I was how can i have an hourly display of DASD in our system. I want to use this for monitoring purposes
Thanks in advance
im not sure if there is automated, but the operators used to check it every 1 hour last time. I know if you use tivoli, you will be able to get the information on the interval that has been set.
Please define “hourly display”. Do you want some workstation session always active and in view, and it should show… what? Should it refresh itself? Do you want a list of drives? Do you want percentage active? …percentage capacity used? Do you want details of each drive or just system totals? What do you expect to do with it? What kind of system — AS/400? iSeries? i? What OS version? — Tom
Hi Tom, because I’m an operator. i wanted something that is automated. coz even if we do have a all the session up because we are handling like 12 session i wanted that i will prompt me every hour the System Storage used, number of user signed on, and even batch jobs message waiting for answer. We use a iSeries and os V5R4M5
It can all be created, but it will be a significant programming effort that doesn’t have a clear purpose. E.g., what is the point of knowing how many users are logged on (and which definition of “logged on” will you use)?
What do you want to have happen under which circumstances? You can set Management Central monitors to track most related things for you so that you don’t need a special display.
The DSPSYSSTS ASTLVL(*BASIC) command gives the items from your latest request. It doesn’t have an auto-refresh option, but you might be able to set an iSeries Access macro to send the <F5> key every ten minutes or so. I’d say that using the system functions that already exist would be a better direction, though.
When you say “12 sessions”, do you mean that an operator has 12 sessions running? Or are there only “12 sessions” active on the entire system at any given time? (Either one doesn’t seem to make much sense.)
Your latest request goes far beyond the original area of “an hourly display of DASD”, and that area still hasn’t been described. There are many aspects of “DASD”, but it’s not clear what you want to see nor why you need to see it since the system can take automatic steps.
