The Solaris System Performance Management training course introduces the performance tuning principles, monitoring utilities and tuning tools for the Solaris Operating System (Solaris OS). The presentation includes a review of Solaris subsystems and the utilities provided to monitor system efficiency including sar, vmstat, iostat, netstat, mpstat, nfsstat. This revision also presents tools new to Solaris, including dtrace, alongside these well known utilities.
By attending Solaris System Performance Management workshop, delegates will learn to:
- Describe performance management fundamentals
- Use the Solaris OS and third-party tools to analyze performance
- View and set kernel-based tuning parameters
- Monitor and report on process and thread activity
- Modify CPU scheduling and virtual memory operations
- Describe system caches and system buses
- Tune I/O, UNIX(R) File System (UFS), and network subsystems
- Install and configure the Solaris OS
- Employ advanced systems administration skills in a networked Solaris OS server environment
- Manage pseudo and distributed file systems
- Create and manage logical volumes
- Describe fundamentals of TCP operations
Senior system administrators and others concerned with monitoring effective performance of Solaris systems can benefit from this course. Delegates who want to learn the performance tools provided with Solaris can also benefit from this course.
