z/VM provides the ability for a system administrator to control a user's share of the system CPU, main storage, and paging capacity. However, this control is static. There is no method for automatic, dynamic share adjustment to balance resource use with respect to other users or to achieve a set goal. In addition, z/VM provides no means for adjusting a user's I/O priority as compared to other users or to reach a goal.
