These PDF documents get released, I should say updated, fairly often (read after announcements).

As I have not had time to dig through the presentations of last week (@ Power Champions, Orlando) I hope bringing this link will help you keep your documentation up to date

Performance Benchmarks

Another interesting page is IBM Power Systems performance benchmarks. Last week some "soon to be published" benchmarks were mentioned.

AIX performance help texts PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Manuals are often - behind the times - especially for performance options. I have known for a long time that the option "-h option_name" will give me the definitive help text for a performance command, but lacking a manual I lacked a complete listing.

aixtools as installp downloads! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

One of my pet projects is porting to AIX. I call this effort "AIXTOOLS ". and opened the download area here ! Nothing fancy. I wanted fancy, but dont have the time. So Simple instead!

Earlier this year I started at compiling a newer version of apache, or httpd - from the source. There were little things that went wrong, things I did not like and I started communicating with the nice people at ASF HTTPD project. Being stubborn I tried NOT to learn how to read an RPM.spec file. Instead I set about cleaning up a previous attempt to use the AIX tool mkinstallp. This was successful, and I even packaged it! (install aixtools.buildaix and try the comand buildaix - works great for most OpenSource projects)!

The results - I cannot guarantee that they all work as I have not tested ALL of them - can be found at AIXTOOLS. This is using the ASF.httpd.powerpc.242.I Note: you will als need the ASF.apr, ASF.apu and aixtools.pcre packages as well. And you might need to install an extra fileset from AIX CDs. I'll get around to getting the dependancies in the package - someday. I decided that "now is the time", rather than wait for them to finish.

Do keep me posted on successes and failures! I will respond as I have time!

Cookies are fattening! PDF Print E-mail

FYI: There is a new telecommunicatinos law that is attempting to regulate the use of cookies on websites. ROOTVG.net does not use cookies for commercial reasons. The only reason/cookie I know of is one to maintain your forum login for 60 minutes by default. I have changed this default value to zero (0) but may change that to one (1) if zero behaves as if the setting is indefinite.

We are looking into what needs to be done to deactivate all cookies - as we do not use them ourselves - other than perhaps as the convience they were meant to provide to you.

If you are concerned, please block cookies from rootvg.net. Updates to come!

Written by Michael Felt   

The month has been a bad one for blogs - see excuses, er reasons, in the title. And this shall continue for a while - because I am going on a vacation and I am not taking a computer, smart phone, etc.. I am taking regular, old-fashioned (heavy) books.

Not that I expect you to care Wink, but so you know! Cool
