Advanced Tools for AIX Performance Analysis - AN52G

Training Summary
Develop the skills to use kernel traces, trace based utilities, and svmon to measure and analyze CPU, memory, and I/O performance issues on IBM systems running AIX. Reinforce each lecture during extensive hands-on lab exercises and get practical experience applicable to their performance management requirements.
You are expected to have extensive AIX skills. These skills can be obtained by attending the following courses:AIX Power Systems for AIX IV: Performance Management (AN510) or have the equivalent extensive AIX skills
4 Days
The audience for this training includes AIX technical support personnel, performance benchmark personnel, and AIX system administrators.
