About IBM C2180-401 dump

The test consists of nine sections containing a total of approximately 65 multiple-choice questions. The percentages after each section title reflect the approximate distribution of the total question set across the sections.
Section 1 - Architecture (11%)

  • Identify the components and services in a WebSphere Application Server configuration and describe how they are related or interact.
  • Design various WebSphere Application Server topologies, for example, flexible management, intelligent management, mixed platform topology, network deployment cells, Liberty collectives, and ODR.
  • Analyze appropriate design considerations when architecting topologies to achieve security, scalability, performance and fault tolerance.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how requests traverse various WebSphere Application Server topologies.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the administration activities for a network deployment cell including the flexible management components.
  • Identify and describe the components of the WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile.

Section 2 - Product Installation, Configuration and Maintenance (15%)

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the IBM Installation Manager and IBM Packaging Utility and its role in installing, configuring, and maintaining WebSphere application servers and components both locally and remotely.
  • Perform a silent installation process for WebSphere Application Server and fix pack installations.
  • Perform pre and post installation verification.
  • Troubleshoot installation problems.
  • Create and manage Full and Liberty profiles.
  • Manage nodes in a WebSphere topology, for example, managed, unmanaged nodes, flexible management and network deployment cell.
  • Backup and restore configuration including the use of checkpoints.

Section 3 - Application Management (Assembly, Deployment and Configuration) (9%)

  • Explain the structure of enterprise applications, web applications, and business level applications.
  • Deploy applications to a WebSphere Application Server environment.
  • Configure resources, for example, data sources, JNDI, class paths, J2C providers, as required by an application.
  • Use the IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software or the IBM WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse to examine and manipulate applications.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the administrative tasks required to take an application deployed to the Liberty profile and deploy it in a WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment environment.

Section 4 - Administrative Tools (14%)

  • Illustrate the usage of the Integrated Solutions Console (ISC) and its various tools (e.g., command assistance, runtime messages).
  • Use the standard set of command line administrative tools such as wsadmin, profile management and plug-in generation.
  • Use the capabilities of the Job Manager tooling including the submission of Liberty profile jobs.
  • Use scripting to perform administrative tasks, for example, scripting libraries, ws_ant, wsadmin
  • Write, test, and debug scripts by using the IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software or the IBM WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse.
  • Configure or modify a WebSphere Application Server environment by using properties files and/or the monitored directory feature.

Section 5 - Security configuration and Maintenance (14%)

  • Configure user repositories.
  • Configure SSL for clients and servers, for example, create certificates, populate trust stores and modify certificate expiration.
  • Discuss the implications of resource security settings.
  • Implement multiple security domains.
  • Apply administrative and application security roles.
  • Configure different authentication and authorization mechanisms, including SSO.
  • Configure Java Enterprise, Liberty, Web and Web Services Security.

Section 6 - Clustering and Workload Management (9%)

  • Configure clusters in workload management topologies.
  • Configure and manage the HTTP server and the web server plug-in.
  • Configure distributed session management for high availability and failover scenarios, including the WebSphere eXtreme Scale option.
  • Configure messaging engine policies for clustered service integration bus (SIBus) members.
  • Configure high availability using core groups.
  • Utilize the capabilities of the Liberty collectives.

Section 7 - Intelligent Management and Resiliency (6%)

  • Use the dynamic cluster elasticity feature.
  • Create and configure On Demand Routers (ODR) and the ODR plug-in and associated service policies to enable the dynamic operations.
  • Use health policies and actions to monitor and react to changing performance in the environment.
  • Configure and maintain application editions.

Section 8 - Performance Monitoring and Tuning (11%)

  • Use the Tivoli Performance Viewer (TPV) to monitor the WebSphere Application Server runtime.
  • Use the Tivoli Performance Viewer (TPV) Advisor and the Diagnostic Advisor to obtain advice on performance issues.
  • Tune parameters, for example JVM settings, connection pools, thread pools, that affect WebSphere Application Server performance.
  • Use the Performance Monitoring Infrastructure (PMI) metrics and poll MBeans for performance data.
  • Configure and monitor the WebSphere Application Server caching mechanisms.
  • Configure multi-cell performance management.

Section 9 - Problem Determination (11%)

  • Enable High Performance Extensible Logging (HPEL) and view HPEL data.
  • Enable Cross Component Trace (XCT) and view trace data in XCT Log Viewer.
  • Use tools to trigger and analyze heap dumps, javacore dumps, system core dumps and verbose Garbage Collection (GC).
  • Configure diagnostic tracing.
  • Use "mustgather" documentation and/or the IBM Support Assistant to collect and analyze diagnostic data or submit data to IBM Support.
  • Configure, review and analyze log files for example, First Failure Data Capture (FFDC), system logs, native logs.
