I wonder the same thing about this (activation groups) and some other
similar things that we learned over the years.
I've never noticed (V5R4, Model 520) a new, named activation group
Another truism that makes the rounds is that a Load All subfile takes
longer than a page-at-a-time subfile. Undoubtedly this is true, but is it
noticeable? I've discarded page-at-a-time and use strictly load all
(haven't had to worry - yet - about the 9,999 record limit). I've loaded
+5000 records in sub-second response time. On our old iSeries (720) I never
tried that. On a B10 I'm pretty sure it would have been noticeable, but
always did page-at-a-time until a few years ago so I have no comparisons. I
just know that on the newer hardware, it is perceptually not noticeable.
