What is a good way to moniter when QINTER is inactive? So if QINTER isn't up I need to know, since no one can log in at that point.

I am using iSeries Navigator  VR5.4.0

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

create a command that can run from another subsystem that tries to start the Qinter subsystem and monitor for the message when it errors out.

for example: (not real code, but you get the idea)

Alpha: Pgm

StrSbs Qinter
MonMsg MsgId(CPF1010) /* Error message if system is already active */

Omega: EndPgm

In this method, the Qinter subsystem is started if it is not already active, and if it is, it just “falls through”.

this can be put on your IBM job scheduler to run every 300 seconds, five minutes, or whatever time you want to wait for it.

this prevents you from having to have a third-part software solution to monitor the subsystem and saves you money in the long run.

    I'm not familiar with Nagios monitoring AS400, but you might want to look into it. If you can get Nagios to monitor the AS400, I'm sure that it could mnoitor the QINTER service. Hope this helps! -Schmidtw

    I'd suggest more concern over the reasons that QINTER isn't active when it should be. I've never run into a system that needed monitoring of QINTER for active status. If the QINTER subsystem isn't active, then any other subsystem can also be inactive. That means that any service running on your AS/400 that you want to act as a monitor has as good a chance as QINTER not to be active. What is happening to QINTER that it needs monitoring? Who keeps ending it inappropriately? Tom

    “Say, Tom, let me whitewash a little.” Tom considered, was about to consent; but he altered his mind: “No – no – I reckon it wouldn’t hardly do, Ben. You see, Aunt Polly’s awful particular about this fence – right here on the street, you know – but if it was the back fence I wouldn’t mind and she wouldn’t. Yes, she’s awful particular about this fence; it’s got to be done very careful; I reckon there ain’t one boy in a thousand, maybe two thousand, that can do it the way it’s got to be done.”
