How are the newest mainframe processor architectures affecting your z/OS mainframe software costs? How can you execute all your transactions and jobs with fewer MSU’s and no performance hit? Join one of the leading MLC reduction experts in the country for a focus on processor cache optimization, also touching on some additional MLC reduction methods.
This session will:
- Challenge some long held assumptions about CPU utilization and processor cache optimization
- Cover metrics (such as RNI) and a real world case study that reduced peak MSU’s by more than 20%
- Demonstrate how a modernization of your SMF/RMF interpretation helps achieve efficiency and performance objectives
No-Obligation MLC Assessment
IntelliMagic is offering a free assessment to identify MLC reduction opportunities in your mainframe environment. Several of our assessments have revealed likely 7-figure annual MLC reduction savings.
Controlling MLC with Capping
‘Soft capping’ is a common technique to control software costs based on the R4HA. IBM offers two ‘flavors’: Defined Capacity (DC) and Group Capacity (GC).
MLC Pricing 101: Tailored Fit, Sub-capacity, and Capping
With the recent IBM announcement about Tailored Fit Pricing, it seems an opportune time to discuss the current pricing methods. In this first blog I’ll cover sub-capacity pricing.
