Optimizing AIX 5L performance: Tuning your memory settings, Part 2
Use ps, sar, svmon, and vmstat to monitor memory usage and analyze the results. This three-part series focuses on the various aspects of memory management and tuning on IBM System p(TM) servers running AIX(R). Part 1 provided an overview of memory on AIX, including a discussion of virtual memory and the Virtual Memory Manager (VMM). It also drilled down into the tuning parameters and outlined recent improvements in AIX Version 5.3 with respect to memory management. Part 2 focuses on the detail of actual memory subsystem monitoring and discusses how to analyze the results. Part 3 deals specifically on swap space and how best to tune your VMM settings to provide for optimum swap space configuration and performance. Throughout this series, I'll also cover some of the best practices of memory performance tuning and monitoring.

Optimizing AIX 5L performance: Tuning your memory settings, Part 1
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(R) Version 5.3. While memory tuning might be more difficult to implement than Central Processing Unit (CPU) tuning, it certainly is no less important. You can do more to tune memory on an AIX 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. Part 1 of this series provides an overview of memory on AIX, including a discussion of virtual memory and the Virtual Memory Manager (VMM).
