Looks like we now have a Blog, File Sharing, a Wiki, and Activities, I will have a play and see what we can do with them
Want to know more about new IBM #POWER7 systems. Go here.
Just read the news about #IBM #POWER7 announcements. Check it out
#IBM announces #POWER7 redefines the benchmarks against which performance is measured
POWER7 based machines introduces the Active Memory Expansion (AME) which makes the memory of an AIX 6 Logical Partition (LPAR) seem larger than is actually is by compression memory pages on the fly. This movie covers the basics of how it works, how to switch it on at the LPAR level, running the "amepat" tool to predetermine good AME settings and its effect and then how to monitor it while its running.

Thanks to Joe at the VUG for this one:
At the June webinar I mentioned a new set of IBM courses that were being
offered. These are FREE of charge, NO COST, COMPLIMENTARY classes. They
are a bit like the AIX VUG Webinars with each class having a single focus.
I have put a link to the material as well as the web site on the AIX VUG
Wiki. It is just above the Next Sessions heading and is labeled Power Test
Drive Course Information. Check it out for more focused education from

The zsnap command is a supplemental tool used by AIX support personnel to gather debugging data. Built around the standard AIX snap command, the zsnap command gathers additional information that the snap command does not provide. You can also use the zsnap command to send a testcase directly to IBM from the machine that generated the testcase data. If needed, the zsnap command can fork multiple calls to the snap command, which results in quicker data gathering than if done via snap.

Pat O'Rourke is from the IBM briefing lab and has deep knowledge of the Power product line. This week, Pat will cover the I/O options and considerations for POWER7 servers. I/O drawers, adapters, placement, split backplanes, and even some SSD (Solid State Disk) will be covered. This gets pretty deep into the server I/O architecture and helps you better under the server capabilities and how to best use them.
This webinar is 90 minutes.
Hello to our Trans-Tasman colleagues,
The next few months are busy for hardware/storage technical training in New Zealand. We currently have a host of courses scheduled for System x, VMware, System Storage and Power Systems.

The past two years have been major events in the world of UNIX. In 2009
UNIX celebrated 40 years, and last month was the 25th birthday for AIX.
In this article, I’ll take a brief walk through time and look at the
progression UNIX and AIX have taken.

Guide to selecting an AIX or VIOS Multipathing path control module
I prefer AIXPCM, as it is part of AIX, so easier from a support perspective, and reduces upgrade time and complexity.
