Get to the root of client/server performance problems... and solve them without the usual trial-and-error! Want to overcome typical problems that hamper client/server performance and deliver a poor return on client/server investments? Then use these system-tuning solutions that make a client/server system perform the way it's supposed to. System architect Sid Wise gives you an end-to-end look at client/server applications, how they are designed, and how they interact with their environment to show you how to locate and fix sources of poor performance. Most client/server applications that are delivered today fail to meet users' performance expectations. Specific vendors' tools address only localized parts of the problem. Client/Server Performance Tuning examines all tiers of client/server applications and points you toward hidden pockets of speed-robbing processing. When applications degrade system performance, you can use the book's technical problem-solving options and situation management tips. Learn how to: Identify bottlenecks and performance hogs; Measure the actual effect of tuning changes; Tune an application and its environment; Handle a performance crisis; Make realistic trade-offs between various tuning approaches; Avoid making performance worse while tuning. Complete with coverage of UNIX, MVS, Windows NT, and OS/2 environments, Client/Server Performance Tuning is an indispensable reference for application designers, developers, and project managers.
