Sounds like PASE is doing its own memory management and not using the i5OS
paging. I'd guess that the memory allocated to the "AIX box" within your
PASE job is overcommitted and swapping out to whatever AIX uses for a swap
file. AIX doesn't grow memory like i5OS does. Nor is it going to grab more
memory from i5OS. On the other hand, I find no reference to setting the
memory allocation in QP2SHELL or any of the other API's that might build
an "AIX box".

Can somebody tell me what storage pool is used for PASE jobs?

I'm having a performance issue with some jobs in PASE and wonder if it is
possible/desirable to give them their own "playground" and if so how. Or
should auto tune be taking care of this for me?

Reason for asking is that I'm seeing only about 50% CPU usage
(WRKSYSSTS) and almost no page faults - yet the job is running slowly. I
am trying to get my head around this whole PASE thing, but the tools I'm
familiar with to help me review what is going on don't seem to be helping
- there must for example be a way to see what PASE jobs are running, but
I'm danged if I can find it. Anyone point me to an Idiots Guide to PASE?
