Course
d
escription

This four
-
day, instructor
-
le
d course teaches the
intermediate
skills req
uired by an administrator of a
n

IBM WebS
phere MQ
clustered environment.


This course is essential for anyone
responsible for the design and administration of WebSphere MQ solutions that include MQ
clusters
.
Through lecture and labs,
students
learn how to set

up simple clusters, design and set

up

a sophisticated cluster,
manage clusters
,
perform full repository re
-
assignment
,
accomplish
queue manager cluster removal,
and use diagnostics to
determine problems within an MQ cluster.



General
i
nformation

D
elivery method:

Classroom


Audience:


This is

an
intermediate
course for technical
professionals

who
need

clustering

administrator skills




for any of the
WebSphere MQ products.

While this course is based on WebSphere MQ V6, it is




also appropriate for
people

who
support
prior versions of WebSp
here MQ
clusters
on
distributed




platforms
.


Learning objectives
:

After completing this course, students should be able to:



E
xplain the basic concepts of an MQ cluster



S
et up a simple cluster



U
se administrative commands to manage an MQ cluster



D
escribe
problems that may be encountered with MQ clusters
,

as well as tools and techniques
for isolating these problems



E
xplain the concepts of workload management



D
efine marooned messages and discuss alternatives for handling them



D
escribe security, recovery
,

and

failover considerations necessary when designing a cluster, as
well as disaster planning and testing



I
mplement a complex MQ cluster including more than three queue managers



L
ist the design considerations for a WebSphere MQ clustering solution, including t
he use of
multiple overlapping clusters and techniques for dividing very large organizations of systems



D
efine the process to incorporate non
-
cluster WebSphere MQ queue managers into a cluster
,
i
ncluding security considerations when using a gateway approac
h



D
escribe cluster workload exits


Prerequisites:


Before taking this course, students should
have practical experience in working with
IBM




WebSphere MQ
, and complete
any

one

of the following courses (or have equivalent experience):



WebSphere MQ System

Administration (Windows
)
(
Course MQ151, WM151, or VM151)



WebSphere MQ System Administration (AIX)

(
Course MQ152, WM152, or VM152)



WebSpher
e MQ System Administration (Sun
)

(
Course MQ155, WM155, or VM155)



WebSphere MQ System Administration for iSeries

(Cour
se MQ160)



WebSphere MQ for z/OS System Administration

(Course MQ
201
)


Duration:


4

days
