Designate resources to the QUSRWKR subsystem

I'd like to allocate more resources/memory to the QUSRWKR subsystem. Can you tell me the best way to achieve this?

The first thing you need to do is find out what storage pools QUSRWRK is currently using. The default is for it to use *BASE. Use the DSPSBSD command, and take option two for pool definitions. Once you have the name of the pool(s), use the WRKSHRPOOL command to adjust the storage the various pools use. Most of the pools can have the storage size increased directly, although *BASE is an exception. To add storage to that pool, you need to take storage away from another pool. The reason for this is that *BASE always includes the "left-over" storage on the system.
