This three-day course describes and explains how to design, set up and administer effective IBM MQ clustering. A significant feature of this course is the time devoted to extensive practical exercises. The exercises are conducted in a Windows environment, but the principles learned are relevant to all IBM MQ implementations, including z/OS
Experience of administering IBM MQ in a Linux, UNIX and/or Windows environment, or in a z/OS Environment
This three day course explains the key features and tools available to diagnose and fix problems when using IBM MQ for z/OS. The flow of control and data from a user application through MQ to another application is considered with emphasis on possible problem areas. The course covers the use of tools such as GTF trace, SVC dumps, IPCS dump formatter, and the formatting of WMQ related SMF records. Diagnostic and tuning considerations for the Boot Strap Data sets (BSDS), Page Data sets (DPS), Log data sets, Buffer pools, Storage classes, and Queues will be covered
A good technical understanding of the MQSeries for z/OS and z/OS environments
This course introduces the IBM MQ RACF Interface. The course describes and explains how RACF is implemented within a MQ environment
Attendees should have a clear understanding of z/OS at a conceptual level. Have a basic understanding of RACF that can be gained by attending the Understanding RACF  class. Should have a familiarity of MQ and knowledge of TSO/ISPF and JCL is also required
This course is specifically aimed at those organizations using IBM MQ on multiple platforms. The course is suitable for organizations using all IBM MQ versions up to and including IBM MQ Version 9. The course covers the operation, administration, and support of IBM MQ systems in z/OS and in multi-platform environments (Linux, Windows and/or Windows). The course teaches the skills required to install, configure, and manage an IBM MQ messaging system.
An understanding of distributed computing environments, as well as skills in IBM z/OS
This three-day course is suitable for organizations using all currently supported IBM MQ versions, up to and including IBM MQ Version 9. The course covers the operation, administration, and support of IBM MQ systems in multi-platform environments (Linux, UNIX and/or Windows). The course teaches the skills required to install, configure, and manage an IBM MQ messaging system. It is a 'hands-on' course with several challenging practical exercises using a Windows platform.
Attendees must be familiar with IBM MQ at a conceptual and terminological level. This can be achieved by attending the course MQS1- Technical Introduction to IBM MQ, or through prior practical experience. Attendees must also have a working knowledge of their Linux, UNIX or Windows environments.
