Re:Multitasking - is it worth it?

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Oct 2, 2008
I have a system which is purely Batch and CICS. There is no IDMS DC or ADS.

Would multitasking bring me any advantage or would it just be an overhead?

R16 SP6 . Z/OS 1.9. 4 processor large IBM thing - I lose track of the model numbers.

My system is well buffered and uses dataspaces extensively CPU availability is my issue. There is no paging and I/O is not a problem.

Thanks for any tips.

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?
