Power Systems for AIX IV: Performance Management

Tanfolyam célja
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 data for later analysis.

Each lecture is reinforced with extensive hands-on lab exercises which provide practical experience.
Define performance terminology

Describe the methodology for tuning 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

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



AIX 5L System Administration I: Implementation (AU14HU) (Q1314)

or

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:



AIX 5L Configuring TCP/IP (AU07) (Q1307)

or

TCP/IP for AIX Administrators (AN210)

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



System p LPAR and Virtualization I: Planning and Configuration (AU73HU)

or

Power Virtualization I: Implementing Dual VIOS and IVE (AN300)
