Live Virtual Classes

Upcoming Past z/VM LVCs Past Linux on System z LVCs Past z/VSE LVCs

General Information
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 all again.

Upcoming Live Virtual Classes (LVC)

Date: Tuesday, December 16, 2014 or Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Topic: Part II of Linux on System z Disk I/O Performance - setups which are commonly used and their performance
Speaker: Mustafa Mesanovic, Linux Architecture and Performance, IBM Germany
Abstract: 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 workload.
  • Benefit of additional setups - e.g. use of HiperPAV Aliases for DASD, datarouter=1 for SCSI etc.
