Our Inventory Inquiry went from an average of 11.2 sec to 11.5 seconds! Everything else was pretty much the same timing wise. >> John, Sorry to hear about your performance problem. Our "From" and "To" boxes were the exact same ones as yours and we upgraded in December. We are on BPCS 4.0.3 as I think I recall you are also. While I didn't do any benchmark performance tests, I can tell you that my users literally fly through their work now with sub-second response in some areas. With IBM and SSA working with you on this, I'm SURE this has been checked. . . What is your sysval for QPFRADJ? Mine is set at "0 - No Adjustment" . After setting up the system the way I wanted it, I don't want it changed. Plus, I remember hearing (it sounds good :) ) that if you have it set to automatically adjust, performance is degraded during the adjustment! Also, are you on V3R7 of OS/400? There's a huge difference between V3R6 and V3R7 performance-wise. Did you get more DASD when you upgraded? What's your disk utilization? Are you using PM/400? Did you upgrade memory also? What is it's utilization during peak hours? If you don't know the answers to these questions, IBM and SSA should or at least be searching for them. Just my ever humble thoughts. .
