Leverage the Power of AIX on Power Systems

Experienced administrators who need a quick, basic introduction to AIX performance tuning will want this handy reference on their bookshelf.

barry_klineWritten by Barry L. Kline

For many years, the "i" and "p" platforms have been completely distinct, and as a result, those of us who spent most of our professional lives using the various incarnations of OS/400 may never have seen a pSeries running AIX. Given the recent merger of the iSeries and pSeries into the Power platform, that era may soon pass. It's just too darned easy to build an AIX partition and to migrate functions from i5/OS to a platform better suited for certain things, such as mail servers and Internet-based infrastructure. And of course, if you ever need to run Oracle, you'll have no choice but to use something other than i5, so why not leverage the hardware we've come to know and love?

Editor's note: You asked for it, and you got it! Back by popular demand is our "Tirade" humor column.


The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will eventually type the complete works of William Shakespeare. Well, the monkey's still at work; no Shakespeare yet. But I'm convinced that all the monkey-babble typed to this point has not gone unused, that Apple and its legion of app developers continually sift through the mountains of nonsense words for ideas.

If you've ever been one of the unfortunate souls charged with monitoring a computer system for compliance or been asked to generate reports for inquisitive auditors, you know what a huge drain such projects can be on time and resources.
