Код курса  Код: (GL325) H2UW1S    Заявка  Предварительная запись    Продолжительность  Кол-во часов: 32 , Кол-во дней: 4

This class meets the needs of advanced Linux systems administrators expanding their knowledge of the core workings of Linux. Theories and methodologies are covered for tuning, monitoring performance, and analyzing the performance of the Linux operating system.


An intermediate knowledge of the Linux operating system is required. The equivalent knowledge can be found in the U8583S “Linux Fundamentals” and H7091S “Enterprise Linux Systems Administration” courses 

Supported distributions 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 

Course objectives

  • Learn principles and methods of system tuning
  • Understand Linux architecture
  • Use system and networking benchmark tools for understanding system capabilities
  • Diagnose complex performance and functional system problems
  • Learn to profile system hardware and applications
  • Analyze system performance to identify patterns
  • Learn methods of remote system monitorin
