Critical business needs can be met with more assurance in an optimized, well-tuned environment. This IBM® Redbooks® Solution Guide describes some of the strategies for optimizing and tuning application code to run on IBM POWER8™ and earlier processor-based systems (IBM Power Systems™). These strategies are drawn from performance optimization efforts across many types of code running on IBM AIX®, IBM i, and Linux®. The guidance ranges from simple to complex and is usable across a broad set of IBM POWER® processor chips and systems. Some of the techniques can be performed without extensive experience. Techniques are also provided for advanced users who have a considerable understanding of application internals. In short, these strategies can maximize the return on your hardware investment.
This technical information was developed by IBM domain experts. It is directed at IBM presales organizations in support of Power Systems products, such as the IBM Power S822 server (Figure 1), and to those responsible for performing migration and implementation activities on IBM POWER8 -based (and earlier) servers.
