  6. 6. linkTuner OverviewYou Can’t Manage What You Can’t Measure
  7. 7. • 2 customers were implementing PDMLink– 100+ Pro/E users at one customer– 200+ Pro/E users at the other– PTC didn’t have a tool to do it• Customer Thoughts– How will the performance of 10.X or 9.X compare to 3.4 or 8.0?– Have we sized our hardware appropriately?– How will the system perform Day 1?– Is the system performance degrading over time?• Customer wanted data to support reality– “I think PDMLink 10.1 is slower than 9.1”– “The system seems slower than a couple months ago”linkTuner• BackgroundYou Can’t Manage What You Can’t Measure
  8. 8. Typical Tune/Test Options• Do nothing …hope it works• Use Internal Resources…time/resource consuming• Use LoadRunner or Jmeter…need expertise, doesn’t usePro/ENGINEER, can fill cache and eliminate the server sideexercise• Use PTC System Monitor (PSM)• Use linkTuner• Combination of the aboveYou Can’t Manage What You Can’t Measure
  9. 9. Solution: linkTuner• Simulates Pro/E uses across your network• Automates the benchmarking process• Collects empirical data• Runs against 3.4, 8.0, 9.X and 10.X• Let’s you measure so you can manage
  10. 10. • Server console coordinatestask lists for CAD agents• Can run the followingchecks:– Search/Info/Browse– Revise– Download/Open– Upload/Check-in– Promote– Delete RevisionHow linkTuner Works• Insures unique items are loaded to avoid objectcaching to enhance effectiveness.• Can run either a fixed list of objects, or for a fixedlength of time.
