Abstract

This IBM Redbooks publication provides tips, techniques, and methodologies for working with Java and WebSphere Application Server performance-related issues with a specific focus on iSeries servers. The intended audience includes iSeries system performance experts and WebSphere Application Server and Java developers. This book attempts to provide you with a comprehensive and accessible resource that has gathered information usually found in a number of disparate sources and placed them in a single reference.

The performance measurements that are published in this book are done by using a Java application that runs on WebSphere Application Server Release 3.5.4 and 4.0 and OS/400 V5R1. This book includes these topics:

- An introduction to the Java and WebSphere Application Server execution environment on the iSeries
- OS/400 work management and tuning in Java/WebSphere Application Server environment
- Tuning WebSphere Application Server and Web server (HTTP server)
- Performance tips for application development and deployment
- Sizing and capacity planning
- Recommended tools to use for performance analysis and planning
- A case study that shows an example of performance management methodology and tuning
