Not exactly.
There is nothing special about console job. It will be treated as
interactive with all consequences.
However, interactive governor will not kick in if there is ONLY ONE
interactive job on system.
This was designed to let customers to perform backups or some special
dedicated processing at full system speed.

Eric,

From what I've read, the twinax system console counts as 0 (zero) to the
interactive count.  AFAIK, you can have a twinax console to a pure
server model without any performance hit.  Even IBM has the brain matter
to know that you can not trust anything -but- a terminal to control the
system.

Even if it's a lame 9600 baud connected device.

Besides, how do you control the machine if you are in a position that
forces you to shut down and restart all the server (TCP/IP) programs?
