BMC Performance Predictor for Mainframes
On the Workload Performance Changes report, what does the ratio in the Total Workload Response column indicate?
Red down arrows mean that the response time got worse, green up arrows indicate that response time got better.
So a ratio of 1.01, for instance would indicate that response time got worse by 1%.
A ratio of 0.98, for instance would indicate that response time got better by 2%
Total workload ratio indicates how the entire workload response time (all contributing components of the workload response time) changed compared to the baseline. Individual components of workload response time (like IO and CPU) can change differently and dramatically, both up and down in the same workload and by varying amounts, depending on the type of growth and overall activity.
