WebSphere Application Server 7 Performance Tuning Course
This course provides students with the tools and techniques to tune the performance of WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment Version 7.0 (WAS ND 7)
As typical of all our middleware courses, the course material follows a “Do-it-yourself” approach and provides all the necessary instructions and sample code to setup your lab, try out tuning tasks and learn. In short, this course is a highly practical course which teaches performance tuning by example.
Something unique about this course is the 145 slide Power Point pack which covers WebSphere Performance Tuning best practices and theory.
The following topics are covered:
- Performance tuning process
- How WAS processes requests
- Tools that can be used to measure and tune performance of WAS
- Tuning JVMs, Thread pools, Connection pools
- Tuning session/replication/persistence
By completing this course, the student will be able to judge the impact of changing major WAS parameters on performance, understand how the various WAS components are inter-related and use various thumb rules to quickly bring WAS to optimal performance levels.
Duration: 3-8 Days Self Study
JEE Developers and Administrators having some experience with WebSphere Application Server 7.0 or WebSphere Application Server 8.0.
