Good response, Jim. Perhaps one clarification is that you can assign job priority and time slice to sub-systems, which affect CPU allocations to servers like Tomcat.

Subject: Re: Questions about subsystems and performance (both in general and specific to Tomcat)

In order:

Processor is not allocated at the subsystem level, rather at the
partition level.  While there are methods to control how much memory is
used by a subsystem and its jobs, there is no way I am aware of (at this
point) to control processor at the subsystem level.

Any subsystem will do, but you have to tune it properly.  I like to set
up routing to push specific workloads into shared memory pools where I
can not control some of the performance.

None of this is hard once you understand the job routing on the system.

Questions from my boss:

How does one tell which subsystem has more allocated processing power
and memory?

And when running Tomcat, is there a particular subsystem that it should
be running in, for best performance?
