The Informix database depends on the operating system for the CPU, Memory, Disk and Network resources. The presentation will focus on optimizing the Unix, AIX and Linux OS for the best database performance. We will review Kernel Settings, HugePages, enabling and disabling CPUs, OS disk scheduling, SAR and other tools for monitoring Unix and Linux.
