This video demonstrates reporting into the interrelationships between several key metrics when group capping (LPAR based capping / soft capping) is in effect. These metrics include 4 hour rolling average, cap values, interval CPU consumption, MSUs available relative to the cap, and percentage of the interval WLM capping was in effect.

Reports demonstrated include:

  • Available Capacity for LPAR Groups (MSU)
  • Capacity Group MSU
  • Captured CP Use by WLM Importance Level (MSU)
  • Capacity Limit (Soft Cap) (MSU)
  • LPAR Capping and Usage (MSU)

No-obligation MLC Reduction Assessment

Software costs consistently dominate the budget for mainframe installations of which processor cache efficiency can have a significant role in reducing. However, according to our recent survey, 88% of sites have not optimized their processor cache utilization. Get in touch with one of our experts to determine if your site has potential MLC savings.
