How it works
Monitoring IBM i (AS400)
Hybrid MESSAGE monitors QSYSOPR of IBM i, and sends messages to a monitoring PC. It classifies messages, and notifies operators by email or rotary beacon light, according to its category and schedule. For example, when IBM i generates critical hardware messages on QSYSOPR, Hybrid MESSAGE notifies operators of the messages by both rotary beacon light and email at any time, twenty-four hours. When IBM i received files, Hybrid MESSAGE notifies operators of the messages by just email during business hours.
In addition to QSYSOPR, Hybrid MESSAGE can monitor the following items as well.
|QHST||: Allow to optimize operation.|
|JOB||: Detect unexpected job behavior in real-time.|
|FTP||: Detect operation of FTP and received files.|
Map View shows a graphical representation of your machines. Map View shows a graphical representation of your machines. In the view, each machine's icon provides information about its status.
Operators can also record their operations for each message on Hybrid MESSAGE Viewer. It could be a report of troubleshooting, and export it to CSV file, and print the image. It allows to create a report quickly.
Message generated by Operation System is already categorized by Hybrid MESSAGE. So, you do not have to classify messages. Actions can be taken for each category or message. The followings are example of categories.
- Hardware Failure Message
- Job Failure Message
- Receiving FTP Files
- Checking File Size
- Tape Operation Message
- Printer Operation Message
- Network Failure Message
- User Defined Message (including Application Message)
Integration with Open System
Integrated Viewer for Zabbix (IVZ) is a Zabbix based monitoring tool, which is provided by VINX. Zabbix is an open source monitoring software for networks, operating systems and applications, created in Latvia, and widely used in the world. IVZ can also monitor IBM i by making use of Hybrid MESSAGE. It allows consolidated monitoring system, and cost reduction, by providing a single monitoring device for both IBMi and open system.
