Watch the Free Linux Tutorial: Linux Performance Data Collection Tips

This advanced Linux training teaches you to optimize your application’s performance by acquiring useful performance metrics from the hardware, tracing applications and the Linux kernel, and tuning various aspects of the system, from the hardware to kernel settings and application optimizations.

Course Description

Building upon years of cutting edge requirements in some of the most demanding environments on the planet, the Linux Foundation built this four-day class as a reference in the field of Linux performance tuning. Based on our experience with several major players in the high performance computing industry, we built this performance tuning class to present a wide range of optimization tools and techniques based on the most recent hardware and software technologies. Discussions of the Linux kernel default behaviors are used to present typical scenarios where manual optimization may be required in order to achieve optimal speeds.

March Training Sale The most recent Linux tracing, profiling and instrumentation techniques are covered in such a way that students will, by the end of the class, be properly equipped to handle a large range of performance problems while minimizing analysis time. Modern hardware designs and software programming techniques are presented in a Linux context in order to introduce current industry best practices to students.

Hands-on exercises put theory into practice and ensure that students walk out of the classroom with skills that can be immediately applied to their Linux environment.

Course Materials

As part of your registration, a printed copy of the course manual will be mailed to you. Expect 3-5 days for US delivery and 7-10 days for international deliveries.

This course is primarily intended for system administrators and technology architects who need to select and tune their environment to maximize speed and efficiency. Developers of native applications and anyone involved with technical support of Linux systems and applications will also greatly benefit from learning the tools and concepts covered in this class.


We expect students to be experienced Linux users. Familiarity with local system administration concepts covered in LFS220 - Linux System Administration is required and we assume that the audience is comfortable with standard command line utilities used for file and process management, file editing, and basic shell scripting. This course also builds upon concepts and tools acquired in LFS230 - Linux Network Management.
