Power Systems for AIX Virtualization II: Advanced PowerVM and Performance – AN31G


Length – 36 Hours

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). This course does not cover application monitoring and tuning.
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.
Hands-on lab exercises reinforce each lecture and give the students practical experience.

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