Sky High Performance - Best Practices for IBM I Performance Management

This session will teach us about the tools and techniques for performance management.  It will help us understand the overall performance management lifecycle and how to apply best practices to each aspect of performance.  This is essential to maintain a well-performing solution.  We’ll see end-to-end performance management that includes work to size and plan for system hardware and software changes, monitoring the ongoing performance of the solution, doing detailed performance analysis when necessary, and trending your performance characteristics over time.  This session focuses on this performance management lifecycle and reviews the best practices to keep your hardware and software performing at their very best.

Dawn is the IBM liaison for several client advisory councils; the IBM i Large User Group (LUG), the COMMON America's Advisory Council (CAAC), and the COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC).  She is also part of the Systems Management team in IBM Lab Services and Training, where she works with clients on proof of concepts with Systems Director and related products on both AIX and IBM i.  Dawn has had many different positions throughout her career at IBM. She’s led the Performance and Scalability Services Center where she worked with IBM clients to help them plan and execute performance and scaling tests, to prepare for software or hardware upgrades and to understand the required capacity for their applications. She was the technical lead for the IBM i Systems Software Development organization and IBM i Business Architect. Dawn had the responsibility for the overall strategy and planning for the core components of i. She also had the technical leadership responsibilities for i performance and diagnostic tools; led the development of the 6.1 performance tools enhancements, which included the "Performance" tasks in the Navigator for i Web console.
