QBATCH could be significantly better, it depends on what machine you have and 
how you have it tuned. On any of the 'S' machines (30S, 40S, S20, S30...) 
QBATCH would perform much better. Also, what were you doing to your paging 
rates when you ran it interactively? In batch you may have had more memory to 
work with, and the expert cache may have tuned the paging values better. These 
days interactive does not always equal faster!

Just my $0.02 worth.

Sure, you'll save valuable network resources, but the Zip program takes   
SO MUCH of the 400 while zipping that it is actually worse!  And it takes   
long!  QBATCH wouldn't be any better.  I was doing these interactivaly.

We also have many 400s and we were looking into this as a valuable option   
to sending tapes or files over the network.  Well, PKZip hasn't convinced   
us yet.

I have been testing the PKZIP/400 software using all versions for quite
some time, My company is thinking of this product for software   
distribution
purposes, especially since we have over 200 AS400's. I feel that the time
spent zipping a file is worth it,
only because I know what its like sending an 80 meg or larger across the
network, it takes up valuable resources sending an uncompressed file. If
you submitt the zip into Qbatch or Qinter you may find better results.
Please feel free to ask anymore questions regarding this product.
