Product details and specifications


HPE Application Tuner Express (HPE-ATX) is a utility for HPE Linux customers to enable their applications to achieve maximum performance while running on larger x86 servers. With HPE-ATX application execution is aligned with the data in memory resulting in increased performance even on servers with four sockets. HPE-ATX is available for any HPE x86 servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) operating systems.

Upgrade Requirement:


Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.

To get the list of all dependency files for hpe-atx, type:


rpm -qp - -requires hpe-atx-< version >.rpm



·         Initial release supporting the HPE Integrity Superdome X Server.

·         Added support for HPE ProLiant BL660c Gen9, DL560 Gen9, and DL580 Gen9 Servers.




Since HPE-ATX runs alongside your application(s) no changes in your application are required to realize the performance benefits from HPE-ATX.  For example a standard Oracle Data base realized a nearly 30% increase in performance running this utility. You can see the results of this testing on the HPE benchmark site and select Superdome X

These performance gains are possible as many x86 applications in use today were designed for older 2 and 4-socket systems. No consideration for scaling these applications onto larger socket systems was designed in leading to significant application performance issues on large systems.

HPE-ATX helps applications run much more efficiently and perform better in larger system configurations.

Documentation on how to run HPE-ATX can be found in the Using HPE-ATX document.
