Site Hosting problems.

Posted in

I'm having some problems with my webhost. The server gets overloaded and then the site will not load.
 That is just one of the joys of web hosting. I'm wotking with them to see if we can get the problem fixed.

Maybe one day I can afford a dedicated server to run my sites but that is too expensive for me at this time.

Thanks for your patience!

I hear lot's of talk among friends and peers about companies moving workload off the mainframe or planning on shutting down the mainframe completely.
This is an informal poll to see what is happening.

Managing CICS performance with Workload Manager

Posted in

Workload Manager (WLM) has been a blessing for the mainframe. Before WLM there was Systems Resource Manager, which was full of cryptic parameters with vague interactions between them. Back in the '80s, a systems programmer might agonize for weeks before making a simple change, only to become reacquainted with the law of unintended consequences. WLM simplified things quite a bit, enabling the performance analyst to set goals and letting the system manage them.
