RedHat Enterprise Performance Tunning (RH442)

  • RedHat Enterprise Performance Tunning (RH442) to monitor performance metrics on Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems and configure performance enhancements suitable for various production workloads.
  • Build skills needed to be a successful Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administrator responsible for tuning and maintaining settings to support specific machine workloads.
  • Linux System Administrators ability to use standard system tools to analyze the performance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux┬« and applications running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and to use standard system tools and mechanisms to modify the behavior of the system and applications for the purpose of improving system performance.
Course Overview
  • Red Hat Enterprise Performance Tuning is designed for Linux system administrators the methodology of performance tuning.
  • This course discusses system architecture with an emphasis on understanding the implications of system architecture on system performance, performance adjustments, open source benchmarking utilities, networking performance, and tuning configurations for specific application loads.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Performence Tunning was very helpful for linux system administrators to maximizing resource utilization through performance tuning
  • Red Hat Enterprise Performence Tunning was very helpful for linux system administrators to maximizing resource utilization through performance tuning
  • A Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) interested in becoming a Red Hat Certified Specialist or Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA)
  • RedHat Certified Engineer Certification or equivalent knowledge in 7
  • System Administrators to know including,
    • Installing Linux Operating System and entry level commands called (touch,cat,cd,pwd,ls,history,vim,cp,mv)
    • Installing and removing Applications using (yum and rpm)
    • Service and Daemons Handling using systemctl, chkconfig and service commands
    • Basic performence monitoring tools like ps,top,vmstat,sar,awk
    • Basic tunning polices

  • How to conver one unit to another unit
  • Gather system data using profiling tools like vmstat,pcp,pmstat,sar,iostat,mpstat
  • How to apply awk and awk related regular expressions in linux systems
  • Generate graphs using gnuplot
  • Customize gnuplot outputs and graph contents
  • Display graphs of various metrics using Performance Co-Pilot

15 . Comprehensive Review

  • Linux system administrators should be able to demonstrate knowledge and skill of the topics covered in each chapter


A linux system administrator adept at performence tunning knows how to balance and optimize a linux system for a specific purpose

This means also konwing which trade-off and performence penalties are acceptable when attempting to implement a configuration desgined to boost a specific subsystem performence

linux system administrator should be able to obtain, analyze, and interpret system performance metrics, which the business can use to increase cost effectiveness, maximize application performance, and make better decisions about investment in hardware or cloud resources.
