What's the matter, can't you read basic English?

What I'm talking about is that paper making false claims about db CPU use reduction by measuring application dialogue CPU use.

SAP is a multi-tier application-server based system. If you change the CPU usage in the database it works against, you change NOTHING in the CPU usage of the application server in which SAP is being executed. Note that I am talking about CPU Usage, the term used uin that paper. NOT overall wall clock time or duration.

The paper contains multiple examples near the end of " dialogue test cases" in which the " CPU usage" by SAP was reduced.

Yeah, I'm sure this was caused by DB2's compression. And the pope is not a Catholic.
