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.
  • Evaluate system workloads.
  • Assess system performance.
  • Determine the cause of system performance issues.
  • Configure system resource for best performance.
  • Optimize software running on UltraSPARC CMT technology.
  • Tune the Solaris 11 OS.

Monitor System Efficiency

You'll also review Solaris subsystems and utilities to monitor system efficiency, including: 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 Performance

This course also includes a section about optimizing system resources and tuning Solaris virtualization. You'll also review content related to key Cloud performance technologies, like Solaris Integated Load Balancer and data flows control.

Hands-On Practice

The Oracle Solaris 11 Performance Management course includes robust hands-on practices. These labs will help you apply best practices and techniques to reinforce critical thinking and skills.
