Advanced Tools for AIX Performance Analysis

( Duration: 4 Days )

In Advanced Tools for AIX Performance Analysis training course, learn 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.

By attending AIX Performance Analysis workshop, attendees will learn to:

  • Use the trace facility to collect data and create a trace report
  • Use the kernel trace facilities to analyze CPU performance issues
  • Describe causes and impacts of high context switching rates
  • Identify what causes a thread to block and what causes a later wake up
  • Explain the relationship between the output of svmon -G, svmon -P, and svmon -S
  • Calculate the amount of memory in use on the system
  • Explain the relationship between svmon, vmstat, and ipcs output
  • Categorize the memory in use on the system by segment type
  • Identify which processes are using the most memory
  • Identify which segments are using the most paging space
  • Describe the characteristics of asynchronous I/O, synchronous I/O, direct I/O and concurrent I/O
  • Identify if the expected type of I/O is being executed
  • Tune asynchronous I/O

  • Extensive AIX skills.

The audience for this course includes AIX technical support personnel, performance benchmark personnel, and AIX system administrators.
