Preface
This IBM® Redbook is a study guide for IBM Tivoli® Monitoring Version 6.1 and
is aimed at the people who want to get an IBM Professional Certification for this
product.
The IBM Tivoli Monitoring Version 6.1 Certification, offered through the
Professional Certification Program from IBM, is designed to validate the skills
required of technical professionals who work in the implementation of the IBM
Tivoli Monitoring Version 6.1 product.
This book provides a combination of theory and practical experience needed for
a general understanding of the subject matter. It also provides sample questions
that will help in the evaluation of personal progress and provide familiarity with
the types of questions that will be encountered in the exam.
This publication does not replace practical experience, nor is it designed to be a
stand-alone guide for any subject. Instead, it is an effective tool that, when
combined with education activities and experience, can be a very useful
preparation guide for the exam.
For your convenience, we structure the chapters based on the sections of the
IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.1 Implementation Certification test, such as Planning,
Prerequisites, Installation, and so on, so studying each chapter will help you
prepare for one section of the exam.
