Abstract

The Performance Tuning Guide describes how to optimize the performance of a system running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. It also documents performance-related upgrades in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
While this guide contains procedures that are field-tested and proven, Red Hat recommends that you properly test all planned configurations in a testing environment before applying it to a production environment. You should also back up all your data and pre-tuning configurations.
