A year and a half ago, IBM Wave for z/VM came onto the scene to provide a simplified and cost effective way for companies to harness the consolidation capabilities of the IBM z Systems platform and its ability to host workloads of tens of thousands of commodity servers. In December 2015, an IBM Redbooks residency started running to make important updates to the IBM Redbooks publication, IBM Wave for z/VM Installation,Implementation, and Exploitation, SG24-8192. IBM Wave Release 2 further expands the capabilities by delivering increased support for Linux distributions and devices, as well as additional enterprise-grade security and performance enhancements.
Some of the updates in this book include instructions on how to do a bare metal installation from Red Hat Enterprise Linux Servers using IBM Wave for z/VM.
Additionally, this IBM Redbooks publication includes a new chapter that describes IBM Wave / BTS parameters that might influence performance and resource usage. This chapter discusses:
- The IBM Wave Parameters window
- General parameters
- The BTS Manager window
- How to restart the Background Task Scheduler (the BTS)
- And how to produce a dump of the BTS
We’ve also included an appendix in this version of the IBM Redbooks publication that includes, among other things, IBM Wave for z/VM flow charts that can assist you in planning, preparation, installation, and setup of your IBM Wave for z/VM system.
