Martin, very true. <br /> Especially that todays systems are way more dynamic. The extreme I have seen was an RMF report where almost every 5 mins the WLM policy changed. (Notice I am not saying this is good, but it happens.) <div>&nbsp;</div> BTW: Great post. <div>&nbsp;</div> Regards <br /> Thomas

Thanks Thomas! I don't think disrupting a WLM policy by changing it that often is a good idea: WLM relies on history. In the distant past the whole history got thrown out at a policy change. I believe it's somewhat better now but I doubt it's totally undisruptive. Anyone want to comment on that aspect? <br /> Also I'd be interested in examples, counterarguments and even "Platform XYZ has good SMF-like instrumentation".

Martin, <br /> yes. Agreed and that is exactly what I have seen in the RMF report. When there was more than one interval in the report (withour policy change) the first interval was typically the weakest one. ;) <div>&nbsp;</div> Cheers <br /> Thomas

You might just've won The Apprentice, Thomas. :-)
