Benefits of putting the Swami's experience to work for you
Typical environments have seen 20 to 40 percent reduction in CPU and I/O activity for critical jobsteps and on-line transactions. Although individual results will vary, the reductions in system resource load make more capacity available for other system needs immediately. In many instances, these improvements can extend the useful life of your installed system or allow the system to accommodate expected growth while delaying the need for a system processor upgrade.
