Capturing zIIP eligible IDMS Work

We are currently looking into whether or not we should move our IDMS and DB2 work to zIIP processors.

I know some installations have gone to zIIP with great success.
We can turn on zIIP in our CVs and get statistics that tell us how much is elible for zIIP offload.
CA however warns that turning on zIIP without having the zIIP processors active will result in overhead.
Can anybody share their statistics for the overhead of turning on zIIP in IDMS, without actaully having the zIIP processors active.
CICS to IDMS DB
IDMS DC
Batch CV Mode
Batch Local Mode

I am aware that the overhead will vary from installation to installation.
Any help will be greatly aqppreciated.
