IBM Navigator for i (the web console) added support for message monitors and system monitors in the 7.2 release. For those of you familiar with Management Central monitors, the Navigator monitors are quite similar, however the underlying implementation is different.

The blog entry “QTEMP – Temporary or Permanent Storage,” was written before IBM i 7.2 was available, but it’s still applicable.

Stacy Benfield wrote this week’s blog about her participation in the Women in IT conference in 2016. This is timely with WMCPA holding their fourth Women in IT conference on March 24, 2017. This is a free event, open to everyone (no, you do not have to be a woman to attend). I participated in 2014 and it was an excellent professional development conference.

Once again it is announcement time, with IBM i 7.3 Technology Refresh 2 and IBM i 7.2 Technology Refresh 6 being announced. As is somewhat typical for these Technology Refresh announcements, the content for both releases is quite similar. Steve Will’s blog “Announcing IBM i 7.3 TR2 & 7.2 TR6”
reviews the announcement overall. I want to focus on a few enhancements that will make an IBM i administrator’s life a little easier.
