z/OS Java Encryption Performance Workload

This tool consists of a Java encryption application that allows a selection of the following parameters to determine the unique characteristics for any measurement. It then starts the application with the specified parameters.

  • number of threads
  • number of bytes to be encrypted
  • cipher used for data encryption
  • measurement duration

Each transaction generates a new key, the same key is not used over and over by all of the transactions. This way each transaction represents a client doing an entire bulk encryption sequence.

At the end of the measurement duration it provides information about the number of encryptions that were completed.
