The book offers application performance examples deployed on IBM Power Systems utilizing performance monitoring tools to leverage the comprehensive set of POWER virtualization features: Logical Partitions (LPARs), micro-partitioning, active memory sharing, workload partitions, and more. We provide a well-defined and documented performance tuning model in a POWER system virtualized environment to help you plan a foundation for scaling, capacity, and optimization

In 2013, we continue to address and expands system and operating system performance tuning topics. This publication provides significant input in multiple areas including system performance tuning (virtualized environment), operating system performance tuning, application tuning, among others. We advise to carefully take our scenarios and recommendations into consideration with careful planning (change windows) because every environment has it owns configuration and caveats.
We encourage comments, suggestions, and any questions you might have after reading this publication.
