Power Systems Runing Linux - Analysis and Performance Tuning


DURACIÓN: 16 Hours (2 días)

Precio: €1.200,00


Learn advanced skills to measure, analyze, and tune Linux subsystems for optimal performance on IBM POWER7 Systems. Focus on the features that relate to performance of POWER7 systems. Focus on the features that relate to performance of the POWER7 processor, Linux kernel, and the special monitoring, configuring, and tuning needs of virtual servers. This course does not cover application monitoring and tuning.

Learn the latest Linux performance analysis and tuning tools and options, and take advantage of the new micro-partitioning and virtual features of the POWER7 server. Learn which tools to use, when, and how they have been enhanced for the latest POWER7 technology. These skills are invaluable to individuals responsible for the performance of a POWER7 server.

Reinforce each lecture with hands-on lab exercises to gain practical experience applicable to your performance management requirements.

If you are enrolling in a Self Paced Virtual Classroom or Web Based Training course, before you enroll, please review the Self-Paced Virtual Classes and Web-Based Training Classes on our Terms and Conditions page, as well as the system requirements, to ensure that your system meets the minimum requirements for this course.
