WebSphere 8 Overview and new features for tuning performance

Some new points raised by IBM.

Tuning is art-form and really a lot of common sense is needed. You need to spend time setting benchmarks then applying load and comparing results. There is often no right or wrong way. In reality most projects do not do half the performance testing and tuning they need to do or should do and we are all guilty of that, even the big boys. In time, I hope to shed some of my experiences. It is hard to put into writing things that you know in practice, but have never thought about passing onto others. Come back often to this site and you will find I am continually trying to add more insights.

My WebSphere Application Server 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.
