Hello All,

I am new to Datastage MVS and mainframes.

I wanted to know what role does the number of MIPS play in executing the programs generated by MVS.

I can understand that more the number of MIPS more will be the speed of execution, but what i would like to know here is that what are the minimum number of MIPS required of datastage MVS.

given a scenario,

If I want to process a batch of 3 million records everyday (12 hours to be more precise), can any one help me to know how i can estimate the number of minimum MIPS i will require to process such kind of load in 12 hours .

Thanks in advance
