This is not Question. This is an Idea. Hope this might be useful for any of you to Automate your Job Monitoring on AS/400.
We have human team to monitor jobs running on our AS/400 production servers and alert OnCall person when they find any issue. The human dependency is avioded. I have built component on AS/400 to capture incidents and sends HTTP call to PagerDuty (www.pagerduty.com). PagerDuty triggers phone call immediately. I used Scot Klement's HTTP API component to make HTTP calls. We found this very accurate and useful.
Tools on AS/400 sends request for following incidents.
- Job Not Started after it's group/dependent
- Job Not Ended at Given Time
