Red Hat Enterprise Performance Tuning – RH442 teaches senior Linux system administrators about performance tuning and capacity planning for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems.
Red Hat Enterprise Performance Tuning is one of emerging technology courses. This series of courses focuses on Red Hat’s evolving technologies. Emerging technology courses are feature-and functionality-focused and are conducted like guided labs.
This course discusses system architecture with emphasis on understanding the implications on system performance, methods for testing the effects of performance adjustments, open source benchmarking utilities, methods for analyzing system and networking performance and tuning configurations for specific application loads.
RH442 will prepare you for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Performance Tuning exam – EX442. After passing EX442 you will become Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Performance Tuning. This certification is part of the Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) path and EX442 can be recognized as one of the five required exams.
