WLM Balancing Initiators In Sysplex

(Originally posted 2005-03-09.)

Here’s the gist of an Info APAR on the subject: OA10114.

This documentation APAR was taken to enhance the information in the WLM Planning book to more clearly state that the intent of the WLM Managed Batch Initiator Balancing enhancement is not to evenly distribute the batch workload among systems in the sysplex nor to equalize the CPU utilization across systems in the sysplex. Rather, the intent is to improve the performance and throughput of batch workload in the sysplex by stopping initiators on systems with a CPU utilization over 95% and restarting them on a system which has more idle capacity.
