PERFORMANCE AND TUNING OF THE UNIX OPERATING SYSTEM
Milan Tichý - Petr Zemánek
This article defines basic measures for the UNIX operating system
performance. We present methods for performance monitoring,
interpretating the results of measurement, and performance tuning.
Methods for increasing the performance of processes are discussed.
An example of measuring and finding optimal values of the kernel
tunable parameters is presented.
Keywords: operating system, process, file system, performance tuning
