This course teaches you to optimize your system’s performance by acquiring useful performance metrics from the hardware, tracing applications and the Linux kernel, and tuning various aspects of the system, including both hardware and kernel settings.and optimizations.
Linux Performance Tuning takes into account years of cutting edge experience in meeting requirements in some of the most demanding environments. The Linux Foundation developed this four-day course to stand as a reference in the field of performance tuning for Linux.
Based on our experience with several major players in the high performance computing industry, we developed this course 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.
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 leave the class with skills that can be immediately applied to their Linux environment.
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. Note, however:
- This course is primarily geared towards system administrators and does not assume or teach kernel or application programming skills.
- This course is primarily based on optimizing the system as a whole, not on optimizing individual applications.
We expect students to be experienced Linux users. Familiarity with local system administration concepts covered in LFS220: Linux System Administration is required. Fuithermore, 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 equivalent to those acquired in LFS230: Linux Network Management.
