The purpose of the AWT resource limit is to prevent utility jobs as a group from using too many AMP Worker Tasks (AWTs) and possibly impacting non-utility work. Users can define their own AWT resource limits or use the TASM defaults. In the Workload Designer portlet, AWT resource limits are in the Throttles view under the Resource Limits tab. The limits are expressed as a percentage of maximum AWTs per AMP.

TASM settings override the DBS Control general fields MaxLoadTasks, MaxLoadAWT, MLOADXUtilityLimits, MaxMLOADXTasks, and MaxMLOADXAWT.
