Today I have another z/VM APAR, that may reduce the system overhead for z/VSE guests, e.g. if you upgraded from the z/VM 6.3 1501 to the 1601 service level. The z/VM 6.3 1601 service level is required for z13s.
z/VM APAR VM65998: POLLING TOO FREQUENT WHEN CRYPTO IS INACTIVE
Error description: VM65716 altered the limits for frequency of polling for CRYPTO activity. The maximum polling interval allowed was decreased resulting in more frequent polling and higher system overhead when there is little to no CRYPTO activity.
I won't be in the office for a few days. Therefore I will post my next blog entry on Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
Have a good weekend. Enjoy the carnival.
