z Systems Technical University, Dublin 18-22 May 2015, Slides

(Originally posted 2015-06-02.)

As most people know, I thoroughly enjoy conferences and learn a lot. The Dublin one 18 – 22 May was no exception.

It was great to meet up with old friends, connect with potential new ones and have a couple of compromising πŸ™‚ photos of myself and friends to prove it. πŸ™‚

But you probably don’t care much about that – unless you’re in those photos. πŸ™‚ So here are the slides from the three presentations I wrote:

Each of these has been updated in some way, so let me say a very few words about them…

DB2 Through My Eyes

This one is the new one for this conference. It was trailed early in its life in Proposed “DB2 Through My Eyes” Presentation and got its first outing in Dublin. I think it went well. So well in fact that I’m wondering about doing something similar for CICS. [1]

Time For D.I.M.E?

This is an update on one I’ve had around for a while – and which I honestly thought I’d blogged on. It’s about whether “laterzEC12, early z13” era is a good time to be embarking on a Data In Memory Exploitation (DIME) project. [2]

zIIP Capacity Planning

Updated for z13 and Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) with some slides borrowed from Horst Sinram.

  1. Well it wouldn’t be all that similar.  ↩

  2. Hint: It is. πŸ™‚  ↩
