May I know it is a good idea to IPL the AS/400 system weekly?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I was always told it should be done at least once a month.
I never used to do it but once every 6 months or so.
Then I stumbled into scheduling an IPL, so now I do it every Sunday at 4am.
If no one accesses the system at that hour ….. What can it hurt?

    Hi, During an IPL the machine does a lot of "cleanin up" that doesn't happen during day to day operation. This helps keep your machine optimized and can reclaim storage that has been temporarily used by the system. Look at it like a defrag on a PC. Every now and then it helps. Like Mrnaturi said, if you've got time in the weekend when the system's not being used, then why not? You should make sure that your startup program starts everything you need after an IPL - otherwise you'll need to start things manually on a monday morning. Regards, Martin Gilbert.
