The Dawn of Unparalleled IBM i Performance
IBM i Performance Reviews
With each IBM i Performance Review, Dawn performs a uniquely thorough investigation of overall system performance. Her multifaceted knowledge of the IBM i operating system produces meaningful recommendations for in-depth diagnostics.
A Performance Review starts with understanding the client’s needs. Is there a concern with system performance? Or is there a need to capture a baseline – the system’s performance characteristics – for comparison in the future?
Your system remains secure and unchanged throughout this engagement.
Using Collection Services data in conjunction with your system’s characteristics and configuration, Dawn scrutinizes your environment for red flags such as:
- Unusual or unexpected wait conditions
- High CPU utilization
- Excessive page faulting
- Long disk response times
- Jobs that take large amount of system resources
Performance Report & Recommendations
Once Dawn documents all findings, she synthesizes the results and delivers a full report, including her recommendations for where to focus to pinpoint — and fix — the root of any issues.
Quarterly Performance Assessments
Geared to clients who want to keep performance optimized over time as their business or workload evolves, our quarterly program begins with the initial performance review. Once we establish baseline data, each quarter we initiate a follow-up review to identify changes in workload or performance characteristics. This service is key for clients looking to avoid unpleasant surprises as their workload changes.
On-site or Remote
Onsite performance reviews tend to generate more complete results due to easier communications and discussion of any issues that are discovered. When a fast-performing connection to the client system is possible, performance reviews can be conducted remotely.
