This course discusses system architecture with emphasis on:
- Understanding the implications on system performance
- Methods for testing the effects of performance adjustments
- Open source benchmarking utilities
- Methods for analyzing system and networking performance
- Tuning configurations for specific application loads
- Tuning for use-case scenarios (for example, HPC, large memory, database, and file server)
- Applying tuning profiles with tuned
- Tuning virtual machines (primarily guest, but host is discussed)
- Tuning memory and caches
- Tuning CPU and memory utilization using cgroups (integrated in systemd)
- Gathering performance metrics and other data for tuning purposes
This course can also help you prepare for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Performance Tuning exam (EX442).
- Red Hat Certified Architect-RHCA
- RHCA certification represents a depth of knowledge in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and breadth of knowledge across other Red Hat technologies.
- Certificates of Expertise
- Certificates of Expertise are incremental credentials attached to an RHCE certification that demonstrate skills and knowledge in specialized areas.
- Senior Linux system administrators responsible for maximizing resource utilization through performance tuning
- Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE®) certification or equivalent experience
