I haven't followed this thread, but one option to check for an active service is simply to use the DB2 services SQL to do a NETSTAT port check via SQL:

Ex SQL to check for port 80:

This is packaged in a CL command called QSHPORTCHK as part of my QShell on i Tools (QSHONI)

And here's a sample where I'm using QSHPORTCHK to check for a Postgres Server and Gitbucket running on an IBMi system.

If port check fails, you could then run whatever commands you need. And if they are QSH/PASE commands, you can use the QSHEXEC or QSHBASH commands to fire them up from the green screen or job scheduler.

Also with this example that was given in a prior post:
QSH CMD('/QIBM/ProdData/OS/WebServices/bin/listWebServicesServers.sh')

Can instead be run like this:
QSHONI/QSHEXEC CMDLINE('/QIBM/ProdData/OS/WebServices/bin/listWebServicesServers.sh')

When the command completes, simply read outfile QTEMP/STDOUTQSH to process the results from CL or RPG.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Bryan,

I ran the QSH

and the result

WSERVICE01 (Running)

Press ENTER to end terminal session.

How do I receive this result so I can interrogate and take an action
based on the result ?
