Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console (TDWC) Introductory

Information for getting started on the TDWC

The Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console interface consists of the following sections:

Portfolio
It is located on the left, has a tree structure and contains all the entries to launch Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console functions. Use the portfolio to navigate to the panels. Portlet area
It is your working area. It displays the panels corresponding to your selection in the portfolio. From each panel you can access the online help by clicking on the ? symbol at the top right corner of the portlet. Task bar
It contains a tab to open each active function you called from the portfolio. Each time you click an entry of the portfolio, the corresponding panel is opened in the portlet area. When you open a new panel, the preceding ones are minimized to tabs on the task bar and you can switch between the panels by clicking on these tabs. The browser task bar contains up to five open tabs. If you open more than five tabs, a new browser window opens and you can move from one page to another by opening the Select Action menu.
