As of z/OS 2.5, WLM coefficient settings were removed; IBM made a good move in sunsetting an obsolete set of variables. I/O priority should follow. WLM I/O Priority has been around for a long time and is in use at many datacenters. A recent survey revealed many sites are not even clear on what the setting does. While the default is â€˜offâ€™ the recommendation in the WLM Planning manual is â€˜onâ€™. In this presentation we will demonstrate why this option should be turned off and perhaps removed entirely like the coefficients.
