Hidden Gems in IBM’s QMGTOOLS
If you have ever had a complex support case with the IBM i support team in Rochester, they may have instructed you to install the “QMGTOOLS” system utility to gather and also possibly send critical problem-solving information to them to help resolve your system’s issue.
The “MG” in “QMGTOOLS” stands for “Must Gather” as the genesis of the tool was a requirement to package a bunch of commands that collect information that “must be gathered” to resolve certain kinds of support issues.
For many of you, working with QMGTOOLS to provide info to IBM on a technical problem may have been the first time that you’ve ever dealt with the QMGTOOLS utility package, and for many of you who have only worked with QMGTOOLS at IBM’s direction on a support case, or, never even heard of it.
Join Marc as he covers hidden gems in QMGTOOLS.
