Book Description



Book Info
Provides the only complete guide to using Tivoli's solution to maximize the availability, performance and manageability of any PeopleSoft system. Softcover. CD-ROM included.

From the Inside Flap

This book is intended for large corporations that have complex PeopleSoft environments and are looking for a comprehensive enterprise management solution. A PeopleSoft system cannot be managed in isolation; it is part of a business system. Its health is dependent on the health of other components in the system. For instance, managing the Application Server, the Database Server, the Process Scheduler Server, and the network is the only way to guarantee end-user satisfaction. Simplistic monitoring and system-level load analysis cannot guarantee availability. You need advanced tools, such as the Tivoli Enterprise suite of products, to help you spot the problem by analyzing the data you collect about PeopleSoft. Moreover, the Tivoli Enterprise Solutions provide a consistent management interface to different operating systems and services. Tivoli Enterprise allows you to manage users, systems, databases, networks, and applications from one interface and provides a streamlined way of automating and delegating routine time-consuming tasks. Because Tivoli Enterprise is a global enterprise management solution, you will not need to integrate disparate point products; so, you will provide better service and support while reducing or maintaining operational costs at their current levels or ratios.

If you are an IS manager, a system administrator, a pre-sales technical specialist, or anyone who wonders how the Tivoli Solutions can help manage PeopleSoft systems or even BEA TUXEDO systems, read this book to quickly get an understanding of their concepts, functions, and features.

This book is divided into three parts:

Part 1, "PeopleSoft, BEA TUXEDO, and Tivoli overviews" on page 1, contains three introductory chapters on PeopleSoft, BEA TUXEDO, and Tivoli Enterprise Software. The PeopleSoft and BEA TUXEDO overviews will give a high-level understanding of each solution; so, you can easily follow the functions and features available in the Tivoli Managers for PeopleSoft and BEA TUXEDO even if you are not an expert in both domains. The Tivoli Solutions overview helps readers select the Tivoli component necessary for a specific peopleSoft environment.

Part 2, "Tivoli Manager for BEA TUXEDO" on page 59, describes what the Tivoli Manager for BEA TUXEDO is and how it can be used to manage not only a PeopleSoft environment but also a Tuxedo environment by itself. This part covers three main subjects:

Installation and configuration of the Tivoli Manager for BEA TUXEDO in a Tivoli environment

How the Tivoli Manager for BEA TUXEDO helps perform streamlining operations on Tuxedo resources

How the Tivoli Manager for BEA TUXEDO helps keep Tuxedo systems available

Part 3, "Managing PeopleSoft" on page 289, describes the major Tivoli products that may be used to manage a PeopleSoft environment and explains in detail:

The installation and configuration of the Tivoli Manager for PeopleSoft.

The installation and configuration of the Tivoli Manager for Oracle. Although Oracle is not the only database supported by Tivoli, it is the one we chose to explain in detail in this book.

How the Tivoli Managers for PeopleSoft, BEA TUXEDO, and Oracle help perform streamlining operations on PeopleSoft systems.

How the Tivoli Managers for PeopleSoft, BEA TUXEDO, and Oracle help keep PeopleSoft systems available.

How Tivoli Workload Scheduler integrates with PeopleSoft to manage the batch jobs in an enterprise perspective.

How Tivoli Application Performance Management helps keep PeopleSoft Systems running at performance levels.
