Mainframe

With a mainframe, it’s necessary to have priority-controlled access to operating resources, since several different applications use the computer (or computer network) at the same time, and therefore a way of distributing resources (workload) in accordance with users’ wishes has to be implemented. The division of this workload and the assignment of operating resources within computer systems is handled by the workload manager, a key component of the operating system.
