3 Day(s)


With IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.2.3, users can manage their systems graphically, dynamically, and flexibly. A browser-enabled interface helps transform systems management data into information that you need to keep systems available. In this course you learn how to implement Tivoli Monitoring. This training is provided in a classroom environment with multiple opportunities for hands-on lab practice. The scenarios used in this class are based on using IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.2.3.


This intermediate course is for anyone responsible for implementing IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.2.3.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
