Chapter objectives
Chapter objectives

  • Upon completion of this chapter the student should be able to understand:

    • What scalability means

    • Differences between scaling in and scaling out

    • Mainframe’s hardware relationship with scalability

    • Software scalability levels

    • Parallel Sysplex relationship with scalability

    • Workload management main concepts


Introduction to scalability
Introduction to scalability

  • Some definitions:

  • Hardware capability of a system to increase performance under an increased load when resources are added (From Wikipedia Encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalability)

  • Software ability to grow with your needs. A scalable software package means that you only buy the parts you need, and that it has the ability to grow by adding on as you grow. (From The Concise Tech Encyclopedia:

    http://www.tech-encyclopedia.com/term/scalability)


Scalability concepts
Scalability concepts

  • Scalability approaches

    • Scale vertically or scale up : add resource to a single node in a system

    • Scale horizontally or scale out : add nodes to a system


Scalability concepts1
Scalability concepts

  • Scalability influences

    • Vertically growth : Upgrade the installed server processor capacity to a larger one within the same family

    • Horizontally growth through Parallel Sysplex: add processor capacity by adding more servers in a cluster.

Provisioning

Provisioning is the end-to-end capability to automatically deploy and dynamically optimize resources in response to business objectives in heterogeneous environments.

  • helps to respond to changing business

  • is a critical step to being able to then orchestrate the entire environment to respond to business needs on demand.

Scalability of IBM System z – Parallel Sysplex


Parallel sysplex
Parallel Sysplex

  • Serialization : to coordinate access to resources

    • Enqueuing : serialization for a large number of resource

    • Locking : extremely quick, but only for a small number of resources

  • Communication : Cross-System coupling facility provides simplified multisystep management services withjin a base sysplex configuration


Parallel sysplex cont
Parallel Sysplex (Cont...)

  • Data sharing and Coupling facility


Parallel sysplex cont1

  • Workload distribution

    • Manually

    • Round robin

    • Dynamic workload distribution

    • Workload Management-driven application servers


Provisioning
Provisioning

  • Dynamic Resource Distribution

    • Up to 60 logical partitions (LPAR)

    • Each LPAR is completely isolated and protected

    • Processors can be shared

    • Workload Manager (WLM) can distributed processing resources across LPAR clusters

    • I/O bandwith can be shared amongs LPARs under WLM control

    • Each LPAR has own physical memory, it can be altered dynamically


Capacity on demand cod

Capacity On Demand (CoD)

Different CoD options:

  • Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD)

  • Customer Initiated Upgrade (CIU)

  • On/Off Capacity on Demand


Workload manager wlm
Workload Manager (WLM) dynamically activate one or more resources in your server as your business peaks dictate.

  • The idea of Workload Manager is to make a contract between the installation (end user) and the operating system. The installation classifies the work running on the z/OS operating system in distinct service classes and defines goals for them which express the expectation how the work should perform. WLM uses these goal definitions to manage the work across all systems of a parallel sysplex environment.


Wlm components
WLM Components dynamically activate one or more resources in your server as your business peaks dictate.


Wlm cont
WLM (Cont...) dynamically activate one or more resources in your server as your business peaks dictate.

  • Work unit identification

    • Managing Units of Work on z/OS (e.g. A transaction)


Wlm cont1
WLM (Cont...) dynamically activate one or more resources in your server as your business peaks dictate.

  • Defining the service level

    • Importance of a goal

    • Adjustment routine

    • Workload Management controls


Wlm cont2
WLM (Cont...) dynamically activate one or more resources in your server as your business peaks dictate.

  • WLM extensions

  • Intelligent Resource Director (IRD)

    • CPU LPAR management

    • Dynamic channel path management

    • I/O Priority


Summary
Summary dynamically activate one or more resources in your server as your business peaks dictate.

  • The New Mainframe:

    • is scalable

    • On hardware and software level

    • Parallel Sysplex is involved

    • WLM
