The relationship between MSU and MIPS is determined by IBM. The ratio varies by machine as well as number of engines on the machine -- there is no one single value, not even for a given machine.
but can we say how many MIPS are consumed??
The answer to your question is ZERO. MIPS is not a measurement that can be applied to an individual job, as it has meaning only when talking about the entire processor -- disk drives, CPU, tape drives, channels, and everything else. Do not think a MIPS number has meaning for anything other than an entire machine -- and IBM doesn't even use MIPS numbers for their machines any more so why be using an obsolete concept?
