Tuning Netfinity Servers for Performance: Getting the most out of Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0 describes what you can do to improve and maximize the performance of your business server applications running on IBM Netfinity hardware based on the Windows 2000 and Windows NT Server 4.0 operating systems.
Part 1 explains the technology implemented in the major Netfinity subsystems, shows what settings can be adjusted to obtain the best performance and gives you advice on what to expect from any changes you consider.
Part 2 provides detailed instructions on the two main performance monitoring tools available: the Performance console and Netfinity Capacity Manager.
Part 3 shows you how to analyze your system to find performance bottlenecks and what to do to eliminate them. Each of the major subsystems covered in Part 1 is closely examined based on a sample analysis of real-life servers, showing what the recommendations are for those particular systems.
Part 4 examines specific performance characteristics of specific server applications: Lotus Notes, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange, Oracle Server, SAP R/3, Windows Terminal Services and a typical file server.
This book is aimed at people who configure Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0 servers and seek to maximize performance
