IBM Course Code: DW731G
This course enables you to acquire the skills necessary to administer an InfoSphere Streams system. The course covers creating Streams instances, creating a Streams recovery database, viewing the state of Streams instance services, moving an application service to another host, stopping and starting processing elements, view the jobs and processing elements that are running. In addition it covers defining host tags, adding a host to a Streams instance, setting the access control list for instance objects to give permission to users to work with those objects, and submitting and canceling Streams job.
There are five exercises that reenforces the presentation material. You will work with two host systems so that you can get a better idea of administering a multi-host Streams environment.
