Re: Multitasking - is it worth it?
"Hi Ed

That's very interesting. Would you modify any of that opinion based on my not having any DC or ADS? The only CPU burners within IDMS would be IDMS modules themselves and - in our case anyway - most would be MPMODE SYSTEM I guess.

CA have given me a ballpark +15% on CPU to just turn it on at all. Is that your experience?
