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 Redbooks publication 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.
