Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization II: Advanced PowerVM and Performance

CODE: ZL1_AN31

DURÉE: 4 Jours

PRIX H.T.: €3 985,00

Description

You will learn how to implement advanced IBM PowerVM features, such as Active Memory Sharing, Active Memory Expansion, shared dedicated processors, multiple shared processor pools, and Live Partition Mobility. Additionally, you will learn skills to implement, measure, analyze, and tune PowerVM virtualization features for optimal performance on IBM Power Systems servers. This course focuses on the features that relate to the performance of POWER6 and POWER7 processors, AIX, and the special monitoring, configuring, and tuning needs of logical partitions (LPARs). This course does not cover application monitoring and tuning. You will also learn AIX performance analysis and tuning tools that help an administrator take advantage of shared processors and other virtualization features of the IBM Power Systems servers.

This course provides lectures and hands-on labs in a face-to-face classroom setting. The course is also offered in a live virtual classroom environment (Instructor Led Online - ILO) with hands-on labs: Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization II: AdvPowerVM and Performance (ILO) (AX310).

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.

Objectifs

  • 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
  • Configure the Suspend and Resume and Active Memory Sharing features available with the Virtual I/O Server
  • Implement the deduplication feature of Active Memory Sharing

Informations supplémentaires

Prior to enrolling, IBM Employees must follow their Division/Department processes to obtain approval to attend this public training class. Failure to follow Division/Department approval processes may result in the IBM Employee being personally responsible for the class charges.

GBS practitioners that use the EViTA system for requesting external training should use that same process for this course. Go to the EViTA site to start this process: https://b25acidbw07.con.can.ibm.com/BCS/BCSVTEnrl.nsf/Billing%20Info?OpenPage

Once you enroll in a GTP class, you will receive a confirmation letter that should show:

  • The current GTP list price
  • The 20% discounted price available to IBMers. This is the price you will be invoiced for the class.
