Training The Linux Foundation

Training goals dlearning

code: LFS426

This four-day course is designed to give you all the tools and techniques you need to keep your Linux systems running at optimal levels. These techniques and tools have been developed and tested in the most demanding high-performance computing environments.

In this course, you’ll learn:

  • Industry configuration best practices
  • The best tried-and-true optimization performance tuning tools and techniques
  • How to manually optimize the kernel’s behavior
  • Tracing, profiling and instrumentation techniques across a wide range of conditions
  • And more.

This course is designed to work with a wide range of Linux distributions, so you will be able to apply these concepts regardless of your distro.
