- define WLM service policies, service classes and classification rules
- describe the mechanisms for managing and balancing any workload in a WLMPlex
- explain the implications of using Workload Managed Batch and Resource Affinity Scheduling
- describe the changes required to migrate to a Workload Manager Goal mode environment
- carry out a migration to Goal mode and maintain the environment thereafter.
