Upgrading to a newer system not only gets you superior performance and capability, but also reduced operational costs (power consumption, AC, etc), as well as considerable saving on support... Depending on workload, you might even downsize tiers (P30 to P10) and save on vendor support costs.

This isn't my specialty, but upgrading seems a reasonable path to significant savings, as well as eliminating your interactive throttle.

We are on an older system which has the interactive throttle. i've seen
both Max300 and GoFaster, but both are expensive. I was wondering if
there was another way to deal with the issue.

POWER7?

Seriously: 'We're going to need more information!' I can only assume
that you must be on POWER5 or older. The newer hardware has completely
different licensing for interactive capacity and tools that bypass IBM's
interactive limits are no longer effective or in most cases even required.

We are currently using GoFaster to improve interactive performance.

Are there any alternatives to this product?
