AIX lifecycle by Release
User Rating: / 0

I am sure you have seen the notice - it has been repeated for the third time now on Support Life Cycle Notice for AIX 6.1 Technology Level 7 and the nearly identical document Support Life Cycle Notice for AIX 7.1 Technology Level 1 (only the document numbers are different).

Have you also followed any of the links below in the documents. One leads to a ducument entitled AIX support lifecycle information .

An excerpt from this document makes me think, although unannounced, that now is the time to plan for migration to AIX 7.1, rather than just upgrade your AIX 6.1 TL level.

ATTCP - Another Test TCP program
User Rating: / 0

What is ATTCP?

Quick link: latest version is: aixtools.attcp.

ATTCP is a netwerk exercisor and, especially, bandwith measurement tool developed specifically for AIX (perhaps ATTCP also stands for AIX TTCP Innocent) and testing high-speed networks - e.g., 10GBit and faster.



With the arrival of 10GBit networks I was having a very difficult time getting reliable results when testing of the POWER virtual ethernets with and without VIOS; effect of settings such as largesend, etc.. I tried several very popular programs - such as iperf - but they were not reliable - the results were quite different each time I ran the program.

I was sure I could better.
