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,
Julie Liesenfelt, IBM Advanced
Technical Support (please mention "Linux and z/VM Webcasts" in the subject
line of your email to Julie).

z/VM 6.2 Live Guest Relocation with Linux Middleware
Speaker: Michael Johanssen, Linux on System z System & Performance
Evaluation, IBM Boeblingen, Germany
z/VM Live Guest Relocation is covered under two aspects: First, z/VM
system considerations address the principal concepts of z/VM Single
System Image (SSI) and z/VM Live guest relocation (LGR). ISFC logical
link configurations are addressed with respect to the influence that the
number of FICON channels, and the number of FICON CTC devices per FICON
channel have on the relocation performance, as observed through the
principal z/VM metrics for evaluating LGR performance, the Relocation
Time and the Quiesce Time. Second, Linux middleware is inspected,
evaluating the influence that specific types of Linux applications have
on relocation performance. The relocation behavior of three different
workloads: a Java application, a FileSystem application and a
Transactional database application, is analyzed. For each application
type, application specific parameters are varied in order to evaluate
their influence on the relocation process.
