This course teaches you how to use the IBM Agent Builder software to create, modify, debug, and package agents for use with IBM Tivoli Monitoring and IBM Performance Management products. You create agents that monitor many different data sources. You learn to mix, match, and manipulate monitored data to create custom data points to monitor. You also learn to add custom components specific to the different IBM monitoring environments.
IBM Agent Builder can create custom agents for both the IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.x and IBM Performance Management 8.x on-premises and SaaS environments. This course is applicable to students from either environment and a single class might have students from each environment. For many reasons, most of the exercises in the course continue to deploy most agents within an IBM Tivoli Monitoring environment with only a small subset of exercises deploying in an IBM Performance Management environment. Most tasks for creating custom agents with Agent Builder are common to either environment. Students working in an IBM Performance Management 8.1.1 environment can feel confident that after attending this class they can be successful deploying Agent Builder agents in their environment.
