subject: Power 6 vs Power 8

Just got permission to publish this.

Disclaimer: These results were experienced at our site and were not run
under any supervision of IBM. Your mileage may vary.

This was a Domino lpar.
Once a week it runs Domino tasks: COMPACT, FIXUP, UPDALL at low business
periods.

Power 6:
04/17/2014 05:00:00 Running Program document for 'FIXUP -L -j'
04/17/2014 05:00:12 Database Fixup: Started: -L -j
04/17/2014 06:23:13 Database Fixup: Shutdown
04/23/2014 03:10:23 Running Program document for 'COMPACT -B'
04/23/2014 07:50:51 Database compactor process shutdown
04/23/2014 04:00:40 Running Program document for 'UPDALL -r'
04/23/2014 04:00:43 Index update process started: -r
04/23/2014 07:12:28 Index update process shutdown

Power 8
04/30/2014 03:10:02 Running Program document for 'COMPACT -B'
04/30/2014 04:50:29 Database compactor process shutdown
Runtime went from 4:40 to 1:40
04/30/2014 04:00:19 Running Program document for 'UPDALL -r'
04/30/2014 04:00:20 Index update process started: -r
04/30/2014 05:09:27 Index update process shutdown
Runtime went from 3:12 to 1:09
05/01/2014 05:00:46 Running Program document for 'FIXUP -L -j'
05/01/2014 05:00:49 Database Fixup: Started: -L -j
05/01/2014 05:18:04 Database Fixup: Shutdown
Runtime went from 1:23 to 0:18.

Same lpar.
Same Domino partition

Went from being a 'host' partition on Power 6 down to being a 'guest'
partition on Power 8.

zip file containing full details of hardware available upon request.

I don't know what sort of functionality that RPG program has; if it's an
API you can almost certainly code it in CL. As an aside, it might have
been easier to use Notepad to enter the source, FTP it from the PC to
the V4 machine and then CPYF to a source member. Saves the laborious
cut & paste issue.

Anybody have a 6385-001 tape drive?

Just looked in the grave yard, don't have one. Are you looking for a
drive, or do you want to convert an old SAVLIB to something you can read?

That program doesn't work on that machine. The vendor sent a save file with
a program fix. He's been told now to send me the source code to copy and
paste, and I'll fix it myself.

FTP doesn't work. Some moke decided to remove the FTP exit point programs,
and IBM's instructions to re-add them don't work.

This is a vendor package bug, so they're looking for a tape drive. I've
washed my hands of the issue.

By the way, it's running 7.1 with an early TR8. Not even running 7.2.

FTP, Client Access file transfer, Code/400 source transfer, write your
own listener on port 21 - you get the idea.

washed my hands of the issue.

My suggestion is moot. Maybe ideas for the archives...
