This IBM Self-Paced Virtual Class (SPVC) includes:
- PDF course guide available to attendee during and after course
- Lab environment where students can work through demonstrations and exercises at their own pace

This self-paced course with hands-on exercises provides technical professionals with the skills that are needed to administer IBM MQ queue managers on distributed operating systems and in the Cloud. In addition to the instructor-led lectures, you participate in hands-on lab exercises that are designed to reinforce lecture content. The lab exercises use IBM MQ V9.0, giving you practical experience with tasks such as handling queue recovery, implementing security, and problem determination.

Note: This course does not cover any of the features of MQ for z/OS or MQ for IBM i.

Skills Gained

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the IBM MQ deployment options
  • Plan for the implementation of IBM MQ on-premises or in the Cloud
  • Use IBM MQ commands and the IBM MQ Explorer to create and manage queue managers, queues, and channels
  • Use the IBM MQ sample programs and utilities to test the IBM MQ network
  • Enable a queue manager to exchange messages with another queue manager
  • Configure client connections to a queue manager
  • Use a trigger message and a trigger monitor to start an application to process messages
  • Implement basic queue manager restart and recovery procedures
  • Use IBM MQ troubleshooting tools to identify the cause of a problem in the IBM MQ network
  • Plan for and implement basic IBM MQ security features
  • Use accounting and statistics messages to monitor the activities of an IBM MQ system
  • Define and administer a simple queue manager cluster
