The only way to prove the point is to provide enough information to get
around it.  I don't want to go there.

-|
-|
-|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).
-|
-|Regards
-|
