Only down to one full processor however and given the size of one processor these days, that's still one great big bunch of horsepower. Great for IBM Software Group licensing, not so much (yet) for work management.

A great requirement would be to have the workload group go as granular as a LPAR, 0.10 or even 0.01 of a processor. I don't know if IBM is working on this or if it will require a hardware modification (meaning the processor supports it) but it will be great to have.

Hi,
If you happen to have a large multiprocessor partition and also running at 7.1 you can have a look at Workload Groups which limits a job or subsystem to resources allocated to the WG.
