Description
Bottom rule

DB2 Performance Solution Pack for z/OS , V1.1 (5655-E74) offers features, functions, and processes that DBAs can use to more effectively identify, diagnose, and solve performance challenges across DB2 for z/OS environments, as well as help prevent them from reoccurring in the future. Key integration features within individual products, such as in-context launching of other tools, direct data import/export and so on, allow users to maintain problem solving context as they move from one tool to the next to identify, diagnose, and solve performance management challenges.

The DB2 Performance Solution Pack for z/OS is composed of the following tools:

IMS Cloning Tool for z/OS , V1.2 (5655-U91) makes it easier to quickly clone IMS subsystems and refresh databases. By employing fast copy technology combined with automation, this tool can help you increase DBA productivity and application availability, while reducing the costs associated with cloning an IMS subsystem or refreshing databases.

Modern storage processing systems provide fast data replication and copying services that allow database data to be replicated instantly. IMS Cloning Tool for z/OS takes advantage of storage processor functions to replicate data on behalf of the database system more quickly. Valuable host CPU and I/O is saved by offloading the copy to the storage processor instead of z/OS . IMS Cloning Tool for z/OS then performs both the volume metadata and IMS metadata management to allow entire IMS subsystems to be cloned or specific IMS databases to be refreshed in just minutes.

IMS Cloning Tool for z/OS helps reduce the time required to create a clone from hours or even days to just minutes, thus boosting efficiency and freeing DBAs from performing time-consuming, multi-step tasks.

You can use IMS Cloning Tool for z/OS to perform the following tasks:

IMS Cloning Tool for z/OS , V1.2 offers the following key features:

IMS Online Reorganization Facility for z/OS , V1.3 (5655-H97) is a high-performance tool that reduces downtime from hours to seconds and increases database administration productivity and efficiency with a single-step reorganization process. The tool can implement changes automatically across all online systems without the need for manual intervention. The single-step reorganization process can be used for all full-function databases, greatly reducing the complexity of the JCL needed to perform the many reorganization process steps.

With IMS Online Reorganization Facility for z/OS , you can:

All features and functionality of the previous release are included in this release. Additionally, the following enhancements are offered:

IMS Tools Solution Packs

IMS Database Solution Pack for z/OS , V1.2 (5655-S77) consists of eight IMS Tools that combined offers features, functions, and processes that DBAs can use to more effectively analyze, maintain, and tune IMS full-function databases, including High Availability Large Databases (HALDBs). IMS Database Solution Pack for z/OS complements and exploits the Autonomics Director and the Administration Console, both components of IBM Tools Base for z/OS , V1.3 (5655-V93).

With Autonomics Director, IMS Database Solution Pack for z/OS implements the automation of tools execution using detailed understanding of the current state of the IMS databases. Once an IMS database has been designed, implemented, and is in use, the IMS Database Solution Pack for z/OS uses the Autonomics Director to assist the DBA in identifying and performing the normal functions associated with maintaining the health, performance, and recoverability of the database. The capabilities of Administration Console are extended by providing detailed insight into the health and availability of full-function IMS databases through its web interface.

For more information regarding functions and features refer to Software Announcement 211-384, dated October 11, 2011 .

IMS Fast Path Solution Pack for z/OS , V1.2 (5655-W14) is a combination of IMS Tools that offer comprehensive utilities and functions that DBAs can use to analyze, maintain, and tune IMS Fast Path databases (DEDBs) and build and analyze Fast Path Secondary Index (FPSI) databases that are supported in IMS V12. Features are provided that can help boost system availability by enabling the operation of a variety of key functions without taking the IMS databases offline. Once an IMS DEDB has been designed, implemented, and is in use, the IMS Fast Path Solution Pack for z/OS uses the Autonomics Director to assist the DBA in identifying and performing the normal functions associated with maintaining the health, performance, and recoverability of the database.

IMS Fast Path Solution Pack for z/OS also uses Autonomics Director to provide a "Diagnosis for DEDB areas health" function for DEDB area reorganization.

With IMS Fast Path Solution Pack for z/OS , DBAs are able to have central control of policies on conditions for exception detection and reorganization of DEDBs. The ISPF based Policy Dialog helps DBAs create, customize, and manage policies. This feature can help save time and resources when performing the tasks of database exception detection and reorganization.

For more information regarding functions and features, refer to Software Announcement 211-384, dated October 11, 2011 .

IMS Performance Solution Pack for z/OS , V1.2 (5655-S42) delivers a more affordable, comprehensive portfolio of IBM database performance management tools. The product combines the features and functions of IMS Connect Extensions for z/OS , IMS Performance Analyzer for z/OS , and IMS Problem Investigator for z/OS . The three products are complementary, making the end-to-end analysis of IMS transactions faster and more easy, supporting improved productivity for problem analysts, improved IMS application performance, more efficient IMS resource utilization, and higher system availability.

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.

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:

Value Unit exhibit VUE007

            MSUs      MSUs
            minimum   maximum   Value Units/MSU
 
Base          1         3       1

Tier B       46       175       0.36
Tier C      176       315       0.27
Tier D      316         +       0.2

Value Units for mainframes without MSU ratings:

MP3000 H50    8
MP3000 H70   12
ESL models    2

Ordering example

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

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

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
          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 to be rounded up to the next integer.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance. This offering:

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will automatically renew annually unless canceled by you.

The combined effect of the IPLA license and the Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance gives you rights and support services comparable to those under the traditional ICA S/390® and System z license or its equivalent. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the level of support you are used to in the ICA business model, you must order both the license for the program and the support for the selected programs at the same Value Unit quantities.

Withdrawal from Marketing (WFM) Information

A new product release within a version supersedes the release level that precedes it. Accordingly, the following product releases will be withdrawn from marketing, effective on the date the new release becomes available.

Releases to be withdrawn from marketing effective February 22, 2013

Trade-in terms for DB2 and IMS Solution Packs

IBM may offer trade-in terms for customers who have separately licensed one or more of the individual products that are included in a Solution Pack and who wish to trade in the licenses to one or more such individual products when licensing a Solution Pack. If IBM offers such trade-in terms, then as part of any such trade in, all entitlements to the products being traded in will be terminated. In some cases, the entitlements to the Solution Packs being licensed by the customer as part of the trade-in arrangement may not be equal to the entitlements being terminated. For example, if the customer holds entitlement to 100 Value Units of product A which has been included in a Solution Pack, and is trading in its license to product A in return for 90 Value Units of the Solution Pack, then, in keeping with the specific trade-in terms, the customer agrees to terminate all its entitlements to product A (100 VUs).

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

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.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

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

On/Off Capacity on Demand (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.

Top rule
Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

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.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge optiontop.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (IAASM). This offering:

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will automatically renew annually unless canceled by you.

The combined effect of the IPLA license and the Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance gives you rights and support services comparable to those under the traditional ICA S/390 and System z license or its equivalent. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the level of support you are used to in the ICA business model, you must order both the license for the program and the support for the selected programs at the same Value Unit quantities.
