Systems Management with JBoss Operations Network

JON (JBoss Operations Network) is an enterprise management solution for JBoss servers and other middleware products. It is based on RHQ, which is the upstream open-source product that JON is built on. All the capabilities covered for JON are applicable to working with RHQ also.

The Systems Management with JBoss Operations Network training class provides an in-depth, hands-on introduction to JON, with a focus on using it to manage JBoss server installations/clusters (JBoss EAP 6, JBoss AS 7, and/or WildFly 8) as well as associated products such as Apache httpd/mod_cluster. The course starts with the basics, including the somewhat complex installation, and goes on to cover all the important capabilities of JON.

Goals
  1. Learn to understand the JON/RHQ architecture and capabilities.
  2. Learn to install and configure a JON installation.
  3. Learn to configure plugins, and set up agents.
  4. Learn to understand and work with inventory - import resources, browse and search, control their display.
  5. Learn to configure JBoss AS 7 / EAP 6 for management by JON/RHQ.
  6. Learn to use the monitoring capabilities.
  7. Learn to create and configure alerts and notifications.
  8. Learn to define bundles (e.g. a JBoss server with your applications), and provision them to a destination (e.g. a target host).
  9. Learn to monitor running applications.
  10. Understand and use the capabilities for managing configuration "drift".

Great alternative to learning as opposed to a live in person course. Great instructor that was highly knowledgeable on the subject area.
Rhonda Rawles

As a fairly new PowerPoint user with very little previous knowledge other than on the job training, this course was very informative. The content and presentation were easy to follow. The instructor was very knowledgeable and thorough. I look forward to attending the Advanced course as well!
