Optimizing AIX 5L performance: Tuning disk performance, Part 1
Learn more about direct I/O, concurrent I/O, asynchronous I/O, and best practices for each method of I/O implementation. This three-part series on the AIX(R) disk and I/O subsystem focuses on the challenges of optimizing disk I/O performance. While disk tuning is arguably less exciting than CPU or memory tuning, it is a crucial component in optimizing server performance. In fact, partly because disk I/O is your weakest subsystem link, you can do more to improve disk I/O performance than on any other subsystem.

Running Oracle on AIX
A systems administrator always needs to be cognizant of system performance. This article drills down into the many aspects of tuning AIX to run Oracle. We'll look at the Virtual Memory Manager (VMM), CPU, Memory and I/O (disk and network). We'll examine some of the tools that you can use to analyze bottlenecks, while also making some changes to the system. Finally, we'll also review some Oracle tools you can use to help with your performance tuning.

Optimizing AIX 7 memory performance: Part 1, Memory overview and tuning memory parameters
AIX 7 takes advantage of the POWER7 CPU to improve memory usage within LPARs. While memory tuning might be more difficult to implement than processor or disk tuning, it is no less important. You can do more to tune memory on an AIX 7 server than on any other subsystem. Changing some memory parameters on your system can increase performance dramatically, particularly when these parameters are not optimized for the environment which you are running. This three-part series on memory tuning dives right into tuning parameters focusing on the many challenges and the various best practices of optimizing memory performance, and it also discusses some improvements in AIX 6 and AIX 7. Part 1 provides an overview of memory on AIX 7, including a discussion of virtual memory and the Virtual Memory Manager (VMM).

Optimizing AIX 7 operating system performance, Part 1: Disk I/O overview and long-term monitoring tools (sar, nmon, and topas)
Learn more about configuring and monitoring AIX 7 based on the investigations of AIX 7 beta compared to the original articles based on AIX 5L. The article covers the support for direct I/O, concurrent I/O, asynchronous I/O, and best practices for each method of I/O implementation. This three-part series on the AIX disk and I/O subsystem focuses on the challenges of optimizing disk I/O performance. While disk tuning is arguably less exciting than CPU or memory tuning, it is a crucial component in optimizing server performance. In fact, partly because disk I/O is your weakest subsystem link, you can do more to improve disk I/O performance than on any other subsystem.

Optimizing AIX 6.1 performance tuning
Just when you thought you understood performance tuning on AIX(R) Version 5.3, here comes AIX 6.1 on its heels to throw you a curveball. In this article, get up-to-date information on the recent changes to performance monitoring and tuning in AIX 6.1, including CPU, virtual memory, and I/O (disk and network). Many of the changes are really less about kernel innovations and more about ancillary changes, such as improving default parameters to more accurately reflect real-world data processing. Other enhancements include unique tunable documentation, restricted tunables, and various other improvements to certain subsystems. You'll learn more about a performance tuning methodology, which needs to be a part of any tuning strategy.

Optimizing AIX 7 operating system performance, Part 2: Monitoring logical volumes and analyzing the results
Discover how to use appropriate disk placement prior to creating your logical volumes to improve disk performance. These investigations are based on AIX 7 beta and updating information from the original AIX 5L version of this article. Part 2 of this series focuses on monitoring your logical volumes and the commands and utilities (iostat, lvmstat, lslv, lspv, lsvg) used to analyze results.
