support for monitoring AS400/ iSeries servers , a couple of years back. And now,
we are happy to announce, that our AS400 monitor is about to get a makeover!!
We’re already working on a few enhancements to the AS400 monitor. Here is a sneak peak into what you can expect from the new AS400 monitor:
Specific Job(s) Monitoring
: This feature intends to allow the user to monitor
specific job(s) which are more important to them, by choosing the option “Add Job(s) to Monitor”
. The user can configure the alerts based on the status of job, number of threads used by job, etc.
Job log can also be
viewed for any job.
Monitoring of messages that need reply
: Do you feel you are bombarded with a lot of messages in your AS400 server? You don’t have to be bothered anymore. We will now leave it to your choice.
You can stop data collection by disabling
messages. However, you can opt for
“Messages that need reply” which will be displayed by default.
User can also configure alarms depending upon the content of the message.
Specific Subsystem(s) Monitoring
: You can configure the alerts based on the status, number of jobs running in the subsystem. This feature will also allow the users to monitor specific subsystem(s) which are more important to them, by choosing the option “Add Subsystem(s) to Monitor”.
We have tried to customize the various available options for you to have better control over the monitoring, specifically data collection.
The user can disable/enable data collection for particular module like
job/messages/spool as per your requirement. Nevertheless any parameter (jobs, spool, subsystem,etc)
which are in critical or warning status across all the AS400 monitors will be monitored and displayed by default in the web client.
If you have been using ManageEngine Applications Manager to monitor your AS400 servers, we invite you to share your thoughts on the above mentioned enhancements. Also feel free to suggest any other enhancements which you feel is necessary, by taking part in this
