We're pleased to announce the first public version of the WAS Performance Cookbook: https://publib.boulder.ibm.com/httpserv/cookbook/
The WebSphere Application Server Performance Cookbook covers performance tuning for WebSphere Application Server (WAS), although there is also a very strong focus on Java, Operating Systems, and theory which can be applied to other products and environments. The cookbook is designed to be read in a few different ways:
- On the go: Readers short on time should skip to the Recipes chapter at the end of the book. In the spirit of a cookbook, there are recipes that provide step-by-step instructions of how to gather and analyze data for particular classes of problems.
- General areas: For readers interested in tuning some general area such as WAS or Java, each major chapter provides its recipe at the top of the chapter that summarizes the key tuning knobs that should be investigated.
- Deep dive: Readers interested in end-to-end tuning are encouraged to skim the entire book for areas relevant to their product usage.
