Video: The Era of Self-Tuning Servers

“Servers today have hundreds of knobs that can be tuned for performance and energy efficiency. While some of these knobs can have a dramatic effect on these metrics, manually tuning them is a tedious task. It is very labor intensive, it requires a lot of expertise, and the tuned settings are only relevant for the hardware and software that were used in the tuning process. In addition to that, manual tuning can’t take advantage of application phases that may each require different settings. In this presentation, we will talk about the concept of dynamic tuning and its advantages. We will also demo how to improve performance using manual tuning as well as dynamic tuning using DatArcs Optimizer.”
