiple jobs to help reduce elapsed time when performing a recovery.
  • Coordinates tape usage of recovery jobs to reduce repeated tape mounts and help speed recovery jobs.
  • Leverages a new cost calculation method that uses estimated metrics to help identify more efficient recovery plans.
  • Identifies the primary reason that a recovery method is not supported for a particular object.
  • Provides the option to restore indexes defined as COPY YES from their associated image copies. Restoring an index from an image copy is generally faster than rebuilding it.
  • Optionally creates image copies of COPY YES indexes after the recovery takes place.
  • Allows enhanced control of image copy processing by allowing you to specify up to four image copy dataset masks. Includes additional file attributes such as device type, unit type, quantities, SMS information, tape information, expiration date, and retention period.
  • Includes enhancements to the Log Analysis advisor to filter on additional object types, including object patterns. This can help improve the usability of log-based quiet time analysis, allowing users to find quiet times and points of consistency.
  • Includes a new recoverability health check report that can be run against a system-level backup before doing a System Restore. This report will show objects that will need to be recovered after a System Restore because of a LOG NO utility that was run. It will also show objects that are unrecoverable after a System Restore because a LOG NO utility was run and no valid image copy exists.
  • Automatically determines objects that are not restored properly after a System Restore and produces the JCL necessary to recover/rebuild those objects using image copies.
  • Supports incremental flash copy when executing the DB2 system backup utility. This system backup replaces the prior backup, but only the changed pages are recopied from the source to the target volumes, improving the performance of the backup.
  • Performs mapping of DB2 source volumes to ranges of target volumes automatically (AUTOMAP) to eliminate the need to manually map the source volumes to target volumes during the initial profile creation. It also eliminates the need to update backup profiles when DB2 grows and occupies new volumes. The AUTOMAP feature can be used in conjunction with excluding volumes to create "easy to manage" partial system backups that reduce the amount of disks needed for a system backup.
  • Optionally drives the encryption process provided by either DFSMSdss™ or FDR to encrypt a system backup that is being off-loaded to tape.
  • Automatically includes table spaces that have any RI relationship to the selected table spaces when building recovery JCL from an object profile using the ISPF interface.
  • Takes advantage of the DFSMSdss backup method to create a DB2 system backup. This method offers the following benefits:
    • Creates DB2 system backups without requiring Fast Replication hardware
    • Creates system backups with Fast Replication hardware that does not support FlashCopy® but can be driven by DFSMSdss
  • Includes a new report that shows all the DB2 table spaces and index spaces included in the system backup.
  • Creates image copies for a group of DB2 objects using a system level backup as input. These image copies can be registered in the DB2 system catalog table SYSIBM.SYSCOPY, therefore allowing the copies to be used by any utility that can process DB2 image copies.
  • Provides support for Database Relationship Analyzer (DRA). This replaces support for DB2 Grouper in prior DB2 Recovery Expert releases. DRA allows grouping of DB2 tables based on the following types of relationships:
    • Relationships defined in the DB2 Catalog (such as DB2-defined RI, packages, and triggers)
    • Trace analysis (SQL Trace relationships)
    • Non-enforced RI (user-specified relationships)

    DB2 Recovery Expert V2.2 can generate and execute recovery JCL that includes all members of predefined DRA groups.

  • Creates system backups using EMC virtual devices and Hitachi storage systems. EMC Virtual devices create a system backup without the need for a full backup volume for each DB2 volume. Hitachi support allows users of Hitachi storage arrays to perform system backups and restores using native Hitachi fast replication commands.
  • Generates UNDO or REDO SQL to recover objects that contain XML or LOB columns to selected points in time.
  • Runs an installation verification process (IVP) to validate the DB2 Recovery Expert configuration before the product is used for the first time. You can select the IVP for a GUI only, an ISPF only, or a GUI and ISPF installation.

The DB2 Recovery Expert Help system is built on Eclipse, an award-winning, open source platform for the construction of powerful software development tools and rich desktop applications. Leveraging the Eclipse plug-in framework to integrate technology on the desktop can help save technology providers time and money and allows them to focus their efforts on delivering differentiation and value for their offerings.

IMS Cloning Tool for z/OS, V1.1 (5655-U91) makes it easier to more quickly clone IMS subsystems and refresh databases in order to increase availability and allow you to concentrate on business-critical work. By employing fast copy technology combined with automation and by eliminating manual efforts, this new IMS tool can help support your efforts to increase productivity and reduce production online downtime and the costs associated with cloning an IMS subsystem or refreshing databases.

Modern storage processing systems provide fast data replication and copying services that allow database data to be replicated instantly. IMS Cloning Tool takes advantage of storage processor functions to replicate data on behalf of the database system more quickly. Valuable host CPU and I/O is saved by using the storage processor to make the copy instead of z/OS. IMS Cloning Tool then performs both the volume metadata and IMS metadata management to allow entire IMS subsystems to be cloned or specific IMS databases to be refreshed in just minutes.

The tool automates the cloning process to provide usable IMS clones within minutes, thus boosting efficiency and freeing DBAs from performing time-consuming multi-step tasks.

Using clones with current data helps provide faster resolution of problems encountered with production data. IMS Cloning Tools for z/OS, V1.1 can reduce the time required to create a clone from hours or even days to just minutes.

The result is improved productivity for problem analysts, more efficient IMS application performance, and higher system availability.

New features and enhancements offered with IMS Performance Analyzer for z/OS, V4.2:

  • OMEGAMON® Transaction Recording Facility (TRF): OMEGAMON for IMS TRF collects detailed transaction accounting, performance, and resource utilization information for IMS transactions.

    IMS Performance Analyzer provides comprehensive (form-based) reporting of all the TRF record types, including:

    • Transaction transit analysis and resource usage
    • DLI database and DB2 call analysis, including elapsed time per call
  • IMS Connect enhancements: Form-based transit reporting for the IMS Connect Extensions for z/OS journal is enhanced with the following new features:
    • Send Only with Resume TPIPE end-to-end transaction response time analysis: The two asynchronous components of the transaction are resolved to provide true client response time analysis.
    • Commit mode 0 and 1 client ACK delay: The delays in IMS processing caused by waiting for the client to acknowledge the response.
    • Detailed analysis of Synchronous call-out and ODBM events.
    • Additional client information, including override LTERM, Tmember, and TPIPE names.
    • A new MATCH option for combined IMS log and Connect journal reporting ensures that transactions are only reported when the IMS log and Connect journal overlap to provide complete information.
    • New INFLIGHT option to ensure that transaction information is not lost across an active journal switch.
  • Improved form-based reporting: Form-based transit reporting is enhanced with the following new features:
    • Distributions: Reports the percentage of transactions with a response time less than the required service level.
    • Fast Path transaction support: All types of workloads now integrated into a single report.
    • Database update activity by transaction.
    • External subsystem usage by transaction.
    • Support for the new performance metrics in the type 56FA transaction accounting record: Includes DLI database and DB2 call activity.
    • New information fields, including:
      • Transaction rate per second or minute.
      • Log file DDname provides a "before and after" comparison of performance.
    • Transaction index: Can be used as input for reporting (rather than the original SLDS files), significantly reducing the time to generate reports.
    • Transaction substitution exit: View transaction performance by the application name.
    • Export performance data to DB2: Automatically create and load the tables.
    • More sample forms for common performance analysis tasks.
  • Transaction Index: The Transaction Index, created by IMS Performance Analyzer, contains a record for each IMS transaction, and includes all the cumulative information from the IMS log about that transaction.

    The index can replace the IMS log (SLDS) files as input for form-based reporting, significantly reducing the time and overhead of running IMS Performance Analyzer form-based transit reports. IMS Problem Investigator for z/OS uses the index to perform intelligent problem detection, either on its own or merged with the associated IMS log files, to provide improved levels of problem detection. For example, "Locate all transactions with response time greater than 1 second," then use tracking to drill down.

  • IMS Version 9, 10, and 11 support: Exploits all the new features and instrumentation in the IMS log and monitor:
    • IMS Version 10 - Type 56FA transaction accounting record provides accurate transaction CPU time, DLI call, database I/O, and ESAF usage.
    • IMS Version 11 - Connect synchronous call-out and ODBM.
  • New specialized reporting:
    • Cold start analysis provides a point-in-time snapshot of the in-train activity, answering the following questions in the event of a cold start:
      • What input messages (transactions) are lost?
      • What are the incomplete units-of-work, and what database changes did they make?
    • Gap analysis: Look for periods of time where log records are not being cut, potentially highlighting an external system event that may have caused IMS to slow down.
  • Transit reporting enhancements: The standard Transaction Transit reporting is enhanced to provide:
    • Improved accuracy, by using the form-based log record processing
    • New Analysis report option to report all transactions, not just those that respond back to their originating LTERM
  • Monitor reporting enhancements: Monitor reporting is enhanced to provide Synchronous call-out elapsed time analysis and to measure the impact of sync call-out requests on transaction performance.
  • Internal resource usage enhancements: The internal resource usage report (IRUR) is enhanced to support the new statistics provided by IMS Version 10 and 11:
    • General storage: CSA and SQA usage, IMS region virtual storage usage
    • IMODULE get storage, load, locate, delete request statistics
    • EWLM
    • 64-bit cache storage manager
    • Fast Path 64-bit buffer manager

    In addition, the new MSC link report provides "send and receive" message activity and I/O time analysis.

  • IMS Tools Knowledge Base: Log Report Sets can now offload to the IMS Tools Knowledge Base repository for historical collection and viewing from the IMS Tools KB dialog.
  • Usability enhancements: The following improvements will help make IMS Performance Analyzer for z/OS easier and more reliable to use:

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.

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

Ordering example

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 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.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone 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 Software Maintenance (IAASM). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the support services provided in the base support to include technical support via telephone.
  • Entitles you to future releases and versions, at no additional charge. Note that you are not entitled to new products.

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

The combined effect of the IPLA license and the Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance gives you rights and support services comparable to those under the traditional ICA S/390 and System z license or its equivalent. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the level of support you are used to in the ICA business model, you must order both the license for the program and the support for the selected programs at the same Value Unit quantities.

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, and 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, 35921
  • ServerPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 35921
  • SystemPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, 35921
1
3592 is the 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.

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 (and z/OS.e) 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 System/370™, System/390®, and System z Machine 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 (or z/OS.e) operating systems
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
  • All instances of the z/OS operating (or z/OS.e) 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 eServer 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 eServer zSeries 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.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the utilization of a sub-capacity eligible reference product and machine.

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 eServer On/Off Capacity on Demand - Software (Z125-6611) must be signed prior to use.
