Performance Tuning Stupidity

Performance Tuning Stupidity

One of the most neglected and misused work management tasks for a System i is performance tuning. The primary cause is the misinformation that is being spread about the "art" of tuning. Performance tuning is not about making a system run faster, but balancing the workload according to the requirements being placed on your System i server.

This session exposes the myths and uncovers the truth of performance tuning. Basic performance tuning skills are relatively straightforward with an improved understanding of work management. Add to that an easy tuning methodology, and you will leave this session with a process to apply to your system - with the end result being a more balanced System i workload.
