Introduction

With more workload being moved to zIIP processors, CA Datacom has optimized its processing to take advantage of this. This document will provide links to resources to help set up the Multi-User Facility (called MUF) for zIIP processor usage.

Instructions: 

The best way to learn about CA Datacom and zIIP processors is by directing you toward several resources about zIIP that were developed for CA Datacom version 12.0. The processing in the CA Datacom software has been enhanced in versions 14.0 and 15.0, so there are resources for the various versions listed. However, as this feature was introduced in version 12.0, refer to the version 12.0 resources below for introductory materials.
