    Description

    Integration among the monitoring agents is key to leveraging the power of the OMEGAMON XE products. Dynamic workspace linking allows you to easily navigate between workspaces that are provided by multiple products. This feature aids problem determination and improves integration across the monitoring products, allowing you to quickly determine the root cause of a problem. Predefined cross-product links provided by the OMEGAMON XE products, allow you to obtain additional information about systems, subsystems, resources, or network components.

    The product interface and documentation for OMEGAMON XE monitoring agents on System z are translated into these languages: Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish. These globalized products make it easier for non-English speaking people to use OMEGAMON products and should reduce the amount of time required for problem resolution. The translation of the monitoring agents provides a consistency with the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Version 6.1, which has also been globalized.

    Each of the OMEGAMONs include serviceability enhancements such as IBM Support Assistance (ISA) plug-ins and a problem determination guide to help the correction of problems with the OMEGAMONs if one should occur.

    These releases also introduce a new feature referred to as agent versioning. Agent versioning allows V3.1 and V4.1 monitoring agents to coexist in your environment during an upgrade period, so that you can deploy new 4.1.0 monitoring agents to z/OS systems and subsystems along with older monitoring agents. Refer to the product publications for details about this implementation.

    Additionally, all V4.1.0 OMEGAMON's with the exception of OMEGAMON XE on z/VM and Linux use the Configuration Tool V3.1.0 that provides easy configuration of the product, propagates environments and applies maintenance. Enhancements to ICAT V3.1.0 are for Run Time Environments (RTEs), set up to run using the SMP/E target libraries, ICAT now allows activation without the requirement of running the RTE Load job during SMP/e maintenance. Configuration data does not have to change with the installation of service. When activating service, you should not have to stop all monitors to update any one of them. The Configuration Tool supports SSL and IP V6 with a current restriction to 32 byte host names.

    Engine-based value unit pricing

    Engine-based Value Unit pricing for IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE on z/VM and Linux is designed to provide a decreasing price curve as hardware capacities and workload grow, which may help improve price/performance.

    There may also be a price benefit when you grow your capacity. Additional capacity is not priced starting at the base with a higher price per unit. Instead, additional capacity is priced starting at the capacity (engines) on which IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE on z/VM and Linux has already been installed.

    Note: Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

    Value unit-based pricing

    Value Unit pricing for eligible zSeries IPLA programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each zSeries 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 customers. For each zSeries 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 offers additional price benefits for customers. The quantity of each zSeries IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as 'entitled license capacity'. If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a zSeries IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

    For each zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit Pricing, you should:

    • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
    • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
    • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit, and
    • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost.

    To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to VUs 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 zSeries IPLA program you selected, refer to the TERMS AND CONDITIONS section.

    IPLA and subscription and support considerations

    IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. The customer may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement. It is the customer's responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

    Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

    A no-charge Subscription and Support registration record will be established for each designated machine where IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE on z/VM and Linux is running. These no-charge Subscription and Support registration records will be linked to the billable Subscription and Support and all billable Subscription and Support within the scope of the engine-based Value Units aggregation will be linked together.

    Subscription and Support is an annual charge and should be kept at an annual term.

    The IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON XE Family of Products use the security and auditability features of the operating system software. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

    IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing

    IBM Tivoli software products are priced using IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-Based Pricing system is based upon the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model, which uses a managed-environment approach -- whereby price is determined by what is managed rather than the number and type of product components installed.

    For example, all servers monitored with IBM Tivoli's monitoring product (IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other Tivoli products may manage clients, client devices, agents, network nodes, users, or other items, and are licensed and priced accordingly.

    Unlike typical systems management licensing models that require entitlements of specific software components to specific systems, the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model provides the customer flexibility to deploy its IBM Tivoli software products within its environment in a manner that can address and respond to the customer's evolving architecture. That is, as the architecture of a customer's environment changes, the customer's implementation of IBM Tivoli software can be altered as needed without affecting the customer's license requirements (as long as the customer does not exceed its entitlements to the software).

    Under Enhanced Value-Based Pricing, licensing and pricing of server-oriented applications are determined based upon the server's use in the customer's environment. Typically, such applications are licensed and priced in a manner that corresponds to each installed and activated processor of the server managed by the IBM Tivoli application to help correlate price to value while offering a simple solution.

    Where a server is physically partitioned, this approach is modified. This partitioning technique is the approach used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. For servers capable of physical partitioning (for example, IBM System p Scalable POWERparallel Systems servers, Sun Ultra servers, and HP Superdome servers), an entitlement is required for each processor in the physical partition being managed by the Tivoli application. For example, assume that a server has 24 processors installed in aggregate. If this server is not partitioned, entitlements are required for all 24 processors. If, however, it is physically partitioned into three partitions each containing eight processors, and Tivoli products were managing only one of the three partitions, then entitlements would be required for the eight processors on the physical partition managed by the IBM Tivoli application.

    For servers with virtual or logical partitions, entitlements are required for all installed and activated processors on the server. For each IBM Tivoli application managing a clustered environment, licensing is based on the cumulative number of installed and activated processors on each server in the cluster. Where the cluster includes physically partitioned servers, the considerations described above concerning physically partitioned servers apply as well.

    Enhanced Value-Based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC/UNIX and Microsoft Windows/Intel technologies, in order to simplify the customers licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does not differentiate between non-System z server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to System z and other host servers as well.

    IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Terminology Definitions

    Engine

    An engine is also referred to as a central processor (CP) or processor. Engines for traditional workloads are called General Purpose CPs. Engines for Linux workloads are called Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines or Linux-only engines. Engines for Coupling Facility workloads are called Integrated Coupling Facility (ICF) engines.

    IBM Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL)

    This optional facility enables additional processing capacity exclusively for Linux workload, with no effect on the model designation of a System z or OS/390 server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM Integrated Facility for Linux will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS, OS/390, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems/applications. There is, as indicated, a charge associated with the IFL, and there may also be a charge for applications which run on the IFL.

    The IFL may be dedicated to a single Linux-mode logical partition or it may be shared by multiple Linux-mode logical partitions. Installations should note that the Linux workspace enabled by this facility will not support any of the S/390 traditional operating systems (OS/390, TPF, VSE, or VM). Only Linux applications or Linux operating in conjunction with the Virtual Image Facility, an environment that operates within a logical partition or in native S/390 mode and provides the capability to create multiple Linux images, are supported by the IBM S/390 Integrated Facility for Linux.

    Millions of Service Units (MSU)

    Millions of Service Units (MSU) is defined as millions of 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).

    http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/library/refguides/sw_ pricing.html

    Partitions

    A server's resources (CPU, memory, I/O, interconnects and buses) may be divided according to the needs of the applications running on the server. This partitioning can be implemented with physical boundaries (Physical Partitions) or logical boundaries (Logical Partitions).

    Physical Partitions are defined by a collection of processors dedicated to a workload and can be used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. In this method, the partitions are divided along hardware boundaries and processors, and the I/O boards, memory, and interconnects are not shared.

    Logical Partitions are defined by software rather than hardware and allocate a pool of processing resources to a collection of workloads. These partitions, while separated by software boundaries, share hardware components and run in one or more physical partitions.

    Processor ("per processor" charging under full capacity)

    In full capacity charging, proof of entitlements must be acquired for all activated "processors" (available for use) that are on the server where the program or a component of the program is run.

    Notes:

    1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
    2. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore technology, IBM considers each core to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
    3. In the IBM System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
    4. Threading, a technique that makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
    5. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the program is run.
    6. When a server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are inactive, four processors are active for the customer.
    7. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web Site:

      http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

    Managed Processor (charging under full capacity in the "managed environment")

    Charges are based on the active processors on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the program rather than on the server where the program is run. The managed processors which require proofs of entitlement (POE) are defined in the Charges section of the announcement or in the License Information's program unique terms.

    Notes:

    1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
    2. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore technology, IBM considers each core to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
    3. The program may not run on some or all of the processors for which POEs are required for the program's valuation method.
    4. In the IBM eServer zSeries IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
    5. Threading, a technique that makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
    6. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade(s) with which the program is affiliated.

    Server

    A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user and/or client devices over a network. A proof of entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each server on which the program or a component of the program is run or for each server managed by the program. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate Server.

    Standby or Backup Systems

    For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm, and hot. In the cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire another license or entitlement sufficient for that server. All programs running in backu p mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.

    As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes:

    Cold - A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.

    Warm - A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.

    Hot - A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlement for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.

    Doing work, includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.

    In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files or transactions, maintaining a 'heartbeat', active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource, and so on), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

    Value Units

    A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurements are processor cores and MSU's. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as Servers, users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for Your specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. You must obtain a proof of entitlement (PoE) for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for Your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program. Whenever the designated measurement is a processor core, not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web Site:

    System z Server:

    - One 1,500 MSU System z server

    All products in this example employ value unit slope VUE007 (VUE = Value Unit Exhibit). If the customer has installed 1,500 MSUs, the applicable number of Value Units will be:

    |---------------+---------------------+--------------|
    |MSUs           |Value Units / MSU    | Value Units  |
    |---------------+---------------------+--------------|
    |Base        3  |        1.00         |     3.00     |

    |---------------+---------------------+--------------|
    

    When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is rounded up to the next integer. So the customer will need to license 344 Value Units in this example.

    Translation from MSUs to Value Units Example using VUE001
     
                   MSUs       Value Units/MSU
       Base        1-3            5.25
       Tier A      4-45            .83
       Tier B     46-175           .35
       Tier C    176-315           .26
       Tier D    316+              .20
    

    Note: For the actual translation from MSUs to Value Units for this product, see the table that follows.

    Ordering Example:

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

    If the customer has installed 1,000 MSUs, the applicable Value Units would be:

          Translation from MSUs to Value Units (VUE001)
      -----------------------------------------------------
                  MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
      Base          3     *      5.25         =     15.75
      Tier A       42     *       .83         =     34.86
      Tier B      130     *       .35         =     45.50
      Tier C      140     *       .26         =     36.40
      Tier D      685     *       .20         =    137.00
      -----------------------------------------------------
      Total     1,000                              270
    

    When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

    Value Units for non-MSU-based S/390 processors using VUE001:

      MP3000 models
          H30         =  21.00 Value Units/Machine
          H50         =  22.00 Value Units/Machine
          H70         =  26.00 Value Units/Machine
          ESL Models  =   9.00 Value Units/Machine

    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 zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machine(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, visit the Web site

    http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

    Reference-Based: The required license capacity of a zSeries 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 zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPAR(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    z/OS-Based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS (and z/OS.e) on the machine(s)where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    Reference-Based: The required license capacity of a zSeries 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 zSeries IPLA program with full machine-based terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machine(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, see 'The IBM System z Machines 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 zSeries IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Marketing Announcement letter ZA04-0227 dated August 10, 2004

    Additional Information for Products with Reference-Based Terms zSeries IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in environment the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    An environment is defined as either a single/stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex. Customers may have one or more different environments across their enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each zSeries IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

    When a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment the required license capacity of the zSeries IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one

    1. That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement letter ZA980120, dated January 13, 1998

    2. Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the Sysplex

    Sub-Capacity Eligibility 

    To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select zSeries 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:

    • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS (or z/OS.e) operating systems
    • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
    • All instances of the z/OS operating (or z/OS.e) systems must be running in z/Architecture (64-bit) mode

    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 zSeries 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:

    • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for IBM System z Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
    • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for EWLC, TWLC, zELC, and z/OS.e License Charges (Z125-6587).

    Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract - 'Amendment for System z Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929)' . Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous zSeries IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

    Sub-capacity utilization determination

    Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the utilization of an eligible operating system and machine (e.g., z/OS running in z/Architecture (TM) (64 bit) mode on a zSeries (or equivalent) server).

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

    On/Off capacity on demand

    To be eligible for On/Off Capacity on Demand pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract - Z125-6611, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer On/Off Capacity on Demand - Software - must be signed prior to use.

    IBM Electronic Services

    IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available on the IBM eServer platform. These services provide the opportunity for greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate, but complementary, elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent.

    IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

    The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
