With the constant focus on controlling MIPS consumption on today’s mainframe, IT staffs are under pressure to get every cycle possible out of their System z® Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) specialty engines. Freeing up general computing capacity can help lower the overall total cost of computing for select data and transaction processing workloads.
Join us for this complimentary webcast as we discuss how DB2® for z/OS®, and related processes that run on System z, can take advantage of these zIIP engines. We will discuss two methodologies for maximizing offload potential: Ensure everything that is currently eligible is getting access to zIIP cycles and tune appropriately; and, other ways to increase potential offload. We will delve into both approaches, and examine the reality of current customer environments.
Join us after the webcast for a live question-and-answer session. This webcast will also be available for replay after the event.
