Duration 5 Days

No hands on lab environment for the TOD course format.This Oracle Solaris 11 Performance Management course introduces you to performance tuning principles. Learn to monitor utilities and use tuning tools for the Oracle Solaris 11 Operating System.Learn To:Use the Oracle Solaris 11 OS and third-party tools to analyze performance.View and set tunable parameters for the global or a non-global zone.Monitor and report on process and thread activity.Modify CPU scheduling and virtual memory operations.Describe system caches and system buses.Tune I/O, the ZFS File System and network subsystems.Monitor System EfficiencyThis course will also review Solaris subsystems and utilities to monitor system efficiency. These subsystems include: kstat, sar, vmstat, iostat, netstat, mpstat, nfsstat, ps, prstat, pmap, the proc tools, truss, dtrace, the DTrace Toolkit, cpustat, cputrack, swap, lockstat and mdb. Optimize PerformanceThis course also includes a section on optimizing system resource and tuning Solaris virtualization. Review content related to key Cloud performance technologies, like Solaris Integated Load Balancer and data flows control. Hands-On PracticeThis Oracle Solaris 11 Performance Management course includes robust hands-on practices. During these labs, you'll learn to apply best practices and techniques to reinforce critical thinking and skills when executing performance management tasks.
