This parameter applies to z/OS only.
On a z/OS system, Model 204 zIIP support enables you to offload Model 204 work from regular processors to zIIP processors. AMPSUBZ specifies the number of active zIIP subtasks.
The value of AMPSUBZ must be less than or equal to the value of the NMPSUBZ parameter, which determines the number of zIIP subtasks attached during initialization.
- Do not set AMPSUBS greater than the number of central processors actually available.
- Do not set AMPSUBZ greater than the number of zIIP processors actually available.
If you set AMPSUBZ greater than 0, the X'02' bit of the XMEMOPT parameter (the default), must also be set.
