fixed

Rob,

I'm not sure if you previously stated, what is this guest LPAR used for?

Paul.

I'm digging what you're saying there. I'm no stranger to TRCASPBAL.

At which point do you run:
STRASPBAL TYPE(*ENDALC)
of the load source?

1: After Task 8: Restore the operating system, beginning
with ƒ oTask 1: Starting to restore the
operating systemƒ ?

2: In the middle of the task 8 above? If so, at which step?

When?


If i is hosting i, I thing I would elect to attempt to run with
no drives in *ENCALC status until I actually see some sort of a
performance issue where high I/Os to the load source can be
clearly identified as the culprit.

At that time, I would run STRASPBAL *ENDALC for UNIT(1) followed
by a STRASPBAL *MOVDTA.

Other options could be to run a TRCASPBAL followed by a
STRASPBAL *USAGE to rearrange "cold" data. This would be in the
hope the hot load source becomes warm.
