-- MacWheel99@aol.com (Alister Wm Macintyre) (Al Mac) -- Importance: Normal Subject: V5R1 Interactive Perf To: "AS400" <email@example.com> From: "Dan Hayden" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Fri, 4 Jan 2002 13:45:28 -0600 Just a FYI.... Q. My customer recently went to V5R1 and the 5250 interactive performance seems to have changed. Is there a problem? A: Unfortunately, the integration of new iSeries function into V4R5 and V5R1 resulted in tighter controls being applied to a customer's use of interactive capacity beyond the published 5250 Interactive CPW levels of capacity. When the published 5250 Interactive CPW levels are exceeded, long running 5250 interactive jobs are not being managed the same they were managed at V4R4. As a result, some customers have experienced different performance characteristics when compared to V4R4, even though they were running very similar workloads. V5R1 Customers: If you are operating at or beyond the published 5250 Interactive CPW capacity levels for your configured server and are experiencing the situation outlined above, then apply PTF #MF27323 (Included in the latest CUM package #C1302510). After installing PTF MF27281, customers should expect to see V5R1 interactive performance characteristics consistent with V4R4. V4R5 Customers: If you are operating at or beyond the published Interactive CPW capacity levels for your configured server and are experiencing the situation that was outlined above, then you can upgrade to V5R1 and apply PTF #MF27323 or you can wait to apply a V4R5 PTF that is currently under development (target availability is Dec 31, 2001). After installing the forthcoming PTF, customers should expect to see V4R5 interactive performance characteristics consistent with V4R4 Regards, Dan Dan Hayden 812 465-1587 IBM iSeries400 Senior Server Specialist 812 465-1504 (Fax) 25 NW Riverside Drive Evansville, IN 47708
