    Course Overview

    Overview
    Develop the skills to use kernel traces, trace based utilities, and svmon to measure and analyze CPU, memory, and I/O performance issues on IBM systems running AIX. Reinforce each lecture during extensive hands-on lab exercises and get practical experience applicable to their performance management requirements.
    Audience
    The audience for this training includes AIX technical support personnel, performance benchmark personnel, and AIX system administrators.

    • (Optional) Exercise 7: Advanced I/O topics - II (Part 3)
    Objectives
    • Use the trace facility to collect data and create a trace report
    • Use the kernel trace facilities to analyze CPU performance issues
    • Describe causes and impacts of high context switching rates
    • Identify what causes a thread to be blocked and later woken up
    • Explain the relationship between the output of svmon -G, svmon -P, and svmon -S
    • Calculate the amount of memory in use on the system
    • Explain the relationship between svmon, vmstat, and ipcs output
    • Categorize the memory in use on the system by segment type
    • Identify which processes are using the most memory or paging space
    • Describe the characteristics of asynchronous I/O, synchronous I/O, direct I/O, and concurrent I/O
    • Identify if the expected type of I/O is being executed
    • Tune asynchronous I/O
