'Guide' - Slide 3
How does performance of a particular image tend to degrade as
more images are added? Assuming that all the images are being
actually used, not sitting idle, how close is it to 1/N, where N
is the number of images?
Say you set up a couple thousand servers on an S/390, each one
of them serving up a website or something. How are they
addressed by the net? Can each have a separate IP address?
If so, do you really have 2,000+ NICs or what?
Can you allocate/control the CPU available to the LINUX VM?
If so, when you allocate capacity beyond one processor on the
S/390, does it require a SMP kernel, or does the VM still
appear as a uniprocessor? Is there a choice?
Is there a benefit?
