What’s Going on in Your 4HRA?

How to limit the expansion of the 4-Hour Rolling Average of MSU Utilization (4HRA) by offloading to zIIP engines

One of the most CPU resource-intensive and highly used functions within every IT environment is sorting. Virtually every application needs to sort data, as well as copy information from one location to another. Utilization of zIIP engines for sort, copy, and compression provides an organization with additional processing capacity and can limit the expansion of the 4-Hour Rolling Average of LPAR Hourly MSU Utilization (4HRA) which will prevent an increase in Monthly License Charges (MLC).
