HPE NonStop Systems - Performance Analysis and Tuning

( Duration: 5 Days )

In HPE NonStop Systems - Performance Analysis and Tuning training course, delegates will learn to capture and analyze performance data, and adapt the adjustments to maximize performance and increase system utilization. Topics include Measure, Measure Subsystem Entities, queuing theory, TPM, RPM, ViewSys, Web ViewPoint practical approaches to system tuning, and using performance tools.

By attending HPE NonStop Systems - Performance Analysis and Tuning workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Apply the basic tuning principle
  • Analyze Measure's key entities and use Reload Analyzer
  • Apply several basic queuing theory formulas
  • Analyze disk cache-hit ratios and fragmentation
  • Calculate a volume’s true write cache-hit ratio
  • Analyze process priorities and process memory consumption
  • Identify processes with long $RECEIVE queues
  • Evaluate TCP process and server class parameters for best performance
  • Use Measure, SQLCI, and MXCI to analyze NonStop SQL/MP and NonStop SQL/MX performance
  • Identify positive and negative factors in application performance

  • Attend a training on HPE Nonstop Systems - Essentials or equivalent practical experience
  • Attend a training on HPE NonStop NB-series Server Administration or equivalent practical experience

  • System Managers, Technical Support, and Performance Analysis Personnel
  • Systems and Application Designers and Developers
