DESCRIPTION



IMS/ESA Version 6 Transaction Manager Enhancements

Network Computing Enhancements

IMS Connectors: The IMS Connectors consist of four recently made available solutions, plus a new object solution, which provide connectivity from the Web to transactions and data in IMS. These solutions allow a customer to match their communications infrastructures, used with IMS, to their Web server configuration. The IMS WWW Templates contain templates for providing Web access to IMS TM that accept APPC connections. The IMS Web uses a TCP/IP communication infrastructure and middle-tier Web servers to make IMS transactions available on the Web. The IMS TCP/IP OTMA Connection provides enhanced communication linkages between remote workstations and IMS. The IMS Client for Java (TM) provides code for preparing a Java program to access IMS applications and data running in a S/390. These solutions are now all generally available and downloadable free from the Internet, accessible through the IBM Connectors home page at:

Or the IMS home page at: Additional enhancements are planned to be provided for these connectors throughout the rest of 1997. In addition, a new IMS Object Connector is also planned to be provided for object access to IMS data.

Distributed Synchpoint: This function allows IMS application programs to participate with remote application programs in a distributed two-phase commit. This IMS support, along with APPC/MVS and ACF/VTAM (R), provides coordinated file update for APPC conversations. Alternatively, with this IMS support, along with OS/390 V2R4 Transactional Remote Procedure Calls (TRPC) and through the Service process, IMS can participate in DCE-based distributed transaction processing. Changes to OS/390 Application Support IMS to support TRPCs through the OS/390 Encina Toolkit and IMS, allow clients who use the Encina TRPC protocols to participate with IMS applications in a distributed transaction process. This allows IMS customers to implement fully-distributed data bases and transaction processing. It also allows them to take advantage of existing applications, data, and skills, and enables improved integrity for open, distributed, network computing.

Security Enhancement: This enhancement offers IMS customers the ability to secure Program Status Blocks (PSBs) using SAF (System Authorization Facility), which acts as a router to RACF (TM) or an installation-supplied processing routine. This enhancement offers this ability for any PSB specified on an Allocate PSB (APSB) in an APPC Common Programming Interface for Communications (CPIC)-driven application. This enhancement helps to control application security in a distributed environment.

Performance/Capacity Enhancements

Shared Message Queues: The IMS Shared Message Queue (SMQ) solution allows IMS customers to take advantage of the Coupling Facility to store and share the IMS message queues among multiple IMS TM systems. Incoming messages from an IMS TM on one Central Processor Complex (CPC) in the sysplex could be placed on a shared queue in the Coupling Facility by the IMS Common Queue Server (CQS) for processing by an IMS TM on another CPC in the sysplex. This can provide increased capacity and availability for their IMS systems. This SMQ solution takes advantage of the MVS function Cross System Extended Services (R) (XES) to access the Coupling Facility, and the Automatic Restart Manager (ARM) to improve availability by automatically restarting the components in place or on another CPC. With shared queues, a message can be processed by any IMS sharing the queues. This can result in automatic workload distribution as the messages can be processed by whichever IMS subsystem has the capacity to handle the message. The MVS Workload Manager (WLM) can be used to classify the incoming messages and can be relied upon to help control the assignment of MVS resources, as it does today for IMS. An IMS customer can use shared queues to distribute work in the sysplex. In a shared queues environment, all transaction-related messages and message switches are put out on shared queues, which permits immediate access by all the IMSs in a shared queues group. This provides an alternative to IMS transfer of messages across MSC links within a shared-queues group. The IMS SMQ solution allows IMS customers to take advantage of the sysplex environment, enabling increased capacity and incremental horizontal growth.

Fast Path Shared Expedited Message Handler (EMH): This provides the capability to process Fast Path transactions in a sysplex environment using the Coupling Facility. This enables workload balancing of Fast Path transactions in a sysplex environment and hence can provide increased capacity. This capability can also improve the system and data availability to the end user since multiple IMS subsystems can have access to the shared EMH queues in the coupling facility. This enables increased throughput in Fast Path Message Processing.

Increased System Identifiers: This permits expanding the number above the current limit of 255 to 2036 for IMS System Identifiers, and to 676 for Multiple Systems Coupling (MSC) physical links and logical links. This allows more systems to be defined in the MSC environments. It can also allow more IMS system IDs to be used for transactions and message queues in any one IMS.

RACF/Signon Performance Enhancement: This enhancement allows users to customize their system to achieve maximum parallelism during RACF/Signon. This can reduce the time required for security validation during signon and speeds the signon process.

Continuous Availability

Daylight Savings Time: Continuous Availability of the system is provided by the ability to keep the IMS system up regardless of changes to local time, thus eliminating two planned shutdowns per year at the beginning and end of Daylight Savings Time, improving the continuous availability of the system. These shutdowns were previously required to avoid having overlapping time stamps in the database recovery control information, and to keep the IMS clock in synchronization with the MVS clock.

ETO Enhancements: Enhancements are provided to the automatic signoff and logoff timeout facility of the Extended Terminal Option (ETO) feature for continuous operations. ETO provides the ability to dynamically bring in new terminals to the network without bringing the system down for a new system generation, thus providing more continuous operations. These new enhancements provide improved migration capability from static to ETO terminals. This function can also provide improved availability for network-shared terminals, such as printers, and other output-only devices.

Systems Management

Enhanced Dynamic Routing with VTAM (R) Generic Resources: Support is provided for VTAM Generic resources to allow session load balancing across multiple IMS Transaction Managers. It provides a single system image for the end user. It allows the end user to logon to a generic IMS Transaction Manager name and VTAM to perform session load balancing by establishing the session with one of the registered IMS TMs. This provides for easy end-user interaction and improves IMS availability. It also improves systems management with enhanced dynamic routing and session balancing.

Generic Start Region: In the sysplex environment, there can be multiple executions of the IMS subsystem with any combination of dependent regions in each subsystem. To help manage these IMS subsystems and their dependent regions, dependent regions can now be started from a single member of a procedure library (PROCLIB). When started, each dependent region can connect to the correct subsystem. This support enhances systems management and improves ease of operation.

Sysplex Communications: This function enables commands to be entered to all IMS system types from Multiple Console Support (MCS) or Extended-MCS consoles. The command text is preceded by a command recognition character or by an IMSID. The MVS route command can be used to target multiple MVS systems for a single command entry. This support eliminates the need to enter commands to each IMS system, providing improved ease of operations.

Dates Beyond 1999 Expanded Year Format: This extends the capability to test and execute IMS application programs which can deal with a date beyond 1999. The year which is presented to the application, currently with only two digits, is available in four-digit format to satisfy those application and systems programs that use comparisons of the date in their operations.

Message Exit Enhancement: This enhancement offers IMS customers the ability to tell IMS how to handle the input message associated with an abended application program. This provides IMS customers a way of retrieving messages that otherwise might have been lost.

Dump Analysis and Evaluation Enhancements: This provides assistance to IMS customers in understanding problems that they may be having through improved dump analysis and evaluation facilities. These facilities simplify the dumps, making it easier to diagnose problems.

Sysgen Enhancements: Enhancements are provided in the system generation (sysgen) process to eliminate all conditionally-assembled modules. This can reduce time and effort required in the sysgen process.

Packaging Enhancements: Enhancements are provided to reduce the time, effort, and cost associated with the installation of IMS by reducing the number of individual features and installable entities (FMIDs). These enhancements simplify ordering and ease maintenance with fewer entities and unique PTFs to install.



IMS/ESA Version 6 Database Manager Enhancements

Network Computing Enhancements

Open Database Access Facility: The Open Database Access (ODBA) facility, being made available through the service process, allows improved access from OS/390 applications to IMS DB subsystems using DL/I calls. These OS/390 applications could include, for example, DB2 Stored Procedures, OS/390 Web Server applications, APPC/MVS Transaction Programs and/or batch programs.

IMS Object Connector: The IMS Object Connector, at availability, provides a new, easier way to access IMS DB data. This solution begins Beta on December 31, 1997, and is downloadable free from the Internet, accessible through the IMS home page at:

The IMS Object Connector deploys new OO application programs to access IMS DB data. The OO applications are either IMS DB batch or IMS TM applications. These applications can also be invoked from an Internet web browser. The IMS Object Connector generates C++ classes which wrap IMS DB segments. With its runtime support, OO application programs can access IMS DB data through these generated classes. This offers improved application programmer productivity by supporting OO programming, eliminating DL/I coding, and supporting the use of OO programming tools.

Continuous Availability

Fast Path Data Entry Database (DEDB) Online Change: This provides non-disruptive online change capability for the IMS Fast Path Data Entry Databases (DEDB). IMS customers are able to add, change, or delete a DEDB database as well as a DEDB area. Support is also provided for changing the randomizers, segment compression routines, and Data Capture exit routines. All these changes can take place without the need for a planned outage, thus providing for more continuous availability.

Daylight Savings Time: This provides the ability to keep the IMS system up regardless of changes to local time, thus eliminating two planned shutdowns per year at the beginning and end of Daylight Savings Time, improving the continuous availability of the system. These shutdowns were previously required to avoid having overlapping time stamps in the database recovery control information, and to keep the IMS clock in synchronization with the MVS clock.

Fast Database Recovery: The Fast DB Recovery function provides improved recovery speed for an N-way datasharing environment. If a system in a sysplex should encounter a problem, DB resources held by that system are made available to the remaining IMS systems with a function which recovers the databases and releases locks held by the failing system. This permits the systems in the sysplex to continue processing quickly and increases the availability of the sysplex.

VSAM Control Interval Reclaim: This provides asynchronous space reclamation of leftover empty Control Intervals (CI) after erases (deletes) are committed for VSAM Keyed Sequence Data Sets (KSDS). This enhances the performance by doing database inserts after mass deletes have been done. This also enhances availability as the database does not have to be taken offline for reorganization to reclaim the empty space.

Performance/Capacity Enhancements

8GB DB Support: Support is being provided to extend the Full Function database size to 8 Gigabytes for even-length blocksize OSAM databases. This allows increased capacity and growth of IMS Full Function databases. This support is also available for IMS/ESA V5R1 through the service process.

Data Sharing Enhancements: Support is provided to utilize the Coupling Facility for store through caching (storing changes) and store clean data (storing unaltered data) for OSAM databases. In addition, support is provided for block-level data sharing of IMS Fast Path Data Entry Data Base (DEDB) Virtual Storage Option (VSO) databases, using the Coupling Facility, and Sequential Dependent Segments (SDEPS). These provide for improved workload balancing and offer increased capacity and growth in moving into Parallel Sysplex environments.

DBRC Performance/Parallelism Enhancements: This item improves performance and parallelism in the Database Recovery Control (DBRC) Facility. IMS customers who may, or could potentially, be experiencing degradation due to read/write activity on the DBRC Recovery Control (RECON) data set, particularly in a data-sharing environment, are provided with improvements. This can allow for flexibility in moving to N-way data-sharing and share-queues environments, and thereby allowing continued growth.

VSCR Enhancements and Increased Number of Devices Supported: IMS Unit Control Block (UCB) Virtual Storage Constraint Relief (VSCR) support is provided for the MVS/ESA SP (TM) UCB VSCR enhancement. As system CPU power grows, the number of I/O devices needed to support this MIPS increase grows as well. In addition, in an HPCS environment, the number of devices defined to each system grows not only due to this MIPS affect, but also due to the need to define a single I/O configuration in the sysplex and due to multiple systems sharing the same data. MVS/ESA SP Version 5 Release 2 and DFSMS/MVS (R) Version 1 Release 3 have raised the 4096 device number or UCB limit to 65,536. IMS V6, along with MVS/ESA SP 5.2 and DFSMS/MVS 1.3, now allows slightly less than 10,000 Fast Path Area datasets and slightly less than 8,183 Full Function database data sets to be concurrently open when running with LSO=S (DL/I as a Separate Address Space), the normal configuration. If the IMS/ESA V6 system is configured using LSO=Y, then a total of slightly less than 10,000 Fast Path Area data sets and Full Function database data sets can be open concurrently, with the number of Full Function database data sets being limited to slightly less than 8,183. Additional VSCR support is also being provided. The UCB VSCR enhancement provides relief for virtual storage problems by allowing the UCB to be defined in 31-bit storage above the 16 MB line. A number of additional modules in IMS have been changed to use 31-bit Common Storage Area (CSA), rather than 24-bit CSA. This VSCR enhancement provides improved system capacity and permits increased growth.

GSAM Support of DFSMS (TM) Extended Format Data Sets: GSAM support is provided here for DFSMS extended format sequential datasets on DASD. Through this support, IMS customers can take advantage of the following functions: Up to 16-way striping, available in DFSMS/MVS, improves write throughput and facilitates the DFSMS management of GSAM datasets by allowing for the restartability of migrated datasets. Host-based compression using generic dictionary building blocks supported in DFSMS/MVS reduces the space used on DASD. Dictionaries tailored for data sets available in DFSMS/MVS further improves the compression ratios.

DBCTL Single Cycle Commit: This can provide performance improvement for a transaction manager using the interface to the Database Control Facility (DBCTL), where the single resource modified for the unit of work is owned by DBCTL.

Systems Management

Dates Beyond 1999 Expanded Year Format: This extends the capability to test and execute IMS application programs which can deal with a date beyond 1999. The year, which is presented to the application, currently with only two digits, is available in four-digit format to satisfy those application and systems programs that use comparisons of the date in their operations.

DFSMS Concurrent Copy Support: This provides an integrated solution for taking database image copies using the 3990 Concurrent Copy feature. A new image copy utility is provided that invokes the DFSMS Concurrent copy function to copy an IMS database data set that resides on DASD subsystems that support Concurrent Copy and automatically record the image copy in the RECON data set. Support is provided in the IMS Database Image Copy 2 utility. Database availability is enhanced by the fact that "clean" image copies (taken while the database is not being updated) can be taken with minimal database outage. The time that a data set must be unavailable for update processing will usually be a matter of a few seconds or less. Another key benefit is that "fuzzy" image copies (taken while the database is being updated) of KSDS data sets are supported. Up to four copies of a database data set can be created in one execution of the utility; the first two copies are recorded in the RECON while the additional copies may be desired used for disaster recovery purposes.

Sysgen Enhancements: Enhancements are provided in the system generation (sysgen) process to eliminate all conditionally-assembled modules. This reduces time and effort required in the sysgen process.

Dump Analysis and Evaluation Enhancements: This provides assistance to IMS customers in understanding problems that they may be having through improved dump analysis and evaluation facilities. These facilities simplify the dumps to make it easier to diagnose problems.

Packaging Enhancements: Enhancements are provided to reduce the time, effort, and cost associated with the installation of IMS by reducing the number of individual features and installable entities (FMIDs). The Surveyor feature is included with the IMS DB feature. These enhancements simplify ordering and ease maintenance with fewer entities and unique PTFs to install.



Year 2000

This product is Year 2000 Ready. When used in accordance with its associated documentation, it is capable of correctly processing, providing, and/or receiving date data within and between the 20th and 21st centuries, provided all other products (for example, software, hardware, and firmware) used with the product properly exchange date data with it.



PRODUCT POSITIONING

IMS/ESA has continued to be enhanced to keep pace with the changing needs of IMS customers and to take advantage of new technologies that will meet customers' needs for business solutions.

IBM demonstrates its commitment IMS/ESA and supporting products and tools by making significant investments in their development and support. These continue to be enhanced with significant new function and with additional family members to provide our customers with strategic solutions for integrity, availability, rapid response, systems management, high-volume transactions, and open distributed network computing.

IMS versions prior to IMS Version 5 do not support the Year 2000. Both IMS V5 and V6 are Year 2000 ready and are planned to remain in service across the Year 2000. Customers using IMS versions prior to IMS Version 5 should consider migration to IMS Version 5 or IMS Version 6 as soon as possible. This will require customers using Local DL/I to migrate to DBCTL. This will also require customers using the IMS LU 6.1 Adapter for LU6.2 Applications to migrate to APPC/IMS. IMS Version Migration Services are available from IBM Global Services.

In addition, assistance is available to help implement some of these solutions. For more information on this and other IMS-related services, contact the Dallas Systems Center at 817-962-6206.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION



ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

IMS (TM) Connectors: The IMS Connectors consist of four recently made available solutions, plus a new object solution, which provide connectivity from the Web to transactions and data in IMS. These solutions allow a customer to match their communications infrastructures, used with IMS, to their Web server configuration. The IMS WWW Templates contain templates for providing Web access to IMS TM that accept APPC connections. The IMS Web uses a TCP/IP communication infrastructure and middle-tier Web servers to make IMS transactions available on the Web. The IMS TCP/IP OTMA Connection provides enhanced communication linkages between remote workstations and IMS. The IMS Client for Java (TM) provides code for preparing a Java program to access IMS applications and data running in a S/390 (R). These solutions are now all generally available and downloadable free from the Internet, accessible through the IBM Connectors home page at:

Or the IMS home page at: Additional enhancements are being provided for these connectors throughout the rest of 1997 as indicated below. In addition, a new IMS Object Connector is also being provided for object access to IMS data.
  • The IMS WWW Templates

    IMS WWW Templates contain templates for providing Web access to IMS programs that accept APPC connections. The templates are invoked from the Web server on any APPC platform (such as S/390, OS/2 (R), Windows (R), AIX (R), Sun Solaris, or OS/400 (R)) and provide the conversion between URL and HTTP information and APPC protocols.

    Additional Enhancement now available include:

    • Extended template language for MFS-based transactions. The HTML page template language is also available for defining IMS input and output.

    • Additional definition language capabilities. 3270 attributes are also supported.

    • Two-dimensional arrays are supported for template data.

    • Conversational IMS transactions are supported for ICAPI programs. Multiple IMS transactions (or multiple output pages from one or more transactions) are accessible from a single HTML page. This allows consolidating data for Web presentation, or implementing compound transactions in the ICAPI or CGI program (appearing as a single transaction to the Web browser).
    For use in an OS/390 (TM) environment, these are also available along with a number of other samples and tools, through the OS/390 BonusPakII, and through its home page at:
  • IMS TCP/IP OTMA Connection

    The IMS TCP/IP OTMA Connection (ITOC) provides enhanced communication linkages between remote workstations and IMS using the IMS V5 Open Transaction Manager Access (OTMA) facility. It provides improved performance and access for users of TCP/IP in accessing IMS applications and data. It supports multiple TCP/IP clients accessing multiple IMS systems. ITOC provides access from TCP/IP-supported environments into IMS on a S/390 platform.

    Additional enhancements for planned availability on December 31, 1997, with IMS ITOC V2, include Java classes which can be used to interface with IMS, making IMS access simpler to use in a Java environment. These classes take messages from a Java client and send an OTMA message to the host IMS via TCP/IP and return output to the Java application.

  • IMS Web

    IMS Web uses TCP/IP communication infrastructure and middle-tier Web servers to make IMS transactions available to the Web. With IMS Web, developers can dynamically build transaction-specific connectors to the Web for a variety of environments with access to IMS applications and data in a S/390 environment. The IMS Web provides a preparatory tool, as well as run-time environment code, and uses the IMS TCP/IP OTMA Connection for IMS access from the server.

    Additional enhancements now available with IMS Web V1.2 include:

    • Net.Data (TM) Support

      This provides the capability to generate the Net.Data Web macro. With this generated macro, a user can then run IMS transactions from a Net.Data environment.

    • OS/390 and ICS Support

      This provides the OS/390 runtime components and the ability to generate the files and access IMS from the S/390 Internet Server environment.

    Additional enhancements for planned availability on December 31, 1997, with IMS Web V2.1 include:
    • Conversational Support

      This supports IMS conversational transactions on the Web from TCP/IP environments, allowing the end user to retain message continuity from a given device.

    • Security Enhancements

      These allow an IMS Web client to dynamically pass the groupname and userid to the IMS TCP/IP OTMA Connection.

  • IMS Client for Java

    IMS Client for Java provides templates for preparing a Java program to access IMS applications and data, running in a S/390. It also includes a user exit to translate the message into the format required for access to IMS through the IMS TCP/IP/OTMA connection. It can be used from any Java Virtual Machine environment (for example, OS/390, Windows, AIX, OS/2, Sun Solaris, or OS/400). The Java application accesses IMS applications and provides the information back to the Java machine.

    Additional enhancements for planned availability on December 31, 1997, include support for IMS conversational transactions, allowing the end user to retain message continuity from a given device.

  • IMS Object Connector

    The IMS Object Connector, at availability, provides a new, easier way to access IMS DB data. This solution begins Beta on December 31, 1997, and is downloadable free from the Internet, accessible through the IMS home page at:

    The IMS Object Connector deploys new OO application programs to access IMS DB data. The OO applications are either IMS DB batch or IMS TM applications. These applications can also be invoked from an Internet Web browser. The IMS Object Connector generates C++ classes which wrap IMS DB segments. With its runtime support, OO application programs can access IMS DB data through these generated classes. This offers improved application programmer productivity by supporting OO programming, eliminating DL/I coding, and supporting the use of OO programming tools.

  • IMS Version 6 TM may be connected via subsystem routing communications to DB2 (R) Version 2 Release 3 (5665-DB2) and/or DB2 Version 3 Release 1 (5685-DB2) and/or DB2 Version 4 Release 1 (5695-DB2)
  • IMS Version 6 DB may be connected through DBCTL to CICS (R) Transaction Server for OS/390 Version 1 (5655-147), CICS/ESA (R) Version 4 (5655-018), and/or CICS/ESA Version 3 (5685-083).
  • IMS Version 6 TM may be connected via Intersystem Communications (ISC) to the following: IMS Version 6 (5655-158), Version 5 (5695-176), Version 4 (5685-012, 5685-013), CICS Transaction Server for OS/390 Version 1 (5655-147) CICS/ESA Version 4 (5655-018), Version 3 (5685-083), CICS/VSE (R) Version 2 (5686-026), and/or User Written Software.
  • IMS Version 6 TM may be connected via MSC to IMS Version 4, Version 5 and/or Version 6.
IMS Version 6 is written in High Level Assembler and PL/X.

Compatibility: IMS Version 6 is upwardly compatible from previous versions/releases, allowing existing applications and data to be used without change. Migration/Coexistence support is provided for IMS Version 4 and Version 5 with Version 6.

Effective December 31, 1997, IBM will withdraw IMS/ESA V4 (5685-012, 5685-013) from marketing, and effective December 31, 1998, IBM will discontinue service for IMS/ESA V4. In addition, IMS versions prior to IMS Version 5 do not support the Year 2000. Both IMS V5 and V6 are Year 2000 ready and are planned to remain in service across the Year 2000. Customers using IMS versions prior to IMS Version 5 should consider migrating to IMS Version 5 or IMS Version 6.

IMS Version 4 Database Manager was the last release to support CICS Local DL/I. CICS Local DL/I customers should migrate to use the IMS/ESA DB Control (DBCTL) facility. Recognizing that some customers running Local DL/I may not be able to migrate to DBCTL and to IMS Version 5 or 6 before the Year 2000, as an accommodation, IBM is working on an interim migration step, a limited PRPQ offering, with controlled availability and limited support, which when installed, will allow customers to continue to use Local DL/I into the Year 2000. This PRPQ is planned to be an intermediate migration step for Local DL/I customers planning to migrate to Version 5 or 6. Managed availability is planned for March 31, 1998.

IMS Version 4 Transaction Manager was the last release to support the IMS LU6.1 Adapter for LU6.2 Applications. Customers currently using the adapter should migrate to use the APPC/IMS facility.

IMS Version 5 was the last release to support Assembler H. Customers currently using the Assembler H should migrate to use the High Level Assembler/MVS product (5696-234).

IMS Version 5 was the last release to support IMS Client Server Object Manager (CSobject). Customers currently using IMS CSobject support should migrate to use the IMS Object Connector.

IMS Version 5 was the last release for which VTAM was optional for IMS TM. In IMS Version 6, VTAM will be required for service changes.

IMS Version 5 was also the last release to support:

  • The RECOVCTL option in DBRC

  • LINEGRP UNITYPE = 1050, 2260, 2265, 2770, 2980, 3741, 7770, and TWX

    Note: UNITYPE=TWX continue to be supported through the current VTAM and IMS NTO definitions.

  • MSPLINK TYPE = BSC

  • TYPE UNITYPE = SLUTYPE4
RSR is the IMS strategic solution to customer remote-site recovery requirements. Since IBM's Remote Recovery Data Facility (RRDF (TM)) has been withdrawn from marketing, IMS customers using RRDF may wish to consider migrating to RSR.

IMS Version 6 includes IRLM Version 2 only, whereas IMS Version 4 and Version 5 include both IRLM Version 1 Release 5 and Version 2. Both IRLM versions provide shared update support for FP and Full Function IMS databases for IMS Version 4, Version 5, and Version 6. All IMS systems sharing a database must be using the same version of IRLM. For the number of MVS systems sharing a database to be greater than 2, all IMS systems must be on IMS Version 5 or later with IRLM Version 2 and the Coupling Facility.

IMS Version 6 OSAM buffer caching in the Coupling Facility requires all IMS systems in the sysplex be on IMS Version 6.

Performance Considerations: IMS Version 6 provides the opportunity for increased throughput capacity in a S/390 Parallel Sysplex (TM) with shared databases (first supported in IMS Version 5).

All IMS messages arriving at the sysplex can now be placed in a common queue, stored in a central coupling facility, and retrieved for processing by any participating IMS. This shared queue design provides automatic load balancing across the sysplex, so that overall throughput can take advantage of the full capability of the sysplex. Shared queues are available for both IMS Full Function and Fast Path messages.

Load balancing is further extended by IMS Version 6 support for VTAM generic resources. IMS systems in a parallel sysplex can now be represented to the network by a single name, with VTAM sessions transparently distributed across the sysplex to achieve the best available balance of sessions.

Parallel processing is further extended by removing previous restrictions on shared Fast Path DEDBs. DEDB VSO areas (introduced in IMS Version 5) and DEDBs with sequential dependent segments (SDEPS) will be eligible in IMS Version 6 for block-level data sharing. Therefore, DEDBs can now freely participate in parallel sysplex configurations, and combine VSO and SDEP performance with the benefits of parallelism.

In a parallel sysplex, IMS V6 allows OSAM database buffers to be selectively cached in a central coupling facility.

Also, in a parallel sysplex, IMS Version 6 Fast Database Recovery reduces outage delays by immediately recovering inflight shared databases when a failure occurs, and releasing retained locks quickly so that other participating IMSs can continue transaction processing as soon as possible.

Users can now take advantage of DFSMS Concurrent Copy, with transparent DBRC support (equivalent to previous IMS image copy processing) eliminating the need for user interaction.

One-Time Charge: Customers who pay a one-time charge for a licensed program receive enhancements and future releases, if any, at no additional charge. Significant new function may be offered as an optional feature and charged for separately. If a replacement program is announced and the customer elects to license the replacement program, a time-based upgrade credit may apply.

Variable Charges: The applicable graduated one-time charge or graduated monthly license charge will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the licensed program is licensed for use. If the program is designated to a processor in a group for which no charge is listed above, the charge of the next higher group listed applies.

For upgrades of one-time charge licenses to a machine in a higher group, the upgrade charge will be the difference in the then current charges between the two groups. For downgrades of one-time charge licenses to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of one-time license charges paid.

For upgrades or downgrades of monthly license charge licenses, the monthly license charge applicable to the higher or lower group will apply.

Entry Support License One-Time Charge: One-time charge authorizes use only on IBM Entry End User/390 Machines.
