or have equivalent LPAR skills

  • Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Configuration and Planning (AN11G)
  • Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization I: Implementing Virtualization (AN30G)

Course Objectives

  • Describe the effect of the IBM PowerVM virtualization features on performance and monitoring, such as:
    • Simultaneous multithreading (SMT), shared processors, multiple shared processor pools (MSPP), shared dedicated capacity, Active Memory Sharing (AMS), Active Memory Expansion (AME), Live Partition Mobility (LPM), and other virtualization features
  • Interpret the outputs of AIX performance monitoring and tuning tools used to view the impact of features such as SMT, shared processors, additional shared processor pool activations, and device virtualization.
  • Perform a Live Partition Mobility between two Power Systems servers
  • Configure and monitor Active Memory Expansion
