RE: System i Message monitors



fixed

As mentioned by others, it's not that difficult to use QMHRCVM to wait on QSYSOPR and examine every message that comes in. Then the program doing so can examine the message id, severity, type, etc. and make decisions. That part is easy. The harder part is filtering so that whatever action is desired is taken for some but not for others. Since storage levels and such things as cache battery warnings come through the QSYSOPR message queue, notifications can be sent via SNDDST or other methods.

The QMHRCVM API is simple to work with. The only constraint is that if it's waiting on messages from QSYSOPR no other process can allocate that message queue. Normally this is not an issue.

As far as 3rd part software goes, eView is one I know has the capacity to monitor messages and many other system activities - but I don't personally know a lot about it and couldn't recommend it myself.

Hope this helps

Good afternoon,

We're interested in finding software that monitors messages on our System I partitions and notifies us in some way.

I've found SNDTWEET from Kisco and some software from NYCO in the UK.

Are there others? Does anyone know price ranges for any of these? Any recommendations or cautions?

Just looking right now.

Thanks for your help,

Thanks,

Dave B
