Basic z/OS Tuning Using the Workload Manager (WLM):
Do you need to know how to establish a practical performance management program for your z/OS system? This course is designed for new performance analysts to learn to work with the Workload Manager (WLM) in goal mode. Learn concepts of WLM and performance management in the z/OS system using the WLM. Learn how to analyze Resource Monitoring Facility (RMF) reports and implement service definitions using the WLM Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF) application. The course uses z/OS hands-on lab exercises to reinforce the concepts and techniques discussed in lecture.
Advanced z OS Performance: WLM, Sysplex, UNIX Services, zEnterprise:
Today, z/OS supports new workloads running as e-business servers, including the IBM Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) server and WebSphere. These workloads exploit the latest features of the z/OS runtime environments, including Parallel Sysplex, Workload Manager (WLM), and UNIX System Services (USS). New hardware technology, such as zAAP and zIIP processors, can be exploited for selected workloads, and the WLM Intelligent Resource Director balances workloads across clustered LPARs in a sysplex. Examine the performance management and monitoring components of the Parallel Sysplex, USS, and WLM environment using extensive Resource Management Facility (RMF) reports and console displays to understand what is happening in the system. Based on this foundation, analyze case studies using z/OSMF Workload Management and Resource Monitoring functions to show how integrated performance data gatherers for Linux on System z/x, AIX, and Windows systems can be used to provide a consistent monitoring solution for zEnterprise ensembles.
IBM Workload Manager: Controlling System Performance:
In this workshop, the basic aspects of the z/OS Workload Manager (WLM), together with the latest features, are covered. The attendee will become familiar with the WLM functions, acquire knowledge on how to classify multiple workload types, and learn how to correctly build a policy to achieve the target performance goals. The workshop discusses how to create WLM policies based on business goals and the type of transactions running in an installation. During the workshop, the students will also learn how to use RMF for effective performance analysis.
