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

This advanced 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

Prerequisite

You should have taken:

  • Power Systems for AIX I: LPAR Planning and Configuration (AN11G) or
  • Power Systems for AIX – Virtualization I: Implementing Virtualization (AN30G)

or have equivalent LPAR skills

Expected Duration
5 day

Description

You will learn how to implement advanced IBM PowerVM features, such as Active Memory Sharing, Active Memory Expansion, shared dedicated processors, multiple shared processor pools, and Live Partition Mobility. 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 POWER6 and POWER7 processors, 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.
