Learn how to analyze the WebSphere Application Server (WAS) V6 for z/OS performance. Develop skills to tune WebSphere V6.0 for z/OS and its environment to reach maximum performance. Benchmark tools are used to simulate a Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) transaction workload against WebSphere for z/OS, and then performance tools are used to monitor performance data on these transactions.
Each individual group has their own z/OS system where they start with an untuned application server environment. In the lab exercises, they apply tuning changes, and then perform measurement runs. The result are taken and transferred to a table for performance comparisons. The class discusses tuning of important subsystems (for example UNIX System Services (USS), IBM Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Server for z/OS, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM)), and the WebSphere infrastructure and some J2EE application performance tuning.
The course materials cover WAS V6 for z/OS.
Eight labs are included to address final setup and customization of a WebSphere for z/OS V6 server, setup and initialization of the HTTP Server, installation and configuration of the WebSphere Studio Workload Simulator, tuning the Workload Manager (WLM) configuration to improve performance of the WAS, examination of the USS parameters and settings, measurement and recording of changes to the HTTP Server configuration, configuration of the WebSphere V6 plug-in, enabling the Fast Response Cache Accelerator (FRCA) cache in the HTTP server, and analysis of activities in JVM, including planning for IBM System z9 and IBM zSeries Application Assist Processor (zAAP) processors. Also, work with replication domains, session management, dynamic cache services, and the use of clusters.
This course is part of an IBM Training Path. Taking this course in the recommended sequence allows you to maximize the benefits from your education.
Training Paths that reference this course are:
This is an intermediate course for experienced z/OS and system programmers, who implement and customize the WAS V6.0 on z/OS, and Information Technology (IT) professionals, who deploy Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) and Web applications on z/OS.
You should complete:
You should have a basic knowledge of system measurements and analysis of performance data provided by z/OS functions, such as System Measurement Facility (SMF), Resource Measurement Facility (RMF) and TCP/IP.
