For users of IBM's MQSeries® messaging software, Tivoli® Manager for MQSeries for OS/390®, when used with Tivoli Manager for MQSeries (5698-MQS), provides a complete systems management solution for the widely distributed, multiplatform environments in which MQSeries can operate.
Utilizing Tivoli's policy-based management approach, Tivoli Manager for MQSeries is the only MQSeries management solution that manages MQSeries as a component of overall business systems linking the management to databases, applications and other middleware products that span host and distributed systems. This is also the only MQSeries management product that manages every application, from low-level network and operating system resources to the powerful applications that use MQSeries for messaging. Key features of V2R3 are:
Planned Availability Date
Tivoli Manager for MQSeries for OS/390 enables the management of the MQSeries messaging and queuing middleware in the S/390® environment. It facilitates the Tivoli Manager for MQSeries (5698-MQS) centralized management tool for MQSeries, allowing it to manage not only across the distributed environment, but into the host environment as well.
Tivoli Manager for MQSeries is a centralized management tool for IBM's MQSeries messaging and queuing middleware product. It provides a high degree of management control of MQSeries while reducing the complexity and cost of deploying and administering MQSeries networks. The manager is tightly incorporated with Tivoli the Tivoli management platform and integrates MQSeries management with that of the underlying operating systems, databases, and networks, thus providing a comprehensive approach to applications management. Tivoli Manager for MQSeries for OS/390 and Tivoli Manager for MQSeries spans the OS/390 and the distributed environment.
The management console is provided in the Tivoli Manager for MQSeries product and is supported only in the distributed environment. Tivoli Manager for MQSeries for OS/390 brings three primary areas of MQSeries management to the S/390 environment:
The manager supports the definition and configuration of queue managers, queues, channels, and other MQSeries objects from a central GUI console and populates the Tivoli desktop with icons representing them. Different queue and channel configurations for different policy regions are easily created and distributed to the MQSeries network. In addition, the manager provides a "discovery" feature that automatically detects queue managers and their associated objects.
Tivoli Manager for MQSeries provides both in-band and out-of-band event monitoring to ensure the availability of MQSeries. In-band monitoring is achieved by monitoring MQSeries queue manager, channel, and performance events. These events are filtered according to users' preferences and the more critical events are forwarded to the central console for display and action. Out-of-band monitoring, which does not rely on MQSeries itself, is achieved by verifying the network path between the central console and all MQSeries servers, verifying the up-status of key MQSeries processes, and verifying the health of the Tivoli component processes. The queue managers' operational condition is displayed live at the management console.
Operation Management and Automation
All MQSeries administrative and operational commands are supported from the central console. In addition, the administrator is free to define new tasks and assign the appropriate level of security. Commands and tasks may be manually executed on multiple remote nodes via a single-action keystroke on the management console. Tasks can also be automated to run on a scheduled basis or as the result of an event or the correlation of several events. The built-in event correlation engine permits events from different sources, such as network routers and MQSeries channels, to be evaluated in context with one another for appropriate action. Rules can be defined to process and correlate these events and to take automated action based on predefined event conditions. A set of default rules provides a clear, accurate view of the MQSeries environment, consolidating events that span geographic distances and heterogeneous systems.
MQSeries management can be divided into domains based on business functions or geographic regions. This allows different management policies to be defined for MQSeries subregions. It also leverages the productivity of senior administrators by allowing less critical or routine operational tasks to be performed by more junior administrators.
This product is Year 2000 ready. When used in accordance with its associated documentation, it is capable of correctly processing, providing, and/or receiving date data within and between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, provided that all products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) used with the product properly exchange accurate date data with it.
Tivoli Manager for MQSeries for OS/390 provides the support to enable Tivoli Manager for MQSeries to manage MQSeries in the OS/390 environment. It requires Tivoli Manager for MQSeries (5698-MQS) or (5697-MQS). Tivoli Manager for MQSeries provides the management console and the management functions to enable centralized management spanning the distributed and the host environment.
