Description

IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.2.5 products include:

  • IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.2.5
  • IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition V5.2.5

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.2.5

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.2 is designed to provide device management capabilities such as automated system discovery, data replication, configuration, and performance monitoring for storage systems and storage networks. It helps storage administrators conduct device management for multiple storage arrays and Storage Area Network (SAN) fabric components from a single integrated console.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition V5.2.5

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition V5.2 offers the same features as Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.2 but at entry-level for operations with smaller capacities. It is licensed per storage device, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units. It may be a better option for small to medium businesses that need help to reduce the complexity of managing IBM System Storage DS3000, DS4000® and DS5000™, IBM Storwize® V3500, IBM Storwize V3700, IBM Storwize V5000, IBM Storwize V7000, IBM FlashSystem, IBM XIV® Storage System, and third-party storage devices. It helps administrators configure, manage, replicate data, and monitor performance of their entire storage infrastructure from a single console.

Licensing Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition is available for licensing with IBM and third-party storage devices. It uses a per storage device metric. A storage device is also referenced as and called a storage enclosure.

A storage enclosure (a storage device), managed by Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, is defined as an independently powered, channel attached device that stores data on magnetic disks or solid state drives, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units, each constituting separate enclosures. Therefore, an enclosure can be either the main controller housing disk (or solid-state) drives or the expansion chassis that house additional disk (or solid-state) drives for the purpose of expanding the total capacity of the storage system.

If there are any questions about an external storage enclosure that does not conform to this definition, consult your IBM representative for an equivalent measure based on a disk drive count.

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.

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® V5.3, 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 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 is designed to securely transmit either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem 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.

For additional information, refer to IBM Electronic Service Agent

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/esa/

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.
