Implementing the Brocade Access Gateway for IBM BladeCenter: Because SAN configurations continue to grow in size and complexity, this Redpaper introduces the Access Gateway feature of the Brocade Fibre Channel Switch Modules and describes the technology and features of this module and the connectivity options. There are several implementations described, each with a use case and a matrix contrasting the benefits of each implementation.
Communications Server for z/OS V1R9 TCP/IP Implementation Volume 3: High Availability, Scalability, and Performance: What this extremely wordy Redbooks draft title is trying to tell you is not to miss this paper which covers the Communications Server for z/OS TCP/IP implementation, including step-by-step guidance on virtual IP addressing (with and without dynamic routing), internal and external application workload balancing (as well as intra-sysplex balancing), and performance and tuning issues. All presented in a detailed implementation environment.
ABCs of z/OS System Programming Volume 1: The new draft is here. In this newly issued version of the first volume in an 11-volume set of the award-winning series, you'll learn the most current information about mainframes and such introductory z/OS concepts as the system programmer, storage, delivery and installation, maintenance, and an alphabet soup of building blocks: TSO/E, ISPF, JCL, and SDSF. (Ah, a short title!)
z/OS Version 1 Release 9 Implementation: In this Redbook you'll find the new enhancements to z/OS V1R9, including an overview, how-tos on installation and migration, and what's new with the Coupling Facility, ICSF support, allocation dynamic storage, System Logger, SMF recording and GRS, Workload Manager, C/C++, and much more.
Tivoli Security and System z: This Redpaper presents a summary of Tivoli security products for System z, both in what runs on System z and what management/security of System z resources are available. It also introduces some of the platforms (and their terminology) for System z.
Blue Gene/P Application Development: This Redbook provides an overview of the application development environment for the Blue Gene/P system, designed to help programmers understand the requirements to develop applications on this high-performance massively parallel supercomputer. The book details instances where the Blue Gene/P system is unique in its programming environment -- it also showcases some of the differences between the Blue Gene/P and Blue Gene/L.
High Performance Computing Toolkit for Blue Gene/P: This Redpaper describes tools for the Blue Gene/P system and how to use them, covering such areas as the MPI Profiler and Tracer, CPU profiling using Xprofiler, hardware performance monitoring, the HPC toolkit GUI, and I/O performance.
