PCS (BS2000/OSD)

Distributes the work across BS2000 system resources for various categories and tasks according to user requirements.

Current version: V3.1

PCS distributes the work performed by the resources of a computer system amongst the various categories and tasks in accordance with user requirements (e.g. response time / throughput optimization). 


This makes for:
 
  • efficient use of the configuration, even when the load is complex and varying, 
  • automatic recognition of situations in which the operating behavior deviates from predefined criteria, 
  • automatic initiation of measures to keep the operating behavior at its optimum.
Functions:

  • Categorizing of loads (up to 16), according to their characteristics. 
  • Allocation of resources for: 
    - service categories according to the system administrator's specifications,
    - graduated handling of categories in concurrent situations,
    - preferential task treatment in categories based on information priority. 
  • Influencing the response time behavior by specifying dilation factors. 
  • Transparency for the system administrator via SHOW command information on current service allocation and parameter sets used.
