Where do you get your information from ?

From my job. A few years back (2005, 2006), i usually migrated 2-3
170/270 a month to 520ies.

And it was always awfully slow if you had to use the network route -
not that tapes were any faster, they were just easier to deal with.

Exactly what does "run out of CPU when doing large transfers" mean ?

It means the data transfer process is CPU bound.

How many of those processors have you actually worked on ?

Only the smaller ones. I rarely deal with big machines.

Do you mean that a 170 just quit because it was doing a "large"
data transfer ?

They don't quit, they're just very slow.
