Thanks for the post.  Would anyone like to discuss the meaning of the
following paragraph of the article?  Why would this be true?  are they
saying that a 12 way wouldn't be a significant increase in power when
running websphere?   what are the "major software issues" that would bog
them down?


The issue of maxing out on capacity was faced early on. Passer said
stress tests were performed at the IBM iSeries headquarters, in
Rochester, Minnesota. From that, it was determined that adding a
second processor would be "an easy fix." The next round of increasing
capacity is more complicated. "After two CPUs in the iSeries," Passer
explained, "the application server has too much overhead and doesn't
really offer a big advantage over multiple application server
instances. In all cases, it means more CPUs, but there are major
software issues one gets bogged down with."
