IBM MQ - MQ Operations and Administration for z/OS

4 hours



This course looks at the differences between traditional MQ, and how it is implemented and run in a z/OS environment. It discusses the use of z/OS datasets and files that need to be created as well as the procedures used to enable MQ in z/OS. You will see how traditional MQ commands map to z/OS, and how MQ resources are managed using z/OS online facilities and batch utilities. Security for MQ resources on z/OS is examined along with tools and utilities used for monitoring aspects of MQ performance.


This course is designed for system administrators/programmers, system architects, and application developers.
