Overview: IBM recognizes Linux as an operating system suitable for enterprise-level applications that run on IBM systems. Most enterprise applications are now available on Linux, including file and print servers, database servers, Web servers, and collaboration and mail servers. The use of Linux in an enterprise-class server requires monitoring performance and, when necessary, tune the server to remove bottlenecks that affect users. The purpose of this paper is to explain how to analyze and tune the Linux operating system to yield superior performance for any type of application planned to run on these systems.
