The CPU time slice increment associated with aging promotion

This parameter is multiplied by the value of the multiplier and then added to the user's current CPU time slice allotment, subject to SLICEMAX. Increasing this parameter causes a user's CPU time slice immunity to increase faster with aging.

Although increasing AGESLICE increases a user's waiting time, it also allows a CPU-bound user more time once that user is running. This increases throughput but reduces response time.

It is appropriate to increase AGESLICE when the values of AGESCAN or AGEINTVL are increased. Never set AGESLICE to a value greater than SLICEMAX. AGESLICE has no effect unless the AGESCAN parameter value is nonzero.
