For China IBM i customer TaiKang. Their business have seize wait for group USRP when jobs do many new objects create action

Just like 2015 CPS 7WMTVZ told, customer find their application job hold exclude seize for group user profile when do QSYCHONR (CHGOBJOWN) or QSYRVAUT (REVOKE OBJECT AUTHORITY COMMAND PROCESSING PROGRAM) action, which is triggered by QUSRCRTUS (create user space), QWCCCRVC (create data area app) or QMHQCRTQ (CREATE DATA QUEUE CPP) function. The exclude seize makes many other jobs wait to get group profile's share seize. Customer hope IBM i can enhance this restrict from design level.
