What is the performance improvement a z/VM customer might experience on the z196?
The performance ratios that a z/VM customer workload might experience when migrating to z196 from older processors will vary. For z/VM, a single workload was run for the LSPR which has characteristics similar to the HIGH relative nest intensity workload. However, customers may experience a range of performance. It is suggested that you consult the full range of LSPR workloads. For zVM workloads with lower memory or processor over-commitment, performance may fall in the range of the AVERAGE or LOW RNI workloads.
