CHANGE mode. The scripts make all of the tuning modifications that are defined in the amtune-env file, except for Directory Server. For information, see Chapter 3, Directory Server Tuning.
In either mode, the scripts return a list of tuning recommendations to the amtune debug log file and the terminal window. The location of the log file is determined by the com.iplanet.services.debug.directory parameter in the AMConfig.properties file. The default debug directory depends on your platform:
Solaris systems: /var/opt/SUNWam/debug
Linux and HP-UX systems: /var/opt/sun/identity/debug
Windows systems: javaes-install-directory\identity\debug where the default value for javaes-install-directory is C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5.
Tuning is an iterative process that can vary for different deployments. The Access Manager tuning scripts try to apply the optimal tuning parameter settings. However, each deployment is unique and might require further customization to suit specific requirements.
Therefore, it is recommended that you first run a script in REVIEW mode and check the recommended changes in the amtune debug log file. Run the scripts in CHANGE mode only after you have reviewed the recommended tuning changes that will be applied to your deployment.
