Question:

What is the optimum dispatch priority for CA PDSMAN?

Environment:
z/OS
Answer:

Due to the performance impact that CA PDSMAN offers and the intercepts utilized the best practice recommendation would be to set the dispatch priority the same as you would JES or MVS started tasks. In most environments this would be "SYSSTC". 

This is typically labeled as Service Class by IBM.
