Module 1: Infrastructure and Capacity Planning for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
This module provides the high level information that is required for an administrator to perform sizing for an instance of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. To perform this sizing, an administrator must combine his or her understanding of the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 architecture, and the performance characteristics with relevant information on how Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will be used.
In this module, you learn the fundamentals of the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 system architecture. Sizing guidelines and benchmarks are included to use as references. Additionally, the guidelines and benchmarks are provided with a sample set of questions to ask a company that relate to performance.
Module 2: Configuration Best Practices
This module discusses many of the settings that affect the performance of Microsoft SQL Server 2012, the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 client, and the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Application Object Server (AOS).
This module also describes how to create maintenance plans so that the database continues to run more efficiently.
Module 3: Database Design Considerations
This module describes design techniques that can improve database performance in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
Module 4: X++ SQL Code Best Practices
This module discusses the two primary ways to make a single query run faster—index tuning and query tuning. Index tuning improves a query's performance by adding indexes, and query tuning improves a query's performance by rewriting the query.
Module 5: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 X++ Coding for Performance Best Practices
In this module, you will learn the common performance design patterns and the correct code placement when you develop customizations for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. You will learn how to develop batch jobs and consider tasks with parallelism, and you will also explore the techniques to use to limit client-side running code on forms.
Module 6: Post-Implementation: Monitoring and Performance
This module describes how to monitor and tune the performance of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
