Looking for information on Agent status in ESP

  • 1.  Looking for information on Agent status in ESP

    Posted 04-28-2020 10:10 AM
    Good morning,
    I recently retrieved information for management on the status of defined agents in our ESP environment. This was a simple grab from the agentdef member. I also did a Oper Agent command and pulled those agents that showed as No Active Session. I am being asked when the last time these No Active Session agents were active, if ever. Is there a way that I can find this information?
    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Try the command below in pagemode and see if it gets you what you need.
    ESPCOM DEST(-) LIST

    While this will not help you now, the process below could help for future requests.

    In our environment ESP is recycled weekly.

    We set up a job to execute the ESPCOM DEST(-) command shortly before the recycle.

    The information is written to a data set with the following name:
    <HLQ>.<ESP Subsys>.AGENTS.DYYMMDD.THHMMSS

    This creates a weekly snapshot of what agents are used.

    After running for a period of time you can use the SRCHFOR <Agent Name> to locate the data sets it is in, which will show what week the agent was no longer used.
