Question:

-How do you send data from CA SYSVIEW to CA-OPS/MVS when a threshold is triggered?   
 

 

Answer: 

-In CA SYSVIEW you can define thresholds to be triggered when a metric value exceeds a specified limit.
 CA SYSVIEW allows this information or event notification to be sent directly to CA-OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation. When a metric exceeds the specified threshold limit, one option is to have CA SYSVIEW issue a console message indicating the exceeded value. Using event notification instead can reduce the number of console messages and reduce system overhead associated with processing those messages. On each event, the interface triggers an )API rule and sends data to the rule. Each type of event has an associated set of variable names. The variables are read-only and are a data type of character.

 You can use the event notification process to send event notifications of MVS, CICS, Websphere MQ, IMS and TCP/IP exception data to CA-OPS/MVS.

  • To enable event notification for MVS, Websphere MQ, IMS and TCP/IP exception data, modify the CA SYSVIEW parmlib member SYSDATA, placing the following above the )EOF:
    Member:SYSVIEW.CNM4BPRM(SYSDATA)
    Configuration Option Value
    ------------------------------ ------
    OPSMVS-EVENT-NOTIFICATION Yes
  • To enable event notification of CICS Exception data, modify the CA SYSVIEW parmlib member CICSOPTS, placing the following above the )EOF:
    Member:SYSVIEW.CNM4BPRM(CICSOPTS)
    Configuration Option Value
    ------------------------------ ------
    OPSMVS-EVENT-NOTIFICATION Yes

 

For all types of exception data, Yes is the default for OPSMVS-EVENT-NOTIFICATION.

For all event notification, make sure the APIACTIVE parameter is set to ON in CA-OPS/MVS.

Events are processed by )API rules and are triggered by Event Notification.

 

The following is an example of an MVS event notification API rule:

)API CAGSVX0001

The following is an example of a Websphere MQ event notification API rule:

)API CAGSVS0001

The following is an example of an IMS event notification API rule:

)API CAGSVP0001

The following is an example of a CICS event notification API rule:

)API CAGSVY0001

The following is an example of a TCP/IP event notification API rule:

)API CAGSVN0001

 

The associated REXX variables for event notification for MVS, CICS, Websphere MQ, IMS and TCP/IP exception data can be found in the CA SYSVIEW Administrator Guide
