Course Overview

In this course the student will learn how to optimize the performance of the SUSE Enterprise Linux Server 11. They will understand the concept of System Optimization and methodologies that are used to monitor, analyse and tune SLES 11 systems. They will be exposed to the general troubleshooting techniques and recovery techniques.

Training Level: 4 - Advanced

Duration: 4 Days

Key Objectives

Students will learn general and applied troubleshooting methodologies for SLE 11. As well as being introduced first to monitor, analyse and tune SLES 11 systems over the 1st and 2nd days. As an integral component of System Optimization, tools are discussed, which can help determine system bottlenecks and assist the Optimization engineer in the complete optimization process.

In the troubleshooting section, general troubleshooting techniques are covered on the 3rd day, with the most affective applied troubleshooting and recovery techniques rounding out the 4th day.

Audience Summary

This course is applicable to System Administrators and engineers seeking to improve their optimization and troubleshooting skills on SLES 11.

This information is valuable to those that wish to learn the methodologies of SUSE Linux Enterprise tuning to apply in their own environments.
