Given the more modern hardware and the abundance of memory now days, how important is it to break memory into several pools? Wouldn't the OS be better at moving memory between jobs that humans could be?
Given that, if this system needs a 'major overhaul', how exactly does one determine size and assignments of the pools?

I would most certainly agree that the memory allocation on this system needs a major overhaul, not a minor one, major. The current configuration is the source of the sensitivity to memory changes, not the reason for it. That said, something that recently happened to upset a system needs to be dealt with first, then come back and set up the work management the way this system needs it.

if you have diverse workloads (e.g. long running batch, short batch,
java) all competing for memory in *BASE you may well have worse
performance than you would have if you break out into pools...
Jim has a good lead to follow with Indexing, but I was able to help
performance by breaking out my work into separate shared memory pools...

I understand about moving SubSystems to other pools, but wouldn't
that actually take memory away from the jobs that need it. This
system is very sensitive to memory allocation. I want to be sure
about the process and the affects before I offer a pool configuration change.
