Tuning IBM AIX 5.3 and AIX 6.1 for Oracle Database
This paper discusses performance analysis and tuning for Oracle workloads on IBM AIX 5.3 and IBM AIX 6.1 configurations. Oracle performance tuning is a vital part of the management and administration of successful database systems. The reader will learn how best to exploit the specific performance features of AIX 5.3 and AIX 6.1 on IBM POWER systems when running an Oracle database (including Simultaneous MultiThreading [SMT] and IBM Micro-Partitioning technology). There is a discussion of many performance-tuning tools and configuration options to control memory usage, process execution and I/O.
