AS/400 Communication Performance Investigation - V3R6/V3R7

An IBM Redbooks publication


Improving communication performance is not a trivial task. The purpose of this IBM Redbooks publication is to discuss how to manage communications performance and ways to locate the problem areas in communication performance.
This book collects a large amount of the performance information from several sources and presents it in an ordered manner. The databases created by the Performance Tools/400 were used to give the key performance indicators. This book is intended for technical professionals including network designers who want to tune the IBM AS/400 system to improve communications performance.
An intermediate knowledge of the Performance Tools/400 (5716-PT1) and Query/400 (5716-QU1) is assumed.
