The importance (or priority) value assigned to a workload element relative to the other workload elements at the same level of the workload hierarchy. For example, given two workload Applications, where one is a production, high-availability application and the other is a maintenance application, you would assign the first a higher importance value than the second. Oracle Expert uses this value to ensure that higher priority Applications, Business Units, Transactions, and Requests are favored over less important ones during the optimization process. The range of importance values is from 1 to 9999, with 1 being the lowest importance. See also relative importance.
A flag you can set on a message in Outlook to indicate the importance of the mail. Also used in other contexts to indicate the priority of a document, mail, or other issue. barbarchisummaa View
