Using block storage in IBM PureApplication System pattern workloads
IBM PureApplication System 2.0 supports a new kind of storage volume called block storage. Unlike storage support in previous versions, block storage decouples storage from the lifecycle of the workload encapsulated in the patterns. The storage persists after the workload is deleted, and can be attached to a different workload. This tutorial shows you how to use block and shared block storage in PureApplication System pattern workloads.

Complement business rule debugging in IBM Operational Decision Manager with a logging framework
Logging and tracing play an integral role in problem diagnosis and understanding the flow of many applications. Common logging methods such as adding print statements placed through the code are often used to trace the flow of an application or a component during development. However this method falls short on scalability and flexibility by making it difficult to dynamically and easily change and control the amount and destination of logged information. A logging framework, such as the logging APIs available in Java SE or Apache Log4J, provide feature rich, flexible logging mechanisms that aid with debugging and tracing. This tutorial explains how to use a Java Logging framework in IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) to assist with debugging and tracing business rule projects.

Caching Strategy Design for WebSphere Commerce, Part 2: Implementation of Caching Strategy
In Part 2 of this series, you learn how to detect which eSpots are static and which are dynamic so that the eSpots can be cached appropriately on a CDN (Content Delivery Network). If they are static eSpots then they are consumed by the parent servlet cache and stored on a CDN for faster performance, and if they are dynamic eSpots they are automatically transformed into Ajax requests.

Improved overload protection and workload prioritization for WebSphere Application Server
In IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, Intelligent Management features automatically protect against server overload, and the autonomic request flow manager (ARFM) lets you preferentially throttle traffic to ensure mission-critical applications continue to be served in a resource constrained environment. An enhancement in V8.5.5.3 called node-based ARFM now enables a faster reaction to high CPU and heap usage, and better differentiation for higher priority workloads. This article describes the CPU overload protection and concurrent request limit enhancements provided by node-based ARFM, and explains how to configure node-based ARFM and verify the health of the systems and the prioritization of the workloads.

Comment lines: Software solution resiliency guidelines can help prevent bad behavior
Unit testing, system functional testing, performance testing, and the like have traditionally been the only kind of testing that is performed in some form or fashion when implementing a new or updated system. Unfortunately, often overlooked is resiliency testing. The result is that when resiliency issues surface, operations, administration, network, systems, and database personnel all scramble to find the root cause. This typically leads to a relatively lengthy project to ensure the solution becomes - and stays - resilient. This article offers guidelines you can follow to ensure the IT solution is more resilient to environmental changes.

Implementing the side cache pattern with IBM Integration Bus and IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10
IBM Integration Bus V9 supports two methods of caching data -- an embedded global cache (embedded version of WebSphere eXtreme Scale), or an external grid. When connecting to an external grid, IBM Integration Bus hosts the WebSphere eXtreme Scale client, and therefore a separate WebSphere eXtreme Scale installation or an appliance is required, such as a WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance. This article shows you how to configure IBM Integration Bus with a WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance and back-end relational database management system to implement a side cache pattern, and describes how this configuration can reduce response time and improve performance.
