Larry,

It's my contention that (at the current rate that we use our systems) that 
you never have to IPL a RISC AS/400, except for operations that require an 
IPL (PTFs, new releases, upgrades, etc.).

The only exception to this is QRPLOBJ.  IMHO, IBM needs to create an 
extension to cleanup that does a smart cleanup of QRPLOBJ, which tests for 
objects in use.  The old design to cleanup at the end of IPL was adequate 
for CISC, but not for RISC.
