From the Back Cover

Maximize the performance and value of any HP-UX 11i system

HP-UX 11i Tuning and Performance takes the guesswork out of maximizing HP-UX 11i performance—so you can quickly maximize the value of any HP-UX system in any environment. Leading HP experts introduce a comprehensive, systematic performance management methodology that addresses every stage in the lifecycle of an HP-UX system.

You’ll find specific metrics, symptoms and solutions for every key element of an HP-UX 11i system, including hardware, the OS platform, and application development. From start to finish, the emphasis is on practical results—and on understanding the real-world cost/benefit tradeoffs that are central to every tuning project. Coverage includes:

  • A comprehensive optimization methodology, direct from HP’s performance labs
  • New optimization opportunities and techniques made possible by HP-UX 11i
  • All-new chapters on network performance and Java performance
  • Rules of thumb for more cost-effective performance management
  • Instrumenting HP-UX 11i systems to accurately reflect reality
  • Choosing the right performance metrics, and using them correctly
  • Key performance tradeoffs in both uniprocessor and SMP environments
  • Practical techniques for resolving CPU, memory, and disk bottlenecks
  • How to make the most of HP-UX specific and generic UNIX performance tools
  • Performance enhancements available through compiler optimization and application profiling
  • Extensive examples from actual HP performance consulting assignments

Whether you’re an HP-UX 11i sysadmin, netadmin, developer, capacity planner, or performance specialist, this is your complete guide to getting all the performance you paid for!

By David B. Ramsey on March 28, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book, "HP-UX Tuning and Performance: Concepts, Tools and Methods," is the Second Edition with 560 pages of material for concepts 2004 by Robert F. Sauers, Chris P. Ruemmler, and Peter S. Weygant.

The prior First Edition is only 296 pages of material but useful for concepts vintage 1999 by F. Sauers, and Peter S. Weygant.

I own both copies and I have taken the H4262, "HP-UX Tuning and Performance" class. The Second Edition book is offered as a supplement to the H4262 class.

If your funding is limited, then the First Edition may be a useful introduction. Lastly, the Second Edition is more relevant to HP-UX 11i.

If a deeper understanding of HP-UX is required, then I strongly suggest the "HP-UX 11i Internals (Hewlett-Packard Professional Books (Hardcover)) by Chris Cooper."
