Without doubt QZDASOINIT and QSQSRVR jobs should be in a subsystem by
themselves with a shared pool attached. You can do that right now before
the box arrives and potentially save some grief. No reason to wait on that

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.
