Set the heap size and determine whether the heap can be made smaller or needs to be larger in size.
Examine and analyze the following tunable information: JVM heap size, thread pool size, connection pool size, and data source statement cache size.
Virtual hosts are separate hosts which can be run from the same server as a main host or site.
Create a number of virtual hosts for different purposes; some will be IP-based and others will be non-IP or name based.
Tracing provides the capability to review the sequence of events and methods executing at the WebSphere Application Server code level. It can be helpful in determining where problems are occurring; that information can then be used to diagnosis and resolve the problem.
Use the trace string to specify the level of detail of the trace.
It is possible to trace a single class file, the entire WebSphere Application Server code library, or levels in between.
Given a series of problems, determine whether the guidelines and best practices presented in class would resolve, minimize, or avoid the issue in question.
