With these techniques, administrators like you become much more efficient.

Every object on AIX is a file. So it makes sense to understand a bit more about the types of files, the file sizes, and the handy commands to locate them. Each file has an inode, and the inode to a file contains information about ownership, permissions, file access times, plus other attributes relating to that particular file. In a nutshell, the inode holds all the information about the file. On AIX (or any UNIX/Linux system), there may be some files with the same inode number; however, they would reside on different file systems. The inode will be unique within that file system.

Get continuous performance data without major overhead.

tom huntingtonWritten by Tom Huntington

Does your team often get surprised by end users calling to complain about performance problems? Have you ever not had the details needed to see what was causing a performance problem? Are you struggling with a proactive approach to managing performance? Do you have someone manually documenting WRKSYSSTS or WRKDSKSTS output?

 

Think Robot/NETWORK Explorer.

Fill the gap between modules and ILE programs for a full panorama of your ILE application.

jean-paul lamontreWritten by Jean-Paul Lamontre

Part I and Part II of this series have shown how some system commands can be used to dissect in depth one application, without the source code. But these analyses suffer from a lack of information for ILE programs—namely, the link between the program and embedded modules.

Partner TechTip: Automate the Un-Automatable PDF Print E-mail

Don't let operators or users waste valuable time and system resources by running reports and other processes with incorrect parameters or at the wrong time.

ChuckLosinski 116x116Written by Chuck Losinski

Do you still have people running reports repetitively at a certain time of day, week, or month? Maybe your ERP system has a series of demand reports, supplier order reports, or inventory reports that must be run, and you have an operator or clerk running those reports manually from a green-screen? Have these reports ever run with incorrect selection criteria? Maybe someone input an incorrect product line or date range? Or maybe someone took a vacation day and the reports didn't run at all?

Automate your storage analysis and cleanup.

chuck losinskiWritten by Chuck Losinski

In a recent Webinar, we highlighted the fact that if you max out your disk space on IBM i, the system will simply IPL and may delete all your spool files to make room. How inconvenient! Polling during the Webinar indicated that 10 percent of respondents had experienced an automatic IPL because their disk had become full.
