Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics V7.1 combines IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere® and IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for J2EE into a single product and includes new and enhanced capabilities. As a combination of the two products, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics V7.1 provides deep diagnostic capabilities for JEE applications. What does "deep diagnostic capabilities" mean? In the case of JEE applications, the most common issues are hung or poor performing applications and memory leaks. IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics will not just alert you to these issues, it will help you determine why they happened, down to the offending method call. It can help identify memory leaks down to the line of code causing the leak. To optimize application performance, a report can be run showing the SQL statements executed over a specified period of time and the execution time for each one, which allows users to identify potential bottlenecks and work with the database administrator to optimize the SQL calls.

Key new features

  • Can launch-in-context to deep diagnostic functions from operational monitoring views
  • Robust WebSphere Virtual Enterprise monitoring
  • Improved ease of installation and configuration

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics V7.1 combines IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere and IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for J2EE into a single product and includes new and enhanced capabilities. As a combination of the two products, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics V7.1 provides deep diagnostic capabilities for JEE applications. Broadly defined, these capabilities could be categorized into three areas that each help to focus in on application performance problems: operational monitoring, transaction analysis, and memory analysis.

Operational monitoring is valuable to IT operations and subject matter experts (SMEs) such as Web and application administrators and developers in determining the health of an application and the environment in which it runs, as well as performing initial troubleshooting and, in some cases, diagnosis. Key metrics include the following, although there are many more available out-of-the-box that can be valuable depending on the particulars of the application.

  • JVM CPU utilization
  • Heap usage
  • Garbage collection
  • Connection pool usage
  • Thread pools
  • JDBC connection statistics

Transaction analysis helps SMEs to quickly determine if an application is hung, and if so, where it's hung. If it's not hung, then detailed transaction profiling can be performed to help identify the bottleneck. In particular, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics V7.1 helps enable you to:

  • View in real time all in-flight JEE transactions, including composite transactions that cross into the CICS® and IMS™ subsystems and perform real-time Java stack traces and thread dumps
  • Evaluate common performance bottlenecks and contributing factors with an automated problem finder to help detect, categorize, and analyze root causes easily
  • Analyze problematic transactions both historically and in real time by drilling down into the details
  • Correlate and profile transactions across multiple subsystems to determine the precise location and root causes of application failures
  • Set alerts to help detect and fix potentially troublesome situations before they affect end users
  • Analyze resource consumption patterns and trends on historical data to plan for future growth
  • Integrate it with IBM Rational Performance Tester to provide live performance data from production directly to the developer desktop enabling operations and development to work closely together to solve production problems without having to re-create them in preproduction environments

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics' memory analysis capabilities facilitate the detection and location of memory leaks to be detected and located using various methods of increasing precision and sophistication including:

  • Memory trend graphing and metric comparison to help optimize JVM memory parameters, as well as detect memory leaks, garbage collection, and lock contention conditions
  • Heap analysis to help pinpoint leaking classes to aid developers in fixing defective code
  • Capture of the line number of code responsible for suspected leaking classes and methods to help establish relationship between referenced objects in the heap and allocating class names

Many companies rely on JEE applications for critical functions, whether it's a customer-facing, revenue generating e-commerce site or a less visible but no less critical internal operation such as claims processing. The cost of downtime of these applications may be tied to revenue lost due to abandoned sales or indirectly due to poor customer satisfaction. Therefore, improving on traditional measures such as Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR) and Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) is even more important in these cases. That is why the capabilities of IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics just described are so valuable to IT personnel.

Operations and support teams can take advantage of IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics integration with the breadth of the Tivoli monitoring portfolio. Because IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics uses the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP) to visualize key performance metrics, operations staff obtains a single-user interface for performance metrics and trends from JEE application servers and other monitored systems, such as messaging middleware, networks, and databases. Data is aggregated, correlated and presented in rich visual formats to help operations spot trends pointing to delays or other symptoms.

Application support, test, and development teams can also use the TEP component of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring progam to gain deep insight into the health of applications. Business workspaces defined in the TEP integrate with other IBM Tivoli monitoring tools to provide an end-to-end view of the front-end, middleware, and back-end processes of end-user applications.

Developers can also take advantage of IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics information within a Rational Performance Tester (RPT) environment. IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics can send low-level application trace data to RPT, which provides application teams with live production intelligence to help quickly access and fix application code, eliminating the need to re-create the problem in a pre-production environment.

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics provides support for many different application server platforms, giving you a consistent way to manage composite applications across WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic and Application Server, JBoss, SAP NetWeaver, Sun Java Enterprise System, and Tomcat environments. Refer to the Hardware and software requirements section in this announcement for the latest information on supported platforms.

Value Unit-based pricing for system z products

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.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing
Bottom rule

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.

For servers with physical or logical (sometimes called virtual) 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.

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 the subsidiaries owned by more than 50 percent.

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, OS/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 PoEs, are defined in the License Information's 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
    http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

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

http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/resources/swprice/

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. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single 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
    http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

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 for the distributed product

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

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

The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:

  • License and Software Subscription and Support 12 Months - This is the product authorization with Software Subscription and Support to the first anniversary date.
  • Software Subscription and Support Annual Renewal - This is the Software Subscription and Support renewal for one anniversary that applies when a customer renews their existing coverage period prior to the anniversary date at which it expires.
  • Software Subscription and Support Reinstatement 12 months - This is for customers who have allowed their Software Subscription and Support to expire, and later wish to reinstate their Software Subscription and Support.
  • Media packs - These are the physical media, such as CD-ROMs, that deliver the product's code.

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics is based upon the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model.

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. 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 core will depend on the processor type. For more information, refer to the Value Unit definition in the IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required per processor core, refer to the Processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

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

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.

Distributed servers

  • 20 uniprocessors
  • 65 2-way servers
  • 12 4-way servers
  • One 8-way server
  • One 12-way server with two 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, which 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. The customer wants to manage the applicable distributed server environment, which requires Value Unit entitlements associated with the following number of processors:

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics for z/OS pricing example (MSU based)

System z server:

  • One 1,500 MSU System z server

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics for z/OS employs value unit slope VUE007 (VUE = Value Unit Exhibit). If the customer has installed 1,500 MSUs, the applicable number of Value Units will be:

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 rounded up to the next integer. So the customer will need to license 344 Value Units in this example. Value Units for non MSU-based S/390 processors:

System                         Value Units/System
 
MP3000 H30                      6
MP3000 H50                      8
MP3000 H70                     12
ESL models                      2

Value Units for IBM 9672 processors are based upon the full capacity of these systems. This is applicable to all System z systems measured on MSU capacity. Information on MSU capacities can be found in the IBM System z Machines Exhibit, Z125-3901.

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 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 (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 an eligible operating system and machine (for example, z/OS running in z/Architecture (64 bit) mode on a System z ((or equivalent) server). server).

On/Off Capacity on Demand (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.

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.
