Description
Bottom rule

IBM Cognos Real-time Monitoring V10.1, a component of the Cognos Business Intelligence portfolio, helps businesses respond faster with real-time views of relevant information.

Visualize real-time data for intra-day decisions.

Gain a new perspective on your business information by consuming up-to-the-second streaming data. This allows for efficient and informed intra-day or intra-hour decision making.

Access your operational data sources and transactional information as it happens.

Access and monitor these critical sources of business information before the information becomes irrelevant.

Take advantage of live, continuously updating metrics integrated with historical analysis within the same workspace.

Consume your real-time information in-context with your historical information all in one place.

Perform ad-hoc and multidimensional analysis on real-time information without impacting operational system performance.

End users can explore and analyze their real-time information without worrying about slowing down business. At run time, user queries never go back to your critical operation systems. This is done by the automatic incremental maintenance of in-memory data.

Monitor operational thresholds continuously and be alerted when these thresholds are breached even when not tethered to the network.

Set strategic thresholds to ensure your business is performing to your satisfaction. Receive real-time alerts on your mobile device when these thresholds are met or exceeded.

Receive continuous updates of streaming information.

Advanced in-memory streaming database provides immediate response to end-user exploration and analysis.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the webpage below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
  • Express and workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies. The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM express and middleware programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.
