TECH CORNER

processing allows great speed up
on textual based analysis.

huge performance opportunity for
affected applications.

Performance Increases

Workload Diversity

The SMT capability introduced
in z13 will be available for
workloads running on the
Integrated Facility for Linux*
and the IBM System z* Integrated
Information Processor, providing
up to 30 percent increase in
computing throughput for
these engines. The new SIMD
instruction set is supported by
new compilers including Java*,
XL C/C++, COBOL and PL/I.
New and more efficient code
will be generated to exploit the
aforementioned vector processing
engines and improvements to
the traditional ones, resulting in

three character sizes of 8, 16
and 32 bit. New load and store
instructions efficiently handle
any alignment for strings with
terminating characters and
with known lengths. The new
string accelerator instructions
consist of find elements equal
or not equal to an input set of
characters and return either a
pointer to the first occurrence
or provide a comparison for
each element.
These instructions also have
a built-in comparison for string
terminating characters. A range
comparison instruction provides
the capability to determine
whether a string is alphabetical
or numeric in a single instruction.
Such focus on enhancing string

The discussion so far focuses
only of two features within
z13 processor core hardware.
Numerous other improvements
were made within the core itself,
in the processor subsystem, in the
supporting firmware and in the
corresponding middleware and OS
releases. They all strive to enable
the z Systems platform to be the
premiere choice of computing
environment capable of a vast
diversity of workloads, improving
their performance and providing
new and exciting capabilities
to enable clients to handle new
requirements of their business.
