Red Hat Enterprise Performance Tuning with Exam (RH443)

Gain a better understanding of the methods of performance tuning for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

GK# 1169 Vendor# RH443

Course Overview


Red Hat Enterprise Performance Tuning teaches senior Linux system administrators about performance tuning for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this course, you will learn about system architecture with an emphasis on understanding the implications on system performance, methods for testing the effects of performance adjustments, open source benchmarking utilities, methods for analyzing system and networking performance, and tuning configurations for specific application loads.

This course can help you prepare for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Performance Tuning exam (EX442). This version of the course includes the exam.

Note: Global Knowledge and Red Hat do not guarantee that anyone who takes one or all of the courses in the Red Hat certification program will pass a Red Hat exam. On-the-job experience, in combination with high-quality training, is the best way to build skills and prepare for a Red Hat exam. The exam itself is a hands-on learning experience, and many of those who do not pass on the first try come away with knowledge of what they need to work on to pass the exam on a re-take.


Upon passing the exam, if you are an RHCE, you will receive a Certificate of Expertise for Enterprise Performance Tuning.
