Most of the suggestions are generic in nature (get the latest release, make sure you have all patches, etc.), but this paper is updated from time to time with environment changes that lead to better system performance. It is *not* a list of clever tricks, workarounds, or little-known secrets.
Complexity has to go somewhere! This is why Java isn't less compex than C++ for example. You get little of it here, but then you get more of it there. [ January 07, 2006: Message edited by: uj johansson ]
