The not-quite-so-numerous joys of performance tuning the AIX
I began writing some shell script
s to benchmark the monster today, and did pretty well. So did the monster, cranking out invoices and who-knows-what left and right, its performance just shy of the AS/400
. That boss-like individual stopped by and was quite surprised by my recent progress and was happy to learn that
The AIX was up and running, doing business transactions like there was no tomorrow,
The benchmarking scripts would probably run on the Solaris boxen and possibly other platforms as well.
In fact, he was so overjoyed he wanted a report on the progress. Sigh. That is the reason I'm still at work
waiting for the monster to churn out some numbers
and pretty pictures
to include in the report.
Well, at least the weather is improving. I'll ask some of my cute girl
s-on-standby if they feel up to some mexican beer
and lounging in the sun tomorrow.
OK, that's pretty much it. Got some work out
