Overview: This paper published by IBM describes that performance characteristics can differentiate a products usefulness to an enterprise. Two key metrics that are to be analysis of performance are elapsed clock/watch time needed to complete a task and the CPU time used to complete said task. This paper demonstrated some of the techniques that can used to achieve enhanced performance when using OpenPGP services. Clearly, all installations with CPACF should exploit this technology. Installations with multiple general CPUs and zAAP processors online can benefit from enabling of all of the parallel processing options for the OpenPGP support.
