In the Wheelhouse: Evaluating Your Social Business Climate

Transformation into social, collaborative businesses requires us to first look at our own organizations, gauge our ability to trust and share, and then plan accordingly.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

I was presenting a number of sessions in Orlando at IBM Enterprise 2013 during the week of October 21, one of which was about IBM Connections on IBM i. The presentation was geared toward showing people the benefits of an IBM Connections environment on IBM i and Power Systems over and above x86-64, explaining the installation from start to finish (including Tivoli Directory Integrator, Installation Manager, WebSphere Application Server 8), clearing up issues in the documentation, and discussing configuration tips and things to watch out for.

Partner TechTip: Out of the Frying Pan, into the Archive Files

Don't swap an archiving issue for a storage issue. QMessage Monitor notifies you if files grow too large—and can take action before storage becomes a problem.

kurt thomas.Written by Kurt Thomas

A proactive approach to system monitoring offers many benefits, but there still are tasks that, despite your best efforts in making proactive choices, ultimately swap one problem for another. A good example is message archiving. Archiving messages from the message log in QMessage Monitor (QMM) using the MMARCLOG command is a great way to maintain your message history, allowing you to export parts of the log into separate files. However, if ignored, the number of these files on IBM i can grow substantially, possibly causing an issue with the space they use.
