On a SLES 10 TASM system, an enforcement priority (EP) is a label given to assign weights for the queries running in a workload.
  1. Edit or create a ruleset.
  2. From the ruleset toolbar, click Workloads.
  3. Select a workload or create one.
  4. Under Enforcement Priority, select an option for the type of queries you expect to run in this workload:
    • Tactical queries are short, critical queries with defined service level goals. They are typically single or few-AMP queries or all-AMP queries that consume less than 1 CPU-second per node.
    • Priority queries are important and have higher priority than most other work.
    • Normal queries are the average priority work running on the system.
    • Background queries run for work that does not have a response-time requirement.
  5. Click Save.
