I would like to ask about difference between a 'work factor' and a 'speed factor' on WAS V8.5 ND.
In the V8.5 InfoCenter, the following passages are described.
If you have already specified a speed factor override, you do not need to configure a work factor override. For more information about speed factors, read about configuring work factors in multiple tier configurations.
From the description above, I guess a 'speed factor' is different from a 'work factor'.
But, there are no descriptions about a 'speed factor' in the InfoCenter, meanwhile there are some descriptions about a 'work factor'.
Can anyone tell me the difference between a 'work factor' and a 'speed factor' , please?
Thanks in advance.

Re: A difference between a 'work factor' and a 'speed factor'2012-11-05T08:57:30Z in response to SystemAdminHello, Allan
Thank you for your response.
I would like to ask two more questions.
I remember that there used to be two components in a work profiler, one of them is an alpha estimator to calculate work factors, the other is a kappa estimator to calculate speed factors.
Am I correct in assuming that there is the only alpha estimator in a work profiler in WAS V8.5 ?
I remember that a work profiler use to be a part of ARFM in WVE V6.0.
But in a WAS V8.5 adminconsole, we can look at "Work Profiler Controller" from Runtime Tasks menu.
Am I correct in assuming that a work profiler is separated from ARFM ?
