IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE on z/OS, V5.1

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE on z/OS, V5.1 is one of the first releases of the OMEGAMON family that incorporates a new enhanced 3270 user interface to help system programmers speed problem diagnosis by simplifying problem analysis. Using Agile development practices, customer design and feedback, the scenarios (based on interviews with subject matter experts) help troubleshoot and resolve today's performance and availability problems through the use of related data in context to provide an overall integrated view for analysis and repair actions.

The new OMEGAMON provides value in the areas of operating system, z/OS subsystems, installation, and configuration for the subject matter experts and other users.

New enhanced 3270 Sysplex workspace views providing z/OS operating system management capabilities include:

These are just some of the metrics of z/OS, which can be monitored. The solution also provides action capabilities needed to address problems that are detected, minimizing mean time to correction or avoiding costly outages.

Additional capabilities include new improvements for operational control and management of the OMEGAMON portfolio.

Tivoli OMEGAMON V5.1 provides new capabilities for installation and maintenance for system programmers responsible for upgrades and day-to-day operations.

The IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE V5.1 family leverages Tivoli Monitoring V6.2.3 and the new self-describing agent autonomic capability to remove the necessity for using application CDs to manually synchronize management servers and agents.

A new installation methodology, based on Parmgen interactions, is introduced for the OMEGAMON family to provide a faster, more standards-based user interaction for upgrades or new installations.

Both of these infrastructure changes provide for a faster time to value and reduce the support costs to lower your total cost of ownership.

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for CICS, V5.1

IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE on z/OS, V5.1 and IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS, V5.1 are the first releases of the OMEGAMON family that incorporate a new enhanced 3270 user interface that helps system programmers speed analysis by simplifying problem analysis. Using Agile development practices, customer design and feedback, the scenarios (based on interviews with subject matter experts) help troubleshoot and resolve today's performance and availability problems through the use of related data in context to provide an overall integrated view for analysis and repair actions.

Tivoli OMEGAMON V5.1 provides specific values in the areas of operating system, CICS systems, installation, and configuration for the subject matter experts and other users.

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:

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 website

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.

Licensing metric definitions and pricing examples
Bottom rule

Licensing metric definitions

Engine

An engine is also referred to as a central processor (CP) or processor. Engines for traditional workloads are called General Purpose CPs. Engines for Linux™ workloads are called Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines or Linux-only engines. Engines for Coupling Facility workloads are called Integrated Coupling Facility (ICF) engines.

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 OS/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM IFL will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS, OS/390, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems or 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 S/390® traditional 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, is supported by the IBM S/390 IFL

MSU

Millions of Service Units (MSU) is defined as millions of CPU service units per hour; 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/

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 licenses 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 entitlement(s) 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 obtained.

Value Units

A Value Unit (VU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Value Unit entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement, for example MSUs, users, engines, tape drives, for the given software. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of Value Units required for loicensee's environment as specified in the specific program terms. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with other Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Pricing examples

System z software pricing examples (MSU based)

The pricing example below should be used to determine required license entitlements for the following System z software products:

System z server:

1,500 MSU System z server

All products in this example employ Value Unit slope VUE007 (VUE = Value 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/370, System/390® and System z Machine Exhibit, Z125-3901.

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:

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

Program                                       Parent,
number     Program name                       if applicable

5698-T01   IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE on z/OS     z/OS based
5698-T07   IBM XE for OMEGAMON XE for CICS    reference based
           on z/OS V5.1
5698-T06   IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON DE for z/OS    z/OS based
           V5.1
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 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:

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:

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 website

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

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.

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 IBM System z On/Off Capacity on Demand (Z125-7883) must be signed prior to use.

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).

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

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

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.
