psadmin.conf: Monitoring PeopleSoft Integrations

The first video from psadmin.conf 2018 is available! Brad Carlson discusses the need for monitoring Integration Broker messages. The PeopleSoft Integration Broker Monitor Service was developed by the University of Minnesota to provide robust monitoring of asynchronous messaging into and out of the PeopleSoft Enterprise. Through simple XML configuration, the monitor will check at defined intervals for pre-defined scenarios, when if found, will trigger configured actions such as notification.

We released the videos as a free course so you can find the videos in one place. Head over to the psadmin.io courses page and sign up. If you already signed up for the course, you can log in and the new video will be available.
