Performance tuning and capacity planning for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Red Hat Performance Tuning: Linux in Physical, Virtual, and Cloud (RH422) teaches senior Linux® system administrators the methodology of performance tuning. This course discusses system architecture with an emphasis on understanding its implications on system performance, performance adjustments, open source benchmarking utilities, networking performance, and tuning configurations for specific server use cases and workloads.

This course is based on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 8.


  • Analyze and tune for resource-specific scenarios
  • Applying tuning profiles with the tuned tool
  • Tune in virtual environments (hosts and guests)
  • Trace and profile system events and activities
  • Tune resource limits and utilization using systemd-integrated cgroups
  • Gather performance metrics and benchmarking data

As a result of attending this course, you should be able to obtain, analyze, and interpret system performance metrics, then use these metrics to help increase cost effectiveness, maximize application performance, and make better decisions about investment in hardware or cloud resources.

Target Audience

Senior Linux system administrators responsible for maximizing resource utilization through performance tuning.

Additional Information

To attend any Red Hat course or exam, you will need to provide us with your unique Red Hat Network ID. If you do not have a Red Hat Network ID you can create one online here.
