    We enhanced the zIIP processing by increasing the amount of zIIP-eligible work automatically for database subtasks when

    •          A zIIP processor is enabled for this LPAR

    •          CA Datacom®/AD is at the maintenance level that is required to support zIIP in a user address space, and

    •          CA WA CA 7 Edition is locally connected to the CA Datacom®/AD MUF

    The ZIIP keyword on the INIT initialization statement does not control the ZIIP-enablement for database subtasks.

    Indeed we have been running with these enhancements in Production for a couple of months now. We are currently seeing 96% offload of Datacom/AD MUF CPU to zIIP, with 14% offload of CA 7 Online to zIIP with the latest PTFs.
