This 3-day Course introduces IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler 8.6 features, environment, and terminology.

Course Outline

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. Training occurs in a classroom environment (or online in an instructor-led format) with hands-on labs to reinforce concepts through production scenarios.

Course Objectives
  • Describe Tivoli Workload Scheduler concepts and terminology
  • Describe the components of Tivoli Workload Scheduler, including scheduling objects and dependencies
  • Use the Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console to monitor and manage Tivoli Workload Scheduler production workflow
  • Submit predefined job streams and jobs into the current plan
  • Solve common problems that arise in the production day plan
  • List the steps for planning a job stream
  • Configure Tivoli Workload Scheduler objects such as jobs, job streams, resources, prompts, and calendars
  • Use the Graphical View to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot workloads
  • Describe the effects that start-of-day and time zones have on Tivoli Workload Scheduler job streams
  • Create event-based workload processing
  • Use dynamic scheduling concepts and terminology
  • Configure and launch a job on a pool of workstations
  • Produce reports using the Tivoli Workload Scheduler command line and the Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console
  • Use the command-line composer and conman commands
