Well, I don't know about that. Maybe this contribution to the debate won't add much. But there must be at least one performance person out there who hasn't heard of the discussion around RMPTTOM. But would I want such a person amongst my readership? :-)
I'm not going to rehearse the whole story. It is pretty well understood that the old default was creaking somewhat.What I am pleased by is the way it happened...
Sitting on the sidelines of this one I saw.
You might argue that IBM should've been proactive in this matter. Personally, as I wasn't involved, I can only guess that SRM / WLM developers had a hunch that the default value of RMPTTOM would benefit from revisiting. And that a customer coming along and providing proof was the catalyst. That's genuinely a pure guess. In any case we do have to rely on input from the field and customers - to some degree. That's what makes things like conference conversations and newsgroups (such as MXG-L) so much fun. :-)
Of course, if you still want the technical guts do post a comment to that effect. But wait a while as I bone up on the issue. :-)
