Hello Chris,

We have two power 8's that are single core and we use less than 10% CPU. They are dedicated to customer transaction processing. They are located in CA and TX.

Then we have our main IBM i at corp that runs all the back office stuff. It is also a single core power 9 system. Finally in the TX location is another power 9 that is the mirror of the corp one.

May I ask for an estimate about workload? Active users, how often they do something, etc?

All 4 are only single core systems. Well they have more than one core but IBMi is only licensed for 1 core.

Do you know of the other cores are spinning idly and still needlessly convert electrical power into heat like the P5/P6, or if the firmware actually puts them to "sleep" to conserve power?

And they run circles around our multi server / multi core / dual CPU SQL and IIS server that run other applications.

I've heard that before, but I lack first-hand experience. :-)

:wq! PoC
