Enhanced MIDAW Capabilities - the new release includes advanced functionality that makes it easier to gain additional CPU efficiencies from Modified Indirect Data Address Word (MIDAW) capabilities.
With this release, users will achieve substantial reductions in elapsed time and CPU time through SyncSort's ability to offload certain sort processes to a zIIP processor and SyncSort's effective use of the z9's(TM) MIDAW facility.
These performance gains derive from exploitation of the z9's(TM) MIDAW I/O technology -- reducing channel, director, and control unit overhead -- and the System z9(TM) Integrated Information Processor (zIIP), both of which are available on IBM System z9(TM) Enterprise Class (z9-109) and IBM System z9(TM) Business Class processors.
