Manta announces the availability of a new course, Work Management Using Navigator for i. This course is the third in a series of courses that will serve as an optional replacement for the existing Manta Fundamentals of IBM i Operations series. The new course shows how to use Navigator for i to perform common operator tasks involving IBM i work management.

The course begins by showing how to control job and output queues. You will see how to hold, release, and clear these queues and display their properties. Controlling subsystems is covered next, including how to start and stop a subsystem, display its properties, and view the job queues and memory pools it is assigned.

The course then describes Navigator for i facilities for monitoring your system. First you will see how to display execution statistics for a job, including its CPU usage. Then you will see how to display detailed system status information, including the web console dashboard.

Previous courses of this series were introduced earlier this year. They include Using Navigator for i and Basic Operations Using Navigator for i. The next course in the series (to be released in December) will cover techniques for managing both physical and virtual tape devices.

As with all Manta series, a Student Reference Guide is available as a free download for students to use as a reference when they complete the course and are back on the job. A comprehensive Competency Exam is also provided to help students confirm their mastery of the course objectives.

Customer who have an existing license to any of the following combo packs will discover that Work Management Using IBM Navigator for i has already been added to their menu options:

  • The IBM i Training Library
  • Operations Combination Pack
  • System Administration and Operations Super Combination Pack

If you need IBM i training, Manta is the first vendor most often recommended. Because you want quality training for less. Manta's consistently low price has always been a major attraction. For example, a typical company can train its entire IT organization for less than the price of sending a couple of operators to a class. (See "Total Cost Comparision" for a detailed analysis.)
