Subsystem Configuration Documentation

Some of you may have read the subsystem configuration experience reports that were written way back in 2004, which was about when V5R3 became available. The experience reports were under the related information section of the Work Management topic. The subsystem configuration experience reports were covered in three sections:

  • Why multiple subsystems are important, along with how to configure subsystems for server jobs
  • How to configure interactive subsystems
  • How to manage server jobs

What Happened to the IBM i PCRM?

The Performance Capabilities Reference Manual (PCRM) was THE resource many used when they needed to know something about IBM i performance. That something could be information about performance test results, I/O performance information, performance considerations for IPL, save/restore, partitioning, CPW ratings and many other miscellaneous topics. The last large version of the PCRM was published for IBM i 7.1 in August of 2013. When IBM i 7.2 became available in spring of 2014, that update of the PCRM was substantially smaller.


Power Virtualization Technical Webinars on YouTube

About a year ago, I wrote a short blog on the IBM Power Systems Webinars. These technical webinars are a great resource to learn more about IBM Power Systems and virtualization topics. This week I have just an update – the replays for these webinars are available on YouTube. A YouTube channel and a playlist have been set up where you can find the replays of all the past seminars.

This blog post is obsolete as these YouTube channels no longer exist. The Power VUG Technical Webinar Series page has links to replays for past webinars.


Redbooks Mobile App

The mobile app has been sunset as of 31 Jan 2018.

I think it’s fairly safe to say that most everyone is familiar with Redbooks and you probably have your favorite ones. You now have another option for managing and reading them. IBM has made available a Redbooks mobile application.
