Allow GeoMirror AA macro's to be tunable via ASPSSN management

Over the past year or so, we've had a few macros that have been created for Geographic Mirror via PTFs:
1) window size:
GETDATAPORTRECEIVEBUFFERSIZE and SETDATAPORTRECEIVEBUFFERSIZE
2) directory sync tasks:
GETFULLSYNCDIRINFOMODE and SETFULLSYNCDIRINFOMODEASYNC and RESETFULLSYNCDIRINFOMODESYNC
3) sync worker tasks:
GETSYNCDATAMODE and SETSYNCDATAMODE and RESETSYNCDATAMODE

Is there any chance these could become actual geomirror session settings? Future release? Just seems like these could be helpful settings for a user to be aware of, and be able to tune. Particularly the TCP window size macro.

What would actually be nice is a way for these values to somehow be "sensed/determined" by geomirror, and set based on system resources/comm environment,


Use Case:

Any user with a GeoMirror configuration the experiences degraded performance on their Production node due to inadequate network configuration.

    The PowerHA team does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed. These parameters are not intended for general use, and should only be used when directed by IBM support.
