Description:

Is there a method to monitor the active application count so we could send e-mail notifications when we reached a specific percentage of the max active setting or a specific number of active applications so that we could take action to correct the problem before it reaches the max number?

Solution:

Yes, there is a way in CA Workload Automation (CAWA) to monitor for active application such that the CAWA server sends email notification when it reaches a number of the threshold value. Use the parameters 'active.appl.gen.notify=' and 'active.appl.gen.stop=' in the 'espresso.properties' file (located in the CAWA Server installation directory) to setup the notification and CAWA Server shutdown threshold respectively.

## Notifications are sent when the number of active applications reachesthis number.          
## 500 is the default value.          
 #active.appl.gen.notify=500 
## The server shuts down automatically when the number of activeapplications reaches this number.       
## 600 is the default value.       
## Uncomment next line, increase the number and restart if you think yourserver can handle more.       
 #active.appl.gen.stop=600 

The change will be effected when you restart the CAWA server.
