Using Alarm Management

MainView Alarm Management provides the MainView product family with the ability to perform true management by exception.

MainView Alarm Management creates alarm reports based on performance goals that are continuously monitored. When a performance goal is not within acceptable parameters, an alarm report is created. An alert can be created based on the report to trigger an automated action.

MainView Alarm Management monitors multiple targets on multiple systems simultaneously. You can display a single view that shows alerts for all MainView performance monitors within your MVS enterprise. Using alarm definitions, any data element from any MainView product can be used to generate alarm reports based on user-defined thresholds that trigger the following actions:

  • Create MVS console messages

  • Create an alarm report that can be processed by MainView AutoOPERATOR

  • Call MainView AutoOPERATOR

  • Call Control-O

  • Issue user defined MVS console command
