Tuning performance

When you have identified a performance problem, you will want to tune the system to fix it.

The primary aim of performance tuning is to make the most efficient use of the system resources. Performance tuning is a way to adjust the performance of the system either manually or automatically. Many options exist for tuning your system. Each system environment is unique in that it requires you to observe performance and make adjustments that are best for your environment; in other words, you are required to do routine performance monitoring.

In addition, you may also want to consider some tuning options that allow processes and threads to achieve improved affinity for memory and processor resources.
