Increasing Throughput and Decreasing CPU Utilization

Depending on your company's computing environment, IBM Connect:Direct® for z/OS® provides a variety of methods to improve how efficiently your system is running, including the following:
  • The Compression Control Feature, which allows you to control the type of compression used between nodes
  • Extended compression for environments using slow lines and high CPU capacity
  • The zIIP exploitation feature, which takes advantage of System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) hardware to free up the general purpose processor resulting in potentially greater performance and cost-competitiveness when compared with less efficient and more complex distributed network solutions

In addition, if you are using IBM® Connect:Direct Secure Plus, there are other factors you should take under consideration to fine-tune performance in this area.
