Slightly Skeptical View on Tivoli Redbooks

News Recommended Links Redbooks Catalog in Alphabetical Order Redpapers, Draft and Technotes

There are just too many Tivoli-related Redbooks. Most are outdate. Very few are good.

This page is a modest attempt to extract some useful information from this monstrous number: most Redbooks are only marginally useful and full of IBM-speak, when nothing can be explained without introducing several definitions and providing a couple of useless tables.  Here are links to some Tivoli Redbooks in alphabetical order (borrowed from IBM site in early 2005, not up-to-date):

[Mar 5, 2009] IBM Redbooks Implementing a Tivoli Solution for Central Management of Large Distributed Environments

Deploying and managing distributed systems in hundreds or thousands of branch banks and retail stores, called outlets, requires careful planning of the automation to cope with the sheer numbers of systems involved.

This IBM Redbook demonstrates how to architect, establish, and configure a Tivoli systems management environment that supports the central management of thousands of outlet systems based on the open United Linux platform.

The main focus of this book is to provide step-by-step instructions, sample scripts, and code to install and deploy the core Tivoli products that enable the organization to:

- Deploy and maintain distributed application solutions
- Monitor availability and performance of remote systems, middleware components and applications
- Perform diagnostics and troubleshooting of remote system and application components to resolve availability
or performance issues
- Gather metrics to document performance levels

This book is intended for IT professionals with a basic understanding of the core Tivoli product set and who are responsible for deploying a Tivoli management infrastructure.

IBM Redbooks Deployment Guide Series IBM Tivoli Configuration Manager

15 September 2005

IBM Tivoli Configuration Manager controls software distribution and asset management inventory in a multiplatform environment. It is designed for configuration, distribution, change, version, and asset management in a distributed computing environment. Working on top of IBM Tivoli Management Framework, IBM Tivoli Configuration Manager provides an integrated solution for managing complex, distributed enterprise environments.

This IBM Redbook introduces the IBM Tivoli Configuration Manager logical and physical components and covers detailed planning and implementation steps to deploy IBM Tivoli Configuration Manager in small-to-medium and large-sized environments, including IBM AIX 5L, Microsoft Windows, Linux, and IBM OS/400 systems.

In addition, we talk about best practices, advanced customization, and tuning topics for IBM Tivoli Configuration Manager.

This IBM Redbook will be useful for IT specialists responsible for implementing IBM Tivoli Configuration Manager V4.2.x in customer environments.

[Feb 24, 2006] IBM Redbooks Getting Started with IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.1 on Distributed Environments

The IBM Tivoli Monitoring Version 6.1 solution is the next generation of the IBM Tivoli family of products that help monitor and manage critical hardware and software in distributed environments. IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.1 has emerged from the best of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Version 5 and OMEGAMON technologies. Integration of these products creates a unique and comprehensive solution to monitor and manage both z/OS and distributed environments.

IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.1 is easily customizable and provides real-time and historical data that enables you to quickly diagnose and solve issues with the new GUI via the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Portal component. This common, flexible, and easy-to-use browser interface helps users to quickly isolate and resolve potential performance problems.

This IBM Redbook covers planning, architecture, tuning, implementation, and troubleshooting of IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.1. In addition, we offer scenarios for migration from Distributed Monitoring 3.7, and IBM Tivoli Monitoring 5.X coexistence with IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.1.

This book is targeted for IT specialists who will be working on new IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.1 installations on distributed environments or implementing migration from Distributed Monitoring 3.7 or IBM Tivoli Monitoring 5.X coexistence.

TMF Maintenance and Troubleshooting Guide / Troubleshooting endpoints

When determining problems with the endpoint, it is important to remember that the endpoint operates in conjunction with two other components of the Tivoli environment: the endpoint manager and the gateway. Therefore, you need to assess the state of several Tivoli Management Framework components when troubleshooting endpoints: the endpoint itself, the gateways it can connect to, and the endpoint manager that is on the Tivoli server.

This chapter contains the following sections:
