Overview

This course provides the skills that are necessary to configure and manage an IBM MQ V8 queue manager on z/OS.

Through lectures and hands-on lab exercises, you learn how to install, customize, operate, and administer IBM MQ V8. The course covers configuring a z/OS queue manager, setting up distributed queuing, IBM MQ clustering, IBM MQ on z/OS recovery and restart, security, and performance considerations. It also covers day-to-day administration and problem recovery. The hands-on lab exercises give you direct experience with IBM MQ V8 tasks such as defining and monitoring channels, configuring IBM MQ clusters, and problem determination activities.
