IBM i Performance Tuning - I: IBM i Structure, Tailoring and Basic Tuning
This classroom course of two days explains how to balance the workload on the IBM i system to ensure optimum performance. Specifically, this course explains how to manage workloads, measure system performance, and tune the operating system to meet processing requirements. Hands-on exercises give you the opportunity to use the system functions that are available for controlling workload and tuning system performance. Evaluation criteria presented in this course are based on the latest information available from IBM development labs.
This is an intermediate course is designed for data processing managers, programmers, and analysts.
