Ideally you would buy enough CPU that people don't care.
This is our 840, 12-Way
% CPU used . . . . . . . :        5.3
Our users don't seem to have this concern.

However, you could give them a nice graphical tool.  Set up a CPU monitor 
in iSeries Navigator in Management Central.  Then when the CPU% exceeds 
your threshold the icon at the bottom of the screen will change colors and 
insult your mother until you bring it back into line.  Granted, it's not 
in the 'tray' like my temperature thingy is that flashes red 
whenever there's a weather alert, but your users will get the gist.  In XP 
you might want to turn off 'stack icons' so that it remains visible.

CPU percentage

Under WRKACTJOB there is a CPU percentage that I would like to have
displayed on all screens / menus so users will quit bugging me whenever 
run these jobs that keep it at 100%  from 5-10 minutes at a time and then
call me wondering why the 400 is "so slow."

It would be even better if the number was red when it passed a certain
threshold...say 80% or so.

No matter how many times I explain it no one seems to remember. Arrgh!


Can it be done?
