SAN Academy: An Online Educational Series for SAN Professionals
IntelliMagic SAN Academy is an ongoing, virtual academy that offers free online educational sessions on a wide variety of performance, configuration, and capacity issues designed to help you learn at your convenience.
Understanding Physical Sequential Datasets
Oftentimes it is sufficient to analyze I/O performance without needing to understand the datasets. The SMF 42 records are useful to obtain a deeper understanding of the datasets and the applications that are using the storage.
Storage Capacity Planning 101
This webinar covers best practices for capacity planning for SAN storage & fabric with a focus on resource capacity and space capacity of storage arrays and fabric.
Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) Filtering Capabilities & Benefits
The goal of analyzing Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) usage is to ultimately manage and reduce your MSU usage, and thus MLC costs.
Avoid MLC Charges on Unintended Usage Data Using SMF 89 Records
The SMF 89 record type stores the CPU of each registered Sub-Capacity product over time. This is useful for avoiding MLC charges on unintended usage and much more.
Getting to Know Your WebSphere for z/OS Workload
There are many areas of WebSphere that can leave even a seasoned z/OS performance specialist scratching their head. The SMF 120-9 records give us a great way to measure and understand our WebSphere workloads like never before.
SAN Fabric 102: Emerging Technologies, Performance Analysis, and Common Issues
The purpose of this webinar is to provide insight into emerging technologies, performance analysis and common issues related to a storage network.
Don’t Overlook Supply Chain Disruptions in Your Disaster Recovery Plan
Learn how to mitigate the risk posed by supply chain disruptions by taking a closer look at your disaster recovery plan.
