Course Description

This course replaces TW070. Learn IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Suite (TWS) Version 8.3 features, environment, and new terminology. Learn how to plan, implement, monitor and efficiently manage a TWS Production Day Plan. Study the new features of TWS 8.3 and the Job Scheduling Console 8.3. Learn the details of building a plan by defining and documenting the plan objects and their properties. Design job and job stream instances using recovery options, external dependencies, prompts, and other plan objects. Develop skills to confidently integrate desired changes appropriate to the plan, jobs, or job streams. Develop valuable skills to optimize plans and methods of troubleshooting plan problems.

This training is done in a classroom environment with interspersed, hands-on laboratory opportunities to practice concepts by performing student exercises using real-world scenarios.

Target Audience

This is an introductory course for:

  • New TWS users seeking proficiency in the TWS 8.3 environment on UNIX and Windows platforms
  • Existing schedulers, operators, and their supervisors/managers at sites converting from previous versions of TWS (Maestro) to TWS Suite 8.3
  • Individuals who need detailed guidance on how to create plans, monitor workload status, adjust workload parameters, or submit job streams or jobs to execute under the control of TWS Suite 8.3
