DB2 Accessories Suite for z/OS, V1.3 (5655-R14) consists of two features designed to enhance your use of the DB2 for z/OS data server. One or both of these features must be specified when ordering DB2 Accessories Suite V1.3 and its Subscription and Support offering (5655-R30):

The Data Studio Administration Console included in the DB2 Accessories Suite provides a rich Web interface for entry-level monitoring of your DB2 servers on Linux■, UNIX■, and Windows■.

The new release of Data Studio Administration Console has been extended to support DB2 for z/OS. Use it to determine selected health and availability information regarding databases, and troubleshoot problems using expert recommendations.

To enable these new functions for z/OS, a data collector and agent on z/OS, available as part of the Data Studio Workbench feature, must be installed and configured. This data collector and agent only support selected health and availability monitoring in the Data Studio Administration Console. The data collector and agent on z/OS are not required if you want to monitor Q replication and event publishing only.

DB2 Accessories Suite for z/OS, V1.3 supports health and availability monitoring for the following data servers:

Customers are advised that the Data Studio Administration Console provides selected capabilities for system health and availability monitoring for DB2 for z/OS. Customers who want advanced features such as deep dive problem analysis; tracing applications and single SQL executions; historical reporting; proactively sending alerts to pagers, cell phones, or email; customizing health and performance indicators, or creating a performance warehouse for trend analysis and capacity planning may wish to consider selecting the more advanced capabilities in the full-featured health, availability, and performance monitoring and management provided by IBM■ Tivoli■ OMEGAMON■ XE for DB2 Performance Expert on z/OS, V4.1 (5655-Q07), refer to Software Announcement ZP06-0427, dated October 10, 2006..

The Data Studio Administration Console also enables users to monitor Q Replication and event publishing and generate replication health reports via the Q Replication Dashboard. Before you use the Dashboard, you must first set up Q replication or event publishing by using the Replication Center or ASNCLP command-line program.

Data replication health monitoring support for Q replication includes alerts for end-to-end latency exceeded, exceptions issued, deactivation of queues or subscriptions, and termination of the Q Capture or Q Apply program. It will also provide reports of latency analysis, historical latency details, exceptions, and combined message reports across an entire topology.

The Q Replication Dashboard provides:

DB2 Accessories Suite for z/OS, V1.3 supports monitoring of Q Replication 8.2, or later, which runs on the following data servers:

The Web-based Data Studio Administration Console component is available as a Web-download at

http://www.ibm.com/software/data/studio/

DB2 Accessories Suite remains a no-charge offering, helping you achieve immediate return on your investment, because there are no up-front costs associated with the product.

IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS, V1.3 (5655-P01) lets you manage multiple IMS systems in a sysplex or IMSplex environment. It supports real-time display of IMS sysplex and IMSplex-related information. IMS Sysplex Manager helps IMS system programmers, operations personnel, DBAs, and help-desk personnel administer an IMS Sysplex environment by centralizing sysplex information through a single interface. This capability enables you to drill down to the areas of information that you need to access in order to keep IMS availability high.

IMS Sysplex Manager provides features that assist you in managing data sharing, shared message queues, and IMSplex Common Service Layer (CSL) components such as the Operations Manager (OM), Resource Manager (RM), and Structured Call Interface (SCI).

You can use IMS Sysplex Manager to perform the following tasks:

IMS Sysplex Manager supports IMS in varying environments. For example:

IMS Sysplex Manager for z/OS, V1.3 provides the following new features and enhancements that enable you to:

Additionally, the display of information in IMS Sysplex Manager is now enhanced. For example:

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible 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 Web site

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.

Full-capacity mainframes

In cases where full capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution-based, z/OS-based, and 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 (and z/OS.e) 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 System/370™, System/390■, and System z Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901), or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

For more information on sub-capacity System z IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement ZA04-022., dated August 10, 2004.

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 Web site

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 eServer zSeries 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 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 Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer On/Off Capacity on Demand - Software (Z125-6611) must be signed prior to use.
