Managing Your IBM Power System Server Performance
Successfully managing performance ensures that your system is efficiently using resources and that your server provides the best possible services to your users and to your business needs. Moreover, effective performance management can help you quickly respond to changes in your system and can save you money by postponing costly upgrades and service fees.
Performance management is necessary to optimize utilization of your computer system by measuring current capabilities, recognizing trends, and making appropriate adjustments to satisfy end user and management requirements such as response time or job throughput. It is needed to maintain business efficiency and avoid prolonged suspension of normal business activities. Therefore, managing performance is part of your daily operations.
Understanding the factors that affect system performance helps you respond to problems and make better long-term plans. Effective planning can prevent potential performance problems from developing and ensures that you have the system capacity to handle your current and growing workloads.
As your business needs change, your system must also change. To prepare for any changes, you will want to model the current system and then see what would happen if the system, the configuration, or the workload were changed.
Tracking your system performance over time allows you to plan for your system's growth and ensures that you have data to help isolate and identify the cause of performance problems. Learn which applications to use and how to routinely collect performance data.
