Live Virtual Classes
IBM offers education on a variety of z/VM, Linux on System z
and z/VSE topics in the form of "Live Virtual Classes" (LVC).
The day of the LVC broadcast,
you can see the charts and listen to the speaker "live".
In addition, you are able (and are encouraged) to ask questions of the
speaker during a Q&A session following the prepared presentation.
Please register for the section you wish to attend.
Each LVC lasts approximately one hour, including Q&A.
The day following each LVC, we plan to post the
the charts here in PDF format. Shortly thereafter we plan to
provide a replay where you can read the charts, hear the
recording and the Q&As.
You are welcome to read the charts or listen to the playbacks
when you can't participate 'live' or even if you wish to hear it
For automatic notification of changes to this page, including
additions to the schedule, click on the "Notify me" link
in the navigation section on the left.
To be reminded of these virtual classes via email,
please mention "Linux and z/VM Webcasts" in the subject
line of your email to Stephanie.

Mustafa Mesanovic, Linux Architecture and Performance, IBM Germany
The second part of Linux on System z Disk I/O Performance will introduce
some setups which are commonly used, and their performance:
A view on the relative performance differences between SCSI and DASD.
Some disk setups for use cases with OLTP-like workload and FTP server
