The Read Diagnostic Parameters (RDP) Extended Link Service (ELS) is an enhanced capability that requests the Fiber Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapter (HBA) port to return the diagnostic information. In large data centers, this data is useful to identify the faulty ports quickly.
Yadagiri Rajaboina and Vinayak Prasad Karne
This article helps users to understand the requirements for configuring an AIX partition with DB2 to support AIX Live Update.
Puspanjali Kar and Srikanth Joshi
This article gives an overview of IBM Geographically Dispersed Resiliency for Power systems. Its virtual machine restart-based disaster recovery model provides support for data centers with IBM Power Systems infrastructure and IBM Power virtualization.
Dishant J. Doriwala, Srikanth Thanneeru, Pooja Bableshwar, and Neha Jain
This article describes the recent enhancements to the IBM AIX operating system MPIO software, and describes how the IBM AIX lsmpio command can be used during problem determination.

This article describes the Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface (CAPI) Flash support on IBM AIX. CAPI technology has been used on AIX to accelerate I/O operations to IBM Flash storage. AIX CAPI Flash driver stack has been optimized into a monolithic driver model which further reduced the I/O code path length.

This article describes how to install and configure Subversion on AIX 7.1 using yum configuration. This method makes the Subversion installation easier on AIX 7.1 and also enables to configure Subversion with Apache using SSL and LDAP.
Raviram Sutariya and Saiprasad P Parkar
This tutorial series discusses different methods of establishing IPsec tunnels between IBM AIX and Microsoft Windows 2012 systems.
Shailaja Mallya, Shivaprasad Manuwacharya
This article helps users to monitor network bandwidth and analyze network traffic in an IBM AIX server using ProbeVue. This provides users with a near real time view of what is happening in their network for a user-specified time interval or when a user specified event occurs.
In scenerios where tprof utility fails to resolve the addresses of the symbols, instead reports the symbols in hexadecimal format. This makes perfomance analysis difficult, since the symbols would not have resolved into meaningful function names. This article explains the way in which users can translate the unresolved address in a tprof profile report to meaningful function address using gensyms and dbx commands.
Ravi Kumar Somashekariah
This article demonstrates how performance with IBM AIX flash can drastically improve read requests from a storage subsystem by running performance benchmark tests.
Srikanth Joshi and Rajesh Kumar
This article describes the purpose, goals, and results of the testing including the technical details behind the tests, the specifications for the test environment, and details about the test scenarios and performance data from those tests.
Brian Porter, Harry Seifert , Beth Hoffman, Narayana Pattipati, Ben Smith , Matthew Sheard, and Tony Brown
This article provides end-to-end configuration steps to enable TCP largesend offload and Ethernet jumbo_frames attributes in IBM AIX, explains the benefits of using them, provides a performance study of using largesend offload using tprof, and describes how to use large receive.
This article explains how we can use IPsec as a security protocol to communicate between two client systems and how we can configure IPsec with Kerberos authentication between these systems.
Srikanth Joshi and Sandeep Umesh
This article describes how to set up an environment where SAS can access and analyze data stored on Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) using SAS/ACCESS Interface to Hadoop. The environment is running on IBM POWER8 processor-based servers.
Beth Hoffman and Narayana Pattipati
This article helps users to understand how to update the Olson time zone database on IBM AIX whenever it is periodically updated with the latest time zone changes.
