While monitoring, analyzing and tuning hardware are critical aspects of midrange-server systems management, initially focusing resources on software optimization can provide significant value in many environments. Many performance issues like poor response time, long-running batch jobs, slow client/server or web requests, high CPU usage and high disk activity are typically the symptoms of underlying application performance culprits. Addressing memory-faulting concerns and monitoring other hardware statistics only nominally improves application performance throughput. To substantially improve system performance, however, the root causes of performance issues typically causing I/O bottlenecks within the system must be identified and addressed. In this informative one-hour Webcast, Mike Boadway will provide a flexible, comprehensive overview of the steps required to identify and solve the root causes of application performance issues using a drill down approach. Once these root causes are corrected within your application software, database administration and systems management techniques, it's then time to model and tune your hardware around an optimized application environment. By addressing software-based root causes of application performance issues, end-users and customers will gain significant improvement in system performance--even in environments with purchased software and no source code-much more cost-effectively than by starting with hardware upgrades.
