Description

OVERVIEW

Develop the skills to measure, analyze, and tune common performance issues on IBM POWER systems running AIX6.

Learn about performance management concepts and techniques and how to use of basic AIX tools to monitor, analyze, and tune an AIX6 system. The course covers how virtualization technologies such as the PowerVM environment and workload partitions affect AIX performance management. Monitoring and analyzing tools discussed in this course include vmstat, iostat, sar, tprof, svmon, filemon, netstat, lvmstat, and topas. Tuning tools include schedo, vmo, ioo, no, and nfso.

The course also covers how to use Performance Problem Reporting (PerfPMR) to capture a variety of performance d…
