Re: R16 CPU use
"Kay - we are in a similar situation regarding CPU and just did the 14.1 to
16.0 SP(1) upgrade - and for us it has been CPU neutral (I checked back
through some e-mail exchanges with our capacity guy to make sure that this
was indeed the case).

We are running multi-tasking and believed that in either 15 or 16 there were
improvements in that area and so hoped for some CPU gain - but to date

We need to go back and review our sysgen to see if during the install we
undid some previous tuning that if reset might get us back some CPU. We'll
let you know if we find anything.

Cheers - Gary
