How to determine the CPW of my AS/400

Hi All,

This isn't a programming question, but I figure the AS/400 topic is my best bet.

I'm looking to compare the run time of a job on my machine with the same job running on a customer's machine.

Mine is a model 170, and the customer's is a model 720.

I know how to determine the memory and DASD in each - but what I don't know is the speed / capacity of the CPU.  I think what I need to know is the CPW of each.

Can anyone help me determine what it would be in each case? Or any other valid measurements of CPU speed / capacity on each machine?

Please don't get too technical, I'm still a bit of an AS/400 newbie.

First, you have to know your model and your processor feature

Then, based on the information, check on the table, the CPW for your system (system handbook)
please let me know your system model if you don't have the table

sorry, i didn't get that you mentioned your model is 170 and 720
you only need to check the QPRCFEAT system value, then you can check the CPW on the table of system overview in this:
