IBM i Performance Assessment Tool

About this tool

FLiP (Flash IBM i Performance) is an IBM FlashSystem® assessment tool for IBM i workloads developed by IBM.

The best IBM i job candidates for this tool are typically those that are spending proportionally most of their total run time waiting for Read disk I/Os. This tool will help you identify the jobs that could potentially take benefit from IBM FlashSystem© technology in order to improve their runtime performance.


Before starting, you will need an IBM I MGTCOL and/or the performance data created on an available IBM i System. Please refer to this Guide for instructions on how to correctly compile the performance data.

Please note: The tool will process the first 100 jobs from the performance data, we therefore recommend that you filter your input file accordingly.
