AIX Runtime Expert

AIX® Runtime Expert provides a simplified set of actions that can be used against a single consolidation for collecting, applying, and verifying the runtime environment for one or more AIX instances.

There are tools provided by AIX components, such as Reliability Availability Serviceability (RAS), Security, or Kernel, which allow you to change settings within each component layer in order to tune the operating system to a particular need or requirement. AIX Runtime Expert enables system-wide configuration by using an extendable framework to handle the many different configuration methods that currently exist in AIX.

AIX Runtime Expert executes multiple-component configuration commands as a single action using a configuration profile. You can use this profile to apply identical system settings across multiple systems. AIX Runtime Expert provides a simplified alternative for managing the runtime configuration of one or more systems, but it does not prevent the use of other methods to change system settings.
