IBM Problem Determination Tools Plug-ins

The IBM Problem Determination Tools plug-ins, when used with an Eclipse-based platform such as CICS Explorer™, help provide easier access through a graphical user interface (GUI) on the workstation to the power of the host IBM Problem Determination Tools -- Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS, Debug Tool for z/OS, and Fault Analyzer for z/OS. Refer to the following web page for more details and links to download the plug-ins:

http://www.ibm.com/software/awdtools/deployment/pdtplugins/

The GUI provides a workstation alternative to the z/OS ISPF interface. With this new interface, existing application developers and system programmers may experience productivity gains over the traditional "green screen" interface. The new interface can also help lower the learning curve for new z/OS developers, making them proficient quicker by providing an Eclipse-based interface to the z/OS tool that is easier and more familiar for new hires to pick up and use.

Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS V11.1

Updates:

  • The IBM Application Performance Analyzer Plug-in for Eclipse, when integrated with Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS and CICS Explorer, encompasses both the Observation Request and Reporting functions, including the R02 screens list, detail views, edit functions, and reports for the observation. The plug-in GUI can be used for submitting new observation requests and for navigating the performance analysis reports generated from observation requests. The plug-in GUI can display and provide functions to multiple components of Application Performance Analyzer at the same time. The major views include:
    • STC View, which lists all active started tasks
    • Observations List View, which lists all observations
    • Observation Detail View, which provides details of an observation
    • Reports List View, which lists all reports for an observation
    • Report View, which displays an individual report
  • The Application Performance Analyzer Plug-in is enhanced to support IMS Multiple Address Space measurements, source program mapping, and to display windows for details of the sample file and the module information, to make it consistent with the ISPF panels.
  • 64-bit support for xplink.
  • 64-bit Java support
  • CICS+ new CICS intercept extractor.
  • New CICS reports are added to report mean and total service times by user, and to report CPU/service time by CICS transaction.
  • New Java reports are added to report the Java heap usage timeline and Java CPU usage by thread.
  • The "Variance Report" feature is improved by providing three new variance reports highlighting the main difference between the CICS, DB2, and IMS "summary reports." Up to 20 measurements can be selected for variance reporting, providing the ability to evaluate the performance of specific jobs over an extended time period.
  • The DB2 CPU/service time reports are enhanced to allow the developer to display the percentage used in place of the mean fields.
  • Support for the natural language and ADABASE from Software AG.
  • Recommendation to the developer that a VSAM reorganization be done when CI and CA splits are present. This is shown in the Application Performance Analyzer S09 report.
  • Support for large block size (greater than 262K).
  • A memory tracking exit that can include data about modules managed via directed load.
  • Permit use of system symbols in SampleHLQ, and allow complete control of sample file naming convention via SampleDSN and DuplicateDSN configuration settings.
  • C/C++ mapping time stamp interval is reduced.
  • An option to load source and then map it to the module (the inverse of usual C/C++).
  • IMS Multiple Address Space Support that groups all IMS MPP region observations under a single parent observation in R02.
  • IMS Multiple Address Space Support for IMSPlex.
  • Support a shared source program mapping dataset list, called the Common Data Store.
  • Support measuring Java jobs running in WebSphere V7.
  • Currency support for DB2 V10.

Debug Tool for z/OS V11.1

Updates:

  • The IBM Debug Tool Plug-in for Eclipse, when integrated with Debug Tool for z/OS and CICS Explorer, debugs z/OS-based load modules running on z/OS, including load modules that run in a subsystem such as CICS, DB2, or IMS. The plug-in GUI interface allows you to access debugging capability similar to that accessed by the host full-screen interface, allowing you to do the following tasks:
    • Set and clear breakpoints at a specific line
    • Set and clear breakpoints for an error or warning-level error that is based on Language Environment® severities
    • Run to a breakpoint
    • Step into a procedure
    • Step over a procedure
    • View variable values and change them as you step through the code
    • View variable values in the context of a larger area of storage
    • View the call stack
  • A new mode of operation, explicit debug mode, is now supported. In this mode, the user identifies the compile units to debug, then Debug Tool loads debug data only for those compile units. This mode can significantly improve debugger performance when it is debugging very large and complex programs. This new mode is an alternative to the standard Debug Tool mode of operation where debug data is automatically loaded for all compile units. It is intended to be used only when debugging large, complex applications that don't perform as well in the standard Debug Tool mode.
  • A new user interface is added to the Terminal Interface Manager (TIM) that helps you create and manage the TEST runtime options data set.
  • The TIM has been enhanced to remove the need for a site to set up a separate TN3270E port or to customize a set of terminal LUs.
  • A GUI interface is added that helps you create and manage the TEST runtime options data set from the workstation.
  • The Debug Tool Language Environment user exit for DB2 (EQADDCXT) now supports debugging of DB2 stored procedures of type SUB invoked using the call_sub function.
  • EQAOPTS commands can now be specified at runtime in addition to the use of a user-generated EQAOPTS load module. This allows individual users to enter EQAOPTS commands at runtime by supplying a data set containing EQAOPTS commands.
  • Support is added for debugging of assembler programs that exploit the latest IBM zEnterprise 196 architecture.
  • Enhanced performance while debugging C and C++ applications.
  • A Popup window, which displays the result of the LIST expression command when the Log window, is not visible.
  • Support for the Enterprise PL/I ADDRDATA built-in function.
  • Support for the Enterprise PL/I V4.1 compiler and its new GONUMBER(SEPARATE) option.
  • For programs compiled with any level of Enterprise PL/I, you can now list a single element of an array of structures. For programs compiled with Enterprise PL/I V4.1, you can list a single element of an array of structures in automonitor or use the L prefix command in the Source window to list a single element of an array of structures.
  • For programs compiled with any level of Enterprise PL/I, you can now change the format in which Debug Tool displays an array. By using the SET LIST BY SUBSCRIPT ON command, you can have Debug Tool display the array as it is stored in memory.
  • A new keyword LABELS is added to the LIST NAMES command where you can list the names of all section and paragraph names in a COBOL program, and the names of all instruction labels in an assembler program.
  • The following breakpoints are enhanced:
    • AT CHANGE and AT LABEL breakpoints are enhanced to allow a user to limit the scope of the breakpoint to a specific compile unit.
    • AT GLOBAL is enhanced to provide an OCCURRENCE option or wild card (*) to stop for any condition raised in the application.
    • The QUERY LOCATION command is enhanced to provide more information when Debug Tool stops for an AT CHANGE breakpoint.
  • Automonitor enhancements:
    • You can change the subscripts of an array directly in the Monitor window.
    • You can delete multiple items from Monitor window at one time.
    • You can use the cursor (in combination with the CLEAR MONITOR command) to indicate which variable to remove from the Monitor window.
  • Automated allocation of the commands, log, preferences, save settings and save breakpoints and monitor specifications files.
  • New functions are included in Debug Tool Utilities to help an application programmer more easily start debugging IMS applications running in BTS.
  • A CICS transaction, DTNP, is provided which issues NEWCOPY or PHASEIN of application programs.
  • Documentation is provided to assist debugging of Language Environment C/C++, COBOL, and PLI programs in the Java JNI environment in z/OS.

Fault Analyzer for z/OS V11.1

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.

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 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.

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. 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.

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 website

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.

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 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.
