Measuring performance

We recently upgraded our mainframe and I’m sure mgmt will be asking me for statistics on how well the databases are doing.

Looking at the shutdown stats, what is the best way to determine this?

number of commands / cpu is what I came up with. Can anyone else add to this ?

CPU/command is not a straight forward measure as you need to factor in the change in machine type and number of CPU’s available. If you are using on IBM processor the LSPR web page will help with this (http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/lspr/zSerieszOS16.html). From experience I have found the workload profile for ADABAS most closely matches the CB-L benchmark (previously CBW2). Hope this helps.
