Personnel that will be responsible for design, set up and administration of IBM MQ clustering.
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.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Explain clustering terminology and basic clustering concepts
- Describe how a cluster works
- Implement a cluster and perform common administrative tasks
- Recognize the symptoms of frequently encountered problems and solve them
- Evaluate and exploit the range of workload management options
- Use distributed queuing techniques to connect Queue Managers inside a cluster to Queue Managers outside a cluster
- Configure overlapping clusters
- Outline how clusters support distributed publish/subscribe
- Take steps to render a cluster secure
- Discuss clustering current best practices
Experience of administering IBM MQ in a Linux, UNIX and/or Windows environment, or in a z/OS Environment.
