Solution Areas & Offerings

Security, Access Management & Compliance

Performance Management & Server Optimisation

Large servers are expensive and getting the most out of them is paramount. This particularly applies to customers with the IBM Power E1080, the larger IBM Power S1024's and their Power9 predecessors (E980 and S924)

One of the best kept secrets in the IBM i world, GiAPA offers a number of "first's" in performance management, notably ...
  1. Automatically collecting program (example) and file information (example, inefficient I/Os) for jobs using serious CPU ... whilst only using less than 0.1% CPU itself !!
  2. Fully automated performance analysis of all jobs (ie including ones you thought were doing rather well) - an IBM expert stated "this will probably find up to 80% of commonly seen inefficiencies in the applications"
  3. Automated collection of Plan Cache data (example) needed to use IBM's SQL analyzing tools with the ACS - to improve default SQL paths chosen by the IBM SQL Query Engine.
