"tuning." This session describes performance management: when and
why it should be done, starting and maintaining a program, its goals, what questions can be answered, what planning can be done, what the limitations are and what is the most common cause of failure. This process provides the necessary framework for system tuning and is not covered in other sessions. This part of the session is independent of any operating system or product.
As part of this process, the session will also give an overview of the tools and utilities that are supplied (free) with OpenVMS which are useful for Performance Management.
