Gain knowledge on InfoSphere Replication Server and how it is used to perform both queue-based homogeneous data replication and heterogeneous data replication. Learn to distinguish the differences in functionality of the queue architecture's highly parallel, transaction-based, asynchronous message-based transmission capability with the SQL based architecture.
Use the Replication Center Graphical User Interface (GUI) to perform the Q Replication operations necessary to define, manage, and maintain queue-based data replication functions for DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. Additionally, incorporate the use of the ASNCLP command line interpreter for definitional tasks, along with utilities such as ASNTDIFF and ASNTREP and the Q Replication Dashboard, in your replication environment.
Discover how InfoSphere Replication Server can be engaged to publish transactions in either an Extensible Markup Language (XML) format or in a character delimited format. Become versed in the use of the WebSphere MQ queues required by InfoSphere Replication Server.
Included are a number of intensive hands-on machine exercises demonstrating InfoSphere Replication Server's capabilities in unidirectional replication as well as multidirectional replication. Linux will serve as the control point for administering the InfoSphere Replication Server for Linux, UNIX, Windows, and z/OS.
The self-paced format gives you the opportunity to complete the course at your convenience, at any location, and at your own pace. The course is available 24 hours a day. Once you have accessed the course, instructor help is available via the course forum Monday through Friday; questions will be responded to within 24 hours.
Training Paths that reference this course are:
This is an intermediate course for system administrators, database administrators, replication administrators, data warehouse architects, programmers, users, IBM professionals, and other individuals desiring a highly parallel, transaction-based, asynchronous queue message-based transmission replication architecture. This includes all individuals who perform or support evaluation, implementation, and usage activities for data movement, data availability, and data replication.
Having a working knowledge of WebSphere MQ and an understanding of the basic operation and creation of queues and related queue managers will provide a good foundation for this course.
Skills or experience in the following specific areas enable you to more easily navigate the course material and facilitate in the execution of the lab exercises:
WebSphere MQ for the Q Replication Administrator
Overview of WebSphere Replication Server
Setting Up a Federated Database
Preparing the Replication Environment
Performing Unidirectional Replication
Operating Q Capture and Q Apply
Bidirectional and Peer-to-Peer Replication
Utilities and Replication Monitoring
How Does Q Replication Work?
Command Line Processor
Q Replication Processing
The minimum hardware and software required to launch the course are:
Network Speed Test
For example, a speed test against the server with a slow connection of 140 Kbps download and 28 Kbps upload took 14 minutes to load a 30min recording before the video began. Extrapolate from this result to estimate approximately how fast your network internet access would be.
High-speed broadband internet access is the recommended configuration for this course.
If you use a different character keyboard, you may experience errors when entering passwords. If possible, change your language/country settings for your keyboard to USA, which allows you to enter characters as in a QWERTY keyboard.
