Question Websphere MQ


First post here, so excuse me if I've posted this in the wrong section

So..

Where I work, we've got this RHE4 box.
Running a system that track card transactions.
It does that by using IBM Websphere MQ, and recieves it's data from a z/OS machine at another location.

Thing is, we're downsizing .. and that means I'm now in charge of this box.

I've never even heard of MQ or Websphere before this.
And ofc, they won't pay for courses etc.

It's up and running now, works just fine it seems. But I know it will crash .. eventually .. and or more z/OS machines will be put into the loop.

Also .. the documentation is .. less than optimal.

I know my way around linux, but this is greek to me.

Any tips on how I'd go about acquiring me these skills?
Surely there must be books, sites etc? (My google-fú isn't as strong as it used to be)

The books aren't very useful or seem to be outdated. The IBM Redbooks are more up to date when it comes to learning and reading about Websphere. The next best thing to do is poke around the box without doing anything to see how it's setup, look at configurations. If nothing needs to change, if it crashes, you could probably get away with just restarting Websphere each time.

But if I was in your shoes, I'd be arguing the case to get you materials and the knowledge you need to support this machine. Tell them without such things, if something catastrophic occurred and this machine is needed for your business, then extended downtime and possibly paying for support by IBM or another Websphere consultant could lead to more costs than you getting trained for paying for the training materials to get you up to speed.
