Introduction:

CA Scheduler JM r11 provides an interface with IBM Health Checker for z/OS to scan the system for potential problems with CA Scheduler JM. This Knowledge Document will describe the CA Scheduler setup requirements for Health Checker.

Instructions: 

CA Scheduler JM provides two health check routines to the IBM Health Checker for z/OS. The first routine verifies that the CA Scheduler JM started task is active for all defined CA Scheduler JM subsystems. The second routine verifies that each CA Scheduler JM started task is receiving events from CAIENF.

To activate the CA Scheduler JM Health Checker interface, add the following CAS9 HEALTH statement to the CA Scheduler JM CAIRIM initialization options:

 
 CAS9 HEALTH  TASKS=nn, 
              EVENTS=nn  

Tasks=nn This value tells Health Checker how often to check that all CA Scheduler JM started tasks are active. Valid value is 1 to 60 minute interval.
Value of zero defines the IBM Health Checker for z/OS check but makes it inactive.
EVENTS=nn This value tells Health Checker how often to check that all active copies of CA Scheduler JM are receiving CAIENF events. Valid value is 1 to 60 minute interval. Value of zero defines the IBM Health Checker for z/OS check but makes it inactive.

  • The CAS9 HEALTH statement must be defined on the CA Scheduler JM with subsystem name SCHD (SUBSYS=SCHD).
  • The CA Scheduler JM CAILOAD must be in the link list.
