WebSphere Application Server is a key component of enterprise architecture, and performance bottlenecks can affect multiple applications. WebSphere Application Server Performance Tuning Toolkit (hereafter called PTT) is an easy to use tool that can be used to uncover performance issues with WebSphere Application Server. The first part of this tutorial series described various features of the toolkit, as well its setup, and took a sample problem scenario and resolved it using the toolkit. This part presents several more problem scenarios and shows how PTT can help in detecting and resolving the issues.
PTT can be used to resolve various performance problems, including ones arising from
- High CPU usage
- Connection leaks
- Memory leaks
The first part of this series discussed synchronization blocking problem. This tutorial discusses the remaining scenarios.
