I know it's not quite the answer to your question, but we moved our
websphere install from a 270 to an x86 dell server running linux.
We've had performance increases that I'd venture to say show several
orders of magnitude improvement over what we had with the OS/400 install.

We still use the OS/400 databases for the data, but just use jdbc from
the linux server to the OS/400's backend, and it's much quicker.

As for running it in linux through an LPAR, I wish I could comment on
that-- we're waiting for a box big enough so that we can consolidate
our 400's and get a few linux lpar's to fiddle with.

PS -- the x86 system runs debian (not redhat or suse)

HTH in case you're looking into moving to a linux on x86 solution!
