We all know that money doesn’t grow on trees. To the contrary, we are forced to operate with scarce and even shrinking financial resources. Reducing costs is a necessity when it comes to meeting tight budgets.

What if there was a way to reduce your company’s IBM software license fees—resulting in thousands of dollars or more in monthly savings—while improving batch performance? Well, there is: it’s called ThruPut Manager.

How does it work?
ThruPut Manager starts by monitoring your company’s rolling 4-hour average (R4HA) of CPU usage—the key factor in determining software license fees under the sub-capacity pricing model. The installation can then be configured to take action at specified capacity levels.

By setting the maximum value for each capacity level, ThruPut Manager will reduce how much CPU is allocated to lower importance workloads, while simultaneously allowing important workloads to run better. Basically, the work is spread around—during times of high CPU usage, ThruPut Manager keeps the R4HA in check by prioritizing the high importance workloads and deferring the low importance workloads to periods of less CPU utilization.
