What Will Be Taught For This IBM Course?
This course expands the basic skill sets that are developed in courses WM102, Technical Introduction to IBM MQ, and WM207 or WM209, IBM MQ V8 System Administration.
This course focuses on features and facilities of IBM MQ, such as clustering and security. Specifically, you learn about implementing a cluster and authenticating connections, channels, and users. Other topics include securing channels with Secure Socket Layer (SSL), channel exit administration, advanced client features, event and message monitoring, and publish/subscribe administration.
In addition to the instructor-led lectures, you participate in handson lab exercises that are designed to reinforce lecture content. The lab exercises use IBM MQ V8.0, giving you practical experience with tasks such as implementing security, configuring a cluster, and advanced troubleshooting techniques.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
Manage client connections and enable client connection functions such as conversation sharing and read ahead to improve performance
Use Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure TCP/IP channels
Authenticate IBM MQ channels, connections, and users
Implement channel exit programs
Group a set of queue managers in a cluster to distribute the workload of message traffic across queues and queue managers
Implement IBM MQ high availability
Monitor application activity, events, and messages
Implement a dead-letter queue message handler
Administer distributed publish/subscribe networks
Administer Java Message Service (JMS) in IBM MQ
Who Should Attend This IBM Training?
This advanced skills course is designed for technical professionals who require advanced administrator skills for IBM MQ on distributed operating systems, or who provide support to others who administer IBM MQ. This course is based on IBM MQ V8 but is also appropriate for students who support prior versions of WebSphere MQ.
Before taking this course, you should have the skills that are required to complete basic IBM MQ system administration tasks in a distributed environment. These skills can be obtained through practical experience or by successfully completing one of the IBM MQ V8 system administration courses for distributed operating systems (WM207 or WM209).
