RE: iSeries Message Monitoring, auto actions, and pager (email)notifications



fixed

This is exactly how we used MPLUS at my previous company. You can write
a program that MPLUS calls and passes all kinds of information that you
can use to make decisions about what to do with the message.

Have you thought about writing a program to replace the monitor action?
Your program can then send the message to whomever.

I currently use MPLUS for monitoring, for the most part all ok.
However, my manager no longer wants everyone to get all the alerts. (I
have one group, contains manager, admin, 2 operators, and 4 programmers,
total of 8) My thought is to still allow all messages to go to the
group, using the MPLUS monitor default pager.
For those messages that should NOT go to the entire group, I will either
send individual pages or create new groups as needed (Groups are
preferred, sending to individuals is frowned upon).

We run multiple 3rd party apps, manager would like only the messages for
that app to go to the programmers for that app.
The problem is you can't configure the same message monitor to go to
different pagers based on something??.
At this point I'm looking at userprofile to determine who should get the
message, but this may not work.

I wish could see the V7R2 monitoring capabilities, I'm wondering how
much could be done with V7R2 base that I'm currently using MPLUS for.
I'm also entertaining other solutions.

Any thoughts from the group?

Thank You
