Performance and Capacity Management for Hyper-V 2012

With the release of Windows / Hyper-V 2012, Microsoft’s key virtualization solution moves ever closer to its main rival VMware. With its more mature functionality set and aggressive pricing strategy, Hyper-V starts to look like a real contender for virtualizing key production, development and testing environments.
The presentation will provide an essential guide for people who have an interest in understanding the performance and capacity implications of Windows / Hyper-V 2012 and will discuss the following:

·         Updates to the functionality

·         Comparison between VMware and Hyper-V

·         Metrics and monitoring

·         Capacity planning

10:15am – 10:30am

SMF 113 Processor Cache Counter Measurements - Overview, Update, and Usage

The SMF 113 measurements record measurements are designed to provide insight into the movement of data and instruction among the processor cache and memory areas. These measurements will be invaluable to help quantify the net effect the usage of the processor caches have on the MIPS capacity of a processor. The SMF 113 measurements have become the basis for IBM’s LSPRs for processor sizing.

During this presentation Peter Enrico explain concept of processor caching on zArchitecture processors, the counters available in the SMF 113 record, formulas that make the counters come alive, examples of how the counters could be used. Discussed will be the concept and importance of RNI, L1MP, and several other important performance indicators. Also discussed will be the latest updates and uses of the SMF 113 processor cache counter measurements.

12:00pm – 1:00pm

Introduction to WLM Management of CICS and IMS Workloads

CICS and IMS transactions can either be managed by the velocity goals assigned to the regions, or managed towards the response time goals assigned to the transactions. WLM management of the regions toward the goals of the transactions is known as WLM server management.        

During this presentation Peter Enrico will introduce the concepts of WLM server management, and provide guidelines to ensure an optional WLM setup for CICS and IMS transaction workloads. Guides and recommendations are key ingredients of this presentation.

2:30pm – 2:45pm

Memory Management in Windows Guest Machines

Windows machines running under virtualization are subject to memory management from two distinct sources. VMware manages the physical memory consumed by guest machines aggressively in order to minimize the memory footprint in order to increase the number of virtual machines that can be run on a single physical host. Significant memory savings are possible, for example, by sharing duplicate pages across similarly configured virtual machines.

The second agent involved in memory management is the Windows Guest OS, which generally pursues a different goal; namely, minimizing page fault delays by aggressively caching older virtual memory pages in physical memory to avoid time-consuming paging operations to physical disk.

How these two different memory management policies interact and potentially collide is the subject of this presentation. Results from several experiments where memory contention is introduced in the virtual environment are also presented, and the interpretation of the performance measurement data to monitor memory usage reported in both VMware and Windows are discussed.
