I would like to know the following:
How IBM charges a client for using mainframe? (CPU Utilization or MIPS, rough dollar amount, prime time vs. non prime time and only based on production LPAR CPU usage or charge includes usage of developement and testing community of CPU as well?
Also we have ~750 MIPS mainframe in our client location and currently running on an average of 86% CPU utilization monthly basis. I would like to know how we can increase the MIPS or CPU utilization? Is it just by buying and adding more memory? How much does it cost to buy memory and how much each will add to MIPS and reduce CPU utilization?
