PLPERF301 - Maximizing NonStop System Performance
This up-to-date performance course covers all critical NonStop system components: CPU, memory, processes, disc, cache, and files. It also addresses the performance aspects of key NonStop subsystems, including Pathway, SMF, TMF, RDF, TCP/IP, and Expand. An important aspect of the course is its treatment of Open System Services (OSS) and the two entities (OSSCPU and OSSNS) recently added to Measure to support it.

This five-day course includes 13 labs and more than 20 TACL routines to expedite performance analysis. The course is based on the G06.20 NSK release and therefore addresses current features of both Measure and the system. NonStop subsystems can be covered in more or less detail, according to customer requirements.

Course Duration: 5 days (on-site)

NonStop system managers, database administrators, capacity planners and modelers, and programmers creating high-performance applications.

Your NonStop system can do more - and do it faster. Discover how to use Measure and other HP tools to detect performance-degrading bottlenecks. Learn how to remove these bottlenecks for higher batch throughput and lower response times.

This is an advanced course that covers the NonStop system in considerable depth and detail. Students should have approximately five years of knowledge and experience on NonStop systems. Exposure to NonStop performance management is recommended but not essential.
