Performance impact of using contention resolution

Using default settings in ZIETrans, contention resolution can reduce 3270 screen-to-screen transmission delays by approximately 800 milliseconds (testing on an unconstrained, fast network). While this delay might be tolerable for casual Web users, contention resolution can prove beneficial for certain high velocity users and for high performance Web services.

Contention resolution has no direct impact on the ZIETrans server processor capacity requirements for any given workload.
