Where did that idea come from? It’s not true, and I don’t know how many versions (not to mention releases) have gone by since it was true, if ever.
I often have *SBSDs without assigning *BASE. No problem. I think a bit more detail is needed beyond simply saying “(you can’t change it)”. Perhaps it is worded to allow easy misinterpretation.
Thanks a lot.
In database class years ago, they said that one downside of setting the Max Act too high is that the DB optimizer looks at that to divide up the memory: if you have Max Act set to 500 and only really need 200, some of the database optimization gets written to disk, because it figures that there COULD be 500 jobs competing for the memory. Since they, I’ve heard that this is no longer the case and there really isn’t a downside to setting the Max Act too high, although I suspect that might be another case of incredibly fast hardware compensating for less-than-optimal tuning.]]>
