Hi all,

This is purely academic question yet i'm aruing this
issue with a collegue for sometime now.
so i'm asking out of 'academic curiosity'

The facts:

ibm mistreats it's installed base. Whenever you buy a
'server model' and use interactive application a
looped task named cfint starts eating your cpu.

i'm sure this task is needed only to make current
customer pay more for the existing applications and it
is not hardware related (here the argue begins..)

If i'm correct and this cfint is software based then
in teory somehow one may expect to 'cheat it' if it is
hardware then even in teory this is not doable.

Bottom line:

Am i right ? if i had the internal knowledge will it
be possible to slow down "crazy" cfint thus paying
less for the same performance ?

Thanks for any input, and once again i'm NOT trying
anything harmfull in this post(although ibm deserves
criticism over their current policy).
