IRPCOUNTV is a system parameter that establishes the upper limit to which IRPCOUNT can be automatically increased by the system. If this parameter is set too low, system performance can be adversely affected because IRPCOUNTV cannot be used for nonpaged pool requests.

A physical memory penalty of 1 percent results for any unused growth space (1 longword for every 3 unused intermediate request packets).
