Power Systems for AIX IV: Performance Management (AN51G)

Course Description Schedule
 

Who should attend

This is an advanced course for AIX technical support personnel, performance benchmarking personnel, and AIX system administrators.

Prerequisites

You are expected to have basic AIX system administration skills. These skills can be obtained by attending the following course:

  • Power Systems for AIX II: Implementation and Administration (AN120)

It is very helpful to have a strong background in TCP/IP networking to support the network performance portion of the course. These skills can be built or reinforced by attending:

  • TCP/IP for AIX Administrators (AN210)

It is also very helpful to have a strong background in PowerVM (particularly micropartitioning and the role of the virtual I/O server). These skills can be built or reinforced by attending:

  • Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization I: Implementing Virtualization (AN300)
  • Power Systems for AIX II: AIX Implementation and Administration (AN12G)
  • Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization I: Implementing Virtualization (AN30G)

Course Objectives

  • Define performance terminology
  • Describe the methodology for managing performance on a system
  • Identify the set of basic AIX tools to monitor, analyze, and tune a system
  • Use AIX tools to determine common bottlenecks in the Central Processing Unit (CPU), Virtual Memory Manager (VMM), Logical Volume Manager (LVM), internal disk Input/Output (I/O), and network subsystems
  • Use AIX tools to demonstrate techniques to tune the subsystems
