Description
Bottom rule

IBM IMS Batch Backout Manager for z/OS , V1.2 (5697-H75) is an application management tool that can help users manage the recovery from Data Language/I (DL/I) application ABENDs by reducing manual intervention and improving database availability.

When an IMS batch DL/I application ABEND occurs, two actions must be taken:

Until both actions are taken and batch backout completes, database availability is impacted. In a data sharing environment, locks are not released until batch backout is complete. In a nondata sharing environment, the entire database is unavailable until the backout is complete.

Manual recovery requires time to prepare job control language (JCL) and submit the log close and batch backout jobs. The manual process also introduces an increased possibility of errors, which could result in the need for a lengthy database recovery. When these recovery steps are executed automatically using IMS Batch Backout Manager for z/OS , manual errors are reduced, the time required to perform the backout is reduced, and database availability is improved.

IMS Batch Backout Manager for z/OS performs the following tasks to automate the recovery from an IMS DL/I batch job ABEND:

IMS Batch Backout Manager for z/OS includes the following capabilities:

IMS Batch Backout Manager for z/OS , V1.2 contains the following enhancements:

IBM IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer for z/OS , V1.4 (5697-H77) is a performance management tool that provides detailed statistical analysis reporting that can help users evaluate current IMS online and batch job database buffer pools. Additionally, it provides the information required to help determine whether changes to the buffer pool configuration would benefit IMS performance.

Every database buffer pool has different characteristics, so it is difficult to know how configuration changes might affect each one. Often, users have to resort to guesswork and hope that tuning activities will not impede input/output (I/O) rates.

IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer for z/OS provides the following capabilities:

For both the actual buffer pool configuration and a model configuration with different buffer pool or database data set assignments, IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer for z/OS provides a report for each subpool that shows the following information:

IMS Tools Knowledge Base for z/OS , a component of IBM Tools Base for z/OS , is used to store and retrieve IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer for z/OS reports.

IMS Buffer Pool Analyzer for z/OS , V1.4 offers the following enhancements:

IBM IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS , V2.2 (5655-R58) is a transaction management tool that can help improve productivity in several areas of IMS command processing and viewing by providing features that simplify the running, analyzing, and coordinating of IMS commands. Among the benefits of using IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS is its ability to provide a single image view of multiple IMS systems.

IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS has the following capabilities:

IMS Command Control Facility for z/OS , V2.2 offers the following enhancements:

IBM IMS High Performance System Generation Tools for z/OS , V2.3 (5655-P43) is a transaction management tool that offers an integrated solution that can help eliminate the requirement for IMS sysgens and provides the capability to dynamically alter IMS sysgen application resources.

IMS High Performance System Generation Tools provides the following features:

IMS High Performance System Generation Tools can perform the following IMS sysgen changes:

Once a list of resource updates is created, the list can be verified to determine that there are no resource conflicts and that the updates should install properly in the target IMS system. Installation of the list of resource updates can then be performed, either from a TSO session or via a batch job.

A list of resource updates can be installed in a single IMS system or for a group of IMS systems simultaneously. This feature can be useful in IMSPlex environments, helping confirm that updates should install successfully in all IMS systems at the same time, and that resource definitions are kept in synchronization with other members of the IMSPlex.

IMS High Performance System Generation Tools includes the following capabilities:

The IMS High Performance System Generation Tools Fastgen process duplicates the MODBLKS sysgen process using less CPU and elapsed time. The Fastgen process can be run either as a batch job or from the IMS High Performance System Generation Tools ISPF panels.

The functions provided by IMS High Performance System Generation Tools can be protected by the user's security subsystem and can be customized to work within the user's local change control procedures.

IMS High Performance System Generation Tools for z/OS , V2.3 contains all of the features and functions of the previous release and provides the following enhancements:

IBM IMS Network Compression Facility for z/OS , V1.2 (5655-E41) is a performance management tool that can help reduce both user response time and line costs by compressing data streams to 3270 users.

IMS Network Compression Facility for z/OS is a practical tool that utilizes 3270 commands to compress unnecessary or redundant characters, blank spaces, field definitions, and other data. No application changes are necessary and no alterations are made to the users' screens.

IMS Network Compression Facility for z/OS includes an ISPF interface that allows support personnel to monitor the performance of IMS Network Compression Facility for z/OS and IMS message traffic.

The ISPF interface can be used for the following tasks:

IMS Network Compression Facility for z/OS is compatible with any 3270 hardware device and PC 3270 emulator connected to IMS through systems network architecture (SNA), bisynchronous, or TCP/IP controlled teleprocessing lines. If the data stream is being received by a computer program (for example, a screen scraper), IMS Network Compression Facility for z/OS provides options to reduce or eliminate changes that might be required.

IMS Network Compression Facility for z/OS , V1.2 offers the following enhancements:

Accessibility by people with disabilities

A US Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) containing details on accessibility compliance can be requested at

http://www.ibm.com/able/product_accessibility/index.html

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of their general availability, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

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.

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 (IAASM). This offering:

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will automatically renew annually unless cancelled 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.

Subscription and Support for IMS tools Solution Packs

Customers who license IMS Solution Packs, and who have previously separately licensed one or more of the component products included in a Solution Pack, should discontinue subscription and support for the previously licensed component products. For additional information about IMS Solution Packs and their component products, refer to Software Announcement 210-030, dated February 09, 2010 .

Withdrawal from marketing 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.

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.
