Using the TOM programming interface
Some of the TOM object-management functions that you can schedule from REXX EXECs include the following actions:
Add, change, delete object, set, layer, and calendar definitions
Starting, stopping, or bouncing an object (or set of objects)
Setting a user property for an object (or set)
Changing an object’s control mode between SUSPEND and ACTIVE
When performing custom automation that involves functions such as starting, stopping or bouncing an object, BMC recommends you use MainView AutoOPERATOR Rules instead of writing and scheduling REXX EXECs. Using Rules automation is simpler, uses less resources, and is easier to maintain than using EXECs. TOM object-management functions such as START, STOP, and RESET can be issued as actions from a Rule.
