Intermediate UBC configurations

System administrators can produce more starting conïfigurations by multiplying the values taken from some existing configuration by the same number, or by combining 2 configurations into a new one. UBC derived configuration examples shows 2 examples of such configurations, derived from existing examples.
Scaling configurations[edit]
Multiplying all the confguration numbers by a number greater than 1 produces a configuration for more “heavy” load or applications (see example 2A). Multiplying by positive numbers less than 1 produces “lighter” configuration. Configurations produced by multiplying an existing configuration by a number greater than 1 will be consistent if the original configuration was consistent.
Caution: lighter configurations produced by multiplying some configuration by a number less than 1 may happen to be inconsistent (see UBC consistency check for more details about configuration consistency).
Intermediate configurations[edit]
It is also possible to produce intermediate configurations between the given two, combining the numbers with coefficients:
where . Example labelled “0.5A+0.5B” (see UBC derived configuration examples) is such an intermediate configuration with ½.
Intermediate configurations produced by this rule will be consistent if the original configurations were consistent.
Caution: configurations produced by summing configurations with arbitrary coefficients (not giving 1 in sum or not all positive) may produce inconsistent configurations.
