CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Edward Gorga, Principal Support Engineer for October 30, 2013.
There have been some new enhancements to zIIP support introduced via PTF in 18.0 and 18.5. These deliver signifcant performance improvements by increasing the amount of workload eligible to be offloaded to the zIIP processor. See the IDMS zIIP FAQ for details.
The two new PTF are RO63129 for 18.0 and RO63736 for 18.5. With the new PTFs you may see up to 90% of the workload offloaded to zIIP.
