Buffer file         100 MB by default. S-TAP uses the buffer
                    file to stage data for transmission to the
                    Guardium appliance. The size is controlled
                    by the buffer_file_size configuration file
                    parameter.
 
Java                If CAS is used, Java is required. If Java is
                    not installed on a Windows database server,
                    it will be installed automatically. On a UNIX
                    server, you must obtain and install Java
                    yourself (due to licensing constraints). In
                    either case, installing Java will require a
                    certain amount of disk space. For space
                    requirements or to download Java, see

                    mechanism and its optional Hunter
                    component is used, Perl is required. If it has
                    not been installed previously, you must
                    obtain and install it yourself. For space
                    requirements or to download Perl, see the

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

Prior to customer setup, accurate information of the database environment intended for the InfoSphere Guardium solution is expected, including (but not limited to):

  • Database information such as vendor and version
  • Platform and operating system versions on which the databases are installed
  • Number of CPUs (cores) on these database servers
  • Usage of the database; for example, data warehouse
  • Inclusion of standby database servers

Additionally, audit requirements should also be clearly defined such as audit level and access control requirements.

Packaging

The product code and documentation is provided on CD-ROM and DVD.

Security, auditability, and control

Security

The InfoSphere Guardium solution is installed on a hardened Linux appliance (physical or virtual). Customers do not have root access to the operating system level. All access to the solution is done through control interfaces (CLI or GUI), where users' access to data and various functions is governed by the customer's administrator using a role-based approach. The customer's administrative user can define users, assign roles to these users, and associate these roles with data or specific functions.

Auditability and control

The InfoSphere Guardium solutions keep a full user activity audit trail. Any action is logged and the administrator can create and generate reports and define alerts based on the activity logs.

The InfoSphere Guardium solution contains a built-in workflow automation application that allows users to define audit processes. For each audit process, the user defines the scheduling of the audit process (when should the audit be run, on what interval), the tasks to perform (generate reports, run an assessment test, trigger a classification process, and so on), and the users and roles on who should review, sign, and approve the audit process results.

With Threshold Alerts, users may define a set of thresholds for each report (number of rows, certain values, and so on) and configure an alert to trigger when these thresholds are not met.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Licensee must acquire an entitlement to both Install licenses and Processor Value Unit (PVU) or Resource Value Unit (RVU) licenses, in sufficient amounts to reflect at a minimum the number of installs of the program that Licensee deploys in accordance with the definition of Install in this announcement; and the number of applicable PVUs or RVUs in accordance with the definition of PVU or RVU.

Install

Install is a unit of measure by which some of these programs can be licensed. An Install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each Install of the program.

Processor Value Unit

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which some of these programs can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the number of processors made available to the program and 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

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 (see web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores1 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
1
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.

Resource Value Unit

Resource Value Unit (RVU) is a unit of measure by which some of these programs can be licensed. RVU Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number of units of a specific resource used or managed by the program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of RVUs required for Licensee's environment for the specific resources as specified in the table below. RVU entitlements are specific to the program and the type of resource and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with RVU entitlements of another program or resource. Refer to the program-specific Resource Value Unit table.

Some programs may require licenses for the resources available to and the resources being managed by the program. In that case, the following applies: In addition to the entitlements required for the resources used by the program directly, Licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the resources 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 resources used by the program directly, Licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the resources managed by the program.

The number of Resource Value Units (RVUs) Licensee requires for this program is based on Million Service Units (MSUs) capacity of a machine. For each IPLA program with Resource 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 IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Resource Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full capacity or sub-capacity

Resource Value Unit exhibit VUE007

         MSUs    MSUs    Resource Value

Ordering example

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

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

Translation from MSUs to Resource Value Units
 
                     Resource          Resource
          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 Resource Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Top rule
Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program, and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Volume orders (IVO)

No

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at

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

Yes. For information on usage restrictions, refer to the License Information document that is available for each product on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and Technical Support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under the applicable agreements.
