IBM Workload Scheduler 9.4 Operations and Scheduling (TX319G)

IBM Workload Scheduler 9.4 Operations and Scheduling (TX319G)

Overview

Duration: 3 days

This course introduces IBM Workload Scheduler features, environment, and terminology. You learn about distributed environments and how to use both the Dynamic Workload Console and command-line interfaces with Workload Scheduler. You monitor production workflow and create a production day plan. Production workflow consists of job and job stream instances, designed with plan objects. You manage changes to objects, the plan, jobs, events, and job streams. You optimize production workflow and troubleshoot plan problems. You also learn to use Workload Scheduler with classic batch scheduling and dynamic and event-driven workloads.
