Erik will present on the topic of IBM i performance. Gone are the days of “simply” adding memory to get better performance.  Erik will cover topics from monitoring to basic tuning.  Expect to learn when and how to use the myriad of IBM i tools available.  Some of these tools are legacy green screen Licensed Program Products, others are PC based compliments, and of course IBM’s System i Navigator.
