Pathway System Management I for HPE NonStop Systems - U4194S


This course will let you get the practical, hands-on experience you need to configure, modify, monitor, and maintain a Pathway system. By the end of the course, you will understand the major Pathway system management functions and have implemented them on an actual system.

After you successfully complete this course, expect to be able to:
  • Describe the components of the Pathway environment and how they relate to an online transaction processing application
  • Configure, start, stop, and monitor the components of a Pathway system
  • Use the utilities necessary in Pathway system management
  • Add terminal control processes (TCPs), terminals, and server classes to a running Pathway system
  • Diagnose and fix problems that occur during the running of a Pathway system
  • Describe the Pathway/iTS subsystem and interaction with iTP WebServer
  • Configure and understand server to server communication using Pathsen
