Licensing metric definitions for IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus

IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus V8.1 is entitled using the following metric definitions.

Application Instance

Application Instance is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An entitlement is required for each instance of an application connected to or managed by the program. An application in a test, development, staging, or production environment is each considered to be a separate instance of the application and each must have an entitlement. As well, multiple application instances in a single environment are each considered to be separate instances of the application and each must have an entitlement.

Connection

Connection is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Connection is a link or association of a database, application, server, or any other type of device to the program. Licensee must obtain entitlements for the total number of Connections which have been or are made to the program.

Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program 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.

Resource Value Unit (RVU)

RVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. RVU Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) 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.

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.

IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus is entitled using the following chargeable components and metrics.

  1. The following programs are licensed on a per Install basis:
    • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Base
    • Netcool/OMNIbus Base

    Each running instance of the program's ObjectServer database is considered an installed copy of a Base Install.

  2. The following programs are licensed on a per Connection basis:
    • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Event Forwarding
    • Netcool/OMNIbus Event Forwarding
    • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Data Exchange
    • Netcool/OMNIbus Data Exchange

    Each instance of one way event forwarding from the program's ObjectServer database is considered an Event Forwarding Connection. Examples include, but are not limited to, use of the program's gateways or API for the purposes of processing by another application or for archive to a database other than event forwarding to the licensee's Tivoli applications or forwarding for display of current active events in user interfaces.

    Each instance of two way data exchange between the program's ObjectServer and other systems or applications is considered a Data Exchange Connection. Examples include, but are not limited, to use of the program's gateways or API for integration with Trouble Ticketing and other Operational Support Systems other than data exchange with the licensee's Tivoli applications.

  3. The following programs are licensed based on RVUs:
    • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Event Device
    • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Event Basic Device
    • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Event EMS
    • IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Event Q3 EMS
    • Netcool/OMNIbus Event Device
    • Netcool/OMNIbus Event Basic Device
    • Netcool/OMNIbus Event EMS
    • Netcool/OMNIbus Event Q3 EMS

    The resources for the purpose of RVU calculation are either Event Device, Event Basic Device, Event EMS, or Event Q3 EMS. Licensee must obtain entitlements for each resource managed regardless of any intermediate consolidation application. For example if licensee consolidates multiple instances of an EMS, then entitlement is required for each EMS instance that has been consolidated. Where the consolidation application is used for the consolidation of multiple Device or Basic Device resources (for example, trap consolidation), entitlement is required for each managed Device or Basic Device that has been consolidated.

    In addition to the RVU entitlements for the resources managed by the program, if the program is configured to provide high availability of the management system, licensee must obtain additional RVU entitlements for all resources managed by the program. Configuration considered to be providing high availability includes but is not limited to one or more of the following: failover and failback connections to the ObjectServer databases configured for Hot Standby, event store and forward, peer to peer heartbeating, and event resynchronization with restarting element management systems.

    An Event Device is an element that has the capability to initiate a notification or respond to a request for notification. Examples include, but are not limited to, servers, routers, and switches, Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) processors, and managed instances within a third-party cloud.

    An Event Basic Device Tier is a resource with limited computing power, equipment monitored by a special purpose sensor or telemetry device, or NSU. Examples include, but are not limited to, point-of-sale terminals, printers, VoIP telephones, dsl modems, cable modems, and assets such as production equipment, facilities-related items, and transportation-related items.

    An Event EMS is an instance of an Element Management System provided by a non-IBM software vendor or network equipment provider that provides unified fault, configuration, accounting performance, or security management including, but not limited to, the capability of initiating appropriate action to one or more physical devices and fault management. Other resources counted at the EMS Tier include mainframe systems (which are measured per 400 MSUs), IBM Tivoli Monitoring when use of IBM Tivoli Monitoring is restricted to the forwarding of situation events relating only to performance data (broader usage of IBM Tivoli Monitoring requires device pricing), and Microsoft™ System Center Operations Manager. A Million Service Units (MSUs) is defined as millions of Central Processing Unit (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 MSU capacity by vendor and machine, refer to

    http://www.ibm.com/systems/z/resources/swprice/reference/exhibits/hardwar e.html

    A Q3 EMS is an instance of an Element Management System, which is interfaced via the Q3 protocol

Terms and conditions

Top 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.

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.

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 (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) 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.

License Information number

  • L-DWIN-9GVHUC: IBM Netcool Operations Insight
  • L-PKEY-B95K3J: IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus 8.1
  • L-NHON-9HTNCX: IBM Tivoli Netcool/Impact

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).

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.

Statement of good security practices

Top 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.

IBM Electronic Services

Top 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® V6.1 and AIX V7.1, 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

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 24x7 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 via either the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide you a single point of exit from your site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into your system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by you and IBM. Your business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, you 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, you can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Support website at

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

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 your 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, you are able to see search results that apply specifically to your systems.
