Why do you believe that database i/o would be better on iSeries?  If both
systems run DB2 then the only advantage I can think of is that iSeries
probably runs DB2 in kernel.  I wonder if RPG gives a performance
advantage?  I've seen some comments suggesting that SQL is slower than RPG
unless you are doing multi-record mass reads/writes.  I have done some
informal tests and my linux box seemed to beat our iSeries at some simple
stuff.  But my tests don't really count as too many things were different
to be of any real value.
