Tivoli OPC and Tivoli Workload Scheduler (formerly Maestro) are the two scheduling engines that make up Tivoli's integrated solution for enterprise scheduling. Tivoli OPC has a firm share of the mainframe scheduling market, and TWS is the scheduler of choice for distributed environments. Tivoli has now made available the Job Scheduling Console, addressing the end-to-end scheduling requirements that are central to multi-platform environments. Tivoli OPC 2.3 and Tivoli Workload Scheduler 7.0 can now be managed from this common graphical user interface, creating a best-of-breed cross-platform scheduling solution.
This IBM Redbook provides step-by-step setup instructions, as well as detailed troubleshooting guidelines for implementing OPC, TWS, and the Job Scheduling Console. It covers the most important features of both engines and provides illustrative practical usage scenarios, including exploitation of the new common GUI, installation and usage of Extended Agents, and advice on implementing high-availability environments. Users migrating from previous releases will find the migration checklists and the terminology translation tables extremely valuable.
This book is based on OPC 2.3 and TWS 7.0 and will be usefulto those customers who are working to integrate OPC and TWS, as well as those working with OPC or TWS alone.
