Duration: 
4 days
Codes: 
WM312G
Versions: 
V8

Overview

  • This course focuses on advanced IBM MQ for z/OS skills. After a baseline of IBM MQ topics, the course continues with channel security, the need to use TLS ciphers in response to current security threats, and channel authorization rules. The course also covers queue-sharing groups, queue-sharing group updates, and distributed and intra-group queuing with queue-sharing groups. Other topics include the 8-byte relative byte address and buffers above the 2-GB bar features of IBM MQ V8, the use of IBM MQ accounting and statistics, how to capture and review information to resolve or mitigate performance and capacity problems, and how to create application profiles.
  • Hands-on lab exercises throughout the course reinforce the lectures and provide familiarity with advanced tasks and updated capabilities.
