I had a customer at v4r2 or 3.  I sent a note to an IBM contact at the lab.
He asked for a certain kind of data collection to determine the CPU cost -
the cost was predicted by the Performance Advisor.  I collected the data and
sent it to him.

-|Shahar,  what version/release are you running? In V4R2 (and perhaps V4R3)
-|there was something going on with the way the Performance Tools counted
-|authority lookups that generated very high authority lookup values and
-|indicated CPU usage. The high numbers were not related to private
-|authority
-|in this case.  A lookup is counted only when the system has to search the
-|user profile for the authority to an object. The *problem* went away with
-|V4R4.

-|Hi Shahar,
-|
-|You're right - there is a bit in the object header indicating whether
-|private authorities to the object exist or not. If not the search
-|algorithm
-|jumps to examine *PUBLIC authority.
-|
-|A second bit indicates whether any existing private authorities are less
-|than the public authorities. If not the system performs the same bypass of
-|additional authority lookups as the first bit and immediately examine
-|*PUBLIC authority.
