    This IBM Redbooks publication addresses some of the common problems that customers have experienced on the Linux® on System z™ platform. This book provides a problem determination methodology and tools to help the reader diagnose the problem in an easy-to-read self-help manual.

    We start with a discussion on how to approach problem solving in the Linux on System z environment and continue on to describe some of the problem determination tools commonly used for z/VM and Linux on system z. We continue with discussions on network problem determination, performance problem determination, and storage problems.

    Additionally, we discuss the formation of eligible (or eligibility) lists.
