iSeries and AS/400 Work Management
Author: Chuck Stupca
Written by one of IBM's leading authorities on work management, this book shows you how to modify IBM-provided defaults to produce an efficient runtime environment for your workload. What you don't know about work management can hurt you, so this book explains it all in terms that are easy to understand and implement.
While the iSeries and AS/400 can be used with the default environment shipped with them, they usually need to be customized for each installation. Even simple tasks such as adding applications, modifying the initial menu, and allowing a non-intelligent workstation to have multiple jobs active affect how work starts and runs on the system. Complex tasks such as changing the attributes of subsystems, pools, job queues, and routing entries affect your system's efficiency and usability even more. All of those modifications involve changes to the default work management parameters. Too often those changes are not made correctly, and the result is a less-efficient or nonfunctioning system rather than a finely tuned one. This book explains how iSeries and AS/400 work management actually works so that you can improve response time, manage workloads more efficiently, and maximize the performance of your IBM midrange computer.
