Course Details

This 3-day course introduces IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler 8.6 features, environment, and terminology. You learn about the features in Tivoli Workload Scheduler 8.6 for distributed environments and how to use the IBM Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console to manage Tivoli Workload Scheduler. You also learn how to monitor production workflow, and to plan, implement, and manage Tivoli Workload Scheduler objects to create a production day plan. Production workflow consists of job and job stream instances, which are designed using plan objects such as job definitions, prompts, dependencies, and recovery options. You manage changes to objects, the plan, jobs, events, and job streams. You also learn how to optimize production workflow and troubleshoot plan problems. In addition to classic batch scheduling, the use of dynamic workload and events is introduced.
