Encrypting WebSphere Application Server system passwords
Tue, Dec 6th 2016 7:51a   Dave Hay
This from one of my IBM colleagues, Martin Lansche: -...It seems that every day we are bombarded with stories in the technical and mainstream press of attacks of computer systems where passwords are stolen, after which these passwords are then available to attackers. The press frequently points out that one reason that this password data was retrievable is because "it was not encrypted." In this situation, it's important to recognize that the passwords in question are user passwords, those us

This is my current "think" as I'm digging into some BPM performance challenges: -Troubleshooting Web Services Performance Problems In IBM WebSphere Application Server With Web Services Performance (WSPerf) TraceThe WSPerf trace is a feature of IBM WebSphere Application Server. The WSPerf is a troubleshooting aid to assist analysts to resolve web services problems, especially performance problems. WSPerf trace can be used to analyze the speed of web services message traffic in IBM's WebSphere

Apple Calendar - Dealing with Spam invitations
Fri, Nov 25th 2016 2:56p   Dave Hay
So I keep receiving spam calendar invitations to my Apple Calendar, on iOS and macOS, which is a nuisance.Thankfully, I found this: -Log in to iCloud on the web, open your calendar, and go to ⚙ > Preferences. Under Advanced, you'll find an option to receive calendar invitations by email instead of straight into your calendar.Q: How do I block spam calendar invitation emails?Ok so this works. Create a new calendar (Calendar/File/New Calendar) then open the bogus invite, you should see a dro

This is in the context of managing profiles in WebSphere Application Server, using the manageprofiles.sh command.A friend asked me how he could set the name of a specific server instance ( think JVM ) when he was creating a profile …This is what I told him: -/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/manageprofiles.sh -profilePath /opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/diesel -enableService false -nodeName chugger -serverName hst125 -profileName diesel -create -cellName trainsRcool -enableAdminSecurity f

Acting in my role as my family's IT Crowd representative, I ran an errand of mercy yesterday to help recover a Windows 7 PC that was failing to properly run up.It was booting OK, but was tremendously slow, and it's owner was unable to access the internet ( aka Internet Explorer ).The PC hadn't been booted up for a month or so, and there were a series of overlapping issues, one of which was that the Norton Anti-Virus tool was (a) out-of-date and (b) expired.In parallel, Windows Update hadn't

Cool your hot entities in IBM ODM Decision Server Insights
Tue, Nov 15th 2016 4:23p   Dave Hay
This was authored by two of my IBM colleagues, Nigel Crowther and Jonathon CarrCool your hot entities in IBM ODM Decision Server InsightsIn any high-volume event processing system, such as Decision Server Insights in IBM® Operational Decision Manager (ODM), an entity instance referenced by thousands of events is a "hot entity." Hot entities slow down processing, becoming the sole consumer of events within the system. This situation effectively reduces an entire multi-processing grid to wait f
