Power Systems for AIX - Virtualization II: Advanced PowerVM and Performance Global Knowledge Egypt

Learn to implement advanced PowerVM features such as Active Memory Sharing, Shared Dedicated Processors, Multiple Shared Processor Pools, N_Port Virtualization, and Remote Live Partition Mobility.

This course focuses on the features that relate to the performance of the POWER6 processor, AIX 6.1, and the special monitoring, configuring, and tuning needs of logical partitions (LPARs). This course does not cover application monitoring and tuning.

You will learn skills to implement, measure, analyze, and tune PowerVM virtualization features for optimal performance on IBM System p servers.

You will also learn about the AIX 6.1 performance analysis and tuning tools that enable an administrator to take advantage of the Micro-Partitioning and other virtualization features of the System p servers.

Hands-on lab exercises reinforce each lecture and give the students practical experience.

Target Audience:

This course is for anyone responsible for implementing and managing virtualization features on a System p server including: AIX technical support individuals System administrators Systems engineers System Architects
