z/OS Java Encryption Performance WorkloadThis 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.
