MQ Administration Part 2

Code: MQA2

Description

The course will help delegates prepare for the IBM MQ System Administration Exam number 000-374. Due to the various platforms supported by IBM MQ the certification, and hence this course, is multi-platform in content.

Audience

This is an advanced course for technical professionals who perform advanced administrator tasks for IBM MQ on z/OS or on distributed platforms, or who provide support to others performing these tasks. It will also be of great value to delegates seeking to pass the IBM exam 000-374 as it looks at a number of past papers from earlier courses. The course is delivered at the latest release level, but can cover earlier releases on request.

Prerequisites

Attendance on MQ Administration z/OS Part 1, or a similar level of understanding is required.

Objectives

The course will answer the perennial MQ questions:

  • Where has my message gone?
  • Why is my system so slow?
  • What are the new Version 7 Features?
  • How can I read and interpret the logs?
  • Error Handling.


After completing this course delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the MQ environment.
  • Handle all aspects of Logging.
  • Configure remote access and client server environments.
  • Implement aspects of security in a distributed queuing environment.
  • Improve the performance of MQ, taking into account the requirements of the installation.
  • Explain the scope of automated function that is available to support the management of a MQ network.
  • Understand and appreciate MQ Clustering.
  • Develop, publish and subscribe environments.
