Dave, have you enabled "Performance Management for System i" (the latest name for PM/400)? It collects data from your system and reports it to IBM in a summary fashion so that you can obtain graphs that will help you make your decision. See sample reports at http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/support/pm/index.html .

What tools do you use to monitor performance on your system?
iSeries Navigator has some monitors that will generate helpful graphs.

As a loyal IBM employee, I will mention IBM Performance Tools for people who like green-bar paper. Perhaps you or your business partner are more familiar with www.mpginc.com/perfnav1.htm or similar vendor products.

I've been told by an IBM business partner turning on batch is much cheaper than interactive.
