  • 1. EXTFILE and field names
    I don't know why I can't figure this out, but maybe someone can set me straight. I know ho to use EXTFILE and EXTMBR, but then how can I specify the field names on that file? I want to build a generic program that will read a file that is passed into it and then look for pieces of information in the first record of that file. All of the examples that I have found that use EXTFILE stop at the OPEN command and I need to see what happpens after the open. I would like to do an Eval using a substring of that data. What am I missing? TIA! Jeff Wilson IT Consultant
  • 2. Best place to put application files under IFS/QSHELL
    I created some business logic written in Java that will excecute on the AS/400 and be called by RPG programs. The Java class requires some data files and will also create new data files. I need to store these files somewhere within IFS such that the path will be the same in our test/prod environments. For example /etc/??? or /QIBM/...?? Does anyone have a recommendation or know of the 'standard' place for storeing application configuration files and data files for an 'application level' of access (not user based). Thanks, A.

  • 4. iSeries Linux Guest Partition
    Hello, I am not sure what newsgroup would be the best for this message, but I have an iSeries (AS400) Linux question. Has anyone out there increased the size of the NWSSTG, and then resized the partitions in Linux? I was able to resize the NWSSTG by copying it to a new one but entering a larger the size.. I can not figure out if there is a way to expand the partitions. I do not want to create another mount point. That just seams very messy to be adding mount points every time I decide to expand my storage space. I have also tried different open source tools like "Parted" to try and accomplish this but I am having issues with Reiserfs..... I have used "cp -a" to just copy it to a different partition, but this is also messy when it comes to getting it to boot at times. There must be a grand solution to what I am trying to do. Thank You, Jeff P.

lpar processor addition question

Postby z » Fri, 14 May 2004 00:45:30 GMT

hi, easy question for someone (i hope)...

we've done several hardware upgrades to our 820 and lpar's for memory and
other resources and the additional hardware is just tagged as new resources
and available to be deployed across our lpar's.

my question is, on the addition of a 2nd processor, is the new processor
treated the same way as memory?  ie, its just an available resource in the
"bucket" that can be assigned to the lpar's?  or does a processor upgrade
require you to have to redo your lpar set up?

thanks, jim

Hi Jim

It's just like the memory.....it comes available as "not assignes
hardware"...You can use it rigth away..IF youre MIN/MAX values are set right
in the past. Otherwise you have to set them right ...and IPL the primary.

Good luck

2.LPAR Virtual LAN Routing Question


I hope that somebody can help with this problem! We have an iSeries 270
which is LPAR'd and has two partitions. P0, P1

P0 has a physical network card with the address It also has a

P1 has a virtual network card with the address

So, is it possible for the primary partition to route between the

If so, what has to be considered in order to separate the 2 companies

4.question about multi core processors

   I'm thinking of doing a processor upgrade in the next couple of 
months.  Currently I have a single core Athlon BE running at about 2.6 
GHz.  I've got a fairly new (~ 5 months old) motherboard that is AM2+.

   I do a lot of video compression into h.264/mpeg4 using Nero Recode, 
and occasionally WinAVI Video Converter.

   I read recently that if you are encoding a single file, multi cores 
don't help you out at all.  Is this true?  Supposedly, you only get a 
benefit if you are encoding multiple files, because then the other cores 
can each tackle one of the files.

   I had always assumed that if you have 4 cores, each core would 
somehow do 1/4 of the work encoding a single file, and the computer 
would "distribute" the processing chore between the cores, allowing you 
to get done maybe 3 times as fast as a single core computer would. 
However, I've been told that is not the case.

   If this is true, then the multiple core upgrade would only very 
occasionally help me out at all, and perhaps I should just stick with my 
current single core.

   Anyone have further information on this?  Thanks!

5.Newbie questions about matched pairs of processors

I have some basic questions about matched pairs of Intel processors.

1.  Is it enough that the stepping numbers (sSpec numbers) are 
the same,  or do you need something more?

2.  Can you tell just by looking at two chips if they are a matched

3.  I always hear about matched pairs of Xeon and Pentium III's,  but
not so much about other chips.  Does anyone care about matched pairs of
Celeron 1.4 Ghz chips? Are there dual processor motherboards that take
those chips?
