Power Systems for AIX - Advanced PowerVM & Performance

( Duration: 5 Days )

In Power Systems for AIX - Advanced PowerVM & Performance training course, you will learn how to implement advanced IBM PowerVM features, such as Active Memory Sharing, Active Memory Expansion, shared dedicated processors, and multiple shared processor pools. Additionally, you will learn skills to implement, measure, analyze, and tune PowerVM virtualization features for optimal performance on IBM Power Systems servers. This course focuses on the features that relate to the performance of IBM POWER processor-based systems, AIX, and the special monitoring, configuring, and tuning needs of logical partitions (LPARs). You will also learn AIX performance analysis and tuning tools that help an administrator take advantage of shared processors and other virtualization features of the IBM Power Systems servers.

By attending Power Systems for AIX - Advanced PowerVM & Performance workshop, attendees will learn to:

  • Describe the effect of the IBM PowerVM virtualization features on performance and monitoring, such as:
    • Simultaneous multithreading (SMT), shared processors, virtual processors, multiple shared processor pools (MSPP), shared dedicated capacity, Active Memory Sharing (AMS), Active Memory Expansion (AME)
  • Interpret the outputs of AIX performance monitoring and tuning tools used to view the impact of features such as SMT, shared processors, additional shared processor pool activations, and device virtualization
  • Configure and monitor Active Memory Expansion
  • Configure the Suspend and Resume and Active Memory Sharing features
  • Implement the deduplication feature of Active Memory Sharing

  • The LPAR prerequisite skills can be met by attending one of the following classes or you can have equivalent LPAR skills:

The Power Systems for AIX - Advanced PowerVM & Performance class is ideal for:

  • Anyone responsible for the system administrative duties implementing and managing virtualization features on a System p server. The audience for this training includes the following: AIX technical support individuals System administrators Systems engineers System architects
