Performance Management and OpenVMS Tools
Topic Area:
Track: Open VMS
Topic: Performance & Tuning
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/09/99   10:00 AM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 1B

Presenter:
Bart Lederman
Software Engineer, Compaq Computer Corporation  

Abstract:
There is more to getting good performance from a system than just "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. An introduction to how they are used, what information is obtained from them and what can be done with that information will be given for each tool. The session will also give pointers to other resources and related sessions which cover some of the utilities in greater detail.
