 APAR (Authorized Program Analysis Report)

Abstract

LIC-DB-OTHER-PERFM REDUCE CPU UTILIZATION FOR NUMERIC AND
DECIMAL OPERATIONS

Error Description

Many Numeric and Decimal operations use special methods to load
or store data. The implementation of these methods is not as    
optimal as possible for newer power processors. This can result
in extra CPU being required when executing the operations.      

Problem Summary

Please see the ERROR DESCRIPTION section.                      

Problem Conclusion

The special methods used by Numeric and Decimal operations to  
load or store data have been optimized for the newer power      
processors.
