Setting up Alert Management

This procedure describes how to set up Alert Management.

To set up Alarm Management

Modify BBPARM member BBOTA000 as shown in the following example:
<mvalert>

- Specify that information from all Alert repositories
  in the OS/390 image are to be displayed in this
  MVALERT service point:

   <ssid>
      <include>    *
      </include>
   </ssid>
-
</mvalert>

Following table describes the tags used in the BBOTA000 BBPARM member.

Tag

Description

<mvalert>

Marks the beginning of the MVALERT control sequence. This tag must be matched with a </mvalert> tag at the end.

<ssid>

Marks the beginning of the subsystem ID (SSID) control sequence. This tag must be matched with a </ssid> closing tag.

<include> ssidmask1 ssidmask2...

Identifies one or more wildcard SSIDs of alert repository address spaces (either MainView Alarm Management or MainView AutoOPERATOR). This tag must be matched with a subsequent </include> tag.

Address spaces with SSIDs that match one of the wildcard masks are the source of alerts presented by Alert Management.

<exclude> ssidmask1 ssidmask2...

Identifies one or more wildcard SSIDs of alert repository address spaces (either MainView Alarm Management or MainView AutoOPERATOR). This tag must be matched with a subsequent </exclude> tag.

Address spaces with SSIDs that match one of the wildcard masks are not used as a source of alerts presented by Alert Management.

Note

When determining whether a particular alert repository should be included or excluded, the <exclude> sequence takes precedence. That is, if the SSID matches a mask in the <exclude> sequence, it is not used as a source, even if it also matches a mask in the <include> sequence.
