Several separate products provide targeted functionality yet are integrated with each other to provide a continuous workflow.

InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager offerings are designed for those individuals responsible for the overall performance of their DB2 for Linux , UNIX , and Windows data servers, typically a DBA or an application owner. It provides 24x7 monitoring of the application database and alerts users to potential problems so that they can be resolved before impacting the business.

InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager provides drill down from alerts to diagnostic detail for determining whether the source of the problem is CPU, I/O, memory, workload, SQL, or another area. Integration with InfoSphere Optim Query Workload Tuner enables seamless analysis of query workloads and recommends resolutions to improve performance. InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager also enables users to collect, prune, and retain historical information facilitating problem determination, trend analysis, and capacity planning.

Historical information lets users go back in time and see how a problem arose, mitigate problems first, and do causal analysis later, or compare current values to earlier time periods. It also helps staff be proactive about query tuning to optimize resource utilization and to plan for growth.

IBM InfoSphere Optim Query Workload Tuner

IBM InfoSphere Optim Query Workload Tuner facilitates query and query workload analysis and provides expert recommendations for improving query and query workload performance. Use InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager to identify slow running queries, top CPU consumers, or query workloads needing performance improvements and seamlessly transfer them to InfoSphere Optim Query Workload Tuner for analysis and recommendations.

Query Workload Tuner facilitates query analysis using query formatting annotated with relevant statistics, access plan graphical or hierarchical views, and access plan analysis. It further provides recommendations for improving query structure, statistics collection, and indexes including generated command syntax and rationale for the recommendations.

IBM Data Studio

IBM Data Studio provides database development and administration tooling for DB2 and other databases at no charge. When performance problems indicate a need for database configuration changes, Data Studio may be used to make configuration changes, object changes, create and schedule command scripts, and more.

When using Data Studio for query development, developers can use the InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager integration to see the actual performance improvements across iterations of query executions. Data Studio also includes a taste of the Query Tuner capabilities by providing integrated query transfer from InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager, query formatting, access plan visualization, and statistics advice for a single query.

Data Studio also offers health monitoring for DB2 for Linux , UNIX , and Windows databases, a very small subset of InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager capabilities. Health monitoring is focused on assuring that applications are not blocked from running due to the state of the database, for example, a database is down, a tablespace is about to run out of storage, or other similar states. Providing a simple deployment, browser-based UI, and contextual launching from within the Data Studio eclipse clients, it is useful for monitoring development databases or providing an easy-to-use interface to IT staff not focused on deep database diagnostics.

IBM InfoSphere Optim Configuration Manager

IBM InfoSphere Optim Configuration Manager helps organizations discover, manage, and track their database and client inventory, configuration, and deployments. When performance degradation occurs, the first question is often "what changed?". InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager provides integration with InfoSphere Optim Configuration Manager to view changes for the performance context in question so database administrators can quickly determine whether recent changes may be the underlying cause of performance issues.

IBM Tivoli® Composite Application Manager for Transactions

IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Transactions helps organizations more quickly and easily detect and isolate transaction response and availability issues. It enables faster problem resolution. IT staff can view auto-generated topology mappings to follow the path of a user transaction across the domains of the users' infrastructure in a process that is transparent to end users. View time spent in each components and launch in-context subject matter expert capabilities for deep-dive analysis directly from the topology mapping.

InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager is a complementary offering that provides the deep-dive analysis for DB2 for Linux , UNIX , and Windows databases. Contextual launch points are built in between Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Transactions and InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager.

IBM InfoSphere Optim pureQuery Runtime for Linux , UNIX , and Windows

IBM InfoSphere Optim pureQuery Runtime for Linux , UNIX , and Windows is used by both developers and administrators to simplify application code, improve application performance and improve data security. When used with Data Studio, it helps developers rapidly build database applications reinforcing best practices. The run time may be used by DBAs to improve SQL performance for an application without having to modify the application. pureQuery may be used to improve data security by allowing execution of only approved SQL.

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 web page 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_sp ecific_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.

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 five years from the general availability date, as long as your 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.

System i Software Maintenance applies

No

Educational allowance available

Not applicable.

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

On/Off Capacity on Demand (CoD)

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract - Z125-6907, Amendment for iSeries® and pSeries® Temporary Capacity On Demand - Software - must be signed prior to use.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM , which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent ." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent , refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic.html

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security

The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM . The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM . The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM .

More accurate reporting

Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM , problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support

Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support Web site at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic.html

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent . Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.
