Hi Keith,

If your tcp/ip jobs are in a different subsystem than the 5250 jobs, and the
tcp/ip subsystem has one tenth the memory available, the tcp/ip jobs would
no doubt run slower. That may have been what Rob was getting at.

My experience has been that tcp/ip over ethernet is faster than twinax,
although what we're talking about is how fast it can send approximately 2k
bytes to the terminal, which has nothing to do with how fast an SQL
statement can execute, unless it's sending status messages that are slowing
things down. That doesn't sound like your problem.
