The server real-time slice allotment in milliseconds for CPU-bound users

This parameter controls the time a CPU-bound user is allowed to remain in a server area without performing terminal I/O. Decreasing this parameter can increase server I/O substantially; do this only if there are very few servers or if Model 204 is executing on a heavily overloaded machine. Increasing the parameter can reduce server I/O, but it also can result in non-CPU bound users waiting excessively for server availability.

Do not set his parameter less than twice CPUSLICE.
