What you will learn
This Oracle WebLogic Server 12c: Performance Tuning Workshop teaches you how to monitor the effects of a running
Oracle WebLogic Server application on the overall system. Expert Oracle University instructors will teach you through
interactive instruction, walking you through new concepts, while diving into real-world applications.
Learn how to:
Describe a typical performance methodology.
Use a load-testing tool such as the Grinder.
Use command-line and graphical tools such as jps, jcmd, Java VisualVM, Mission Control, and Flight Recorder.
Generate and analyze performance data.
Tune operating system resources.
Tune Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and Oracle WebLogic Server parameters.
Benefits to You
Taking this course will help you develop the skills to increase the performance and scalability of your organization’s
applications and services with the Oracle WebLogic Server -- the world's #1 application server. You'll learn how to
simplify deployment and significantly improve time-to-market.
Tune the System
This training also teaches you how to tune the system at different levels to ensure that applications run smoothly without
overtaxing available resources. In addition, walk away with an understanding of how performance-test data is generated,
gathered, analyzed, and saved.
Identify Performance Differences
Finally, you'll learn how to use a combination of tools to examine system resource, Java Virtual Machine, and Oracle
WebLogic Server runtime metrics so that you can identify performance differences before and after configuration
changes. You'll also practice analyzing these differences to determine the settings that optimize application
