KAU z/OS Performance: A Proposed Capacity Planning Estimation for zAAP Processors

Date Added: Dec 2010
Format: PDF

When configured with general purpose processors within logical partitions running z/OS, zAAPs may help increase general purpose processor productivity and may contribute to lowering the overall cost of computing for z/OS Java technology-based applications. zAAPs are designed to operate asynchronously with the general purpose processors to execute Java programming under control of the IBM Java Virtual Machine (JVM). This can help reduce the demands and capacity planning requirements on general purpose processors which may then be available for reallocation to other zSeries workloads.
