Hi John

I suggest you run database monitors from Navigator over the jobs in question, on each system - then do the Visual Explain thing - you'll be able to see what optimization choices were made, and maybe see a difference there.

Good luck, and come on back with the results, then we can speak to this better, I think.

We have a CL program that calls a java program to read modify and

Both machines let's call them F and S (Fast and Slow)

They are configured the same (except slight difference in memory and
disk storage see below)

Both running IBM I 7.1

Both at the same PTF levels for both the SS1 and JV1

Both have similar memory

Both have similar System ASP used (10 % vs 23%)

Both have Java Version =

java version "1.6.0"

JCL - 20140704_01



System F response is instant

System S Response is 20 seconds

We are seeing something similar with our CL program

System F= 5-10 seconds

System S=60-80 seconds

The "JAVA *VERSION" execution is so different I don't think it is
anything in our CL or java program.

I keep comparing the 2 and can't find a difference other than the
performance of Java being so vastly different

What could cause a variance of the simple execution of "JAVA *VERSION"

Any idea or suggestions on where to I can look?

Thanks in advance for any assistance
