Thanks, Rob.

In reviewing various documents a lot of them point to creating a new subsystem and pushing the QZDASOINIT jobs onto it. I guess it's something we'll have to investigate once the new box arrives.

We would have purchased one of the new i8 boxes coming out next month, but our applications are unproven on 7.1 and I wasn't going to risk having a primary box with untested apps on it.

Now there's an oxymoron: "new 400".

I don't believe there is a way to dedicate out processors like you can memory. With memory, you can bust it up into subsystems and whatnot. This has been around since, well, back on 400's.
About the only way to dedicate processors is to create separate partitions.

In the next month or so our new 400 will be delivered to us. The new box
will have two cores because right now our single core machine is being
crushed by the QZDASOINIT jobs (they occupy anywhere from 75% - 90% of the
CPU utilization at any given time).

Yes, we are investigating the reasons why these jobs are occupying so
much, but I wanted to know if there's a way I can dedicate a core to a
specific job or subsystem? I would like to move the web jobs off to their
own core so the other core can focus on taking care of the other tasks.

Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.
