When you define a workload for a Linux SLES system, the Workload Designer portlet prompts you to choose a workload management method. Select one of the following workload management methods to give a workload its place in the resource consumption hierarchy:
- SLG (up to 5 optional tiers)
- Timeshare (Top, High, Medium, and Low tiers)
TASM uses these tiers to prioritize requests in a workload and, optionally, to control when they can begin to execute.
The following figure illustrates the priority hierarchy levels.
