The number of active subtasks in a Model 204 multiprocessing online configuration (IBM z/OS systems only)

The value of AMPSUBS must be less than or equal to the value of the NMPSUBS parameter, which determines the number of subtasks attached during initialization. The AMPSUBS parameter allows the system manager to adjust the number of active offload subtasks without bringing down the online.

If AMPSUBS is less than NMPSUBS, the extra subtasks remain attached but do not perform offloaded work. If AMPSUBS is set to 0, the main task performs all the work and multiprocessing is effectively turned off.
