Soft Capping and ThruPut Manager
Automatically defer or constrain low priority batch
This paper introduces IBM’s Sub-Capacity Pricing, hard and soft capping, and the Rolling Four-Hour average (R4HA), as well as an overview of the Automated Capacity Management feature of ThruPut Manager, which can automatically defer or constrain low priority batch to lower the monthly peak R4HA and result in significant software savings while maintaining or improving workload performance.
