WAS Performance Redbooks and other useful resources for tuning websphere

The WebSphere Application Server roadmaps on developerWorks at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/zones/was/roadmaps/  list Redbooks, information center topics, articles, books, etc. that customers might find helpful. At this time, there are roadmaps for WAS v6.1 - v8.0. We are working on the WAS v8.5 roadmap and intend to publish it soon.

Foe example the WAS v8.0 roadmap has the following info under "Tuning" at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/zones/was/roadmaps/was8_roadmap.html#TUNIN546

Understand and analyze performance data, troubleshoot performance problems, develop applications that perform better, and tune many aspects of the application serving environment.

Performance This IBM Education Assistant module provides an overview of performance monitoring and tuning.

WebSphere Application Server Performance information This WebSphere Application Server Performance website provides a centralized access to helpful performance reports, tools, and downloads.

Designing and Coding Applications for Performance and Scalability in WebSphere Application Server This Redbooks publication discusses performance and scalability considerations for developing and coding WebSphere Application Server applications.

Performance Monitoring and Best Practices for WebSphere on z/OS This Redbooks publication discusses how to set up an environment that is tuned to meet best performance and at the same can be monitored to catch eventual performance bottlenecks.

WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment - Tuning performance This information center section discusses how to improve performance, including tools and tips for tuning servers and various application types.

Garbage collection in WebSphere Application Server V8, Part 1: Generational as the new default policy In IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 8, the default garbage collection policy uses both generational and concurrent collection strategies. This developerWorks article describes the garbage collection policies available in the IBM Java virtual machine (JVM) and provides a guide for configuring the new default policy.

Garbage collection in WebSphere Application Server V8, Part 2: Balanced garbage collection as a new option IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 8 introduces the new "balanced" garbage collection policy. This technology is optimized for large heaps and aims to even out pause times that are associated with garbage collection. The information in this developerWorks helps you determine whether the balanced collector is a good fit for your applications, and explains how to tune it for maximum performance.

Case study: Tuning WebSphere Application Server V7 and V8 for Performance IBM WebSphere Application Server supports an ever-growing range of applications, each with their own unique set of features, requirements, and services. Just as no two applications use an application server in exactly the same way, no single set of tuning parameters likely provides the best performance for any two different applications. Most applications generally realize some performance improvement from tuning in three core areas: the JVM, thread pools, and connection pools. This developerWorks article uses the Apache DayTrader Peformance Benchmark Sample application to demonstrate what you can tune and how to tune it, depending on the major server components and resources that your application uses.
