17:01 How to customize resource monitor tasks with variable substitution?
20:46 What user ID authorization is required for managed file transfer clients and resource monitors?

25:30 Open lines for live question and answer period
25:36 Sometimes when shutting down an active agent, MQ Explorer shows as many as 9 transfers in progress, but yet all transfers seem to have completed. What could cause this behavior?
28:52 How do you monitor a queue that is outside the FTE topology?
32:09 In MQ Explorer plugin there is a stop/started status for a monitor. In the document there is nothing about stopping a monitor, is this something that will come at a later time?
