IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 Performance Tuning  (WA715)

Format: Instructor-Led/Virtual Classroom

This 3-day instructor-led course teaches students how to tune WebSphere Application Servers for improved performance.

In this course, students learn about performance tuning methods and best practices that apply to both the application server environment and the Java EE application. These methods and tools for load testing, monitoring, and tuning can be applied to various WebSphere components such as the application server's Java Virtual Machine (JVM), connection pools, and general runtime environment.

Instructor-led lectures cover topics such as performance tuning concepts and tasks, tools for load testing, monitoring server performance, best practices for tuning the JVM and connection pools, and application profiling.

Hands-on lab exercises provided throughout the course give students practical experience using tools to generate user loads on an application and monitor key performance metrics such as response time and throughput. Students also learn how to gather information from WebSphere's built-in performance advisors and how to use this information to tune, test, and monitor sample Java EE applications.
